Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2821

Fit aside, I think the jacket is kind of boring and you could probably buy something better.

Thanks for the input fellas! Was my intended goal for this jacket to be simple but fitted, just needed something that could cross between casual and formal, could potentially wear this in autumn over dress shirts to work, prior to the weather getting colder and requiring an overcoat.

^ Make sense for those purposes. I think a less snug fit might be more interesting though. Barbour Liddesdale is kind of an old stand by. Maybe not the most exciting suggestion, but still a solid choice, IMO. Mackintosh also makes something they call their Waverly jacket. I have one and like it. The sort of thing you can wear with dress pants or jeans.

At the very least, a less snug fit would allow you to layer in some more interesting knitwear, which would give you more options for how to wear the coat.

I want a pair of suede jodhpurs. Yeah I hate to admit it but it's all SLP/Hedi's fault, even though is a brand I don't like as a whole (or any "luxury" designer stuff, for that matter, I feel I'm simply not the target customer) but love, love some of their boots (maybe the leather jackets too, but I'm happy with other alternatives).

 

So to me design of their jodhpurs is perfect, I mean, they remind me of a beautiful car, say a Jaguar E-Type:

 

 

On the other hand, there's the Story et Fall jodhpurs.

 

 

The design of the SLP is clearly superior, and there's a couple of design "defects" I find in the SeF ones: first of all, I don't like how they sit flat, it just looks weird. And second, people complain about a "folding effect" that causes your socks to be seen in certain circumstances. Also many guys seem to get rid of theirs pretty quickly. Some say that they're kind of bulky compared to SLP but that doesn't really put me off (perhaps they look more masculine that way? My GF says suede jodhpurs look quite feminine).

 

On the other hand, even though I have boots more expensive than the SLP ones (very different styles, though), it bothers me paying 625 pounds for a blake stitched pair of boots with a fake welt (when the design perfectly allows for an actual welt, unlike the cropped jodhpurs). The SeF are goodyear welted and like 2.5x cheaper, including customs duties. And the suede is apparently quite nice (sourced from England and according to some reviews nicer than, say, Meermin which are similarly priced and also considered a good value). Also I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull off this style so the SLP ones could be an expensive mistake, although resale value is pretty good I'd say.

Get the SLP. They're my most comfortable and worn boots.

How did you size? I'm usually a 41 (a US8, I think?).

I found the suede ones from last year to run big. I sized down.

The suede is really nice on my SeF cropped jodhpurs and has held up well under a lot of abuse (rain, mud, clubs, vomit, the works). Not saying that as an endorsement, just backing up what you've read

@MickeyPunch I think go with the SLP if that's what inspires you. The SeF may be perfectly nice but I wouldn't buy an approximation if I could help it.
post #42311 of 42796
IMO, the biggest difference is the shape of the last. SLPs have a much pointier toe, and unless SeF has changed their design in the last year or so, I think theirs is much more rounded.

I like the round toe design better, personally.

Why not Buttero? They feel a lot more "solid" than the SLP ones to me

post #42313 of 42796
get the SLP. usually when you end up settling you end up buying the more expensive version you really wanted anyways.

I like the Butteros over the SLPs.
