Wow that's a very large cut! It's all back in stock online... I'm usually a US 6 and was going to buy the size M so thank you! How does it look sitting on the hips?

I got classic biker jacket from TRF for something aroung 150 Euros.
Bit pricy for ZARA trf but its real lamb leather and is Balenciaga inspired so I'm in love.
It runs very small though, I am usually S in jackets and I bought this in L. 0_o

i am also usually an S in other brands but have an M in a zara leather jacket...

i think the leather skirt looks OK sitting on the hips. of course it looks better in the ad on freja sitting at the small of the waist. if i had gotten the XS i'm sure it would have been too short and revealing.

i like the new studded leather jacket for 399. i havent seen it in stores yet however.

Has anyone noticed how low the armpits are on Zara blazers? It is so obnoxious because they are otherwise lovely. Is it possible for a tailor to move the armpits up or will this be an expensive alteration? I don't understand why they do this because they generally run quite small compared to some other brands. You can even see on the website how low some of the armpits are sewn although the models try to obscure this fact by holding their arms very close to their bodies.

i think most brands nowadays are like that, even the petite sizes unfortunately. and of course size inflation (vanity sizing) is rampant. a tailor can fix it, but it may cost more than 25$. you might want to try stuffing your bra for a quick fix to stretch out the fabric a bit. i'm going to have to resort to this for a few suits i've bought recently.

Yes, I recently bought and returned the tuxedo style blazer for this very reason, it was so ill-fitting and IMO not worth tailoring.

i tried these on in store today. They are very nice, better quality than I expected. I read a post somewhere (might not have been on TFS) where someone described them as "paper thin leather". I dont agree with that, I thought the leather quality was very good... Soft and plenty of stretch, not like that horrible hard leather that typifies topshop (mainline) leather trousers. I am thinking of getting the Zara ones myself if I can justify another pair of leather trousers/leggings. Would be interested if anyone could compare the quality to the Topshop Boutique leather leggings from a few seasons ago?

Oh, and the sizing was true to size, im usually a size xs and the legggings in xs were perfect.

For anyone wondering about the studio leather peplum dress, I bought it last week and its amazing. I wore it on friday night to dinner and got lots of head-turns, one person even admired it out loud! Its a really nice piece and amazing quality for the price. Found sizing to be a bit on the small size though, I needed S - xs was just a bit too tight on the skirt.

Anyone thinks that their sizes are getting smaller? I tried a faux leather trouser and I had to try a size more than I usually use and it was still small.

I also tried a dress from TRF and it didn't even fit at all

My size hasn't changed so it cannot be me

i bought the black lace tuxedo blazer this week. i'm still thinking about the trumpet black skirt. it does show VPL though, so i'd need to wear tights with it...

I think you might be right. I tried to try on a dress in a medium and couldn't even zip it up all the way. Anything larger than a 6 is normally too big on me so I'm not sure what it's about...

I wish they would stop putting studs on so many of their otherwise nice shoes

I got that bag yesterday as an early birthday present to myself, it's so lovely- roomy and looks like it cost more than £30.

^I'm so jealous! I hope I'll be lucky enough to get it too. I'll be regularly visiting my local Zara store until I find it.
