My bad, I probably shouldn't be typing on SF while I'm in meetings. :facepalm:

Can anybody with zip-up ankle boots speak as to if the leather stretches at the sides at all with wear?

I bought a pair in 42 and they're fine everywhere except the front of my right foot. It's the wider foot and it's just too damn tight. And before I just wear them until they rip I wanted to see if anybody's had tight boots that eventually fit right.

Thanks.

i think paying 500$ for a pair of skinny dad jeans is ludicrous

Hi there, I've found that they do stretch somewhat, but if they are uncomfortable to begin with, then it's unlikely that they will stretch enough to become comfortable, particularly later in the day when your feet are swollen. 

 

I mistakenly bought several pairs in a size too small, and eventually realised that not only were they too tight, but because the ball of my foot was a little too far forward compared to where it should be based on where the sole should flex, the creasing in the leather didn't really look the way it should (it was going quite diagonally backwards). After buying my true size which feels a little loose (though still quite snug in the toe-box), they fit much more comfortably throughout the day, and they haven't stretched out to any great extent. I know that many people recommend sizing down a full size from their athletic shoe size, but I've found .5 down to be a better fit, and I have very narrow feet (I take US12 in vans, and 44.5 in all Saint Laurent shoes, except from the first version of the cropped jodhpur boots from SS14, which were sized far too large in the mid-foot forcing me to size down a full size).

 

I hope that helps.

I was hoping for a little advice regarding peacoat sleeve length. I asked in the peacoat thread, but am yet to get a reply.

 

I bought the Saint Laurent peacoat from autumn and winter 2013, but still haven't worn it because I haven't got around to shortening the sleeves yet. I was wondering if there are any rules for sleeve length for peacoats, or guidelines that I could follow. At the moment the sleeve comes right down to the first knuckle of my thumb (the metacarpo-phalangeal joint), which looks little too long. On the runway it was shown with the sleeves cropped up on the wrist where blazer sleeves would be, but I think this looks too short, and will also sacrifice warmth. I tried searching, but couldn't find anything to answer my question. Here's a picture of the jacket on a model for reference:

Thank you in advance.

Many thanks for that response. Strangely, I added a foam heel lift and the boots fit a bit better (in both feet, but in the wider one, especially).

I'm going to keep them and probably just use them sparingly. They're chocolate brown suede and just gorgeous. I got a good deal on them so I guess it's not the worst thing in the world. Just was wondering if anybody had worn SLP zips (or any style for that matter) that didn't fit and had the side split on them?

Good question. There isn't a hard and fast rule, because as you noted the "fashion" sense is to crop it at the wrist, but some old-school practitioners like about an inch longer. The most important thing is to get it done correctly (from the armhole) so that it doesn't affect the buttons. I go for the fashion look personally. If it's that cold you should be wearing gloves.
