Anything bigger, the shoulders will be totally disproportionate as they increase by about 1" or 2cm with every size up.

Very pricey!
I think tops are easier to get a way with in in sizes, whereas jeans are much harder cause they seem tight fitting! I am just having an isssue that its a low rise jeans...and i have a small waist..and some junk in my trunk so i dont want to get a big size and flash the world....and i dont want to get a small size and i wont be able to breathe

baghag, i have two balmain jackets with the shoulders, im like you, a 34 or 36 in balenciaga, and in balmain, my black one is a 34 and my white is a 36, they all fit well. the 34 is tight around the arms but its a cool look...
the thing about those jackets isnt a problem of getting a smaller size, but if you size up , you will end up looking like a football player! the first balmain jacket i tried was in a 38 and a SA tried to convince me on how cool it looks, my husband looked shocked! lol, i didnt like it either, so left the store, went to another , tried on the 34 and wow...my husband loved it and so did it..the shoulders dont look so crazy when the fit snuggly...ill take pics and post them so you get an idea

^UNIQFashionista...thanks for your feedback. Very useful and good to know that I am not the anomaly or am too big to fit into the jackets. Would love to see pics!

You are right! The thing with these jackets are the proportions. I am 5'3". If the shoulders are off by even 2cm, I look off. I will need those super high heels to compliment this jacket.

Your pregrant? aww congrats! I am sure u will lose the weight pretty fast

Side note, I 've been getting mixed recommendations on the jeans fitting, finally a store here in spain recommended that i try a 38 ( and i was like no no 38 FR is too big, plus its low waist!!!) and i am pretty pettite and wear 36 in balenciaga...but they said that the jeans run very very small...skinny people size up one size and normal people two sizes lol
she said unless i am a 12 year old i could probably fit in a 36 or 34

so i am going to wait and try the 38 FR on, I am a bit worried that I might get disappointed...like i did in the past with other designers...like u know how u look at the clothes and u think woow they look amazing..and when u get it and try it on...it looks crap on u ? i hate when that happens..

I love Balmain jackets. It would be cool if they had it for men. Although, I'm not sure how that would look like.
