I suspect the camera angle was low. It does that to legs :-)
Like it that it is subtly flared.
@kieran84 Derby's look awesome man. I haven't worn shoes in like 3 years now--which is why I still haven't pulled the trigger on the surf sound low's yet. But after seeing your's and the lizard derby's I think the time is near.
No way I'll be able to resist a pair of those golden boots next season however.
Despite my previous criticisms, the things I most like about this new stuff is that it is a bit more dressed up. which is going to be fun to wear for a change. Very interested to see if it remains as hyped out as the previous seasons.
Thanks therattler. I don't wear them often because they're too small for me. The cropped jodhpurs were the first shoes I bought from SS 13, and as I had to size down a lot because of the mid-foot being so big in those, I just assumed that was my size across the board. I'd buy another pair of these in a heartbeat if they re-stocked them. There was also a slip on version on the same last with a diagonal elastic gore that was awesome, but that has never been reissued unfortunately - would be great with a slightly cropped jean (if I had a time machine to go back and buy all the things I want from the first two or three seasons I'd spend half my savings, but yet I'm having problems spending my money at the moment):
I do think the pointed ones coming next season are a lot cooler though, and easier to get the indie rock look with. I'm really drawn to the lizard one too. Looks stunning and works amazingly well with the sequin perfecto:
It's funny how easily we can get used to boots only, as I'd also forgotten how much I like shoes. There were some amazing Derbies in his DH times too, I had a two hole one which was beautiful, and I still have the classic four hole one in French leather which are probably the nicest leather I've ever seen. They carried them over years after he left, but I don't think they do them anymore. I still wear these for work with tight black jeans and a black knit, or white shirt black blazer here and there though (not a very clear picture, but the leather was exceptional - I remember a few staff members being pissed off when they stopped doing them):
Sick outfit man - what do you find is the most 'casual' + 'versatile' of the three suede boots you have? Wyatt or Jodhpur or Chelsea?
I have the wyatts and jodhpurs already and thinking whether to either get the jodhpurs in this year's slightly darker shade. They are so easy to wear with the 30mm and look so damn good with distressed jeans. I'm tempted by the Chelsea boots but come summer time I'm not sure if I want to be always walking around in 40mm heels which feel a bit more stilted -- do you find they are more comfortable than your wyatts? Also I'm unsure whether the chelseas look odd cos of the different in colour of the gore vs the boot.
Anyway just would be interested to hear your thoughts since you have all three boots I'd potentially be matching haha.
those are beautiful and look like they really held up well. I know what you mean about going back and buying everything. i couldn't afford much back then (was still in grad school) and so only picked up a le smoking, pair of D02s (gonna patch up the holes and re dye em--it's true that they fit the best by far) and the cropped jods. I hope that some pieces might show up on eBay/grailed should hedi leave.
@ohyehhh if it helps, i'm thinking about getting the suede chelsea because i think it would be more versatile for me. hoping for the 30s, but don't really care. plus fuck it. i have all three in black leather, need all three in suede.
Also is this the mid-waist FW15 jeans everyone lauds as being the tight one throughout the whole body?
Those are described as raw and I vaguely remember reading here that the mid-waist tight jeans were waxed/not raw? Can anyone confirm whether the knee-bagging issue is real and present.. I think Kieran said it's still not as tight as FW13 (knees on my overdyed still remain tight - granted I never flex my legs than more than 30 degrees lol).
Yeah those are the ones from the AW 15 show. They're kind of similar to the AW 13 raw if you go a size down, but with a slightly higher waist, looser thigh and looser knee. They are the skinniest black jeans that have been done since AW 13 in the knee though, but even a 27 isn't as skinny in the knee area as a 29 from AW 13. I have really low bodyfat and quite skinny legs, so anything but AW 13 doesn't work well for me in the knee. I actually sold my mid waists, not because they aren't nice (I definitely recommend them), but because I have some spare black and indigo AW 13 still left over, and I just prefer how they look. I also plan to experiment with other brands in the future because Saint Laurent jeans just aren't really working for me anymore. Looking at measurements on the Acne website, the Thin cut looks to be similar to the AW 13 raws, but I haven't got around to trying them yet.
the patterns look good but what kinda vintage SLP are u gonna be wearing with it?
the only thing i would make those is definitely more polished, silverish looking.
was advised against it and told that the sleeves will naturally go up due to inevitable elbow creasing. in my case it worked and am glad i didn't risk it on a 5k jacket
