    if not will pass it on to one of you! based on my other experience with yohji footwear it should be around a US 11...5? give or take.

    Yeah, generally that's about right. I'm a US 10 and a sz 4 in most YY footwear. However, I think these particular ones from SS10 run at least a size big though.

    Gilt's website claims they are a 9.5, but that seems really really off since my 4 fits me and I'm also a 10-10.5. Really hoping they were only one size off and not two, but likely they are too big [​IMG]...

    Did you get them in a 4? I haven't actually tried these on, so I might be wrong. If you're about 10.5 maybe they could fit you. Would be interested to hear about the sizing of these when you get them.

    Nah got them in a 5 (which is why i found Gilt's sizing guide so strange)--since that was the smallest size on Gilt--will let you know.

    Isn't it pretty much common knowledge by now that you should never trust gilt's sizing?

    Gilt can go fuck themselves.....the ones I bought aren't size 10s.....they are like 11s, whatever size 5 actually is

    Size 5 is actually, usually, sz 11.

    don't follow your style too closely, but i say go for it if you think the dimensions will work for you. i do like the back view.
    [​IMG] geller flannel, idk if i really want to buy plaid right now but i kinda like the colour. donno if i can justify $200 on it though
    no
    thinking of this:http://sevennewyork.com/men/mens-des...on/f0tiha-cs11 since i missed out on this: http://www.ssense.com/men/product/la..._t-shirt/31383 diff colour but still silky goodness
    not as appealing in this dark gray metallic color, imo silk weave can be highly contrasty like that, looks nicer in muted colors like the off white one. however it may work for your aesthetic, and you can post feedback in the LNT thread

    Thoughts?


    Try it on first. Also if the sleeves are too long and they do gimmicky working cuffs you will have the devil of a time shortening them (the sleeves). And make sure shade/texture is good, especially important with neutrals and versatile pieces.
