    Thanks. Looks like B store haven't got new stock in yet but i'll keep an eye out. The last time I shipped across the atlantic was a disaster haha, so I won't be trying that again, and I would really like to be able to try schneider stuff on if the sizing is as off as people say...

    B store is the one on farfetch i think. Park doesn't seem to stock schneider anymore, besides it's in Austria so it's moot if you want to try stuff on first. Same goes for the stores in Belgium.

    I don't think the sizing to be that off, it's more that it's inconsistent from one category of items to another so you might have a hard time deciding what outerwear size you need if you only have experience with the knits for example, that sort of thing... But the only stuff I'd really be wary of buying blind is the suiting and the tailored coats, the rest can probably be figured out with some measurements and from previous experience.

    Hm, pretty boring buy in my opinion. I'm missing the more colorful pieces and especially the nicer knits and jackets.
    But that was probably only the first shipment...

    That buy is indeed really really weak. Ocean knit is great... the grey striped shirt meh. The cloud knit is okay too.

    You guys are harsh, it's an ok buy. They're playing it safe on the colored shirts and stuff but the pants and knits selection is pretty similar to SW current stock, iirc they had outerwear too last year so maybe there's more to come.

    True I'm definitely biased by lack of stuff I'm into, but other than the two knits I mentioned there isn't really much that says frozen waves versus simply schneider if that makes any sense. Need more blue! I don't find blue to be that striking of a color at least none of the ones he uses in the contexts he creates.

    True true. Anyway you look at it, with the amount of great pieces the collection has, every buy is bound to be disappointing, right ? :D

    I really hope that SW gets another shipment in, otherwise I might have to take a trip to Antwerp D: D: D:

    Opening Ceremony has a few new pieces on their website including that nice looking coat with the knit liner - seems to be pretty reasonably priced too.

    Too bad they picked the dumb color of the two. Nothing says "frozen waves" like a camel coat :teach:
