That first pic is pretty much the perfect leather jacket for me.
post #7832 of 15020

Yeah beautiful jacket that looks as good dressed up as it does with a striped t-shirt and sneakers. It's funny to think that by that stage, Dior Homme was getting all sorts of criticism, but for me personally AW 2004 onwards was the time period from which almost everything I'd like to own came.

Depends on your build, I'm quite stocky and skinny jeans looks silly on me, as my legs are too muscular.  Love the SLP boots and purchased a pair of cropped jodhpurs but need to be skinny to pull it off.

 

Look! disaster

Bergdorf has the leather paneled biker denim on sale in store at $950 (though I'm realizing now they may have never updated the price since everything was supposed to be 60%, so they should have been ~$640). Definitely a good deal regardless. A lot of sizes were there too.

Hey guys! Has anyone shortened their belt before? as in taking out leather from the buckle end, not puncturing holes or taking leather out from the tail. I purchased a western belt a while ago but it fits me too loose now (at the tightest hole) and would want to get it altered to fit me properly. Would appreciate it if you guys can give me opinions or experiences on this. Thanks!

Finally picked up one of my grails. Wyatts are next.

Was visiting Las Vegas boutique and the service was great. Might pick up some waxed black denim as well tomorrow.




So glad I was able to try these in person to nail sizing. I thought I was 42 but 41.5 was made for me. Fit can't be better.

Yeah I'm also not a big fan of Engineer boots but I love the FW13 harness motorcycle boots with black skinny jeans though! Kind of bummed out that SLP no longer produces these.

Yeah I have belts shortened from the buckle-end before which is technically the correct way. I'm not sure if regular cobblers have the tools for this but anyone who makes custom leather belts should be able to handle it easily.

I wear a 42 (snug) in these whereas wyatts are 42.5 and in sneakers I'm 43. Would hate to spend $$$ and not get perfect fitting.

 

These are my favourite boots (the high version), look so sexy/masculine/elegant especially with dressed down with tight fitting (destroyed) denim

I've done this, and I'd recommend taking it to a boutique or having a real leather worker do it (e.g., cobbler, hate to use the word, so antiquated!). Don't take it to your run-of-the-mill tailor or shoe shop, as they'll hack it off at the wrong end and it'll look butchered.

Since your sizes are pretty close to each other, do your boots and sneakers vary in overall length? Are your suede/calf boots shorter than your sneakers?

On shortening belts, maybe contact your local Saint Laurent store and find out who they use for shoe and bag repairs, and then try them. If in London, Classic Shoe Repairs do work for the Bond Street store and I've had nothing but good results from them.
