1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Wolf vs. Goat bamboo-sorona u-necks are the softest tees I've ever felt (more so than John Elliott): http://www.wolfvsgoat.com/collections/tees

    anyone know much about Ann Demeulemeester trouser sizing? it seems to be all over the place...
    i picked up an older season pair in a cotton/fleecewool mix, they are tagged XS but fit my 32" waist and soccer thighs perfectly, like slouchy/drapey top block with a good taper below the knee. so i ordered a current FW season pair in an S and they are tiny. did it all change at some point or is it just on a piece by piece basis?

    Fendi Monster. I am not buying it, but I really like it and I am not even a Chinese girl. [​IMG]

    at least since SS16 [when we started selling Ann / opened our retail store], Ann has fit 99% true to size [in both footwear and clothing].

    trousers for FW16 [at least the ones we got] fit on the larger side, but still closer to true to size than a full size large.

    things will always vary from season to season though, so always just best to check prior to purchase.

    How do you size these compared to John Elliott, same size? It's kind of hard to tell based on measurements when you don't know how high the armholes are.

    Same. I wear size 2/M in JE and M in WvG tees. Armholes are normal IIRC.

    The sleeves on WVG looked like woman sleeves on me. My arms are trained but not really that big either.

    I would only recommend dstld if you are slim and tall. I have to take a L in their tees and the length is too long to wear unless I am layering with something else. Collars haven't held up very well either.

    Can a mere mortal wear this Margiela zip front shirt? Or do you have to be @RegisDB9?
