what was all the other stuff everyone was saying then?

is all this from the same shop boy who does the sandwich runs?

SirGrotius, I imagine you're right that quality would decline, as I'd imagine Vaccarello wouldn't have the leverage to be able to keep the corporate side from squeezing out all the profits they can at the expense of fit and quality. I still hope it won't come to that though, and no matter what we still have another season to come.

 

Funny you should mention Jil Sander as I was a fan of Raf Simons' first few years there. He was also producing my favourite work from his own label at the time (I'd say AW 2007 was my favourite season for both the Jil Sander and Raf Simons labels). 

 

I do still think that it's possible to dress very well from DH, but maybe the styling and futuristic feel puts me off. I like the idea of the made to measure service though, and this is probably the route I'm going to go down when I get around to picking up some suits.

 

Christopher Bailey is definitely my second favourite designer behind Slimane, because I really like his close fitting, very English looking, tailoring. He's not close to being on Slimane's level, but does make some very flattering, easy to wear jackets and outerwear that fit very well into the kind of British indie look that I like. Some of the shoes are nice too (I had the brown washed leather boots from SS 2010 and wore them to death, also had a pair of very sleek thin soled Chelseas from SS 2013 which were made in amazingly soft black leather).

@scanner @Prudy thanks for weighing in on the 01/17. Did they ever make a calf 01? Unlike most I'm ok with the shiny leather as my John Elliott is a matte leather so I'd like to mix it up. I had never tried the 17 in my size (44) until recently and got to try the 01 side buy side. I've come around on the 17 since it fit really well but still prefer the 01 style wise. Since the JE would be my "beater" then I'd probably be fine with an 01 as a more occasional jacket. Tough call..luckily both are incredible.

For those interested in the slp/JE comparison fit wise...L17 size 44. Also wearing the current patch knee in the 1st pic and the old in the second. Both taken to 14cm



John ettiott rider (styled horribly haha) in a small :


 

lol those John Elliot's look so much tighter than the patch knee

 

both look nice though

Kieran based on your fits and styles, I truly see you as a Prorsum/SLP guy in the pure. The only other things that come to mind is Jil and DH, but neither is quite to your aesthetic. if you're ever in the states the DH boutique in SoHo is edgier than all the others and closer to the original (Hedi) vision. the others are dressier and minimalist through and through.


I just hope Hedi goes back to Dior. it was so dominating when he was there.

LOL ooops didn't really read the post only looked at pictures

@mwn11 @Isolar damn guys I really appreciate your feedback! In fairness to the 01 it fit me just as well if not a tad better so it will really come to design ultimately. I could have bout it but since I have a really nice fitting jacket I was in no rush. I think I am going to grab the black and white teddy next then proxy an 01/17. Thanks again! And @mwn11 I'm glad my pic got ya posting!

@onlyslp ya they are both slp with the hem brought down a bit. The newer ones (1st pic) came with a better cut but even after tailoring are a bit looser around the ankle than the old patch knee. Both are very nice in person and the older don't look quite as tight as than pic makes me look.

@OakGhost no problem. It's definitely a tough choice. I'm curious about the fit of the L01, because it looks boxier in pictures but according to the measurements I've seen, it's actually smaller (especially in the shoulders and chest). Are you comparing the same size in both, and is that your true size or are you sizing up/down?

Will be listing my brand new SS16 Wyatts in tobacco suede in size 41 with fresh topy for a great price. It pains me to do this but I have to.

Will post in B&S tonight.
post #10257 of 15629

Would love to see a fit pic on the L01 to compare. I prefer the styling of the L17 personally but as said you could dress up the L01.

Hmmm after some deliberation, I think I'll pick up/alter a few pairs of jeans just for my SLP boots. Shorter inseam, maybe slightly more tapered. Still undecided what brand I'll go with. /RFT

Posted this on Niketalk a few weeks back but scored these at a Canadian equivalent of Marshalls/TJ Maxx. The Kooples Rider jacket (which in my opinion is very similar looking to a Saint Laurent biker) and SL17 Zipper Detail Optic White High Tops. I paid $299.99 Canadian for each item which is equivalent to $221.00 each. $442 in total for everything. One of the best come ups I've encountered...

So that's why you see all the "Kooples SIMILAR TO SAINT LAURENT" listings everywhere.
