    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Heads up. Studded sneaks final price drop. See my sig. Gotta make some quick cash.

    Hope I'm not breaking any rules. Thanks.

    What's everyone's experiences like at the SLP boutiques? I have had great experiences in midtown Manhattan and other locations (KOP, LA and Paris), however, in their SoHo the sales persons are always clustered chatting and not seemingly interested in selling clothes. Really weird vibe. Maybe just a one-off thing.

    Midtown store, I concur, was a great experience. Got taken care of personally by the SA I had spoken to on the phone several times. Got brought into the tailoring area (was having a jacket taken in) and shown the new AW stuff that had just come in. Great vibe. Great people. Great stuff that was brought out to me and shown what was on sale.

    The SoHo place was awful. Granted, I was running late and in a rush, but I asked what was on sale and they gave me a vague answer. They had hardly any stock of anything to begin with.

    I don't know. I wouldn't have made a fuss or anything but seeing you asked I'd have to say it wasn't just a one-off thing.

    Interesting note. Exactly my same experience at the Midtown store. I recommend a SA Donald there who is fabulous.

    The Greene street store was really bad, the Midtown store was okay, but the L.A. store is a fantastic experience.

    I've had identical experience as you with in midtown manhattan, costa mesta, and soho. Soho is the worst. You might get one of the associates attention if you stand there long enough while staring at them. Everywhere else I've been, the staff has been awesome. Def not a one-off thing.

    side note - extremely disappointed in this season's denim. the D02s are much bigger than previous seasons. even the associate who was helping me said the same thing. i wish they would stay more consistent with their measurements. the destroyed denim came out horrible in both black and blue.

    Midtown - Great. Helpful
    London - Great. That British charm.
    Paris (Avenue Montaigne) - didn't know their shit/no greeting.
    Paris (Rue de Faubourg) - extremely helpful and polite.

    The most inconsistent is definitely SoHo. Anybody catch that young blonde girl, early 20s? Always looks miserable. There are some helpful associates there. You can kind of just tell by the way they look at you how helpful they'll be.

    ^ Staff in all of the London stores are excellent. I've had multiple items transferred for me (including inexpensive items, and on one occasion more than one size in one item for me to choose between), they are always friendly and give good advice, they know the collections pretty well, and tolerate my terrible indecisiveness. Some also wear the clothes very well, which can be great for getting ideas of how to wear certain pieces.

    I also have to say that my experience with customer service with the online store has been excellent too. The lady that deals with customer service enquiries is always pleasant to deal with, and couldn't do enough to help when UPS lost a pair of boots from one of my orders that was re-wrapped at one of their depots.

    I don't have experience with stores in any other areas, other than briefly browsing one of the stores in Tokyo which was also a pretty positive experience.

    I actually just wanna rep the L.A. store for a second. Not only do they literally have the most stock of any SLP store in the world, but every S.A. is not only super great as a person, but totally knows and loves the brand, and actually live the SLP lifestyle. Half the fun of going to the L.A. store is seeing what the S.A.s are wearing that day.

    Black turned out pretty cool (nicer than sample photos). Blue - not so much.

    I agree too. I would have get one if it doesn't have those paint/paint effect on the jeans. I somehow feel that the color of those paint does not match with the denim itself (well just an opinion). I've bought the 15.5 black jeans in 13AW with 1 side of the knee ripped, it has the same paint effect as this black destroyed denim. I just feel that may be the jeans would look better to me without those paint.
