    I can't decide on this seasons Richard... Some places it looks awesome (NMWA, Maas, Toto) other places it looks too loose and cardigany (Acrimony, Forward). I think I might just save and go for the Thomas coat if its still around in a month.
    And what was everybody's opinion of the zip blazer from last fall? The charcoal, flecked tweedy one? Was it warm? I think it was fully-lined, right?

    Based on what you've posted about yourself, it probably wouldn't be loose on you. My arms aren't that big these days and the sleeves on a 52 were still about as trim as I'd want them to be. The fabric is forgiving, but it's sturdier than most cardigans. You can flip the collar and it stands easily, for instance.

    It's unlined, which helps give it that relaxed vibe, but the fabric wouldn't seem out of place used for other casual blazers.

    Well, by "loose" I meant the knit/fabric itself. Like loose as in not very structured or rigid, I didn't mean it as "baggy".
    But yeah my issue with Geller has always been the sleeves and chest, it's usually doable in looser knits and only really an issue in shirting and things that need to be buttoned and don't have much give. I was thinking that the jackets would probably be fine.thanks for all the info though.

    I would do a 52. The arms were only slightly long on me and I have a notoriously bad time finding sweaters and outerwear with arms that aren't too long.

    Damn. Keeping my fingers crossed I'll be able to grab a pair of the black track shoes for 50% off this time, but I probably shouldn't get my hopes up

    So, why are the collab footwear always 50-60% more expensive than their CP counterparts?

    Is it?:

    (a) both geller and CP taking their markups (so 2 markups)
    (b) better materials
    (c) japan import fees
    (d) hype markup

    all of the above? anything else I miss?

    Don't get me wrong, I have the RGxCP suede combat boots and I really like them, but had to get them on pretty deep discount and that equaled to about CP retail...and we know CP typically isn't worth retail...

    I'd say definitely A and D. I don’t believe the quality is any better than the regular CP. And if it is, nothing that would justify to double the price.

    Think I might try to track down another pair of flight pants now. Kinda regretting selling the pair I got from melonadejello. The 46 from SS11 was a little too big...I'm guessing 44's are only available in Japan? And even if I find one, those probably never make it to sale and I'd have to get it full priced? Probably similar deal with the 46, but higher chance of 46 hitting the resell market.

    Metal plate in the heel perhaps?
    His actual line is extremely affordable.

    And how about those garbage Achilles Tim Coppens has done? What, 610? Yeah right.

    Nah, most places tend to carry 44s for them. Black Easy Pants seem to have sold out quick in 44s this season but I think the herringbone is pretty cool.

    Those ss11 cotton/linen ones were bigger than usual, so you might try 46s again these days, if you have the option to return. I've noticed sweats and Richard stuff running pretty small in the waist the past few seasons

    Those ones I sold you was one of probably less than 10 pairs of Flight Pants I've ever seen on yjp, they don't pop up very often there

    I actually just sold a pair of 44s from fw14, sorry! But I've come to realize that I strongly prefer cropped ones, which is why I sold the long ones. They look better with low tops and there's no break when you wear them with boots/hi tops

    Thanks for the explanation. This is why you're one of my favorite and obviously one of the most helper posters around =). I'll keep an eye out I guess. And yea, I started looking at them again like a week after you sold your 44 >_>
