Since we're discussing Balenciaga, I would like so advice on the fit of the menswear... are the pants cut true to size (I've heard they're cut waay skinny)... and the tops, is a medium a EU48 or so? Any advice is appreciated.

FYI. I am not sure if this is the right place for it, but I just went by Nieman Marcus today in San Diego Fashion Valley Store. They just received a shipment of Balenciaga purses (this very morning) and put it out on Display. I was also told that they had lost their Balenciaga Waiting List so it's a first-come first serve. They have a limited selection, about 3-5 bags in every style and color. The biggest selection was in the smaller Motorcycle bag.

I found their women's fitting true to size. I normally wear 36 top and 34 bottoms, and Balenciaga fits me perfectly. I just need more $$$

Does anyone know about Nicholas Ghesquire? I hope he is gay, he is so beautiful.
I like that store plus the one in New York...they've had serious problems with the menswear sizing before (Once I had to buy a jacket size 50, though I'm size 44/46 with Dior and Raf), but it should be fixed now...

Balenciaga Tank Top (Nicky Hilton)
I just had a question about a Balenciaga racerback long tank top I saw NIcky Hilton wearing in a mag about a year ago. It was like pruple and said balenciaga across the front with a number and at the botton I think it said Parfums or Paris. If you know what I am talking about can You please tell me where I could find it? THanks

Balenciaga
With as much talk and beautiful pieces as this seasons Balenciaga collection has generated, a few members and a mood decided it may be a good idea to start a thread on it...

Ok, why don't everyone post pictures of what they have purchased here?

I got my black silk jacket.. i tried the paisley on same as GG and Caffeine in a size 36 and it was huge on me!! So big in the back, and the shoulders, the same goes for the grey one, which i originally wanted..

The only one that kinda fittet me was this black blazer, and that had to be tailored as well.. why diden't they order in any 34??

Ok, I will post pictures later, the cut is exactly the same, and i adore it.. still a bit big on the shoulders but I can't do anything about that..
