sadly not consistent
I own several pairs of Current and Elliott shorts and pants. I have found the sizing strangely consistent in that the really baggy styles (boyfriend, captain) fit me best in size 29, the rest (rolled skinny, buddy, straight), fit me best in size 30 - they give some, but I like the slightly slouchy look. I ordered these in size 30. They "bit" me hard behind the knees, particularly the right leg, and the leg opening was very narrow (hard to get over the foot, again particularly on the right side). For reference, I am 5'9", with a 28-29" waist, and 39.5" hips. Maybe they were defective (I bought the rolled skinny in 30 at the same time and they fit exactly right). Back they went (which cost me $30, so you know I really didn't like them).
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

not what I expected
I like James Perse, I own a lot of James Perse, mostly size 3; and was advised to purchase my regular size based upon my mmts; so I ordered this top in size 3. It was too large in width, very sloppy and the neckline was awkwardly wide and loose. For reference, I am 5'9", 34C, have a 28-29" waist, with strong but not big arms. This might have been a defective version of the top, perhaps it would have fit better had I sized down, I don't know. I do know that I definitely expected a better top from a brand that I am very familiar with.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

nice dress short
The fabric on this short is a little fine, so I would describe it as more of a dress short than one to trek about in. It fits nicely, (there is a lot of stretch - I am 5'9" tall, with a 29" waist, 40" hips and would normally wear an Italian 44) but with the stretch and vanity sizing, I chose the 8. They fit, and are flattering (so my nearest and dearest have told me), but I would have preferred there to be a little more of a boyfriend slouch to them. Had they not had stretch, size 10 would have been a better choice for my size, abeit with darts sewn in at the waist.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

perfect tee indeed
I love Vince tees; they fit without being snug (I am 5'9" with 35" bust, 29" waist, 40" hip and I buy a medium), they are soft, and long enough to tuck into pants/jeans, or leave out and not fear revealing anything when you squat or bend. I wash them in cold water, gentle cycle and the oldest ones I have, have lasted me 3 years so far. This particular one is true to the colour shown, a beautiful rich blue.

perfect tank
I love Vince tanks; they fit without being snug (I am 5'9" with 35" bust, 29" waist, 40" hip and I buy a medium), they are soft, and long enough to tuck into pants/jeans, or leave out and not fear revealing anything when you squat or bend, and they don't roll up like some tanks that I "stretch". They hide bra straps completely, and I wash them in cold water, gentle cycle and the oldest ones I have, have lasted me 4 years so far. This particular one is a great basic soft grey (with heathering).

very nice blouse
I wasn't familiar with this designer and am thankful that Shopbop brought him within range. The blouse is very nicely cut; not too fitted but no excess fabric. The print is charming, very European, and the fabric is very lightweight, but not sheer, perfect for spring/summer, (perhaps not the best quality of fabric, but still very nice). I bought the size 2, and I wear an italian 44, US medium, James Perse 3, very comfortably. I missed out on his other pieces so I hope that Shopbop brings in more of his line.

love Vince tees
This tee is perfect. Soft, with a nice drape (so no too fitted, but not sloppy at all), and the colour is light but a definite true blue (blueberry tee). I bought medium - I am 5'9", with 35" bust, 28" waist, and broad shoulders, and the fit is perfect; classic and feminine.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

nice tank
This tank is the usual Vince tank - soft, longish (for discretion) and covers bra straps - although the neckline is a little deeper than usual. The colour is not crisp, has a bit of a dusty look to it, which is soft and nice.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

wonderful colour
This tee is exactly as pictured - the colour is a bright, warm, coral red which looks wonderful on brunettes. The fabric is light, but not see-through, and the tee is slightly fitted with a little rumple for hiding body bumps, and is long enough to tuck into 8" rise denim on me; I am 5'9" with a regular waist.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

very nice
This sweater is very soft, and don't be fooled by the wool content; it is not the least bit itchy. The cowl neck though full, does not bunch up around your neck (if you're anything like me you don't like the choking feel of some turtlenecks), unless you zip your jacket right up - but as the cowl acts as an infitinity scarf, you don't need to zip up. The style is loose and boxy, but as it is soft, it almost drapes about you as you move therefore not appearing sloppy or adding bulk. I am not big in the bustline, and wouldn't recommend it for someone who is - it is a substantial cowlneck. The arms are very long, which I like as I am 5'9" with long arms, but perhaps others would not? Also, I have wide, bony shoulders which the sweater softens - makes them more feminine. If my shoulders were already rounder and more feminine, I think that this sweater would just swim around without flattering. In any case, this sweater suits my body type happily and I am very satisfied with my purchase.
