    Default Sizing help



    I guess this can become a post for sizing references- as I assume most of us like brands we can't always try on.



    I myself need some help with ann dem. sizing as I've never bought a piece from her. What would a US38 / IT48 generally fit into for her jackets/shirts?

    That's a good idea. If you are looking at the last few season's,
    Ann's sizing can be unpredictable. Usually you will be Okay with
    size Small for a 38, but she does have some very slim cut jackets that
    are more of a 36 in Small. It might be of help if you can post a
    picture of the actual piece.

    Faust you bring up a good point about Ann Dem's different sizing.
    Some size small shirts from certain seasons fit me well
    (38-40US). I would be scared to buy any of her things without
    trying it on first.

    Yep,
    that's true. She used to be incredibly consistent, now more
    things are slimmer, which is fine, I guess, but does not work on me too
    well. I like fitted, but not skinny, personally. I check
    out her stuff very closely every season, both men's and women's and the
    men's cuts changed slightly since she went with the standalone mens
    show.

    Yea,
    I tried it on. Very fitted. M is good if you are 38 and
    will want to wear a sweater under it. Much more expensive than this,
    but different fabric, I believe

    I have a question about Carol Christian Poell sizing for shirts. I am usually around a 46 (a small) and I also like stuff to be fitted, even skinny, but not too tight.

    i would go for a 46. he's pretty spot on with sizing in my experience with his blazers, shirts, and pants.

    Everything I've tried from him (aside from shoes) was true to size except a very dark jeans jacket where I looked fine in a 48. The cut made me look buff for some reason, but in a good way. WhatMs really important is that you realize that his leather jackets will stretch and mold to your body after a while. You may feel like you need to size up at first but that's a mistake you shouldn't make.

    Default women's sizing

    I could use very general sizing help myself - I tend to find things that work for me by pure luck and I'd really rather start doing some research before looking. I'm small but solid at 5'1", usually a size 2 or S, 25-27 in jeans depending on whether I want to be able to sit down. It seems as though Rick Owens jackets/sweaters are always going to be too voluminous for me, even though I really love how they look. On the other end of the spectrum, Marc Jacobs fits well but makes me look like an 8 year old. Are there women's designers who you would say are safer for a smaller frame?

    Aha, here's the sizing thread, sorry I couldn't find it earlier. Feel free to delete my other post Faust, it wouldn't let me. Here's my question, some of it was kinda answered earlier in this thread, but if anyone can add to it that would be great:

    I remember there being some questions here and there about her sizing, but searching through the forums I can't seem to find them, so thought I'd start a new thread.

    Can anyone tell me how her shoes run? I've heard the aloharag sale is coming soon, so I wanted to be prepared to snap up those silver sneaks on sale. I wear a 10 in most brands (prada, miu miu, helmut lang) which must run bigger than the typical american sneaker because for the longest time I thought I was an 11. My Dior sneakers are 42.5 and they are almost too snug, if that helps for comparison purposes.

    In general do her clothes run big or are they all over the place? I'm wondering if I would want a 38 or 36 in her jackets. 36 in Dior is perfect, but I have a Jil blazer that is 38 and slim, most cheaper brands I end up with 36 though (h&m, benneton etc.). Thanks for any help, I wish I could try these on, but for now aloharag is my best bet.

    Shoes run one size big. Her clothes recently got slimmer, but not always. They used to run regularly, but it seems that she maybe bowing to the market a little (or maybe she just changed her view, who knows). I'd say get your normal size.

    Depends on how you want it to fit. If you plan to layer stuff underneath, then M.

    Small would be too tight unless you're going for the ultra-slim look (only a tee underneath too). I second Faust comment, get a medium.

    Silver shoes are one size too big if I remember correctly. I tried them on so I'm pretty sure. As for the rest I'd say yeah Faust is right and knows his AnnD better than me. If it helps I'm a 36 in pretty much everything and a XS in AnnD aside from a few exceptions.
