It's tricky; if you're in between, the 46 tailored would be best, unless you think you're going to get smaller (i.e., lose a lot of weight), although I'm assuming you're fitting the jacket to your shoulders first.

The only place I'd get it done is in NYC where they'd send it to a "leather specialist" (i.e., don't have an in-house tailor, non-leather specialist do it). They'll probably charge you about $150 (a guess), unless you buy it there, of course. Anywhere else, I'd be VERY wary. The sleeves will naturally go up maybe a half inch from creasing, but you don't want them long since this is a cropped SLP aesthetic not louche RO.

Same. I kind of the jeans but I don't know if they are too over the top in person.

Finally wore the bleach flannel today now that I got the new patch knee. Shitty ig pic but the response from people was pretty crazy. Absolutely love the denim as well. 14cm over the wider shaft wyatts.

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

still thinking about them at the moment don't know if it will work much with what i wear

@oakghost that flannel and jeans combo is tiiiiight. My first love was the blue/orange. But you're making me want to grab that one as well. I've only ever seen it without sleeves though?

@needhelp - never liked those duckies. Only seasonal shoe I couldn't get behind. If you wanted to channel that season I'd try to track down the zippered boots with the three straps. They had a slightly taller heel and were way cooler imo

Did you taper them from the thigh to the ankle?

@therattler thanks, I really love them both but som how the one you have o couldn't pull off as well which is a shame because it has a more special feel. I actually really like the armless one as wel but can justify two of essentially the same thing.

@Onlyslp these are already pretty skinny (particularly the thigh) so I always take them in from the knee down about a half inch.

Would you wear the sleeveless on its own or layered?

@Jbidwal I keep things pretty casual so I'd rock it unbuttoned over a white tee, the denim I just posted with my suede Santiags, wyatts or jodhpurs. With the light wash of the new patch knee the suede explodes off of them. I honestly went back and forth if I should go sleeveless or not..really appreciate them both

That's the only way I could think of wearing the sleeveless too. You got me thinking now. Can you post a full pic of your sleeved one? The color in your pics looks much nicer than anything I seen online

I can give you an SA's number if you'd like

Yeah, I do think that shoulders are probably the most important part to fit as it can really prevent movement and not be that comfortable to wear around. I do agree though about getting the sleeves taken up - I had no idea about the sleeves naturally going up, I think all of my leathers so far have been a softer lamb so although I do get those creases, I didn't really notice much difference in the length changing.

Quick shot the other day - thoughts on the fit?

SIZING ADVICE ON LEATHER SANTIAGS: I wear a 43 in Common Projects/RO and 10.5 in most Nikes. Should I go 43 on these like my CP or do 43.5 like my other sneakers? I know the narrow toe give people some problems.
