    Good evening, wondering which size to buy a BBS ninja zip hoodie.
    XL is slightly oversized for me and a tad too long, do they shrink at all when washed?
    Thanks!

    Would help if we would know your measurements and bodybuild.

    I am 183cm and weigh 85kg (not all of those being pure muscle).
    I tried an XL one, it is just that tad too long. Unless it shrinks a little!

    depends on what fabric and season it is you would get rather mixed results, if its a newer zipper then it will have a more accurate reading on sizing

    I’m ordering a pair of Bamba2s. I tried on another Salomon collab shoe last season, and UK10.5 fit my US11.5 feet perfectly. I’m now told by BBSNY though that this new iteration of them fit a bit tighter, and more like a US11. Anyone able to corroborate this - do the Bamba2 or Salomon in general this season fit more tightly?

    Maybe they were referring to the Salomon Bamba 3? I'll find out since I just ordered the 3. I got the Bamba 2 when it was first released and I found that to be too snug even when I got my actual US size.

    Ah - I had tried on the Speedcross which fit true to size. If it's just the Bamba 2 that fits significantly tighter than that, I am worried...

    Edit: Ah, turns out BBSNY only has the lighter blue/grey version rather than jet black this season. Not sure if other retailers got jet black this time or not. :/

    I got the Bamba 3 in and went a half size up. It fits comfortable much more than the Bamba 2 when I went TTS. It feels as if I'm wearing an actual 9.5US mens size. From my limited experience, my assumption is going half size up is better. I know you're going for the Bamba 2 and I doubt fit will change season to season given it's still the same sneakers. I also doubt the object dyeing will shrink the synthetic and rubber material used.

    My issue here is that online retailers don't display Salomon's size chart and just use their default size chart instead. So if you're not familiar with Salomon sizing and fit, you might end up getting a bad fitting pair just because of that.

    have a question about a fabric Rick used for FW17, the mix of "japanese baby alpaca", wool and nylon, fabric code CB. is it supposed to have tons of slubs all over, like peeling or something? honestly, that mix is amazing and i kind of like the look, but at the same time it just doesn't feel right.

    i handled this fabric in a store a few months ago briefly and this crazy texture did not stood out to me, i remember it to be totally smooth, although the item i got now looks like it has been purposefully poked all over with a needle to let these loose knots give the fabric a bit of a boucle look. confused tbh.

    I have cropped trousers in this CB fabric. My experience is that the fabric is amazing (perfect winter fabric) and pretty consistent without any peeling effect... yet. I have only worn them once and stored since so not much experience though.

    oh shit, that's what i thought. YOOX is seriously testing my patience... again.

    here's an example, pretty hard to capture because of the crepe texture though:

    delicious_not- looks from photo: clothes moth or carpet beetle damage. The larvae can do their damage and not leave much other evidence. That's why I've approached wool with some trepidation these days.

    Going back to the 11 by BBS Bamba 2, has there been any fakes produced? I'm looking to buy an older season pair from the secondhand market and don't want to end up with a fake pair.

    Quite some time ago there was a discussion about the prints Paul Harnden uses, someone mention and linked to a book with many fantastic prints quite similar to what Harnden uses. Does someone knows the name of the book? If I'm not mistaken it was German, but I might be wrong.

    If you're curious about Haeckel, there is also a fascinating (and beautiful) documentary about him called "Proteus." https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0391407/

    no, i don't think so - the damages don't have that "eaten" look, they're just loose yarns. here's a better shot:



    that's the worst area, otherwise it's just here and there throughout the whole jacket. maybe that's how this fabric ends up looking after a while anyway, that baby alpaca mix is very delicate.

    also, after a few e-mail exchanges with Yoox the total price for that Stravinsky is about 85% off retail, so i guess i'll find a way to appreciate that worn look lol.
