    which model do you have? I have a pair (non-selvedge) tagged as "regular fit" which actually fit slimmer than my NS of a similar size. Picked em up for 70 from the tannery. I also have a couple of logo tees and two flannels.

    They're ok. Definitely seem better than standard h&m/UO fare but not pretending to be high end. I think it's pretty much as expected and worth getting pieces that are cool as it's a solid brand. I have a graphic tee, a mesh tee, and a black waxed trench (which i am trying to sell if someone wants)

    O hi Fuuma circa 5 years ago.

    Pretty damned solid necrobump, I must say.

    I haven't tried on the chelseas but personally I think s2a's shoes are well-made in general. For $135, you're not going to get anything remotely near that unless it's by Bostonian.

    FWIW, I've always liked the leathers they use, too, from their Justice jackets all the way down to their wallets.

    thanks whodini!

    gilt says they are TTS but who knows. i went with 45s which are ~11.5s which is my normal size. I wear 45s in YMC shoes so i hope these are similar.

    Yeah, gilt's sizing advice is pretty much useless... as is trying to figure out your size based on the models stats/size

    Hopefully they are TTS though, I went with the 41s and I'm usually an 8

    You should be fine. I'm 11/44 and the dress shoes I tried on a while ago fit fine. Didn't cop. [​IMG]

    any idea if I would be better off going with 44s/11s instead of 45s/12s? They are dress boots though, so they may not be oversized... not sure what to do, since i am a 11.5 US sizing....hmmm. also, any idea where i can kop this tee? i found it on s2as blog but cant find it in any online stores.http://www.surfacetoair.com/blog/wp-...10/I5T4503.jpg

    I don't know what to tell you about half-sizes, dude. If a 44 comes out to a 10.5, then a half-size up would fit like an 11. You'd need that 44 to fit you another half size up, or basically a full size up from its US translation. Don't know why you'd want to play it "safe" by going down when there are better solutions if something fits slightly too big than slightly too small.
