Don't forget SLP is built for columnar dudes (slim but with a small drop, like an "I") so they cut isn't for you, you'd be better off in something like Dolce and they make those kind of dinner jackets, maybe Lanvin with some alterations would also be more forgiving.


well said. He can fit into the jacket but it will not look good. 

 

Some of Lanvin Fully Canvassed Dinner Jackets fits are slim which wider shoulders compare to their other blazers.

Looks like Hedi Slimane is in talks to take over as creative director of Gucci. I can't wait to see how many people drop off of Saint Laurent when that happens lol

I also realize that if he does take over Gucci, it might only be for womenswear and he could still be doing work at YSL, though I doubt that. Since Gucci is the parent company I'm willing to bet they'd rather the umbrella brand go under a major revision under his direction since SLP is already sort of on autopilot and he can have someone else or a team continue what he started.

why would it be 'lol' if people stop buying saint laurent?

 

surely its hedi slimane people like, not the brand?

Gucci is very LA...

They really do need a revamp, more so than YSL did, IMO, although Hedi obviously had a history with the YSL house.

I very much doubt it. Can't see Kering letting him run Gucci from LA, where I believe he is very well settled. Also there's only so many customers for Slimane's stuff to go around (he tends to be pretty polarising). Moving him to Gucci will just reduce sales at Saint Laurent I'd imagine.

I've found this Made in France YSL jacket. Can someone tell me if it's of good quality:

Gucci has much more to gain than Saint Laurent has to lose.

I appreciate that, but it's not really Kering's decision to make anyway, and I really can't imagine Slimane being too keen. I could be wrong though.

Money talks.

If Kering wants Hedi at Gucci, Hedi is going to Gucci.
