I'm not finding small sizes anywhere. If anyone has any idea in particular of where to call, please let me know ASAP. Thanks.

Thank you!

It depends, but about 4-5 business days on average.

Thanks, Raijin. Have to go get them shortened now.

[QUOTE=xcoldricex]ccp twisted shirt:

I saw that on ebay. I asked the guy to send me a pic of it on him, and it doesn't really twist as much as I'd like - it's neither here nor there. Still, I might against you on it!

Amazing steal, kLm. That coat wholesales for about $600. And it's amazing - I own one. Cloak had a lot of outerwear items at their sample sale shortly before Christmas - they didn't sell much. I think they're still too unknown to be selling at their current pricepoints.

That's funny, because KLM told me earlier that this season's prices have gone WAY up. Maybe a bad move for them this soon. I hate to think how much FW 05 will cost, since I like items from that collection. Not too keen on SS 05, so I don't really care right now.

sorry this is getting a bit off topic. but what's the sizing of cloak? i have a coat from the first season that's a small and is fitted on me. i was looking at an auction on ebay that's a coat in a XL and it seems like the sizing runs small. like a armpit seam to armpit seam (chest) : 22". i'm a 38 chest- am i just a medium or would i be a L too?

baklanyc, too late

raijin, most of the people don't ship internationally do they? and you have to have a japan address to register for yahoo japan auctions i presume?

thanks.

If you wear 38, then a medium should fit you just right, around the arms might be a bit snug. I'm a 40 and I tried on a size L coat, it was too big for me around the chest. You should definitely ask for mesurements though.

So I got a closer look at them at home. Man, this guy is good. Such attention to detail (unseen from the pix here). There is a fabric belt inside (because the pants don't have belt loops), they are lined in front, down to the knee, the buttonholes are slanted, the hook and eye is very long (so they don't open by accident). I .

Thanks . It's actually piping that goes up the side of the leg, but when it reaches the side pocket it goes around the back and then back to the leg. Tres cool and different.
