post #13366 of 15628

With black jeans and tan boots it would be fine (this is often seen on the runway), but with blue and tan boots it wouldn't look right. Just don't wear it with that combination (even in this case, beltless would actually look better than any matching alternative in my opinion). Truth is, if you limit yourself to only buying items that go with everything, then you'll never build a decent wardrobe.

kieran what do you think of the brown aviator suede jacket? 

 

 

a suede jacket is the single piece that i don't have from SL. i think i prefer the tan version from a few seasons past, but the fit on this was perfect for me. plus it references western wear in a not so literal way, which i like. it's just not a super talked about piece. anyone else have any thoughts? 

 

re: watches. i wear a small omega planet ocean and swapped out the strap for a leather croc one. another key thing about wearing a watch with SL i think is a black face. keeps it understated and cool. i don't think mine is incongruous with the whole SL look, esp how i only wear it with mostly black and a blazer. and jewelry is sometimes the best way to add a bit of your own thing into an otherwise pretty standard uniform around here. this latest photo of hedi is not a cartier tank.

 

 

i really want that fucking blazer too. tried it on to get a sense of the new 70s fit and loved it. blazers are my favourite piece of clothing to wear. but i don't need 4 plain black blazers haha. who am i kidding. ill probably get it.

Is the tan one the same one that was on SSENSE a while back? That looked like a really nice jacket, but I prefer the colour of the one you've posted - would look great with a crisp white shirt, black / indigo raw jeans and black boots. 

 

By the way, I forgot to reply on the black low top trainers - I tried them again yesterday, and I really like them. The gold lettering that shows just a little, the shape, the small bow that you have to tie them with - awesome. With a striped t-shirt or casual knitwear they look great. These will be my only venture into trainers though I think (I do kind of like the Vans authentic and slip on lookalikes, but I might as well just get Vans if I want some).

I've never dabbled in colognes or fragrances before so I was curious of trying. What do you guys like to wear and how do you think Hedi envisions the Saint Laurent man to smell like?

What's your opinion on the 3 passant belt and cigar suede boots? I know if I'm wearing black jeans then it would probably look fine, I'm thinking more of a combination of 3 passant belt, light washed blue jeans, and cigar suede boots. Not sure how that would turn out 

I've been doing it and it looks fine. I used to be concerned about matching my belt to shoes but fuck it - it's definitely a great pick up, gets lots of compliments whether I'm wearing it with jeans or a suit

rattler - a small, black-face PO sounds like a great watch to pair with SLP. I owned but later returned the suede "Hedi" jacket in black. The fit was spot on, but suede was difficult to pull off in my wardrobe. I also was pretty nervous with it, since I didn't want to ruin the suede, so ended up returning it to avoid the hassle.

Finally, you can't really beat the slim, black blazers. Maybe to mix it up pick up one of the new charcoal ones. I rotate those in pretty seamlessly, and they give a versatile and interesting look. Black is always cooler though in my book.

Should probably match your colognes with the way you look and your personality more than your outfit

@Isolar and anyone who has the western belt, can you guys post pics? I've been eyeing it for a while.

As far as suede jackets go, I really love my black Hedi jacket, and think it's the best suede they ever did. But the aviator jacket is a close second. Of course suede is pretty delicate, but it looks great and gives a nice break from leather all the time. I've gotten a ton of compliments on that Hedi jacket.


As far as wearing a black belt with blue jeans and cigar boots, I don't really see the problem, especially if the top-half is black. A brown belt wouldn't match the boots anyway, and I don't think a tan belt would look very good. I generally disregard the rule unless I'm wearing dark brown shoes, which is very rare.


@GeneralNegative sure, I can post some. Do you just want close-ups of the belt or fit pics?

I could be wrong, but im pretty sure hedi had something to do with some of the Dior Homme scents. I think he did one called energy, but it sucks. And then I think I read somewhere he was involved in Dior Homme Cologne--which is pretty fresh and nice. In any event just pick something you like man. it's good to do your own thing whenever possible.
