By the way p^4, that's a real shame that you seem to have had trouble with your Yohji buying. Pretty strange though. Anyway, older collections do tend to run much bigger generally speaking and you should size more by height than by waist size (belts are your friend), so if you are going with a size 2 because of your waist size as opposed to your height, I would change that. I think I remember you saying you were about Parker's height? Maybe see what he has been picking up size wise (I think he went with a 3 in that Napoleon jacket for instance). Should be okay though as you like in NYC right? So Atelier and IF are in your area, should make trying stuff on a lot easier. And once you get a good idea which size usually works for you, you can use that a SA general guide and then ask on here whenever you want to try out auctions for pieces.
