speaking of l01s, they should be true to size, maybe down half if you're in between sizes. at least for this season's version.

Its an L17 see the claso on the waist they are not at the end of the jacket. The collar has the extra clasp too. Its a L17 without the belt.

I love how the sleeves are cropped on you! Nice fit :slayer:

Has anyone cropped the sleeves on their SLP biker? I am considering it but am not sure if its a good idea. Anyone???

Creep -- outstanding fit. That's runway level.

Bakar -- there's been back & forth about cropping the bikers, but I don't recall anyone doing it. When you talk to the SAs they usually recommend not doing it, because it's a little dicey, and apparently the natural creasing at the elbow will make move up a half inch or so (at the most) anyway. That said, it looks a hundred times better a little shorter, at least to me (see Creep's fit)

Yea I talked to the SA too and she recommended the same, but it looks better when the sleeves are higher just like its for creep. But creep's L17 is 44 and he is 6'2", i am 5'9" and I wear a 44 L01, so it doesn't fit like it does for Creep. So I wanna know if someone tried cropping their $5K biker

Great question. I don't know about you, but when I talked to the SAs about that topic I always got the sense that a) they're a little worried about something going awry, and b) they're a little hesitant out of pure laziness on the part of the tailor. It's a big project, and I suppose SLP has to pay the tailors for the alterations, as it is not passed onto the consumer.

I wouldn't try it especially if there's any chance you might sell it down the road

Instead of cropping sleeves of ready-to-wear expensive jackets, have any of you considered getting one custom-made to your body's specifications "inspired" by SLP style?

post #7407 of 14986

you cut the belt off?

To be fair, SLP fits better than almost any other RTW leather jacket, provided you aren't fat. I'll nominate Rick Owens' intarsia jackets as a rival, but I am admittedly partial to them.

 

To do a custom job you would sacrifice on pattern, very likely on material, and almost certainly on manufacture. And to minimize the sacrifice you are going to end up paying something quite close to what you pay for an SLP.

 

So I suppose it comes down to ability and priorities. Personally, if I'm able to save the time and trouble of locating a custom job that can give me all of those by just buying an SLP  (+ their fantastic customer service) and then getting it adjusted, I'd probably pick the latter.

I agree with this, but I am just not sure how its going to end up looking like.

I'm not sure I can totally get behind this. While I agree to some extent that small sacrifices may need to be made, I disagree that you would have to spend nearly the same as what you would for SLP to get the desired look without sacrificing quality or manufacturing. That, to me, suggests you feel the markup for the goods sold by SLP is negligible. There is no reason that a leather jacket should cost north of $4000 aside from the label that it carries. You pay largely for the label and less for the actual quality of goods themselves when you get to these kinds of prices. The quality of the garments may be great still, don't get me wrong... but IMO they are not 10x better than, say, a Schott leather despite the 10x cost difference (disregarding the clear difference in fit/aesthetic).
