    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.

    That Dior puffer looks like a mall-brand rip-off of a (non-TB) Moncler jacket. I shudder to imagine the cost.

    +1 on the Gamme Bleu being the only worthwhile option of the three.

    It looks like one of those pieces where the sizing doesn't matter all that much. That said, I'm ten pounds heavier than you and L is usually perfect; his knits seem to fit more consistently than his other clothes.

    Both are Jil, both around $300. Which one? Or should I hold out in case I find some metallic Jil knit that's miraculously my size?

    I have that black one, it's pretty sweet, really soft. Fits kinda boxy iirc.

    I think grey knits end up being kind of bland and hard to pair, but that might just be my wardrobe. The black one is more interesting but doesn't look like it can be worn under anything.

    one thing to be careful about that seller is that he exaggerates the condition of what he's selling (read: lies). when he and i traded zam pants, he said his were NWOT, when they were clearly worn rather frequently.

    I have this in red and like it OK. The fabric and knit trim are nice, way better than your average nylon coach's jackets, which are essentially disposable. the underside of the collar has the same striped trim as the cuffs. It's not a really "wow" sorta jacket, though, and it lasted to deep sale online (<$100, if I remember right).

    Tender shirt, will probably be somewhat "oversized" in the available size

    Viberg x Free & Easy, on sale in Tokyo for just over $400 (half price) and in my (very small) size.

    The only reason I'm hesitating is that I can probably get a highly recommended young shoemaker here to hand make me something pretty similar for not much more, but I do like these a lot. I am waiting for my current commission (for a pair of bicoloured brown/tan boots) to be finished, and if it turns out that I don't like what he does as much as I hope, these may already be sold out.

    So, what do you reckon?

    If you know you like them and you know you want them and you know they are available and that you will be happy with them, I'm not sure why you would bother to attempt a more expensive custom order when you're not even confident you'd enjoy the result.

    Your logic is impeccable. I guess that: 1. I like the idea of supporting up and coming local artisans; and 2. the custom boots would fit perfectly (his measurements are pretty comprehensive). But I will go try these ones again tomorrow and decide. :)

    djt00 i bought the goggle beanie 2 years ago
    you can't see through the goggles when you wear it like shown in your pic
    you have to turn down the brim and wear the beanie inside out
    it isn't lined or something, but the tags are on the inside, i removed them with a seamripper

    Yeah, I know. How do you like it? I like the concept, but not sure if I'd wear it. 62 euros shipped is a pretty good price though.
