Photos please! These are the only pair of denim I wanted this season. Bummer.

Edit: Saint Laurent's Canadian flagship in Vancouver is hands down one of the worst retail operations I've ever come aceoss. The employees are completely clueless when it comes to everything--what they carry, what they expect to carry, past season items, etc. I was just there looking for the raw hem single rip denim above and the lady brought out this season's black destroyed denim with oil stains. I told her these aren't what I'm looking for and I already have a pair from FW14. After giving me a blank stare, I asked her if she could tell me if they would be carrying the jeans I wanted and she told me she had no idea nor did she have any clue if they would be coming in a different delivery.

I was really put off by this as this is a far cry from how I'm treated at Rodeo and 57th (fuck Beverly Center and Soho), where they will bring me past season stuff from the back and call other stores to see if they have what I'm looking for, and I'm spending $2k or less with each visit so by no means am I anything close to a VIP client.

Flagships get priority, but all stores can check inventory. A lot of times boutiques really have no idea when things will be coming and they don't always arrive at all stores at the same time. Boutiques have no control over what they receive in store (excluding deposits/requests).

YMMV.

I've only briefly went in to the Vancouver store but Corey from the second floor menswear area was pretty nice and seems like an Hedi-head.

I was surprised how they didn't force guys to wear the all black suit and dress shoes. He was wearing untucked shirt, black skinny jeans, wallet chain, and brown harness wyatts.

I think I've met him IRL (don't "know" each other, but mutual friends/he's helped me at other stores) and he's a great guy. Really into the brand, and definitely knows his stuff.

Haaha.. yeah man I know.. I saw that they did that. I noticed cause it's my favorite boot. If someone has photos of the new fw16 version..
I would like to see.. To compare to the ss16 cigar. my personal fav was the light cigar from ss15. I hate how they still call it sigaro, but changed the "sigaro"

Is there any way to figure out if an SS15 Santiag was made in Italy or Spain?

1. The denim is 95% cotton and 5% poly.  Do the older raws have this fabric makeup?

 

2. The SS13 denim is still a little stiff (like a raw would be) but less stiff than both my SS14 and SS16 black pairs.

 

Here's the tag:

 

 

I also did some searching online and found this (same style and fabric code, just different color code)

 


I suppose if these were raw than the black D02s I got would be raw as well.  But, I don't know if the above denim is raw, or simply a "raw" type wash.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Also, shout out to Slann for always helping me out. He's really a great member of the community.

Bump.  Someone help me out please.

@SirGrotius Yeah, doing a zipper fly is a lot easier than doing a button fly. With button flies, you typically have 5 - 6 buttons you need to do in total. So that requires you put in 5 - 6 buttonholes lined up properly, then put in each button and make sure that all the buttons line up properly, and then make sure each button matches with its corresponding buttonhole. Whereas with a zipper, you sew it in and bam, closure is done. You probably save some pocket change by doing a zipper fly instead of a button fly but when you're doing hundreds/thousands of each piece of clothing, it adds up real quick.

This also came in from the online store yesterday. I took a chance on it because it's more versatile than the palladium jackets in the show. I absolutely love it though, and probably won't buy the musical notes one anymore. This one is way cooler. And cheaper.
