Collection is LOLOLLLL but then aren't all SLP collections? I'm sure there will be some nice pieces available anyway. As far as presenting a great, unified fashion collection is concerned it is always crap but it doesn't mean many pieces don't work very well in a wardrobe.



Still wondering about Carine Roitfeld/PaulASmith, who supposedly gets to keep pieces from his shoots (and often enough to have an ebay resale sideline, woa!!) and apparently uses SLP jackets in "huge" sizes 50 and 52 for a fashun shoot (was this for Butt magazine?)

note: My friend once had to contact Vogue about returning a fucking pair of sunglasses and they requested to keep them cause Carine really liked them, they said ok but you get the idea. You don't keep stuff from shoots if it is of any value, hell even celebrities tend to get loans (at best).

I'm really tempted to get an L01, wanted one for ages was just wondering is there any huge difference between the womens version and the mens? I'm 5'7 and extremely skinny so I'm worried that the size 44 mens might still be too large for me. Judging from the measurements the main thing I'm worried about is that the sleeves or the length of the jacket might be too long. Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of trying one on since nobody sells SLP where I live, which sucks as with such an expensive purchase I want it to be perfect.

Buy from Net-a-Porter or Mr Porter, which both have great return policies, or measure yourself against the online measurements and see if they match up.

@Illithid Dude Yeh I would but unfortunately Mr Porter doesn't have the L01 at the moment. I took the measurements from Ssense and compared them to the measurements of a jacket I own and I think I'll be alright actually with the 44, assuming Ssesnes measurements are accurate, which they should be. 

 

@swooc Cheers that sort of length does look ok, I think I'll be fine with a 44 after all. Was just worrying too much about it.

This pretty much sums it up.

I'm 1m.73 for 56 kg, and I tried some bikers in man size 42 and They fit me perfect, i can't think of any online store carrying them in that size though, i think they only sell them at SLP stores. As women sizing, i tried a F38 and it fit me great.

@slann01 Cheers I think I'm just going to go with a 44, have never seen the 42 online and I think the 44 will still look fine. Womens version is more expensive as well for some strange reason.

@neonrider Interesting post man. I think I've said it before, but, without the antagonism I don't think it would be Hedi. Imagine if he put out a collection that met unanimous appraisal from critics. It would probably blow--anything worth remembering in time (art, fashion, music) is met with condemnation. Also, who do you think would be the right people that Hedi should hang out with? That he's so incessant with this LA rock and roll thing carries that fuck you that's essential.

 

Maybe it's just me, but I'd rather my girl look like a spoiled cokehead model than all of the other shit paraded down the runways at FW.

Slept on it and then bought them online this morning as I couldn't resist. I'm not sure how much I'll wear them with the heel, but they are still great. One thing about them is that the cracked shiny leather is amazing with the black jeans, and this particular model will break in and crease up fantastically. I have the 45 snap closure in the same leather (awesome), but I think the Chelsea is a little more me.

 

For those that have the 60 mm, how much do you wear them, and do you feel self conscious at all?

Once or twice a month.

 

Having seen the models at the SS15 show I was a bit worried I would like dorky as well. But you quickly get the hang of it. The 80 version would probably be another story.

 

I find them a bit tough for the feet to wear for longer periods of time. I walked 7 km the other day that was rough in the end. But I'm around 80 kilo. So if you are really skinny it is probably not that much of an issue. 

 

I usually where them with the black leather skinny jeans. Think they look awesome together.

 

Where did you end up buying the 60 version online? Have only been able to find the 80 one.
