    Thanks for the links guys! I am a true 44.5 how should I size red wings?

    Would really appreciate hearing back from you Dante if you manage to try on the Guidis. Let me know.

    Did they make any silk pants with that pattern this season? I like the cropped ones they have on Ln-cc although the price is :fu:. Might pick them up on sale actually. I do have the silk hakamas from look 17 that was paired with the jacket I picked up so that might have to do, hehe.

    So we're a little more than a month away. Anyone decided about going ? I'm there for sure but I don't have any tickets yet :eek:
    If you come along I'll have some pistachios and saffron-infused sweets to munch on as we watch the flowing volumes !

    Still sorting myself out on this end. Due to crappy project management by a client I am working with, my work schedules have gone to hell. Will let you know by next week. By then I should know for sure.

    Yeah those ones. According to the Japanese SS12 release schedule those pants did not enter production :(.

    If the runway sample ever comes up for sale on eBay that would probably be the only way to nab one.

    The print on those pants looks crazy. Are some of the figures paler than others?

    Yup. It's all small circles and some are more complete than others.

    The close-ups on vogue are pretty nice -

    Looks like the placket is on the correct side for men's. Looks good too. :nodding:

    Now the wait for them to get here :happy:.

    Also, was it one of you guys that picked up the suspender jacket on eBay? Saw that it was gone when I went to check it out one more time.
