I sized down one from Brannock for suede Hedi 30. Sized down half for calf ones. Ymmv.

Here are a couple more fit pics. Sorry for not so good pictures.
post #9843 of 16186

size down 1/2 on calf leather boots and 1 full size on suede boots only if you don't have wide feet

 

golden rule for wearing any boots: lower instep (the mid part of your foot) should be fitted but not tight and you shouldn't feel any movement of your feet inside the boots when you walk

Where'd you get them for $650? I paid retail and returned my pair, looking for 40mm ones from a past season instead. For that price though I wouldn't mind picking them up.

@Adrian Beckham, I think a hyper masculine look would best complement your physique. For sure it looks better in the 2nd photo when the jacket was unbuttoned and shorter tighter top (instead of longer t-shirt). You can probably roll the sleeves to hide the shortness of the teddy's sleeves. Darker coloured pants would probably help tone down the visual weight of your quads. Some chunky boots may help ground the whole fit together. 

 

Personally, if I were you and I want to keep my quads, I would ditch the skinny jeans and cut down body fat to close to single digit to remove excess bulk in thigh. Wear jeans with a still fitted thigh but looser leg (calves area) so that there is almost a 1:1 ratio to width of thigh and width of leg. Maybe something similar to Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil 4.

Okay cool. Yeah the buttoned pic was just to show fit, not really a look I'd go for. The jeans are def the skinniest I own, all my others so give me more room. And honestly I'm at 8% ish bf, I compete so my quads don't get much smaller. Blacks, blues and grays are my go to, the darker colors are definitely more flattering. After wearing the jacket around all day I'm leaning towards selling it and getting a leather.

I'm glad I took the plunge and bought it though, now i know what does and doesn't work a bit better, especially since there's no place to try SLP nearby. I'll be in Vegas next month and have a chance to try on and pick up more pieces; anyone have any experience with selection at the boutique?

I'm sorry but this is not accurate. The rule for whether a shoe fits or not is where the flex point of the sole lines up with your feet, and whether there is space for the toes. There will always be some movement when a shoe is new - it doesn't need to be snug against the mid-foot (I'd have to size down about 2 sizes to achieve this).  Heel slippage corrects itself when the sole breaks in as long as it's not major.

That's why I said fitted in mid foot but not tight and I only mentioned midfoot so yeah you're right there are always room at the heel

Size up or 2 on the jeans, way too restricting and tight. i have big thighs too from several years at the gym so i would definitely not be caught wearing jeans like that or people would look at me like im some homo.

 

when you button the varsity jacket, it's pretty much usually all the way...the half buttoned does not look good on u. it's either buttoned up completely leaving 1-2 top open or keep all the buttons open style.

Jacket doesn't look too bad but jeans are ridiculous.

my Blake 30 cropped jods were very tight in the instep at first to the point that it was painful during wear but it stretched out after several wears and now is tight but comfortable.

It looks really really bad. The world doesn't just revolve around SLP. Try Rick Owens.

I have wide feet and I use insoles as well cause I have a bad knee.
