    would it be safe to say their jackets/suits generally run true to size (for reference)?



    i've been looking at this cotton blazer on yoox
    http://www.yoox.com/item/YOOX/RAF+SI...2097_7_3_1B_70



    i'm just going to wait for the fall stuff to go on sale though since it doesn't seem particularly special. heh.

    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.

    Here are my measurements, may borderline on TMI:*

    Chest: 38"
    Waist (right below navel): 31"
    "Posterior
    " at largest point: 36"



    I'm about 5' 9-10". By American standards, I'm 'small' and a size 9.5 in shoes. I'm usually a 48/38 in EU sizes, but I've found pants can be hit or miss, depending on cut. Here are the forum-relevant brands I am familiar with:



    Costume National: 48 for pretty much everything (blazers, shirts, jackets, pants) and a 8 1/2 for shoes. The dress shirts are fairly slim in the chest and tapered in the arms, so if you're a bit larger than my measurements, I would size up or you're probably going to get a bad, too-tight fit. This goes for the pants as well.
    Margiela: Usually a 46 in the relaxed fit pants, 48 in slim-cut pants.
    Helmut Lang: 31 in jeans, 48 for jackets, 8 1/2 for shoes. Medium in casual shirts.
    Alexander McQueen: 48 for dress shirts, no surprises here... I will say, though, the shirt I purchased (can be seen in the recent purchases thread) fits AMAZINGLY. Slim, high armholes with straight sleeves, nicely shaped silhouette. Strongly recommended.
    Neil Barrett
    : Medium in shirts and casual blazers.
    Orlando: A brand I came across on Yoox, bought a one-button peak lapel blazer in a size 48. This thing is cut small, no joke. Makes Dior Homme look fat in the waist... I can barely close the button. I would strongly recommend sizing up unless you want a skin-tight look.

    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.

    [quote user="kucejoe"]I have a question about Carol Christian Poell sizing for shirts. I am usually around a 46 (a small or sometimes even a medium) and I also like stuff to be fitted, even skinny, but not too tight.
    [/quote]



    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.

    I don't know what the outlook on his work is, or if anyone here would have any experience, but does anyone know how Henrik Vibskov's shirts run? Now that they're on sale at aloharag, I'm tempted to pick up two, but they're only available in medium. I wear a small-to-small-medium in most things, so if anyone would happen to know if they run on the small side or more or less true to size, I'd really appreciate it!

    From my experience they run true to size, so they maybe a little big on you. Maybe you can ask them for measurements?
