IMO the distressed jacket is wrong on so many levels... I don't think the old school rockers whose look SLP tries to emulate/imitate got artificially predistressed jackets. Come on. Get a "raw" one and just wear it, and let the wear and time do their thing.

FWIW they dyed that jacket several times with different colors as part of the distressing process as opposed to just thrashing a standard hide.

oh pls, don't get predistressed jeans then dude, or raw hem shirts, or raw hem jeans. Diy it all the "original way"....rofl. Also go thrift your stuff and tailor it to yourself. Thats the authentic way.

For those asking about the color of the Hedi jodhpurs this season, here is a comparison versus the 2013 ocher suede Wyatt. The color is almost the same, but the ocher suede has a slight orange tint comparatively.

Don't be ridiculous. Raw hem shirts or jeans is a look you can't get by just wearing a shirt or a pair of jeans. But a "worn in" look in a leather jacket? You definitely can get that. By, you know, wearing the damn jacket.

 

But please by any means go ahead and spend $,$$$ on a jacket with a fake "worn in" look that still has that brand new smell and an immaculate liner.

 

And FYI I don't like the raw hem shirts and while I'm ok with stonewashed jeans, as long as it doesn't have fake whiskers or honeycombs (damn it's sad when you see someone with fake honeycombs at mid calf or lower...) and the wash is uniform. Achieving that look with a pair of raw jeans takes so long that it's impractical and by the time you get it the denim will be very deteriorated. I don't like fake holes/rips either, but at least, as I say above, those looks can't be achieved through regular wear (or at least in a reasonable amount of time). But if you get a regular L01 or L17 and wear it hard in a few months it'll look much better than the one we're discussing. And you won't have the same fake "signs of wear" in the exact same places as the other dudes who bought it.

 

And while I never thrift anything, getting a vintage jacket and tailoring it sounds much more sensible to me than getting that SLP.

And the new nut suede wyatt from ss16 looks very similar to the og ochre suede but a little darker

Thanks in advance.

Everything is either tan or brown on ssense. I'd guess they have cigaro on the box.

I sometimes think about this too. I like distressed clothes, but am I weak for not distressing it myself? (rhetorical) 

 

I reconcile this by splitting it down the middle. I buy pre-distressed jeans because it can be hard to get the rips the way I want them. That being said, very few brands rip them how I like them, but there are some.

 

On the flipside, I was really jonesing for a SLP or Greg Lauren destroyed/half bleached flannel shirt, but in the grand scheme of things I decided I probably shouldn't pay that price. So I am doing a little DIY involving bleach, vinegar, an exacta knife, patience and flannel/plain weave shirts that I bought at Target. So far, so good! And I love that it is semi-homemade - Sandra Lee style.

Yes, I picked up that distressed L01. I had the soft lambskin L01 for a while, but found it too fragile/it wouldn't look good beat up. If the L01 came in a regular calf, that would be a different story as the calf would age nicely. I also really liked the distressing, it would take a reallllly long time to achieve the amount of distressing that's on this L01.

Definitely agree with you though that if it's going to be worn occassionally, the regular lamb would be better for you.

Good looking on pointing that out, I was unaware. I had asked the seller if there had been any alterations made and he said no. But now that you guys caught that it explains the low price.
