Oh no, that's tough! What a great jacket and overall combo. I love the high armholes and cut of the sleeves, in particular. If you can't get rid of the stench, George Torpe in Manhattan is the man.
I'd love to visit the Manhattan store..except i'm in Australia lol

Lol I'm always scared of that happening to me at the club and its why I only wear leather Wyatts there instead of suede. Getting jean stains aren`t too bad since the stains come off rather easily with the laundress. But shirts and the wool jacket can be annoying.
Funnily enough i never wear my leather footwear i always wear the black suede cause it hides well, the brown ones don't though my brown ones are ruined. My black suedes have held up so well, so many big nights and casual nights in clubs.

I was out in a club with my friends wearing Le Smoking jacket, FW15 Polka Dot button up, and FW15 MIJ D02 (any plain black MIJ D02 are at this point grail right?) my friend came up beside me and like an idiot i blindly waved my hand to give him a bro hug (you know when you're drunk and everybody is your best friend ever?) and of course i knocked his drink out of his hand in a way that the entire contents of his basically full cup went ALL over my jacket and jeans and boots and a bit on my shirt.

Rather embarrassingly (for me) the staff member had to come out with a mop to clean it all.

My jacket REEKED of gin the next day.
gives it character- basically all my clothes have ash, booze, or other bodily fluids on it

clothes without wear are boring

Agreed, but I think you have to make a distinction between jeans and nice blazers.

I just looked it over. In line with my general pessimism, I'll start with what I didn't like.

I think those parachute pants, or whatever they're called, are what's going to eventually get Vaccarello fired, because no one is going to buy those. People who are into that look already have a few brands they can look at, and we don't need the house of Yves Saint Laurent going down that road. The sandals, also, killed me. I feel like one of the workers there needs to take Vaccarello aside and firmly tell him "no more sandals. Sandals are unacceptable." Although I can appreciate that he was going for some North African vibe with those shirts and tunics (not sure what they're called), they're not my thing, and probably not the thing of those who are still active in this thread. I don't know whose thing they are.

As to what I liked, I'll start with the jorts, although this is more because I know that SirGrotius was drooling over them. I"m very happy that we're getting more colors in the looks, and I definitely need to see those red boots in more detail. I'm not sure I liked the white suits, but nevertheless it's cool to see some non-black in these looks. Also, I'm pretty sure that Vaccarello is bringing me around to liking hats, and I'm really thinking of trying out one of the ones up for pre-order on the ysl site. Even though on first looking through the pics, none of the overall looks really moved me, I can definitely see individual pieces in there that I would buy, which after the disturbing pre-fall look presentation photos, is leading me to think that I'm still with Vacarello.
I wasn’t too big on SS20 either - hell I think it may be my least favorite menswear showing from Vaccarello since he took the helm as CD at the house. The Moroccan vibes were cool, yes, but all the over-the-top gender-bending attire really didn’t speak to my sensibilities. It was more feminine than it was challenging or sexy. The show was pretty monochromatic (surprise surprise), but while I feel as if we finally got a full dose of Vaccarello for SL’s menswear I’m not sure I like it.

I haven't had the guts to take another look at it.

Random question I though interesting to ask. On your L17 leather jackets, do you guys wear it with the long tassels in the back on or off?

My l17 does not have them. They are removable?
Yes they are removable on mine. I guess I’ll just take them off then, they look a bit odd in my opinion. I’m not sure what year or season it is, I bought it off a guy on Grailed. Does anyone know why some versions have tassels and others don’t? I see some on google have them while others do not. My guess would be a variance in SS and FW models maybe?

I love the tassles on the 17, that and the vertical zip are the best parts about it

you can just buy some leather cord and add it yourself- I did something similar to my conchos denim. They had the fringe removed when I bought them and I just re-added them. Before and after pics for anybody curious.

You pull them conches off well; always like them but wasn't sure what they would look like on.
