I love the Nahara trench in Doe....

I heard that the sizing is quite big, especially that of the tops.

^It's funny because I'd say the complete opposite! I'm not sure if the sizing in the US is different but as for the tops I've purchased: I can barely breathe in them because All Saints doesn't seem to be aware of women having boobs (and mine aren't that big) The sleeves are supertight. I heard that is because they're going for this Rick Owens look with the long and tight sleeves but RO sleeves are nowhere near as tight on me as those of All Saints tops.

I also always have problems with the length of All Saint's dresses and tops. The tunic tops that should cover one's bum are too short on me and the dresses are often too long. Maybe my body is just weird but trying on things at All Saints is always such an awkward experience for me because of all the weird fits

But I'd say in general the sizing of All Saints runs rather small compared to H&M, Zara et al.

I'm 5.9" and wear a dress size US 6, have small boobs a narrow waist and wide hips (pear-shape), and all the dresses fit me pretty much perfectly. So I guess they're kinda long for people that are of normal height and a bit tight on the chest for those who have more of an hourglass figure. I wouldn't really say that it's that much smaller than H&M and Zara really, it all depends on the shape of the garment.

agreed....

I own 2 All Saints' leather jackets, both of them a UK8, while my usual size at H&M or Zara is a EURO 34.

If you wish to wear your leather jackets as winter outwear with thick sweaters underneath, I'd even go 2 sizes up.

I have mixed experiences with the sizing: the jersey tees have come up larger, dresses smaller (note: these have been dresses with fitted bodices). I also have two skirts from a few seasons ago, from the same season, the same size, yet they fit differently.

^YES! I finally bought them last winter after wanting them for ages. They're definitely worth the money. I wore them all winter, wear them whenever it rains and when I go to festivals. They're super comfy and versatile.

^And you'll get 25% off on everything? When I bought mine in the UK they said there weren't ever any discounts on the Damisi boots because they're a classic item.


Currently obsessing over this jacket:

allsaints.com

Does anyone already have it? Or a similar one from previous seasons? Curious to see what it looks like on. Especially the sleeves, I like them to be supertight and long on my leather jackets. It's not in their lookbook

Wow, that is a cool jacket; I love how there's two ways of wearing it. Unfortunately, I haven't tried it on yet or anything.

I have the Cobra leather jacket from a few seasons back and the sleeves are quite tight and fitted.

----------------------------------------

I just purchased the Elkin poncho off the Final Reductions on the UK website. (http://www.allsaints.com/sale/women_...ack/wkk176-162) I was lusting the Elkin jumper, and now it's even back in-stock this season, but it's soooooo expensive for what it is.
