lose weight, buy the L17, don't settle for anything else. do you know how diminuitive the zipper hardware on any other brand looks when compared to that of an L01/L17?
in my experience i wouldn't bridge the gap/settle cos i know i'd always yearn for what i originally wanted - plus what better way to motivate yourself to lose weight, can treat yourself after :)
@ohyehhh Looks sick! what size is that then a 48? Deets on the L17 too? Calf/Lamb? Season?
ss16, size 48. lamb (mutton?) leather.
i had originally tried a size 50 in selfridges which fitted well but you could tell from the back there was a lot loose fabric. i thought that was 'good enough' and i was on the cusp of buying until i tried a 48 in sloane st which fitted like a glove. the reason i'm pointing that out is cos i almost went for 50 on the basis of it fitting well everywhere else but i'm glad i went out of my way to try the next size down even though i thought i wouldn't be able to fit.
btw, refer back to neonrider's post/review with pictures here, which me 90% convinced me to take the plunge haha:
@ohyehhh so good man. love the short tee showing off the belt. I might copy this totally for dinner tonight haha. SS16 L17 is something special, the aged mutton makes it tougher and durable, but still has that oily look of luxury lambskin.
and i'm with you on not settling. it just makes the inevitable SLP purchase more expensive.
