Can anyone identify whether this women's shirt I found for sale is legit or not? It's priced very low and the hibscus print looks off to me so I'm assuming it's fake, but I can't find a closeup picture of the women's version of this shirt to compare it to. The seller didn't post a picture of the neck tag.

Blind. In all seriousness, I don't think I've seen such a large tag on a women's garment such as that, usually, there is a medium sized and then a smaller sized tag, the pattern seems wack, the floral thing just happened this season, nothing earlier that I recall, and the collar seems off, plus, the sleeves are way too billowy for most Saint Laurent. It looks like a sweatshop piece; I'd steer clear unless you're really into the seller's nail polish.

Yeah, that's what I figured, but I've not seen much of this shirt so I couldn't tell. I thought it looked like this one from a few years ago but the flower print doesn't have the two-toned red the real one looks like it has. I couldn't tell if the collar just looked weird because of how it was sitting or if the shape was actually off.

Not sure if it's fake or not, as the hibiscus shirt was super low volume production wise and didn't sell too hard either. I remember trying it on and the fit and material seemed really strange. The material itself looks legit from the fourth pic, but I remember it being super itchy and scratchy. It flowed great but felt like shit. The biggest flag to me is the lack of a western yoke and snap buttons, all the shirts I've seen had those two details. Could be a variance between men and womens though. The pattern itself wasn't the same between shirts so that's not necessarily a giveaway.

It seems weird that the seller only included one picture of just one tag. If you wanted to sell your item, wouldn't you also take a picture of the neck tag and the tag with the Saint Laurent name on it? Not saying it's fake, but it's either shady or simply not smart by the seller.

I thought it might be the women's version of the shirt, which has an (I assume removable) bow and lacks the Western details. Too bad about it being uncomfortable though, I really love the hibiscus pattern.

First outing for the SLP peacoat ebay find, it is freezing today, 8 degrees with a wind chill and this is VERY cosy, all I have is a t and a thin sweater on so it is passing that test! Loving wearing it too. Have always liked peacoats for how you feel very smart but not too stuffy as you would an epsom or full DB overcoat.

Hi all, Just wondering if anyone knows what season this piece is from - it's a black-and-white striped baja cardigan hoodie - and whether it's a well regarded/sought after item. I don't know much about the brand but happen to have one of these in size L (bnwt) that I can't really use so planning to sell it. Trying to get a sense of whether that's going to be hard or easy; haven't really seen other listings for it. Thanks!

Hey guys,
Copped my first SLP purchase recently and wanted to do a fit check with the knowledgeable folks on the forum here :)
....
That's very beautiful... Can I ask you more info about the size you choosed and your usual size? I never tried a SLP piece, but this could be in my first order... :) (I'm 113 lb, 5.54 feet, I surely will go with XS but I don't know the fit...)

I got this jacket in a small. Usually I am a small as well but depending on the piece (e.g. sweatshirts, sweaters), I sometimes get a medium too.

For reference, I am around 150lbs and a little over 5'9

I'm basically the same measurements as you (41cm shoulder, 46 p2p, cropped jackets I prefer a back length of 54-56cm) and a 44 was definitely longer and boxier than I'd like. The 40F/42F may fit you well though. I do tend towards slightly cropped jacket though, prefer when they hit around belt line if not higher.

My chelseas arrived today. They shipped on Friday.

They are very nice and I'm glad I went with the 41. No way could I have gone down a size. Half a size would likely have been too small as well. My toes would be shoved into the toebox. From a couple things I've seen on Youtube that are within the last year it seems the Wyatts run true to size now. Based on my experience I concur.

With thin socks I had a bit of heel slip on the left boot and basically none on the right. I had the same experience with my AEs and that decreased with wear. With slightly thicker socks it eliminated the heel slip entirely.

Now to break them in and enjoy them (and to stop eyeing the Jodhpurs. At least for a few months).
i wear 10/43 in high tops Sl10h and johdpur but wyatt i buy 43 1/2 and i never in my life wore 43 1/2 in anything. I guess worst part is it’s harder to find deals since i only really buy on eBay 😂

got some new black suede johdpur 43 for like $400

SL10H high top black / metallic blue for $80 (yes $80 and they are authentic) 😂

also bought some slightly pre owned Wyatt in gray that i ended up dyeing to black for like $200.... long story short I’ve been buying and wearing slp for a dime and a song for years now 💀

Yes, I'd look for XXS (42) if I were you. I am a little bit bigger than you, 5'6" 123-5 pounds, and usually do XS but sometimes even I'll do XXS in SL for certain pieces, usually outerwear.
