I wonder how Hedi would dress bodybuilder body types. D01, ranger boots, tshirts and no jackets?

I'm into bodybuilding and do compete, and have basically given up on expensive jeans. Over the past year or so I've learned what works for me. I go for bikers and bombers in the jacket department and still go for the boots (I've got chelseas and johds), just have to keep a balance.

I just think the silhouette of a Wyatt looks way better more sharp, narrow, and elegant looking, but at the same time I'm huge fan of the crepe sole. It looks like the CP's are bit bulkier like a timberland boot. 

I'm also curious about this subject. I walk 5 to 10 miles a day, sometimes up to 15, and I spend weekends almost entirely on my feet. I love the look of the SLP boots, but can they (and my feet) handle that sort of usage? Or am I better off opting for something like Common Projects or RM Williams as my daily boots and reserving the SLPs for days when I'll be walking under 5 miles?

The CP Chelsea boots looks similar to the SLP Nevada boots. Both boots do not look like the Wyatt models. The Wyatt vs Nevada/Ranger/Moto boots have a different feeling to them, with the former being more dressy and latter more rugged. The best advice is to get all the boots that you want so you won't need to agonize over which to get. The less time you agonize the more time that can be channeled for productivity etc.

The moto boot silhouette looks pretty damn good

Adamdraps, the only sensible option is to taper the D01. I've seen many staff members that have done this and got great results from it. 

 

On more muscular types wearing Saint Laurent, I'd personally buy t-shirts and knitwear as they are less rigid and have some give (unlike shirts), and classic tailoring such as cabans, Chesterfields, and blazers, as those are all made in a way that can be easily tailored in the waist.

I remember an SA telling me this about SLP denims:

Just think of D02 as a pair of tailored D01 and D01 as a pair of skinny straight jeans

If the D02 fit doesn't work for you, go for the D01 and tailor them to fit yourself.

 

So I would say, don't size up on D02, go for D01 in the right size and tailor them

if you can't even put on D01 in your size, then you probably shouldn't be wearing D02 or D01 lol

 Don't you dare disrespect Hedi 2013! But you're spot on about the Frye knock off sentiment. The slimmer shaft and more streamlined vamp makes them work better with skinny jeans though.

What suede protector does everyone use on their boots?
