Damn nice combination!

what boots are you wearing in that pic?

suede looks like the same as the original 13 suede.

 

this suede looks better than the last few versions also.

is the shirt in this listing for sale anywhere?

also, LVR use samples for their pics so the fade on the version you get might just be the same as other retail versions.

It's because they are the FW13 Wyatt Ocher chelseas in the pic icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Also, I really hope thats not the case with LVR, but I guess I would take the one the boutiques have if it really is just the sample

Does angina know why some of the shirts are 890? Almost a grand for a flannel is a bit much

I was going to throw a comment about shorts, t-shirts and other overpriced garbs SLP is selling, however, I've checked out the new flannels and while i'm in no way justifying the price, they are extremely well made and quite unique. Not only is the cut and tailoring immaculate, each 3 or 4 inches is sewed (i think) while retaining the cut. I'm not sure how its done, but surely that type of pattern and manufacturing took a while to implement and achieve. On top of that, you've got a very intricate dye process and handmade distressing. In my opinion, $890 for something like that is much better than $690 for a simple pattern and cut as we've seen for the last 3 years.

beautiful. this is the point of the permanent collection, i think. it serves as the base which seasonal things can be incorporated into.

They're fantastic, however I am still wearing the SS15 used Hem which are a bit longer than raw hem and still have tons of wear left. The SS16 is the same but with a few rise tweaks / Mid waist / and a bit shorter inseam with a tailoring tweak that stacks. 


Are yours d02 SS16 fray bottom?

No, D01. There is no D02 SS16 Raw Hem (or any D02 that i've seen), even though they are labeled as Skinny.

Correct, but this season is not about skinny, though you can certainly achieve that by sizing down. Believe it or not, my SS16 D01 Raw Hems are much smaller all around then my SS15 D02 Raw Hems which are about 3 or 4 inches longer and have about an inch or two bigger waist. 

 

If you want to analyze even further, SS13 D03's are still the tightest and skinniest jeans I own. At the end of the day, I don't buy into the D01, D02, D03 thing much, especially if they are treated or washed. The amount of elastane also affects how they fit. SS13 is 100% Cotton and unforgiving with stretch, while everything after loosens up quite a bit.

Not at all.. For one, the SS16 D01 Raw Hem is Mid Waist, and on top of that it's going to be an entirely different fit from anything released in the past due to the shorter inseam and slightly wider hem. 

 

If you're a fan of 14 and FW13 your best bet is to get those or try on a pair of SS16.

I'm not sure who it was that was previously talking about the new Hedi 40 gold boots, but i picked them up in-store yesterday, they only had the one pair in the London store. They are much brighter in person than the stock photos on the webstore.. But anyway, a couple of photos for anyone that wanted to see them in person. On another note, the Fringed boots were very nice too.
