Just spoke to 2 friends and they told me that considering the desert I live in (Dubai is not a desert anymore!), it would be completely ridiculous to spend this kind of money for something I would wear 2 weeks per year at most. I could not disagree with that at all...

For the velvet jacket, one of them told me it's leaning towards Philipp Plein (you know, that awful German brand that is louder than a death metal concert) with those studs on the back. That sudden realization made me cringe and now I don't want this one neither frown.gif

I used to live in Dubai, there is no way even during that two week period you would ever need that first jacket.

I was referring to the 2 weeks I spend in Europe on average per year. smile.gif

But yeah, you're right, even the coldest days in the year around here are comparable to an average summer day in continental Europe!

If you're after this sort of style, there's quite a similar jacket coming from Sandro in FW16. I know it doesn't match the SLP Bomber in terms of fit and fabrics, but maybe it's an alternative that doesn't cost you 3k or more:

Thank you - why are they almost 150€ more expensive than ysl.com? Is saks in US?

@plstcpssn Thanks a lot your input. Appreciate it.

I usually try to avoid copycats like Sandro and The Kooples and some others. I was told these brands pay their designers to get front seats on SLP's fashion shows to... well, be a copycat. I don't avoid them because of some snobbish reasons, but simply because I support the creativity of original designers. It nevertheless does not mean I like everything that Hedi puts out.

I did, however, purchase the Zara version of the viscose sunset jacket because I liked the color patterns more than SLP's version (+ easier to combine with my mainly dark wardrobe). So I guess I don't always practice what I preach...

Saks Fifth Avenue is named for its flagship location in New York.

Don't go TOO close to the stitching though.

Yeah well I just don't want to fuck up

And what about how they fit compared to the SL10/H?

Same as high tops

I love both pieces but I can only go with one of them - not only from a financial point of view but also taking into account likelihood of 'frequent use'.
Context: I live in a hot country for 80% of the time (for work) and travel a few times a year to a relatively cold country in Europe to visit family and friends. But emotions count too and I'm really fond of the leather jacket + I know that once that last piece in my size is sold, we will never see it again!

Which one should I go with? Price difference is also about 2-to-1 (the leather jacket is the more expensive one at about 3,650 euro).




There is an aged version that's really nice and the fur could be black but not sure..but I think aged with black fur is dope for me at least. Either way can't go wrong

Sandro is great. I do see the sl inspiration though. But it's great company overall as alternative

Zara sunset is cool but it's just too avaliable.. But i am a fan of that colorway over the sl.. debated over purchase

just wondering if these resemble the YSL.com photo or if they're more shiny/glossy like i've seen on other sites? I haven't seen them in person yet

I saw the Zara jacket online and liked it. It seemed like a cheap version of the SLP version, that I already own, that I could wear and not worry about it get in dirty or fucked up. In person the jacket is very poor quality. The print is digitalized and looks cheaply printed on to the jacket. Not my thing although the embroided jackets looked a little better and less of a blatant ripoff.

I guess you are pissed off at something or just very hasty to try and get a point across. Read it back.

The UK private sale started on the 1st.

I went into the shop to buy boots. (The sale was on as confirmed by SA),


Couldn't buy them in store as was not on their client list they had sent emails out too.

 

Online code for Private sale was working fine.


Not sure who told you the private sale only started yesterday... Pity as a lot of the online stuff in decent sizes went fast.

With this talk the UK sale - when will the sale start for all? I'm in London this weekend so was hoping it would have started by then for sneakers. Thanks!
