dior homme by hedi slimane fall winter 2006 toggle coat

one of the reasons why i love online store yoox so much, is that we never know what we might find on there. it's like a massive treasure chest, full of difficult to find yet brand new pieces from the past seasons. i found the below amazing dior homme coat from fall winter 2006, back when hedi slimane was still in charge.

the stunning wool and cashmere toggle coat was featured on the runway and their advertising campaign as well.

the coat available on yoox is a size 48EU, which is my regular size. anyone know how was their sizing back in hedi slimane's times, true to size? this is the only piece available. edit at 9pm: bummer, it's now sold. how quick is that!

amazing statement piece, i love it to bits.

  1. ive been reading your blog for quite some time now and I first just wanted to tell you that it's a wonderfuI guide to all things menswear related. I own a Dior/Hedi Slimane trench and it is true to size (I'm also a 48EU) and I treasure it since it was from his last collection. The toggle coat looks amazing!

  2. I have an coat from F/W 07 - and it's pretty narrow on the shoulders - I have wide shoulders so I had to pick a size EU50 and I'm normally a EU48. So my experience is that they are not true to size.

    How many coats do you got joe? :D

  3. It might be for the best, the rope and toggles might have become a pain. That said, the cut was superb, especially the rear view.

    I'm a big fan of originals. Those Slimane collections for Dior. Sander when it was Jil's.

  4. I know this is not really polite to ask it but what do you do in the life, what's your job?

  5. You've got a sharp eye!
    I dont have such good luck finding my size in stuff from Yoox.

  6. i hope u got your jacket coz it sold out !! nothing beats ur balenciaga gold button jacket.... cheers
