The Blake 30 versions worked great with a slightly thicker sole, so I don't see why it wouldn't work.

 

As a big fan of the cropped jodhpurs, how many pairs do you own now? Do you rotate through them or just wear the same pair and keep the rest until that pair needs replacing?

Shit happens. Even to 7000 dollar leather pants. Well, I officially joined the Lenny club.

All those jodhpur boots posted here...the common ones are the high ones right? not the cropped version of it?

From my personal experience I'd say size down one. That's what I did for my SL/01H. Went size 42, while I wear 43 in MMM and fits fine.

 

Was also wondering whether anybody could do a LC on these for me. What's a good price for them in this condition?

I sized down on the new surf sound sneaks last time I tried em on. Will buy a 41 even though I normally go with a 42.

Yes, they seemed quite adamant about sizing down on the web store.

How do these fit? http://www.ysl.com/au/shop-product/men/ready-to-wear-casual-shirts-shirt-in-black-and-red-tartan-plaid-cotton-and-elastane_cod38524720mx.html#section=men_rtw

Never owned a flannel and considering getting one of these. What size would be suitable for a shoulder measurement of 43cm? Thanks!

Wash tag looks off. It's not even the big crash codes. Here's a real one that sold recently which gives you an indication of market price:

Actually, you can skip all the sperg level analysis of the wash codes - even in the pictures you supply the code on the paper label doesn't sync up with the code on the jeans... that's your biggest alarm bell lol. :D

@GreatDane That's heartbreaking to see. How did you manage that, if you don't mind my asking?

 

Btw I was at that Lenny show in Stockholm, though not up front, thankfully.

I have several - a Blake 30 that I wear for every day use, a Blake 30 that I use for going out, and a London 20 that I'm going to keep banked for future use with the possibility of him leaving. I had a couple of pairs of the old ones too (the SS 13 ones with the really soft leather, and the AW 13 ones in the normal AQS00 leather), but sold both when the Blake 30 got released as sizing was weird on them (really loose in the mid foot so I had to go to 43.5 from my usual 45). To be honest they last really well - I've absolutely hammered the one I wear for day to day and it still looks pretty good when cleaned and polished. 

 

On sizing on the surf sound sneakers - I've only tried the low white distressed one with camo lacing, but they fit true to size. I take 45 in pretty much every shoe I've tried from YSL, except for the suede Hedi 30 I tried which I would have needed a 44 in if I'd taken them.

Thanks for the help! You're definitely right about the codes, can't believe I didn't notice that myself.

 

This one was definitely going under market price, but it seems that is justified now..

post #8848 of 14950

Speaking of cropped johdpurs, I just bought the suede AW13 pair and and they fit pretty well for the most part, but there's some slight heel slippage and dead space in the toes. It's not too bad if I strap them to the last hole, but I feel like this might disrupt the overall shape of the shoes. Will the heel slippage go away after I break them in? I wish they were a half size smaller, but they fit perfect with a thin insole inserted so I might go that route too.

 

Can anyone also confirm that the interior leather is supposed to be black on the beige suede pair for AW13?

post #8849 of 14950

The AW 13 ones had terrible heel slippage for me and loads of spare space in the mid foot - as I mentioned I had to go down to 43.5 from a true 45 for them to be wearable and deal with pretty bad tightness at the toes. Heel slippage does improve as the leather sole breaks in, so if it's just a bit then they should be fine, but if it's like they were for me, where I could literally take my foot out of them without un-buckling them in even a size down (44), then I doubt it's going to improve enough. I would only wear them on the middle hole that they were designed to be worn on for that model, because pulling the strap tight does change how the shoe looks in my opinion.

Just wanted to let everyone know I'm still up for proxy'ing from the EU and already have 2 styleforum clients!

 

 

Also, I'm still selling a ton of SLP stuff on eBay at steal prices like a cotton/linen military parka in black (mega-rare), m-65 camo jacket, camo shirt sz 42, sneakers, leopard le smoking jacket, etc.
