    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Size 4 is usually a 38 = medium but n(n) sizing is all over the place in my experience, even within seasons.

    The Sarti isn't worth what they're charging IMO but he's underselling it a little bit. The color is very very nice and it's got a ton of volume if you roll it up and wear it like a normal scarf (rather than as a stole like he's doing). It was pretty soft but I was expecting more for the price.

    What's your definition of a good price? Yoox has staples down to $300 if you're quick. Raf suits are decent and would fit your build I think.

    It's a recent one I'm pretty sure like Zeemon said and if so quality will be mixed.

    Reedo you've lusted over a bunch of stuff recently and a black suit isn't one of them... are you buying it cause you want a black suit or because it's cheap?

    Actually I've had my eye on a slim black suit for at least 4 months (check my old WTB classifieds). Just been waiting for the right one. Finally cooled off buying a bunch though, and I don't feel super ready to start again

    The shiny wedge ones? I dunno they look cool in photos but seem to look like trash in real life...I do like their normal plain officer derbies though.

    I'm just worried that they might not fit. Anyone have any experience with Yigal trouser sizing?

    Those seem pretty skinny considering you were looking at RRL cuts the other day

    Yeah, that's what I'm worried about. However, these have 5% elastic in them, so maybe they'd be alright? But maybe they'd just look like sausage casings. :uhoh:

    All I know is that if I'm wearing a pair of pants and they've no stretch, then they better damn well be at least 11.5'' at the thigh...

    Really depends on the measurements; if it's similar to a pant you'd wear without stretch or only marginally smaller it's just going to give you some flexibility and comfort. If not....sausage casing.

    The unfortunate issue is that I can't seem to find measurements for the thighs anywhere. Only waist, inseam, and hem are available on ssense. :(

    IIRC ssense model isn't that small in the thigh so you're probably fine.
