Hi - I have the denim jacket. the cut is great but you're right, it's a pain to wear since I usually wear raw blue denim. It looks good with black but that's about it. I don't wear it that much.

I wore it with khaki shorts once, but that was a crime against humanity.

Also thinking to grab black raw hem denim as my next purchase.

Worn these in leather (not suede) regularly for several months now. Not much discernible stretch. Definitely have not lost shape. I use fairly ordinary cedar shoe trees. From Woodlore, I think.

additionally, just to add... i got a chance to try on the black destroyed "stained" denim at the NY store. i was really disappointed. they fit huge, i definitely would have needed to size down. i didnt like the tears in them, and the stained effect was not really prominent. would really love to get my hands on the original fw13
that being said, the NY store is gorgeous! 3 floors, the top one is all mens. my SA even told me its now the biggest SLP store in the world, pretty cool!

Small Sac De Jour is £1770 in UK, canvas babycat trainers were somewhere around £300. France may be cheaper, not sure.

could you not just change the the countries site you're looking at on the official website?

 

or is that too difficult / requires some sort of brain?

Can anyone comment as to whether the SLP flannel shirts shrink in the wash (cold or warm water)? If so, is it best to dry clean as necessary?

Anyone knows what is the smallest size for the wool teddy jacket? 44 or 42? I am 170cm tall skinny which size would be the best fit?

thats actually a great suggestion. i'm just confused as to why you felt it necessary to express hostility in your post... unfortunate

Does anyone know how the quality of SLP boots compares to actual shoe-makers, like Crockett and Jones and Carmina? I've been looking for a pair of sleek, black chelsea boots and finally found something I think looks great:

But sadly, I get the impression that stuff by SLP is priced high and of low quality. Am I wrong? I wouldn't mind paying the premium if I was getting something on par with C&J.

Question for you guys:

Just purchased this pair of denim from Rodeo, told they were new for this season but haven't managed to find them anywhere else online. When I got home I wore them for a bit but noticed an odd "boxy" outline around the knee when I sat down. I turned the jeans inside out and found these large patches of denim in the knees. Is this sort of thing normal for this style of jean by SLP? Seems a little sloppy to me...





Kind of wish I could return them for something else but of course I ripped the tags off as soon as I got home bored.gif

How did you think they'd patched the knee when looking at them?
post #7917 of 14949

Hey guys, first time needing to post but a lurker and member of other SLP groups in other places.

 

I'm trying to figure if these two pairs of denim are the same. One is from Mr. Porter and the other is from YSL.com. I wanted to buy the new season pair direct from YSL but they don't have my size available right now. I ordered from Mr. P thinking it was the same pair, but now I'm having doubts. Biggest thing is the price difference ( $40 more on YSL) and the coloring/distressing is looking slightly different.

 

If they end up being old season, I'm just going to return them and wait it out until I can order direct from YSL.com

^ If you like it keep it, i don't understand this new season or old season hype. It'll be old season in 6 months anyway are you gonna throw em away?

Its probably what you said 'high price, low quality' if you compare to bespoke stuff. I just saw that site Crockett and Jones, they have a handmade shoe for 4000 pound WTF, how rich are some people sheeet.

I'm not comparing it to bespoke stuff so much as to these: http://www.crockettandjones.com/product/lingfield-black

I am after the lighter denim shown here and I assumed Mr. Porter was selling the same model until I had some time to really compare the two pictures and information from each website. It's not that it's a new/old season issue, but that the jeans have some aesthetic differences after looking at them. If they are the exact same after all when I get the Mr.Porter pair in the mail, then I really don't care I'll keep them, but I'm after these exact jeans shown below.

Maybe I am picky or OCD, but it's about the look, not the season.
