great sweater for casual wear
I bought this sweater because I wanted something with a pattern, and I also liked the Porter Grey sensibility. The leather trim on the collar with the one button in the back is a special detail that sets it apart. Fits well, but is definitely high cropped, not for low-rise jeans unless you've got a shirt that hangs out...which works too.

Classic and edgy
This is a gorgeous unexpected vest -- the check plaid reminds me of Yves St. Laurent's suiting this fall and the faux fur collar sets it apart. The wool is heavy -- the whole piece is high quality. It keeps you surprisingly warm too. The collar is detachable if it's not so cold outside. I normally wear a 4, but I returned it for a 2. I've worn this with blue jeans and also with the Prouenza Schouler's ikat trouser and Thakoon's stripe pants available at ShopBop. The print mixing is perfect.

smaller than usual
I loved these when I saw them on the runway and they are slamming beautiful on your foot. The heel is high, but stable since it's not a stiletto. But beware they are tight in the toes, and I am normally an 8 but had to return from another online store and get them at shop bop a half size up as the other store didn't have the 8.5

innovative take on crew neck sweater
This is my first purchase of Thakoon. I've never much cared for his pieces, found them to be less than flattering. This sweater has unusual color combination but it works. Also the sweater is soft, soft, soft, and the way the knitting works it's figure flattering. Looks amazing with the pants.

photo doesn't do justice
I hesitated to buy this outfit with the yellow and beige sweater as seen on the runway. But the pants have a fabric that is beautiful, the picture doesn't convey how it feels and looks adequately. Also the colors clash in a way that makes each piece more interesting. I ordered a 4 my regular size and they fit perfectly.

great layering piece
I wear this under some sheer gauze tunics in pearly grey I bought this season, and it looks perfect. I got a small and it's a little loose (I'm a 4 in dresses) but I prefer that way rather than skin tight.

comfortable
I ordered these in a 36, which is a 4, my usual size. They're definitely baggy, but I liked them that way and didn't feel the need to return them. I'm 5'6" and they were the perfect length. The material is softer than denim, with a beautiful finish. I find myself wearing them more than I thought I would as an alternative to some of my white skinny jeans.

unusual yet tailored
I bought this with the blue Phillip Lim pants as pictured and they really look fantastic together. I also wear them with Alexander Wang blush silk pants. The back with its criss-cross silk panels transforms this sweater into something out of the ordinary, but you don't look odd in it...just slightly fashion forward. The way the front of the sweater lies is particularly flattering, it accentuates your waist in a subtle way.

gorgeous
I ordered an 8.5 in this and I'm glad I did. It fit perfectly, but I'm usually an 8 in most shoes, such as Manolo Blahnik, Prada etc. (Though not in Laboutin where I'm an 8.5.) The shoes are made with Proenza Schouler's usual attention to detail--the inside of the shoe is lined with silver leather which is stunning. And despite the high heel I don't find them difficult to walk in. They look sexy and yet not even remotely sleazy.

unusual and elegant
I love the cut out at the waist in the back of this sweater. The knit is extremely lightweight, so the entire sweater is a perfect summer item that won't be like anything else in your closet. Sexy yet classy.
