Allsaints appreciation thread - Page 6
awesome. im about to get some tshirts from their site ^^ by the way, does anyone have a scoop tshirt from them? most of the designs i like are a scoop cut and im wondering how they actually look. if they fall too much on the chest , maybe a crew cut would look better...?
From what I've seen on eBay and other pictures, the scoop collar is comically large, though phukette can probably answer this better. I love the cut collar they have, I'm broad shouldered and it fits me perfectly: large enough to look cool, not large enough to make me look like a douchebag.
Hey Audit, there's a bloomsbury jacket on auction right now on Ebay, size Large:
Doesn't ship outside UK though.
Speaking of which, if someone would be a kind soul to just send a package my way, I really want the warwick jacket and trousers, but the trousers are sold out on my size in the US site, and the UK site has them but doesn't ship to Brazil.
So I'd just buy and send them to someone with a UK address and they'd just have to mail it to me (I'll pay for the shipping obviously). I know it's a long shot, but if someone wants to help out, please let me know.
thanks lavoisier! ill message him to see if he would ship it to Greece. but id have to ask phukette first about some measurements of his bloomsbury like sleeve length and arm circumference (since that would be the problem in getting a medium). by the way, today i got my first allsaints items and im super happy about them. i think they fit alright and they are both medium (maybe the fit of bloomsbury is like the leather jacket so a large might be too large in the end)
brown post commander leather jacket
But one thing, you might get your tailor to take in those sleeves on the highbury jacket. You have the same problem as me and aahz with allsaints sleeves. If that is the case then get a medium in the Bloomsbury jacket.
thanks buddy! sure. no problem. send them whenever you can.
about the sleeves..you mean that sleeves are longer than they should be? maaaaybe i feel that way a little bit with the ignition blazer but not with the post commander jacket. but from what ive been told, a blazer should be a little longer because you straighten your arm it goes back (my right arm holding the cam for instance). im a total rookie with blazers so...every advice is welcome!
The leather fits great.
You might've gotten the ingnition blazer a size too large there, maybe.
Man, did I have fun shopping today. Held out on the Warwick blazer because even though I knew there were probably only 1-2 items remaining in size 40, I could just feel there was a price reduction coming. And, as it turns out it came this morning and I jumped on it as soon as I woke up: saved myself $170.
Also picked up the only 2 tees I found worth buying this season (online at least), Statue cut collar and Barrier cut collar, both at full price because they're part of the "Not for sale" campaign.
Then, I later decided to risk it and got the warwick trousers in size 36 from the US website, as they sold out on size 32 on the uk one. They're seem very slim fitting, so hopefully it'll be a good fit still. If not, I'll take 'em to the tailor.
After that I decided to pick up the charge chino in willow green, on the UK website. On the "way" there, also saw a cecil cardigan for only 35 euros (quarter of the price almost), so picked that up as well. These are still gonna cost a lot, cause I sent them to a proxy called forward2me, which is pretty expensive, but it'll be worth it.
All in all, very satisfied =]
im talking about this one here. :P
