    Haven't looked at this thread for a while.
    I absolutely love the boots, and like the fact that they've changed the original zipper pulls to these much nicer ones.......

    I adore this Color

    Out of curiosity, have you had the opportunity to see if it's heat retaining capabilities are on par with wool?

    Default quality

    I'm a bit surprised to be posting about this, but I've been having a quality issue with my cotton / linen twist pants. The right, medial seam of the right knee has been splitting repeatedly. Taken them to a tailor twice and once repaired they're seemingly unblemished. Yet it continues to happen. It's not fit, because they fit amazingly - and not tight in the slightest. I suppose it's bit tight when the knee is fully bent but it's not bilateral.
    I think it may actually have to do with the fabric and how it's woven. The weave is slightly bigger than other blends I've seen and it's almost like it's pulling apart. As in, the seam is still intact. Curious if any else has experienced this. Besides that they're breaking in nicely. Still can't believe they were as affordable as they were.

    No problem with mine, but not sure if I have the same ones. I live in mine, and not a squeak out of them. Sounds like they fit me the same way, a bit tight behind the knee when sitting down, perfect otherwise. Maybe talk to the store where you bought them, see if they can sort it out.

    ^I wish I lived in mine. That was the plan til this.
    Took them back to the tailor and we found the flaw when the garment was turned inside out. Normally the edges of the two pieces of fabric that make up the leg line up. Then a parallel seam is stitched. In the problem area the edges do not line up, thus the stitch is sewn through a weaker portion of the fabric (closer to the edge). Had it been a thick denim it may have held, but since it's woven, it pulls and gives.

    Unfortunately I picked these up of a person, not a store. But we're going to reinforce then with an additional piece of fabric underneath. Hopefully that will relieve stress in that area, or place it on something more substantial. If anyone has any tips, lemme know.

    Saw one of his hoodies from last collection and was blown away from the materials he used. Can't seem to find the post at the moment though. Does anybody know where I can purchase his stuff?

    I tried one on empty and thought it looked kind of cool. of course, if you fill it up it'll look awkward. not wtf-worthy imo.

    agreed - looks very good in real life, actually. and if you need to put a book somewhere and don't want to carry a bag, which I often do, it's not a bad idea. i use the huge inside pockets on my harnden jacket for that, and even the backpocket on my rick winter jacket. i actually don't like carrying bags, even though i often do.

    If people are looking for a 'go to' pair of pants I'd definitely recommend Devoa, I have a pair of the carrot leg twist pants and they are so easy to wear. The material is supple but still thick and the texture is lovely. The twist and stack on the leg looks really natural too I find and with a slight bootcut they proportion well with chunkier-toed boots such as my Layer-0s.

    Bit of an out of the blue post, but I thought I'd share my experience with other sz'ers, it has taken me a while to find a pair of pants that fits me well and I've just been so impressed with these.

    ^ I totally agree. I just bought a black pair of the Devoa f/w 2011 heavy cotton pants. The curved seam and raw edges look great, and the thicker material make them perfect for colder weather.

    I have been eyeing this label for quite some time now and although I don't own anything of it yet, I am very fond of the general aesthetic and approach to fashion (e.g. continuously improving their own signature pieces rather than trying to invent something inherently new from season to season).

    What I do like especially is the tailored stuff - cut very sharp with the signature pagoda shoulders and anatomic cut arms. However, as I haven't tried anything on yet, I wondered that the way Devoa cuts may not fit one's body type?
    For example, there is this wool jacket from current FW11.
    It fits awkward on:
    Hlorenzo model and on the guy at Layers London. Not only that the shoulders look awkward (especially at the last-mentioned guy), there are also these creases on the back of the shoulder/arm. And I could also imagine that the anatomic (j-shaped?) arms don't look good if your arms are longer / shorter / of different proportions than what the designer expects them to be?
    On the other side, the blazer looks awesome on the lookbook model (goes without saying though) and on the guy at Zekka.

    Would appreciate thoughts on this 'issue'. Also, does the fit vary much from season to season? I have the impression, that the mentioned blazer has more of a bell shape on the back than other blazers.

    there is no issue here imo, layers and lorenzo models wear jackets that are obviously too big.

    i tried on devoa tailoring several times at their showroom in paris fw and the fit is awesome indeed, the materials are nice too. i don't really need this kind of piece in my wardrobe at the moment, but i could consider it in the future for sure.

    Agreed, the models don't always wear the right size, which I really don't understand.

    I have a few Devoa pieces (shirts and pants) and really love the clean simple lines, fit, and material. I'd always recommend trying on items if you can, especially something from the same season as you're buying. I'm personally looking forward to their SS12 collection.

    ^ It is weird right, maybe they rush it. Zekka's shots are always good though.

    ^^^ I reckon Devoa is one of the most on point labels when it comes to sizing. Of course trying on the items is best, but Devoa is one of the labels I'd confidently kop online.
