• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

@nekromantik No sorry but try googling the style code on the item it should come up with the same piece if it's authentic. Usually a quick way of spotting fakes is that the N and the T in Saint Laurent won't be touching (on the care tag and label tag) whereas on authentic pieces they will, however some fakes do copy this. Best bet is to post it on here as people here are pretty good at spotting fakes and of course if the SLP store can help then that's also a good option.

The John Elliot x Blackmeans belted leather biker jacket is pretty sick. The center zip cafe/trucker style Blackmeans jacket is up there among my favorites from them as well.

Lampo zippers are probably my favorite zippers, I have only seen them on John Varvatos pieces. Riri are great and make that distinctive sound but they dont quite glide like Lampo's or YKK. SLP uses relabeled YKK right?

I agree w/ the JE Blackmeans jacket... I just sold mine as I didn’t feel I could pull off the belted look but the quality is definitely there. Balmain has used Lampo too...

Old Dior Homme used Lampo along with Burberry Prorsum along with Balmain. Lampo zips are the best followed by riri

Anyone have any suggestion on SLP suiting sizing? I am getting married in October and was considering buying a Le Smoking set. Figure I could get use out of the blazer after the wedding. I am typically a slim tailored 42L in american sizing. Any insight from anyone on here who owns a hedi/slp suit would be awesome.

Side note*
Anyone selling python santiags/wyatts in 43? While I am at it lol.
I have the 2016 python devons but they just don't do it for me.

You have to go in store and go through their fitting process, you can't just buy it online imo.
Their customer experience is usually top notch, I believe you can also schedule an appointment.

Hey Guys,

I bought some leather conditioner which also gets rid of scratches for my car seats. What do you think would happen if I were to use it on my distressed L01. Would it basically look like a normal calf skin Motojacket?
