    It's somewhat likely that the model on Acrimony is wearing a size down.

    ForwardForward might have measurements under sizing & fit iirc

    Or email Acrimony.

    I'd probably lean towards the 50, it's something you want to fit roomy imo. Plus it's nice to wear over sweaters or even light jackets

    good eye, didn't even notice that. i'd prefer the single breast pocket that the brown version has, but i prefer the purple color as the brown doesn't seem as dark as acrimony's picture makes it look


    checked forward but couldn't find the item page. is there a way to look up items that are out of stock? asked acrimony for measurements but haven't heard back. seems odd that they would give the same model two different sizes of the jacket to wear, if you are saying that he is wearing a size down in the purple vs the brown.

    Here you go, measurements are listed

    Also added to above post

    Good point about the model but the brown one is from last season so at least they wouldn't be photo'ing different sizes at the same time.
    I guess it's possible the fit could change that much, the way the past few seasons have been

    Either way, this looks way better than on Acrimony so like I said I'd err on the larger side

    I'm not a fan of the double pocket.

    Waiting on the single pocket Spring 2014 one.

    purple looks great, and even better in melo's pic.

    Yes. Solid look, there.
    How's that coating feel?

    Is that the 'brown' zip blazer?
    Obviously not a perfectly color accurate pic, but it looks like it slides between brown and brownish-green??

    Also, shouldn't you be sporting at least 2-3 more layers, plus a scarf and jewelry to achieve maximum gellerz?

    Has anyone handled the Mohair Combo Sweatshirt Charcoal from this season? I like the looks of it, but fit pics I've seen make it seem a hulk-sized in the arms, but I'm wondering if that's from the thick cotton used and if that settles or not. It seems TTS, but can anyone confirm?

    Handled it, but haven't tried it on. Pretty sure it fits short too, so watch out there. Arms are definitely a thick cotton. I would guess it's TTS in body but perhaps a weird fit in length and arms.

    It doesn't feel like it's a thick coat or anything. I'm curious to see how it breaks in...and how the coating fades.

    The zip blazer is technically labeled "khaki" I believe...but it's really a dark brown olive. It might be my favorite thing this season.

    Seconds tee looks nice with the other stuff, and I really like the little peek of the contrast back

    I've been lurking a long time, finally decided to post. :)


    I have it, although I have the actual sample from that runway pic. As far as I can tell, it's consistent with the production versions. And it's consistent with all my other Geller tops - I basically get a 48 in all tops and outwear.


    I have both the purple melange from the FW13 runway, and the black fleece version from FW12 production. I placed them next to each other and the cut is exactly the same save for the pocket detailing. The fleece from '12 is heavier though, so the fit is a bit more 'solid,' while the '13 melange drapes more. In fact, the melange almost feels like it would be a spring weight were it not for the texture (which is awesome in person), but the fabric is surprisingly warm. It's a great color too.



    I wasn't as into the double pockets either originally just by looking at it, but after putting it on it's a totally different story. With the nubby fabric, the pockets actually tend to disappear on the body, but the flaps seem to help give it more structure since the fabric is lighter.

    Melo has reached level 27!

    Which vest is that?
    I just returned an eBay'd Geller vest that I bought out of spite of losing the black Y!JP one. Figured I'd never wear it.

    thanks for the feedback. Acrimony just got to me with some measurements, in case anyone else is also looking.

    48
    Length: 28.25"
    Shoulder: 18"
    Chest: 21"

    50
    Length: 29"
    Shoulder: 19"
    Chest: 23"

    Will probably end up getting the 50, even though the sleeves will undoubtedly be too long and require some tailoring.

    Ever since whatever the season the first CP collab combat boots with spats came out been wanting to try that combat boots / thermal longjohns / large wool shorts look for the winter but with all due seriousness there was no chance in hell of me incorporating that look into my everyday casual look for... winter for fuq sakes. Looks good with that quilted vest tho.

    It's the FW12 one you were trying to get



    Measurements on that look the same as my sz 44 from FW11 :hide:



    That was my reasoning as well...for some reason my Geller thermals make the shorts bunch up all funky but I remembered I have some nice bamboo leggings from MJK back in the day.
    Does the trick nicely. I'll probably take some real pics of this this weekend


    PS. who's going to pick up those Harald dresses on ebay for cross dressing on the weekends??
