  1. Hello, I need some urgent help on Alden sizing. Have done a search but can’t find the exact info I need so my apologies if this has been dealt with before. I am about to drop $800 on a pair of Alden Cordovan AF79’s on the Barrie last in a size 6D. However, because I live in the UK I cannot try them on! I have a pair of Alden Cordovan Cap Toe boots on the Modified last in a 6D and they fit me perfectly. Does anyone know if a 6D in the Barrie will also fit well? I keep hearing conflicting accounts – that the Barrie is smaller and tighter than the Modified. As there is a no returns policy on the AF79 I’d be ever so grateful for any help and advice. Thank you ever so T

  5. Hey Have a pair of PRPS Rambler jeans am selling on ebay. Getting rid of a few pairs I just never wear. Anyway, if anyone's interested - please do take a peek here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190610614583?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649#ht_500wt_1208
  6. Dior Homme Denim

    Hello Hope am ok to post this but have just listed a pair of Dior Homme Silver Selvedge jeans on ebay. They are from a few seasons ago when Hedi Slimane was still creative director and are amazing! Made in Japan. Silver Selvedge dry denim. Never worn. Never washed. Never altered. And impossible to get hold of I think now. Oh and they're a size 28. Take a peek as they need to go! http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190609841455#ht_500wt_1208 Best T
  7. Martin Margiela - jacket sleeves WTF?!

    Err...I love it not sure I want to sell it yet - haven't even worn it. Just those sleeves... Size 46 - would that fit if I do sell it?
  8. Hey all Have done a search but can't find anything on this and thought this would certainly be the place to ask. Bought a gorgeous Martin Margiela jacket this week - two button, grey. Fits perfectly apart from the sleeve length - which is very long and comes almost to my thumb knuckle on both sleeves. Now the Martin Margiela boutique said that this is how Margiela jackets are meant to be but now I'm home I'm not so sure it looks right. But i don't want to get the jacket altered at the shoulder to shorten the sleeve as have had this done before and it's ruined the fit on the shoulder. The button details mean that taking up from the cuff is a no no. So my question is (know it's hard without pics) has anyone else been told that Margiela jackets should be worn with the sleeves slightly longer (i.e. to the knuckle) and will the cuffs wear and fray quicker as they are worn so low? Anyone have any thoughts on wearing jackets of this type (i.e smart/two button) with a longer than normal sleeve? Looks a bit like this guy's sleeve length (but only the sleeve length the jacket style is different): http://thesartorialist.blogspot.com/2006/10/at-martin-margiela_03.html Thoughts? Wear? Fit? And if consensus is it looks a bit shit - anyone know of a brilliant tailor in London you can hook me up with?! Thanks all T
  9. APC

    Buy them so they fit. Not so you can't do the buttons up. Just so they are snug. Size down one maybe two at the most.
  10. APC

    Jesus christ - what happened to the ass?!?! Did you buy these super tight?!
  11. APC

    I think you should go back up a size - I don't understand how everyone here says that APC's stretch like a bastard because I've been wearing mine every day for 6 weeks and they haven't stretched much at all. And I mean at all. And when you wash 'em they're gonna go right back to your not being able to button them up again. Yes - buy 'em tight because they're going to give a little but so tight you can't do them up?! My experience has been that's a no no. Just my 2 cents and I know differing advice from almost everyone else on this thread but there we are. You gotta be comfortable in the jeans for gawd's sake!
  12. APC

    I would be wary of sizing down too far - there's quite a few male cameltoe pictures on this thread. I am a 28 in Dior Homme jeans and a 27 in APC NS. Also, yes of course they'll stretch with wear just like any jeans but the minute you wash them they'll shrink back to pretty much the tag size (or how they fit when you bought them) so I would size down one for a good fit, 2 for a pretty damn tight fit and 3 for a nice cameltoe fit... (I couldn't even do the top button up on sizing down two btw)
  13. Hey there Am selling my very much loved Rolex Explorer II - it's a couple of years old but in beautiful condition. I have all the papers and the box and receipt. Am sure everyone says this but it's totally legit and I'd rather sell to a buyer in London who can collect the watch. Am happy to post photos too but wanted to post this and see if there was any interest at all before I go to a 2nd hand watch dealer in town. Am based in London and can meet centrally. Am not selling this on ebay as tired of timewasters so do let me know if you're genuinely interested. Thinking that £2,000 is a fair price as it's £3,250 new. Get in touch if you'd like to know more T
  14. Dior Homme Denim

    Yes they will. In my experience Dior raws shrink more than you'd think. This might be ok in the waist and thighs for some as with wear they'll stretch but that's not the case with the length! I had my raws hemmed to at least an inch longer than I wear my other washed pairs of Dior Homme and after washing the raws in a 40 degree wash they've actually come out shorter so have shrunk length wise by over an inch... Loving the redux thread but isn't it being 'policed' a little strictly? I've already had a post deleted for some reason and the joy of this forum is the ease with which everyone can voice things. Wouldn't want to lose that but also understand the need to try and control the 'should I buy this size' posts...
  15. Hi I honestly think these are too big - especially in the crotch area. And they're too long as well. I have never understood the fashion for wearing jeans that stack up almost to the knee. Just looks like they're too long if you ask me. You don't want ankle-biters that's for sure but too much stacking just looks like you've bought a pair of jeans that don't fit. But then what do I know - some people in London think it's cool to wear jeans that come up to the middle of their arse crack and to me any kind of crack you don't smoke shouldn't really be on view thanks very much.
