Went with this today. I think the blood red flannel goes well with the biker but it needs some more popping layer under. Any recommends? My idea was to grab some eye popping vintage western shirts off of ebay

Absolutely love the jacket, seen it from the collection photos but never seen one up for sale anywhere (not that I could grab it even if I did!)

Possibly some kind of monochrome patterned shirts? Would help bring the focus to the jacket and obviously compliment the jeans and the boots if you took the jacket off etc.

Some kind of relatively plain silk shirt might be interesting cause of the way the material catches the light, would add a different texture to the outfit.

@slann01 That jacket is absolutely beautiful, and it works so well with the rich crimson shirt. The bottom half is a classic, yet flawlessly executed. 

 

Phenomenal fit.

That's a good point

Coming from a guy that weight trains this is my take on the subject. If I bought pants according to my actual waist size I'd have problems with tightness in the legs too. I personally get pants with enough room to fit both my hands in the waist no problem, regardless if they're SLP, skinny, etc. (raw denim is a different story) and I'm good. That's means I'm always looking for a pair that's 18" because that's what I find most comfortable regardless if it's composed of stretch material or not, even though I really have a 16.5" waist. Everyone's idea of how your pants should fit in the waist is a subjective thing because it's all preference maybe you're taking your waist size too literally. What may be tight to you may be average fitting to another person's preference.

I hate to bring down the conversation but has anyone every run into bad tailoring from a boutique? I purchased the elbow-patch grey wool jacket in the Chicago store and had it tailored there. I was very emphatic with the tailor and SA to take the sleeves up from the shoulder so the patches wouldn't be misaligned.

Of course they sent it to me taken from the sleeve up so it looks awkward and strange to me. I took a picture relative to my black corduroy elbow patch jacket which was done correctly. Notice the distance between buttons and elbow patch.

My SA said he's checking with his manager to see if he can do anything but I'm nonplused since this is a very expensive jacket and it looks weird now.

Any recs for next steps?

 

 

Thats a shit one :( get what you mean about it looking strange. Surely you have the right to refuse it as it not what you asked for and the tailor would have to eat the costs?

Edit: on a positive note they're taking care of it.

Great stuff from Jacob and Slann above.

I know in the UK we have the consumer rights act which can be used to refuse products. Regardless if its complimentary for you or not (I'm sure SL pay the tailor) you have asked for a service/product and not been given what you requested.

Would be similar to getting your car serviced and it coming back faulty/damaged.

The waist button on my FW13 crash jeans popped off today. It was my first time wearing these since I started working out again so they were pretty tight when I put them on. Is there any way to get this repaired while keeping the original button? I know these denim tack buttons are very difficult to remove once they've been used...

the wool oversized shirt and the jacket are great on their own, but together it doesn't work. Believe me, i've tried with that plaid wool shirt, but it's thick enough to be an outerwear / jacket piece on its own. IMO SL Leathers rarely look good with button ups unless they are tucked in or near the hip.

agree completely. I prefer wearing a tshirt instead. If you wear a buttonup, i feel you HAVE TO tuck it in.

Does anyone know if there is a slight chance that a camo military jacket will be released ss17???? I hope that there is. I regret not buying one earlier. If anyone wants to sell let me know. Size 44.
