post #8776 of 14986

The caban tube coat is really nice, but I'm biased towards the AW 13 one as it's more minimal (and also because it fits me like it was tailor made for me). To compare the two in same size 48, the AW 13 one has a stronger more structured shoulder (could look boxy on someone small), a considerably smaller chest, waist, and hip (a good couple of inches at least - for reference I have 90-91 cm hips and I couldn't really go any smaller in this jacket at the hips, whereas the tube coat flared out a bit too much at the hips on me), shorter length, but bigger arm holes (they are still high, but I can wear mine with thick knitwear no problem, whereas with the tube coat it looked too tight for me with thick knitwear at the arm-holes). They re-released the same one a year later in both a blend and 100% wool, but it was a terrible fit (like something from Reiss or somewhere). Style ID for 13 version is 323890 Y964B 1000 for anybody that's interested. Highly recommended.

Retail was really good on the caban, like £930 if I remember correctly.

When I first saw them they didn't appear to be any wider than my French 85s, which have a slightly wider shaft than, let's say, some Santiags and the first iterations of the Wyatts. Once on, however, it was very apparent. Somehow the French85s don't suffer the same fate, they look absolutely killer.

I also noticed that the French Chelsea isn't all that slim in the ankle like the original Wyatt Chelsea, but still looks perfect with skinny jeans (I have the 60 not the 85 though). Same with the Hedi 30 Chelseas that I bought recently. I think it's to do with the angle that they slope up at. If you compare the two photos you can see the new Wyatts go up to vertical and then even more, causing them to stick forward into the jeans, whereas the French slope up more gently.

 

New Wyatt which sticks into jeans pulling them forward:

 

French which have no problem, even though the ankle isn't as slim as old the old wyatt Chelsea:

 

 

Hedi 30 Chelsea:

 

With the new Wyatts, it's as if they've stuck a shoe that was designed to be flat on a heel which causes the whole thing to tilt up and stick forward into the jeans. Terrible design.

Could that have something to do with the harness? Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't they come out with the harness boots first, and add the chelsea Wyatts after? I would think the placement of the harness would have something to do with the way the shaft was designed. Regardless, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

post #8781 of 14986

No both the Chelsea and the harness were from AW 13 (also a side zip, and a tall side zip cowboy boot).

post #8782 of 14986

Huh. Why they would ever design the shaft like that is beyond me, then.

post #8783 of 14986

Yeah it's bad design. The original ones were perfect and sold well - why change them?

post #8784 of 14986
I'm not sure if it's jut because I have small feet, but my wyatts don't stick out in my d02s size 28 from aw'13. I wear a size 40 and both the new chain wyatts and suede ones don't stick out. In fact they hug my ankles pretty well and were tight at first.

Hey guys,

 

Thinking of buying a belt and have it narrowed to either the 3 peasants or the saint germain in goatskin.

 

Also considered the western belt. I really like it, but I'm worried about the versatility. Do you think you could wear it even if you weren't going for the western look?

 

Any tips?

 

Also, how's the grain de poudre 3 passant?

I think so too but they all went to sale. 30-50% off etc


I know that's really because Justin Bieber and other cunts weren't wearing them then but... frown.gif

@Prudy thanks for the info. Been wanting to check out some slp in person in Seattle and heard barney's was pretty much useless because of their small selection. Good to know there's another place to check out...

Need to try on some wyatts/hedi30 jodhpurs to see which I want next, now that I have cropped black blake30 jodhpurs.

Just stopped by Nordstrom and barneys in Seattle today. Nordstroms had the black leather wyatt's, combat boots, and visvim fbt knockoffs for shoes, and for clothes various tees, Dino sweater, destroyed black sweater, leathers, biker jeans and various d02s. The selection was pretty decent considering they only had two racks.

I loved the Dino sweater in person. Wasn't a big fan when I saw it online but it is gorgeous in person and fits me perfectly. I think a lot of this season needs to be seen in person and/or grows on you over time.

@linstarthanks for that info as well haha. Damn, looks like they have everything I need to check out there. D02, wyatts in black leather, bikers etc. Did they not have jodhpurs?

Also I seem to find that's the case with most of hedi's stuff. At first there were many things like santiags that I hated the look of but over time it grew on me and I love now.

@Nimzerz I didn't see any jodphurs there, just the three shoes but I only glanced at the footwear. The biker jeans I found to be crazy tight contrary to what most people have said. The leather areas are quite unforgiving and really for those they either work on you or they don't.
