Clothing halp halp

Post by Nachtsider on Mon 25 Jul 2011 - 5:54

So, I have my eye on two items of clothing - a coat...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300578045497

... and a pair of boots.

http://vongutenbergcouture.com/Predator-Leather-Knee-Boot.html

I'm seventeen inches from shoulder tip to shoulder tip, and thirty-five inches around my chest. My shoe size is a US size nine. I'd be inestimably grateful if you guys could help me answer this question: what size coat and boots should I buy?

Shoes I'm afraid I can't really comment on: sizing differs so much from manufacturer to manufacturer. Example: my Aquila dress shoes are a nine, but my steel cap work boots are tens, they're both Aussie brands an in Armani I'm about a 9.5.

As to the coat: general rule of thumb is to get the shoulders right as they're the most difficult (read costly) to alter. Bringing the bust and waist in are resonably simple. Don't know how you'd go with that particular coat though, there doesn't seem to be that many places you could neatly hide some adjustment. My instinct would be to fit the shoulders though.

I'm not sure about your size measurements, just get around the size you wear now I suppose. It's a pain buying clothes online since you can't try them on. -_-

All I know is I want that coat for myself!! X3 <3

The store is in HK so the sizing might be a bit off too. Based on your measurements the M.L is what you want to get because of your shoulders.

The shoes I can't say. I have size 10 Vans that fit perfectly and size 8.5 military dress shoes that fit too.

Go ahead and buy yourself one of those coats, Tri - I ain't stopping ya! Very Happy

Update: I've bought the boots in a size nine and a half; will be buying an M.L. coat later today. Thanks for the feedback, guys.

If I can get one that fits, yes. Wink

Found another awesome coat on the Bay. No doubts about sizing this time. Soon, I shall be the best-dressed kid on my block.

Yes you do. You should be saving that money for me. You should be planning romantic outings for us now that we will both be in the city again Razz

And Nacht, I always figured you were the best dressed on your block... Well except for Gaya. Though... She would look stunning in anything... *sigh* Some of us are just born ugly and don't know how to dress lol

I can honestly say I can flash anything from a three piece suit to a garbage bag(which I used to make a Bob-omb costume one Halloween) sweat ). Wearing an outfit with confidence will make any outfit look chic.

...this. Conversely, it doesn't matter how much you dress up, if you're not confident in what you're wearing, it'll NEVER look good.

No I'm sorry Boom Boom. You will never look good in a trash bag. Nope. Not at all. I wouldn't be seen with you in a trash bag. Razz But the chances of us ever being seen in public are slim to none so I don't have to worry about my reputation. Very Happy

Bad girl. What did I tell you about self-depreciation?

I'll let the spanking pass, though, in light of your praising me and Gaya. Razz

I suddenly really, really want to see a photo of you in that Bomb-omb costume.

THIS JUST IN.

I'm not so sure about the sizing for the second coat now. The one I had my eye on fits my chest pretty well, but it's a little over an inch wider on the shoulders. Again, I'm thirty-five around the chest, seventeen from shoulder tip to shoulder tip.

Help. e.e

Stop that, Boom-Boom. You're making me blush. Razz

Second jacket arrived today. The first made me feel elegant; this one makes me feel like I'm the most dangerous guy in my neighborhood. It's got a very aggressive look to it. If the other jacket was the female of the species, this one is definitely the male. I shall introduce them to one another and declare them legally wed.

Can't wait for the boots.

So. My boots are FINALLY being shipped out, a little over two months after I made the order. I was worried I'd been ripped off. Will post pics once they arrive.

Thanks for the compliments, you guys. Very Happy
