That's a good question DS.

I'm about to purchase a pair of 15.5 destroyeds this weekend. And I don't know if I should do the 32 in regular destroyed, or go with the size I'm recommended to get (a 33 or 34) in the super destroyed. I really want the regular destroyed but fear they maybe tight, and would hope they'd stretch. I'm usually a 32 in my usual go-to denim (LVC, APC, RRL).

I'd almost say size up 1 based on my experience mate, but it's hard to say really. It depends on what you're comfortable with too!

I stayed true to size on my biker boots, they fit pretty snug but not uncomfortable/unwearable.

Just incase anyone is getting the 15.5s, they do stretch a lot. Mine feel like a second skin now, and aren't uncomfortable in the slightest.

That goes for any of SLP's 15.5's? so for the lightly destroyed if I get a 32 (which is my size in normal jeans) they should stretch?

Hey Guys figured I'd chime in with my experience with a pair of SLP denim i recently purchased.

D02 M/SK-LW
99% Cotton 1% Elastane

I ordered them on matchesfashion.com and I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Based on the model number they are considered skinny but they don't fit like it what so ever.

I wear a size 36. 6'2'' 230lbs. I would consider my build semi-athletic with defined calves.

When i first put these jeans on they were pretty tight but by day 2 they loosened up quite a bit due to the elastane element in them. they are way more comfortable now that I've pretty much broken them in after i took my dog to the park, he snapped the leash and i had to chase him down in them LMAO after that incident they fit more on the slim side.

i took some measurements. inseam:34.5" Hem: 7"/18cm based on how they fit i wouldn't even consider getting a pair of 17.5 or 19cm SLP denim in either 100% cotton raws or the ones with polyurethane mixed in. because the hems would be way too baggy in my size. my skinnys carry the same hem as the straight leg model and i am pleased it worked out that way.

the waist is accurate with enough room in the thighs and seat that they don't look like I'm wearing girl jeans and i can grip the denim with my thumb and index ( a test i do to ensure if the denim is too tight in the thigh and for purposes of range of motion) . the ankles stack nicely and pull away from skin after it rounds out the calves. don't let the bony models on ssense and other sites fool you. no matter what style you get skinny, slim, or straight the denim is cut very narrow it just depends on the type of hem you choose to go with that makes all the difference in the look you want to achieve.

I compared them with a pair of DH MIJ raws 19cm i own (slimane era) and these SLP's in my opinion are much better to ME because the ankle stacking in the DH were too baggy for my size even when i ended up sizing down to a 34 instead of my TTS 36.

The SLP denim in general are made for a streamlined appearance and i knew this before buying them just based on looking at how they fit the models on these sites. once your size is over a 32 your measurements start to cross over to the next hem. so in my case the skinnys which were a 16cm style ended up being 18cm (17.5) in a size 36. which made me not even want to go with a 19cm style because they'll just double up in the hem and be too loose in the places i don't want hence not even looking like the intended style of the denim. i have worn them with high top sneakers tongues in or out and they swag so nicely. but low tops are ideal for me when i rock these because that stacking looks so clean compared to my DH because its so much less bulky fabric around the ankles

hope this kind of helped. i attached a fit pic with the denim i just reviewed.

On an unrelated note, you need a pair of the blue Balenciaga cotes to wear with that sweater. satisfied.gif

I currently own two pairs of SLP jeans.....both 29 waist,15.5 hem....one is the black destroyed skinny, and the other is the blue super destroyed with the chains. 

 

They definitely loosen up after some wear, though the chained denim not as much (given the chains themselves obviously don't stretch, limiting the amount of expanding that is possible). 

The cut is definitely very tapered on the 15.5, so while the waist and crotch areas are pretty loose, the knee and calf areas are where the tightness is most pronounced. 

 

I'd say, if you're buying the 15.5, do consider sizing up one......the other hems i felt fit pretty true to size for me.

Can someone comment on the 15.5's material? How can it be "raw" if it has 2% elastane? I'm not a denim expert so I'd like to know.
