    Talking of the biker jeans... I can't believe they've shot up I. Price yet again. If memory serves in 2013 they were £670ish, in 2014 £790-£810 and now they are north of £880 for SS15?!!!

    With that in mind I popped into Joseph men's store in london today and they had 40% off, they had size 30 and 32.. So £790 down to £475 for brand new in case anyone fancies a bargain :satisfied:

    This new season isn't exactly to my taste either.

    The price increases are also very unwelcome, and are all the more questionable considering how much stronger the dollar has gotten vs. the euro in the last 6-8 months.

    Seems like the accountants and MBAs are now running the brand, not Hedi.

    If you think Hedi was ever coming up with pricing for the brand, I think you'd be mistaken. He has a lot more to worry about, so to think he is sitting there trying to make sure leather pants with zippers on them hit a certain price point is a bit much.
    The prices are going up because of a multitude of things; cost of materials, manufacturing, runway shows, new store constructions/renovations, other marketing initiatives, as well as demand.

    Of course Hedi isn't responsible for the pricing of the products and rising demand can explain why the prices have gone up. But I don't believe that quality issues like the smaller pieces of leather they use for the shoes and the added seams are part of his original design. If the quality of the products remain the same I'll appreciate.

    Does anybody know if they changed the zipper of the white 15.5 MII or why is it different from the black raw MIJ?

    This bomber always looks better on a hanger than on me, and Barbara Martelo makes me want to just give up trying. Any tips on how to make the bomber jacket work?

    ^ Which season is your one from? I tried the one from AW13 and it looked great, whereas the one from AW14 looked awful. It could just be my memory, but I think they changed them a bit.

    I got it in '13. I didn't try on the one from FW14, but at least for coats the sizing was wildly different, so it could be that. I had a hard time sizing my clothes this season. My SA said the boxier fit was intentional, which I could tell from the show, but I thought it was more than that.

    I got ^ from FW13 in size 46 and and the same coat (they did switch to a wool blend, and not that many places stocked them) in black from FW14 in size 44. I compared them side by side and the cut and style seemed to be exactly the same, but the 46 was more fitted.

    I'm guessing ssense has a further reduction the past few days? the light wash SLP jeans I wanted are now sold-out. Last I checked last week, there was pretty much a FSR.

    I recently picked up this jacket from a local deadstock shop, and really not finding much info about it online, can any of you perhaps enlighten me? Size XL, but fits like a S/M

    It's from AW13, but the actual jacket (minus the chain design) is the same as the one from SS13 which was featured in the "Skinny" look book. There was also a silk shirt with the "dead rat" motif on it from AW13.

    Hi guys,

    Slightly off-topic but I feel familiar with this thread (I signed up to and have only posted in here)... I returned a Balmain bacpack from the sale back to ssense (from UK) and I can see from the tracking they took delivery of it on Tuesday 23rd December but have had absolutely no response as to a refund back onto my card - I have followed up the original ticket as well as creating a new one (may be shouldn't have done this) but still nothing - is this attributable to the time of year? I want my $980 back :(.

    I want to try avoid ringing a canadian telephone number at ~$1.50 a minute from the UK if possible.

    Thanks
