i guess they reconsidered their decisions of that mid-season collection.

they told me they would have some denim in terms of jeans this season again but it looks like they don't Laughing out loud

i have no problem with that. at the moment i have no plans on buying any more OL this season.

It looks great, but i'm not sure about that inner jacket.
It seem to be the actual warm part of the jacket, isn't so?

Nanamica jackets are obviously very technical in construction (Gore-tex, sealed seams etc.) whereas the OL isn’t, despite their description of it saying it is. Not in the modern sense anyway. The outer is only showerproof really and the inner isn’t as insulating as something down-filled. That said, it feels heavy on and would be well warm enough. Personally I wouldn’t want it any warmer. The outer is substantial but has a good feel. It’s not too stiff and will soften up. If it looks stiff it might be the shape - it’s quite a straight, wide coat and isn’t at all fitted, so the fabric hangs in quite a rigid-looking way.

I’m also a bit unsure of what to make of the Welcome collection. They (OL and Tres Bien) are obviously into pushing ideas about taste a little bit after a few years of fashion being pretty ‘tasteful’ and traditional. That Bodoni font and the prints seem deliberately ironic. Maybe they’re bored of subtlety. It’s only a departure from OL in stylistic terms, the construction and styles aren’t that different at all. I’d like to know their take on it in fashion terms, rather than them just put it up in their shop, thereby assuring everyone it’s cool. I liked the camo coat but not quite enough to buy it. Nice fabric but not into the undertaker cut.

that shirt has a great fabric but the cut of the maison shirt is just…i hate it!

it would be so much better as 1950s, 1940s or generation shirt but no. great shirt ruined by the cut itself. the wool sweatshirt is boring, the other grey version looks much more appealing!

OL shoes were made by sanders. so size down one from your trainer size, assuming they havent changed factories.

My correspondence with Tres Bien and OL themselves regarding black boots:

Me: Our Legacy black derby boots. What's the width of these like?
TBS: I would say that they're quite wide, what other shoe brands do you have for comparison?
Me: I have UK10 Tricker’s boots which are very slightly too big for me.
TBS: Ok, I would say that they have a pretty similar fit as Tricker's.
Me: In which case I think I’d need 9.5, which you don’t have. Nevermind, thanks anyway. By the way, they’re made by Sander’s right?
TBS: A UK9 would be the same as EU44 and the UK10 is EU45. Yes, they’re by Sander’s. Both McNairy and Our Legacy get their shoes made there.
Me: Cool, thanks.

Me: I’m interested in the black derby boots but I don’t know what size to go for. I’m a UK 9.5 in most British footwear, but sometimes a 10. Which of your Euro sizes is equivalent to UK 9.5? What is the width like? Generous like Tricker’s?
OL: Yes, it's quite generous. They're made in the UK so go for a 44, UK 10.

Thinking about those patent leather slippers, would the maintenance be a hassle though?
