I wonder if you guys own the betty or bobby sneakers
Do they really feel confortable?
I would like to know if you can walk in them for a long time or they get painful ...

Does anyone know why she changed her sizing? It used to be "0-1-2-3" Now I noticed is "36-38-40-42"

did she? i'm glad she changed her sizing. 1-2-3 sizing is confusing. why was it sized like that in the first place?

I've got the Bobby and it took me some time getting used to, especially as I walk a lot too. I was surprised to experience this slight discomfort as the Bobby/Betty wedge is lower than on my Bekketts which are really like slippers and with which I can walk a lot with no trouble at all...

Has anyone tried on the flatform-ish sandals yet? I'm trying to figure out what size to order but La Garconne says they fit small and Net-a-porter says they fit big

maybe now she went global and she has a faithful community of consummers she knows that they can keep on rising the prices up and people will still buy anyway
jerome dreyfuss did the same thing

The coat looked like suede/shearling so that may explain the price (that and moda operandi has a price increase doesn't it?)

Also there appeared to be more sizes available than before, which is good for me

I was wondering if anyone has seen the long sleeved version of the Ulyse jacket. It's the oversized khaki army style one. The short sleeved version is on matches but can't even find a pic of this. It's called URO and is look 24 on the SS12 show. Have tried every uk stockist I can think of and am now prepared to look further afield. Would really appreciate any help.

^There was only one left, in 38, at the Printemps dept store where I tried it last week-end. It must be gone by now though.
I think I also saw the long sleeve version at the saintonge store but everywhere else I only saw the short sleeve one (which I prefer).

Thanks, there's a 38 in a store here but I really want a 36. I may have to just go for the bigger one. I like the short sleeves but just can't see how much use I'd have for a short sleeved jacket.
