Your welcome! I'm glad I could be of help. How much were they? I had to pay full retail price.

They were $139 plus $15 shipping! A lot of their Superfine merchandise is on sale. I was thinking of getting a few other things. Have you tried the all-in-one jumpsuit?

Wow, you got such a good deal. I had to pay over $300 for my pair when I bought it in December.
I haven't seen the jumpsuit ydet but it sounds nice. Do you have a pic? I'm curious to see what it looks like.

Here is the Scoop link:

http://www.scoopnyc.com/Product.aspx?iPID=202601&iCID=0

Don't know what a size 1 means? That's the only size they have. I should call them, but I think I want to spend my money on a new sewing machine first.

I think it looks much better on the Superfine model (photo: superfinelondon.com)

I like it and the price is not bad either. But then again it's final sale and I would want to be able to return it in case it doesn't fit. I guess a size 1 would be a small or xsmall.

Yeah, I know what you mean. With a jumpsuit, the torso length & front rise have to fit so well. I also don't know how I feel about the leg opening. If you are in the market for more jeans though, I think they have a lot left. I was thinking about the Blondie, but I don't want to start a habit of collecting Superfines!

Yea! The 24's waxed Liberties have arrived. They fit much better than the 25's.:p

How does the finish hold up? Velony, mind lending your expertise?

Good to hear that the 24 fit you better. The finish holds up well but I haven't washed them yet. I guess you have to bring them to the dry cleaners.
I'm really looking for a new pair of dark blue jeans but I really don't want to start collection superfines either. Although it's tempting that they are on sale. I tried on the Harry style a while ago but didn't really like the cut.

The sales rep at Scoop gave me the impression that the waxed Liberties also come in indigo blue? Maybe this would be a good option for you, Velony?

I've worn my new jeans for a day, and they now mold much better to me. For a while, the waist and hips were still gappy. I think my hesitation with Superfines has always been the waist and hips. Now, I feel better about making more investment.

It's a difficult transition though, since I have been perfectly happy in Gap and Target jeans. The last pair of expensive jeans I bought were Earls, which I highly recommend if you can find the old styles on eBay. They fit like a dream in the toosh. I only feel comfortable buying expensive jeans if there is a tremendous quality and design difference, which I see with Superfine and Earls.

Depending on your body type, Levis has some nice, progressive styles...Let me know how the search goes!

size 1 is the smallest size. they go from 1 to 4 in all non-jean styles, including t-shirts, sweaters, jackets, etc.

Does anyone know of any stores in Europe - London or Paris - that currently have Superfine tees in stock?? I have looked at Printemps, Bon Marche, Liberty and Colette with no luck so far - have any of you guys seen any around? Or is it simply still too early in the season? TIA

they are shipping me next week, so i would imagine that everyone else is somewhat on the same schedule. try the stores next friday!

btw i hope you find the tees because they are always so fabulous -- i think there is a great button one and a great star one for spring. for fall they did an awesome '80s looking one and another star one.

Thanks for answering! Would the size 1 be appropriate for me, if the size 24 Liberty is slightly loose?

oh yes, 24 is totally a 1.

it depends on the block, but sometimes 1 is a little bigger than 24. sometimes it seems about the same.

OK, I'll keep thinking about the purchase. You haven't, by any chance, tried on the jumpsuit?

Btw, gurej.com has Superfine gloves, long tees, and a waistcoat (vest). They are all on sale. The salespeople at the store are super-courteous and helpful. Nice subtle bohemian feel to the clothing selection too!
