    David you bought this one?
    I got the same from Japan but it's a sample (fabric code 067) so I' don't know what's the fabric but Hervia states 55% cotton 45% cupro.

    i haven't checked hervia. what's the feeling? formal or more relaxed everyday white shirt. it look really nice in the show tucked in and the folding it's pretty awesome and i can actually afford it at price point of £85.

    Yes cupper, HB-B55-067 size 2, not a runway piece and someone was braindead at Hervia, cos it's 100% sure 100% cotton. I got a cheeky 80% off retail by asking in the shop [​IMG]

    I wouldn't call a very relaxed fit ( apparently Look 1 is massive even in sz 1 ) but not formal I would say with a hood on a collarless shirt. Quite cool and irresistible at the price I paid ( circa £120 ). The one Forward sold ( you got it now? ) is Look 41 I think right but it won't be a million miles away in terms of fabric.

    yes, i bought it already. my classmate has look 1 and look 2 shirts, if it's something closer to that i would be very happy. regarding the size... even size 5 will be okey, i will make it work somehow..

    Wow, once the forward link was posted their stuff immediately sold out. Too bad for me...

    I...I need more coffee. I read your post, clicked on the link, made a purchase, and never once realised I was on Forward and not The Corner.

    Haha doesn't matter just use tulip and have fun ! Revolve (the Forward parent site) probably sells enough to compensate, there's a third one in the group that I forget now...

    Hopefully you guyare right and the jacket is wool gabardine one and not cotton, I don't want more cotton for now!

    sslightly OT but for a short amount of time this month, yoox had some Helmut Lang ss04-5 stuff. I have no idea where this stuff comes from, I wonder if some store unloaded an archive or something.

    Anyone know how to size on coming soon, some pretty interesting blazers on yoox

    I ordered a 40 (im 5 9 and 172 lbs on the muscular side). I figured that would be the best to get the right oversized look?

    My wife has a couple of things (couple of tees, shirts, a jacket), they're all tts, no real surprises or oddity in the way it's cut.
