Saint Laurent Paris - Official Thread. - Page 907

post #13591 of 14949

Embarrassingly, I sort of have no idea how I would wear those oxfords. I've never had to wear dress shoes before and have always defaulted to dress boots. I bought it mainly because I anticipate that one day I'll encounter a situation where it would be appropriate to only wear dress shoes and I wanted a piece of Saint Laurent history from when they used the reina lux leather and the last looks too beautiful to pass up on.

 

Since the fw16 show, I have felt an internal paradigm shift to also view dress shoes as a core part of the Saint Laurent guy. Before the fw16 show, I have mostly associated boots as the main choice for footwear. Do you guys have any ideas of suggestions on how to style oxfords while keeping with the Saint Laurent spirit?

I think they'd pair well with most blazers and jeans, especially a Le Smoking jacket, and obviously the suits. You could easily swap them in for any dressier looks, especially if the setting is more formal. I do, however, think they look best with slightly cropped jeans. I have the pleated wool trousers from AW14, and I think they would look great with oxfords and, say, my black velvet-trimmed chesterfield from AW15. I agree with you, the dress shoes don't get nearly enough press, though they are often quite striking. I find it's particularly difficult to find dress shoes that work with the brand aesthetic, perhaps even more so than boots.

I tried one on in 42 (ouch!), definitely cut slimmer in the body with a decent drop. I could zipper it and have no belly, but after a meal...Arms still aren't as skinny as I like. Leather is sensational, very buttery. For some reason I always thought it was good, not great until this one.

I own the calf L01 in size 44. The link to the prior post about it is below. I agree that it's still a bit boxy, but really quite slim fit compared to other items I have bought at size 44. In case it is helpful, I am 5' 6" and 127 lbs, so if you are taller it will certainly appear more cropped.

Thorns. Did you get shoe trees for those oxfords? Do you usually use them for boots?

It's awesome.  Stuff sells through pretty quickly(don't think leather pieces even hit the floor), but the selection and pricing(~20% less than US retail) was far better than I expected and all of the staff is great!

There are no cheap alternatives so you better start saving bro

I do use shoe trees just because I love babying my footwear and I know that I will likely not be able to buy them again in my size because they stopped producing the models I like. I'm not too picky with the shoe tree since as long as it fits reasonable well it is good enough because none are lasted for these specific models anyways.

Nice shoes. The dress shoes are pretty easy to wear I think - black / indigo raw skinny jeans, white dress shirt and black blazer is an easy place to start. They also work fine with dressier black knitwear and black jeans. Lots of staff wore the Richelieu that way and they looked great. I do think the Oxford is slightly harder than the old Derby though due to being more formal, but they shouldn't be a problem. On jeans length, I think they work great with a break, no break, and slightly cropped. Hedi has shown them pretty much all ways:

@therattler I saw those this morning! Not sure I'd go for the burgundy (or even velvet), but I love the design of their two-hole derbies. Almost bought a pair in patent leather a few seasons back, but I couldn't find my size. I remember them being quite reasonable at the time as well, like €450.
