finely tailored, excellent fit
Having read a million reviews from Smythe blazer purchasers, I understood the brand to fit on the small side so I ordered two sizes up and the fit was perfect. The design details on this blazer amp it up a bit. The cut out in the rear panel frames the booty in a kind of an upscale way. It just makes you stand up straighter. It's discreet and cool and though I waited a long time to purchase, I'm glad I did. It far outshines the other blazers in my wardrobe. I do have one issue and that's with the packaging which resulted in the item arriving with some shabby looking wrinkles. Sorted that out and all is well. Highly recommend.

fun and elegant
These loafers fit beautifully and are so comfortable. The shearling detail is subtle but eye-catching, a little unusual. People like to tease me about it right before they buy a pair of their own. Tons of compliments and double takes! They are fun to wear and add some whimsy to a great all black urban look. I am a US 7.5 and an IT 38 with a slightly narrow foot and these fit just as expected.

All that I hoped for and less
The construction and fabric are just fine. The lining is cotton and a bit shabby, if you are the kind of shopper who cares about such things, but the real problem for me was of course the fit. I'm an 8 or a 10. I couldn't get this dress on my body. It is nice. And worth every penny of its on-sale price, but watch out for the fit.

Music festival
Now all I need is a music festival. I love these sandals. I was concerned that the macrame might be a bit uncomfortable, but whatever the material is, it's form fitting, flexible and carries that sublime 70s vibe so intrinsic to my happiness. The heel strap holds the shoe perfectly in place. The leather sole is soft and nice against my feet and the size is perfect. I'm a true 7.5 or a 38 in Italian sizing. Perfect neutral fun sandal.

good, then bad
These were pretty sublime right out of the bag, chic and light and really a perfect perfect grey. After three months, the fabric separated in improbably places. Just too poorly made and very unusual for JBrand. I miss them, but I won't replace them.

They are black, not grey
I did a search for grey denim and these appeared. From the images, it's hard to tell, but I can tell you, they are black. Very slightly lighter at the knees and caboose, but black. Just black. And very very long. And a bit large. They went back. Acne jeans are wonderful and the denim here is no exception. If they had fit and been grey, they would have been great.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

edgy and perfect
I love these jeans. They fit quite similarly to Rag&Bone and to JBrand, but the feel of them is superb. The denim is a bit weightier and somehow soft. The distressed pattern is edgy, but still fine for work. They make you feel cool and long. Oh, the Italians. They understand! I was surprised by how terrific these are -- they are my first pair of R13s and as a curvy girl, I am always a bit nervous about venturing into a new brand. Highly recommend these.

disappointing
These jeans were good on paper but a problem IRL. They are quite low rise and much much smaller than expected. Upon reading reviews on other sites of COH jeans, I decided to size up from my regular size by a factor of one, but I would have needed at least two sizes larger in these. The color and fabric are fine, but the sizing is skewed and the rise itself made these impossible for me. It wasn't just that I couldn't bend without revealing half my back side, I couldn't even stand still. I wish they had fit. I loved the color and the weight of the denim but the fit and the design were too much of a problem. I sent them back.

Perfect Plaid
The shirt is really fun to wear. The flannel is thicker than I thought it would be and this is a great plus in Canada! I found the shirt to be a bit tight across the shoulders and very loose around the body. I didn't see that in the images, so that is good to know and it suits me fine. I love the frayed hem and the patchy pattern. I tried to buy this shirt last year and it was sold out everywhere so I'm delighted to have it. It's better IRL than I imagined!

Worth the wait
I have been shopping around a long time for leather pants and these were worth the wait and the research. It really paid off. These have some stretch in the legs and caboose, but not in the waistband -- you should purchase your true size there because they do not give out. The rest of the trouser accommodates the body beautifully, comfortably without sagging. The cotton backing makes these utterly wearable and breathable. They have proven worth the investment. They are so flattering to my curvy proportions and so wearable that, like another reviewer, I look for excuses to wear them. Couldn't be happier.
