I haven't seen any irl, just basing my opinion off of what I've seen online.

Outfit today:



Nothing revolutionary, but I did get the chance to wear my new Wyatts, which are a dream.

How's the fit on the varsity? Don't think I could have sized down without it ending up too short in the body.

looks good @Isolar whenever I wear my varsity (black leather lighter one) I wish that it would expose more of my shirt underneath you know?

But your fit there is perfect. This is probably stupid but I always feel weird about wearing my suede boots with a black leather belt, and opt for no belt instead. Thoughts anyone? How were the suede boots styled with belts on the runway? This is probably a hangover from a rule my dad drilled into me years ago

@therattler Thanks man! I appreciate the feedback. Definitely agree with the shirt thing. That's probably why I mostly wear it with solid shirts/sweaters and not graphics.

As for the belt thing, I've actually considered this before. I also grew up hearing the same rule over and over again, so I can't help noticing it. But my thought is that you can wear a black belt with lighter colored boots (these are tobacco, but they look darker in the pic). As long as the contrast is visible, it shouldn't be an issue. This was actually one of the things that put me off the dark brown Wyatts, and probably why I mostly go for black boots.

I remember seeing a model on LVR or some site wear the brown/gold Dylan belt with a mostly black outfit (including shoes), and that worked, so I think these rules are pretty flexible given the right attitude.

@echau ya, I've seen some that are crazy yellow and some that are less..only a few that looked close to that top pic.

@onlyslp ya, I like light as well but didn't see any washes I was crazy about...sounds like you got a good pair

On belts, I also agree that a black leather belt is fine with suede boots in colours ranging right from beige, cigare, ocher and even right up to the dark chocolate brown, especially with black jeans. The whole matching rule is one that I don't agree with at all, and in fact, I think a belt in the same colour as the shoes would chop the body in half and just look odd. That goes for textures too (it's rare that Hedi matches shoes with different textures, for example suede or python, with belts in the same leather, even though sometimes there will be belts of that texture elsewhere in the show (see AW 15 and SS 15 for example). This mis-matching and rule breaking is really something Hedi does extremely well.

 

Some examples:

 

Black belt ocher shoes:

 

 

 

 

 

Black calf leather belt chocolate suede boots:

 

 

Black calf leather belt black suede shoes:

 

 

Then of course there was the SS 15 ones that were generally mis-matched, although I preferred the darker brown belts with the black boots personally like below, as the lighter ones looked a little disjointed to me:

Well written man, I agree with you. But i do also love the crazy combos between belts and shoes offered during ss14, like this one, awesome in my opinion:

post #11125 of 14950

Yes Slann I agree that those almost trashy looking combinations from SS 14 were amazing. SS 14 is actually my favourite collection from him (AW 15 is most my tastes and what I wear though). Speaking of belts and SS 14, I have the western belt, but I rarely wear it as I tend to opt for the three passant, original geometric, or saint germain, and I'm not really sure how to fit it into my style - maybe with some raw hem and pointy boots from next season. One thing I'd say is that I really wish they didn't put the tip from the women's show on it when it went into production as I prefer the way it looks without the tip in the menswear show.

I feel you but I actually like the tip as it differentiate even more the ss14 belt from the rest of the other collections. Which is the original geometric? I'm still on the hunt for one of the ss14 with triangle buckle, never found one in my size :'(

post #11127 of 14950
Thanks @OakGhost, @onlyslp, and @cloonz for your thoughts. I'm thinking about trying a pair out because the shade is different than the other blue denim I have from SLP and my other pairs are 100% cotton and these have 2% elastane. Just something different I guess. Will report back if I do pick up a pair!

I mean this shape one:

 

 

The triangle buckle SS 14 one is amazing - retail was like £790 though so I didn't get one. I'd remake it with a plain strap and 2 cm width if I could and it would look amazing. I also really liked the plainer western shaped buckle used on the double strap belts. Definitely more me than the western belt I have:

Awesome thanks dudes. I'll start rocking my belts with suede. To complicate things further, what about black leather belt, brown suede boots and blue jeans?

Kieran, do you have any extra of the original belt from aw13?

Nice. I've been eyeing this one for the past few days. What I like most is that it's not distressed so I can wear it 5 years from now.
