do you personally think their garments should be at lower or high or the current price is fine when compared to other designer.

I’ll watch some interviews from the current CC and in the future see the pieces in store
I really wasn't interested in the brand until a couple years ago, so I dunno. I sometimes look at used/vintage Jil though, and it's all over the place. The skinny stretchy minimal stuff made while Jil was gone from the brand just looks bad to me.

If you mean other designers in general, I guess people should pay for what they like and believe in and all that. Try it out! I think the quality and designs are great.

I personally can't afford most of the brand's offerings but can't complain about what I have bought...

My favorite brand of the moment. Honestly, nothing else is even similar...maybe The Row menswear? Bottega?

Anyone have purchased the Jil sander Arizona trouser for this season? I wonder if I should size down or tts? The waist difference seems minor like less than a inch for 2 sizes difference

I’d size down. I tried them in my normal size. The idea is they are loose fit and you cinch the waist and get a nice gathered affect. Same as the Argo shorts and some of the other styles they’ve done in past seasons and at OAMC (ie/ orbital pants).
But Ime even sizing down one will still get the effect but be a bit more manageable.

I just received the Anton blazer. This was one of my must haves from this season, but I kept holding off because I wanted black. But the grey/green is super nice. A little big in the shoulders right now but I’ll fill it back out.

Wait, so for the Argo shorts, you're saying I should size down? Looking at these right now.

I didn’t keep them. I tried the 50, which is my usual size.

@cl smooth yeah a size 50 Argo has a huge waist and even with the drawcord cinched they were still loose on me.

Take a look at #lemaire on IG and at least 1 in 5 outfits posted features a Jil piece. I would put less wacky MMM, recent BV, and to a lesser extent Our Legacy in a similar bracket as well.

The brands don't have a terrible amount in common but I also think there's a lot of synergy between some of what Jacquemus is putting out and summery Jil stuff.

Did you purchase it via ssense? I think a size 50 might work for me but they don’t have the size. Do you know any other website that stocks the pants? Thanks

What is 17?
42?

I have a black wool/mohair 41 that’s too big now and I really want to buy size smaller. I think yours is a size bigger though.
