    And if you do, you better make sure that the jacket matches the pants exactly(same dye) or else......

    I'm thinking of getting this Geller AW08 Moleskin Bomber on Grailed:

    [​IMG]

    Looks in great condition, price is also fair, only problem is that it's an M and I'm an S.

    The guy says that it fits like an S, is that true for Geller sizing?

    Thanks

    Yup, the guy says it is, other Geller jackets seem to say the same.

    I'm also not sure whether or not to shell out nearly $300 (Can probably lower the dude, he wants $288) for a 7 year old coat...

    You probably don't wanna see the prices on old Raf, Helmut Lang and Rick then...

    You should get it, it's pretty dope, moleskin wears really good and it's more about condition than age.

    Oh yeah I saw the 2nd hand prices of those on Grailed, but didn't yet see a 7 year old one...


    The more and more I look at it the more I want it... I am just waiting for the dude to send me a fit pic to see how the M looks. I think I probably will get it.

    There's some late 90's and early 2000's HL that floats around from time to time.

    Still looking for a bondage bomber in my size or a camel toned chesterfield. :foo: Some of the painted stuff is really cool too.

    Just saw this nice merino henley at Apolis:

    http://store.apolisglobal.com/knits/transit-issue-merino-henley/#charcoal

    Sizing question, according to their website measurements, I should be an XS, this henley measures 18.75" chest which is 95CM, my chest size is 92.5CM (46).

    I usually wear an S across the board, was wondering if Apolis usually run big, due to being an American brand?

    Thanks

    They say Large has a 21-inch chest width, and 20.25 for Medium. I wouldn't call that running big.

    Only problem is that I don't have any XS items in my wardrobe aside from the Acne Limit Tee which runs a bit big, I usually get an S in everything, and according to their measurements, I should be an XS. Just wondering if that's the case.

    That Geller bomber is one of his best pieces and also runs a full size small - much smaller than a current season M

    Remember that your actual chest measurement =/= optimal garment p2p unless your aim is a skin-tight fit. There should be a few cm of wiggle room--measure a shirt that you have that fits well to see what p2p measurement to look for when you're shopping online. Makes life a whole lot easier than making decisions based off hearsay alone.

    Yeah I did that earlier actually, my chest is 92.5CM, most of my stuff are somewhere between 94-96CM, there's definitely some wiggle room, I don't wear skin tight. The Acne Limit in XS for example is 94CM, fits me perfect and has at least 2CM of space between the fabric and the skin.

    The apolis piece, while tagged as XS measure 96CM chest according to their website (I even called them to ask), so I went ahead with the XS, worst case, I'll do a return and get an S...

    Sounds good, usually as long as the chest and shoulders look right there's usually not much need to worry about tagged size
