YSL on Mr. Porter

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Interesting blazer on Mr. Porter. I remember at one time YSL was made by Zegna. Anyone know about the quality? Anyone wear YSL jackets, suits?

Would you seriously buy a blazer for that $$ without trying it on? Also, not such a great fit on the model. And why does MP button the bottom button??

Mr Porter has a completely free return system. Free shipping and return shipping.
Not being able to try something on isn't a factor with Mr. Porter wink.gif

Not big on that jacket but I can attest that Mr. Porter has great customer service and there is no risk in trying it.

$1800!!! Why not go bespoke for that price?

True. However, you can't return bespoke if they f it up.

There is no way for me to go bespoke as I do not live in or near a major city that would offer those services. Hence, I have to mostly order online or via phone for quality clothing. I would like to try it, but the travel to New York (or other city) would add too much to the total cost. It seems to me that London or major Italian tailoring cities is the only way for bespoke.

Personally I would probably not pay that kind of money for what is a Navy blazer. There is nothing design wise on this particular YSL piece that makes it stand out as a unique thing to own and thus justify spending retail on it. You could halve your money on a similar piece by a different maker / brand and not be left short changed in terms of quality.

But, to answer your question, I own a lot of YSL stuff (literally about 1/4 of my closet is YSL). Quality wise, it is as you would expect at the quoted price, it is very good. Their suits and blazers are fully canvassed, nice Zegna fabrics, there is really not a lot to complain about.

The label has seemed to have gone more conservative in recent times, in some ways a good thing, but in other ways bad.

Agree, but as others have stated feel free to try it on at home.
It's free with no risk.
