If it is easy to try on a smaller size then I would check it out just to have that information to help you finalize the decision.


I think some of that is due to holding the camera and trying to get a decent shot. It actually feels pretty good in the shoulders otherwise.

 

I think losing any length in the body is going to look awkward on me, certainly when closed, since then the jacket will sit just above the waistband of my jeans.

 

I wish I had a Saint Laurent store nearby, but I mostly have to make do with researching stuff then ordering online.

Yeah, cropped jacket is quite limiting in the styling potentials to it. Even with cropped sleeves, Hedi often either chooses to accessories to cover the bare skin or has a shirt underneath that covers the skin. I really like this look though because it makes a skinny person look even skinner and taller.

I think it works particularly well for certain types of jackets too, especially those that are otherwise quite fitted, like the one pictured. Also, I think the jacket has to be cropped well above the belt if it's going to work. If I sized down, I think it would just sit awkwardly against the top of my belt and look kind of off, like I'm wearing my little brother's jacket or something.

 

I was planning on using the teddy as a sort of go-to casual jacket, with a variety of different outfits, so I think I'll stick with the 48. I just tried it again and it actually fits pretty great in the shoulders, better than pictured. It slopes down nicely after the outside strip of leather.

Beating a dead horse now, but adrian looks like he is a bodybuilder based on those quads and shoulders, Rick owens may be designed for "athletic people" but I take that more to mean "marathon runner" body type. There is no way he designs his clothes for people of adrian's body type, because then noone would buy his clothes, and the "muscly" people I see wearing rick owens are, in the grand scheme of bodybuilding, not muscular at all. Take rick owens for example, he looks like a marathon runner who weight trains and not a bodybuilder. 

 

Anyway, here are pics of Charly, who is definitely muscular by my definition, wearing rick owens:

It looks good on him but I can't stand the whole rick owens style.

I saw pics of and had a chance to purchase 40mm hedi jodhpurs before I purchased my ss16 ones, I think the heel looks a bit odd too and it's nice to have some variation in heel height from the wyatt. And i'm 6'3 so I prefer wearing the lower heels I don't really enjoy being significantly taller than everyone I interact with

I've always been attracted to the RO aesthetic, but it's for me to forego since I'm 5'6" and not going to have a shirt hang down to my knees!

Anyway, the Teddy looks great on your Isolar. Adrian, I wasn't as aghast as some on this forum, generally after getting into a brand like DH or SLP you'll find that you'll lose weight a la Karl Lagerfeld. I went from 150 and very "muscular" to 123, basically so the clothes drape better. You probably need to have <10% bf for it to look great, but otherwise it'll look just good. It feels a lot better too obviously besides the health benefits.

I do like the way the teddy fits on Isolar, but it's not meant to be for my body type. I don't get much smaller, even at 6-7% bf I'm still 188ish. No worries though, lesson learned.

I like wearing my normal leather wyatts with the fw15 stand collar overcoat.

Thanks, I understand what people say about the chains being too much flash, by I personally love them. Most of the time, it's just black top and black jeans for me, so the chains add a little to the simple fit.

You guys should also take into account that fashion cuts / trends have changed since Hedi SLP hit. That pic from third looks has been around since 2009 and since then Rick has altered the cuts of nearly every item in his collection. Most of his T-Shirts now are cropped and small immediately following the fitted trend that Hedi re-vamped. Even the leather bombers are cut much closer to the waist. 

 

I mean, whatever... this is the SLP thread, not RO. @needhelp you wear RO well, based on your pics in the RO thread.. I personally am not muscular and can never fit into most RO without looking like a doofus. You are super svelte and have a delicate frame and are able to wear anything, but please, don't assume that because RO is a body builder he is designing things for himself, he is a brand ambassador as much as Hedi is a brand ambassador making cuts ranging from size 26 - 36. That doesn't mean that SLP size 36 is something Hedi would wear or promote.

Stick to John Elliott, I think?

I like SLP alot...i'm just saying it's way too tight.

I was pointing out your idiotic and offensive HOMO comment.

This is the standard fit that you should be aiming for, it shouldn't go past the waistband if it does then it is too long, a slight crop this is how it is intended to be worn. Cropped would be even higher much like that image from FW13 someone posted.

Agree. I personally think the best way to dress yourself is to dress accordingly to your frame and that means to hide the disadvantage and enhance the advantage

 

most people have clothing that they should stay away from unless you were born with a decent frame

 

just like @Adrian Beckham I think he would look good in flight jackets because the shoulder part of the flight jacket isn't as boxy

 

I think boxy cut outerwear works way better on slimmer guys

It isn't 'hate' at all. He asked for opinion, if people ask for opinion and everyone just says yeah it is good then what is the point? It doesn't help anyone. Sometimes the truth hurts but it is reality. Like for me i'm too short so I don't wear coats never have never will, proportions will look off and basically i'll look like i'm wearing dads coat, so I accept that. There is nothing personal.

Wow thanks not gonna lie that bought a smile to my face haha. I am not muscular at all I am just cut, because I used to swim a high level for 10 years. I'm around 5'6" 132lbs, so I am short as well I wish I was at least 5'9" I think that is the perfect height.

I'm the same as you! It is okay! Plus their are other shirts too of similar style, you don't need overlong Rick Owens shirt.

Damn you're 5'6? haha cuz it didn't really look like it when I look at your Instagram pictures

 

I think that's a good way to prove my point that I posted up there.

 

If you're on the shorter side, you can dress to look taller.

 

btw i'm also 5'6 haha. How does the slp shirts fit on you? are they too long for you?

Yup indeed! Thank you! People tell me I have long legs, I dunno tho.

 

Definitely true it is all about proportions and illusions, things that should be worn and things that shouldn't be worn. Ah join the 5'6" club! Personally I keep the shoes short so cropped jodhpurs, low top sneakers, sometimes for tops I size down so that it will be a little shorter, sometimes the sleeves will be too short though so doesn't always work.

 

They are long but not too long. Thom Browne shirts are really long though so I always tuck those in. I take a 38 for the SLP button ups, i'm afraid 37 I will not be able to button up the top button.
