    off chance, but while I've seen this mesh undershirt in black, anyone carrying the undershirt in this burgundy color?

    Thanks! After seeing that Gilt fit pic though, not sure I like it as much as I thought.

    Talking with the guy @ acrimony, he told me that RG had changed all the patterning for this season. I had thought initially I would be a 50 in the zip blazer and then hate it because the sleeves would be way too long, but apparently I'm a 48 now. I had size 48 shirts from the sample sale and they were too tight in the arm. I tried some 48s this weekend at Barneys and the sleeve width were fine this time around. Maybe he did tweak his fits. Also, I think seconds runs big. I picked up the small in the hoodie. I have come to the conclusion that RG is dope as hell and everything tends to look better in person than in the pictures online.

    Also, I know someone was asking about the mesh undershirt earlier and it definitely felt a lot more substantial than it looks. It was pretty heavy. Maybe not heavy heavy, but heavier than I would have thought an open weave tank top layer would be...

    Weird, I'm a 46 and would need to size up in the hoodie. A small could work for me, but it'd be too slim I think.

    I found my Seconds Tank from this season to fit TTS leaning slighty big.
    The material is less soft and stretchy so it behooves the material to fit slightly looser.

    Have not tried on anything else from this season but this makes me very curious to try a few things on.

    I definitely feel like Geller has been tweaking things over the past couple seasons to land on something a little more solid both for sizing/patterning and fit, and from a business sense.
    (changing some production locations, pricing, Seconds being re-integrated, etc)

    One thing that's always a little frustrating is that you rarely get a vision from an independent designer about what they're changing and why.
    Not that it's necessarily any of our business but context helps!

    That's odd. I'm an XS and I found the sz S Seconds tank to be tight as fuck this season. Smaller than FW11 Seconds tanks in XS

    Those photos are awful. Cool to see they have some buys that no one else got, though.

    Been waiting for them to put their stuff online.
    Pricing is really cheap, too bad no 44s and very little 46

    In other news, I just received that white Summer Parka from SS10, sized up 2. Fits amazing! So happy
    Will have to take a fake fit pic, won't be wearing it out until spring

    Nice, I was asking the guy about that, but I figured a 48 would be too big on me.
