    It depends on the item. Jil does manufacturing all over the place (just like Dior). I have some shirts that are MIJ that are clut slimmer and suits are cut differently depending on the season and styling. I would say the quality is probably slightly better than Dior, but it really depends on the individual pieces.

    [​IMG] G-star wool trench. It was a pain in the ass looking for a non-black single breasted wool coat that didn't look generic and didn't cost an arm and a leg. Now I just need to remove the G-star label from the left arm.

    Are you sure? As far as I know, Jil does all their manufacturing in Italy in house. They have their own factories even for suits and shoes. Church's used to manufacture their shoes but it is now in house except for the handmade lines which is done by Lattanzi.

    Maybe the MIJ was before?

    perhaps for this season, but in S/S they had a number of pieces that were manufactured in Japan.

    Nice pickup!

    J.M. Weston Triple-Leather Sole Tan Boxcalf Blucher Wingtips. My first pair of shoes with metal heel and toe taps, definitely let's them know you're coming. I just can't decide if I'm going to have them stretched a bit or go through the ordeal like a man. I got some Brown Scotch Grain Golf's about two months back that I lathered with Black Saphir, it's a cool effect but they definitely look ten years old now. Last and definitely not least my Tan Suede Leather Soul x Alden Indy Boots.

    How does the sizing run on JS shoes? I tried on a pair of loafers a year or so ago and recall having to size down. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out what my size would be (normally a US 9.5 or 10) would be, as they only had sizes that were way too small or too big.

    I don't own any Jil shoes, but at Saks I tried on a cool pair of 7.5 (8.5 US) and they were huge on my feet. I think I might have to size down a full size to 6.5 (7.5 US). You should never buy shoes unless you've tried them on before.

    In your case, is the 9.5 the size on the shoe/box (UK size, if I remember correctly), or the "US equivalent" size, i.e. UK 8.5/US 9.5? Hopefully that makes sense....
