    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I like them both, so here let me help you decide

    Are you trying to figure out which one is more "fun," which one adds more "pop" or "pizzazz" to your "wardrobe?" Then go for the Margiela. The shape is more distinctive and, well, it's sky blue.

    Are you looking for a backup for something you already have or to restock your basics? Then it's all about the second one. Very basic shape and color. Good staple jacket.

    So yeah-- second one is the practical choice. First one is the fun choice. Not saying you can't have fun with the second-- I certainly could. That's just the one thing that separates them. I hope that made things easier!

    thanks all...this will be more for fun so maybe that is a good way to approach this...


    already did :embar:

    I can't decide if I am going to post a fit pic because it will invite unflattering comparisons with Fuuma who wore it better for sure....but I might have to man up and take the beating that is due.....

    that margiela sold a few hours after I posted it, I should know better :) ....

    at any rate here is another one on the radar, faded black with white flecks and streaks. cotton, so a summer/spring jacket mostly.

    It's possible other people won't have the same problem, but the OL constellation blazer fit me kinda weird. There was gaping at the neck and chest but pulling at the buttons. I think others have mentioned the sleeves fitting hella slim, but I didn't have a problem with that (insert self-effacing comment about skinny arms).

    I have a three-button OL blazer that fits just fine, though.

    I've never found an OL blazer that fit me right after going through maybe 10 of them, wish Barney's still stocked so I could just go in a try each seasons fit

    yea thats what keeps me from buying the constellation blazer i'm always afraid especially at night it's going to look like your wearing a jacket with a lot of dandruff on it.

    they should have made it look like a bigger stars in the sky

    Just make sure your head's shaved when you wear it. Solved

    The one I posted is Dries...I looked at the OL one on yoox and it seems to be similar but more wrinkled and less structured. The Dries is still too much money at the moment. fwiw I tried the Dries on at Jack Straw and it didn't look like dandruff, maybe the same holds true for the OL once you see it in real life.

    ^ I remember seeing one at bloomingdales actually 40% off and then another 20% off at the register. Might check that out if you're around one. It was nice, but pretty cropped and slim.
