same. in a bigger size seem very long when looking down on them (which is how you'll see them 99% of the time).

would be better with the seams like on the website pictures; would break them up a little.

How do Santiags fit in comparison to Wyatts?

 

My fringe suede ones are a 44, debating between the gold Wyatts from SS16 or the leopard print Santiags if I can find them in decent condition

Just added some SS16 Wyatts and denim to our B&S. Want someone from our thread to take advantage. Quick sale since I need the funds for new project.

Cheers

Black Calf Chelsea Wyatt or Black Calf Devon. Chelsea boots are a classic style and because of its lack of hardware and overall lack of detailing make it ideal to be worn with suits (like the Beatles). Both the Devon Wyatt/Hedi styles definitely have more attitude and edge to them than something someone from the Men's Classic section would probably wear, just enough to make them special. All of these things make them appropriate for denim too. To me there's nothing more classic.

I think I agree regarding the sole, though I wouldn't be against having one pair of Devons in rotation. While all pointed boots will appear a bit long in larger sizes, I don't think they look as strange from the perspective of others as they do when you are looking down at them. I'm actually rather surprised they aren't selling well. I wonder if it has to do with people stocking up on jods/Wyatts prior to Vaccarello.

Black calf chelseas would be the absolute most versatile. I really think everybody needs one pair. As Morningstar said, the lack of hardware increases their versatility, in the same way fewer seams would (think brogues vs. oxfords). You can probably get about as much wear out of suede or jods, but no other pair has that same balance of elegance and rock & roll cool.

Yeah, I'd agree.  Sole isn't ideal, but I like the silhouette. Doesn't seem especially or oddly elongating to me, at least as compared to other SLPs.  

post #13568 of 15704

Yeah the silhouette and profile does look pretty nice!

G-Eazy is selling SLP hard. It's a shame his music is trash.
post #13570 of 15704

Not gonna lie, G-Eazy's music isn't half bad for bangers ans what not.  he just raps about the same shit, but his older stuff is hella chill. His VMA fit was fire, albeit I'm not a fan of the fully unbuttoned shirt.

Other than the black calf devon chelseas I can't see someone adding a pair of devons in their rotation unless they always wear a dress shirt

I was at the slp store to pick up something I pre-ordered today and tried on a pair of black python devons. I was wearing a pair of black trash denim and they looked okay...but it felt that the devons were too dressy to be paired with ripped denims or just in a casual outfit in general.......And even if I was wearing a pair of black raws I still think the look is way better with a dress shirt

I really liked the black python devons though so if anyone is thinking about picking up a pair I would say it's worth it

post #13574 of 15704

thought i'd have a look at what he was wearing

 

lol

While I haven't tried them yet, if I did end up grabbing a pair, it would likely be for dressier outfits like you mentioned. I think they could serve that look well, like in the shows. The python pair look pretty slick, I have to say. They're just harder to track down.
