If I wear a 43 in Margiela GATs, can I go down to a 42 in leather Santiags?

have you perosnally used this on tan suede slp boots? no discolouration?

I've also got plenty of other items for sale.  Users have been hitting me up for proxy as well, so let me know if interested in anything.

 

Thanks!

aren't you the guy that just marks up fatimamendes.com sale items and lists them on ebay, even though they ship worldwide anyway?

hedi 30 Chelsea, hedi 40 Chelsea, or jodhpurs?

Hedi 30 chelseas first IMO. Add some heel variation since your current boots are both 40mm.

Guess it depends on the style you prefer since the current model jodhpurs are also on a 30mm heel. I personally prefer the styling of chelseas so that'd be my choice. Totally up to you otherwise.

Rattler I think you mentioned that you have the black leather Hedi 30 Chelseas too right? They're fast becoming one of my favourite boots along with the original Wyatt Chelseas in black leather.

 

Yeah man, those are my everyday boots. I used to rock the cropped jodhs everyday. can't praise them enough. their low key, but just sleek enough to make look cool. i'll get a new pair as a back up soon too. anyone who's wondering what to get next it should be these. they work with anything and allow you to have more fun with the rest of the outfit.

 

I'm with you on the new thin soled boots. interested in seeing them but not sure if they'll be me.

Not sure about the new thin soled boots either, I like my boots a little chunky just so it's not feminine with the heels.

 

I like the thin soled derbys though haha can't wait to try them

 

btw do you have other colors of the hedi 30 chelseas? And.... I was actually kinda iffy on the chelseas cuz I wasn't sure if they would look good with just a t-shirt and jeans. How do you style them usually?

post #9731 of 14959

I think I'd go with the Hedi 30 black leather Chelseas too, because as The Rattler just pointed out, they are very easy to wear with anything and still look really sleek. For example the first time I became interested in them was after seeing a member of staff wear them with black skinny D02s cropped, a 3 passant, and one of the fine merino black crew necks tucked in which is very much my kind of style. Have since seen the same member of staff wear them with the 17 cm gabardine trousers and they also look great. On the other hand they also look great worn casual, for example with raw hem:

 

 

I personally wear them with raw black / raw indigo jeans, striped knits and t-shirts, black knits, black silk t shirt, black pleated shirt, black caban, black hoody, etc. They pretty much work with anything - am still in the process of trying to get a blazer of some kind, and will also wear them with that and a white shirt as many of the staff do. 

 

They are different enough from the Wyatt Chelsea to actually warrant having one of each though, but without a doubt if you were only going to have one then I'd go with the Hedi one for it's versatility. Also with the new versions of the Wyatt Chelsea, I've found the wider ankle shaft is more likely to be a problem because of the extra height of the boot (in addition to the heel, the boot itself is about an inch and a half or so higher). The Hedi 30 don't really have a slim shaft, but yet skinny D02s fall great with them, even when cropped.

 

One other point is that they also feel sturdier. I noticed they weigh more than the Wyatt Chelsea that I have, despite being lower, and the leather on my SS 16 ones is the same as the old leather used on all the boots around SS13 - AW13 (although this can vary by batch).

 

On the thin soled boots, I'm definitely getting them in black leather if available as I love my French, but not sure I like the suede with thin soles - can look a bit slipper like to me. The pointy Derby is 100% on my list in either plain black or lizard. The boots look to have a 3-3.5 cm heel which is nice, and the derby a 2 - 2.5 cm heel - perfect.

I have the black leather and tan suede. i don't like wearing my wyatts with my l01, its too much, which is when the chelseas are perfect. likewise, ill probably wear the chelseas, black jeans, t, and sunset teddy.

 

you cant go wrong with chelseas, t and jeans look. its a subtle way to do slp.

 

i agree with everything @kieran84 just said. amen.

post #9733 of 14959

Damn now that you guys are talking about it like it's holy grail I wanna get some hedi 30 too

 

How is the sizing on them though?

 

and btw as to the wider shaft problem. I'm a 39.5 in black leather wyatt and 39 in suede so I have no problem fitting them under my jeans.

 

And you right, the black leather on my wyatt is like the older leather used back then and i got new ones this season since i sold my old ones from fw13 for like almost 2x the original price lol

post #9734 of 14959

everybody can buy a pair of wyatts to take a few photos in. Chelsea's you can look cool 24/7.

 

I always take a 42, in all my slp.

is it weird that i usually dress down with my wyatts and just pair them with a pair of skinny jeans and plain t?

 

lol now that @kieran84 posted a picture of them they do look pretty sleek and versatile. i never really paid attention to them before haha
