Anyone know if the following 2016 shirt was cut slim fitting and so need to size up one?

I usually wear XS for the cotton flannels.

New collection is not good
I liked retro-suits in the beginning but the collection is gimmicky AF, like its just a show and that's it, I suspected variations on the theme of liquid suit from women's collection, but not whole pantyhose (?) suits?? Coats are also meh, winter 23 was much better IMO. Liquid pants look very cool though, as an idea

Putting Collins music and a model styled as young Yves were so cringe, like Saint Laurent: Electric Boogaloo or Disney bought YSL and made a remake, like *********** up the whole 'worldbuilding' part so much. And it's the same location as FW23. Boah, I am quite disappointed, especially by the show, especially after such a good womanswear one.

Watched the show again and I think its better that I thought initially, a lot of atelier flex (many brands did that this FW) with those liquid suits, but I think the collection is unsellable - men even with big money won't buy suits of this material (while women may buy transparent stuff from women's collection), why would they buy Anderson-Sheppard clones made out of stockings material???, I guess actual sold items would be from more practical materials, or suits would be marketed to women entirely.

I looked at some pics on wwd. It's definitely not for me, but I also wonder who would buy one of those loose suits. I realize it's trying to be retro (eighties by way of 1940's), but I just can't envision someone rocking it casually or at their office job in 2024.

Oversized 80s-like suits for women from winter 23 are also unwearable for office jobs, unless it's someone like Catherine Tramell. The only type of person who would unironically buy these suits are some modern Ludwig II types (they do exist but not many), apparently Vaccarello watched way too much Visconti.

I just saw it and similar to others, I liked some of the suits. However, I realized why I like them. They seem to be modeled on Husbands Paris, who are one of my absolute favorites. They are bigger than Husbands, but that takes them out of the, "I could wear that" range. I actually would wear Husbands.

I can't comment on the liquid suits and coats. They are beyond my ability to critique.

Does anyone have experience with this coat (from 2015 FW code 397010)?

saint-laurent-fall-winter-2015-menswear-collection-paris-fashion-week-025.jpg


Measurement that I find indicate that its not ultraslim and shoulders are not super narrow, although you can never trust Hedi's collections on that.


Also, I saw this current permanent collection one (code 758054):

any info on this one? Mytheresa fit pics are weird, although measurements indicate that its not superslim

Need some advice. I worn my L01 last year when it was way too hot for it for a long time to the point where there is bad body odor coming from the pit area. Have no idea how to get rid of the smell. Any advice on how to eliminate the odor?

Make a baking soda paste and rub it into armpits, leave it for some time (like a day), it will dry, remove with slightly wet tissues or a vacuum cleaner. Although it might not be that simple if you left it like that for a year.

This is safe to do on silk? It has a silk lining.

Can someone clarify this thing: I noticed that older Hedi's jackets, and some other jackets, have a slight asymmetry, and one sleeve hangs like a spiral, slightly 'twisted'. Is this intentional? What's the story behind it? I noticed this but didn't pay much attention to this stuff until I saw someone on thefashionspot raving about.
