    Do you guys ever dry clean your jeans? Also, how do you guys generally wash your expensive t-shirts?

    For shirts get a bucket of cold water chuck shirt in gently spot clean with hands any dirty spots then hang to dry don't wring scared to ruin delecate fabric like silk so you gotta hang it vertically so the wtaer doesnt pull down the shirt.

    @SirGrotius thanks man, I am loving wearing it as it is so different than usual for me as well. I feel like I am now style-sponsored by Ennio Morricone.

    @slann01 They didn't have the officer jacket (sold out) but I tried on a lot of other SS15 items (suede jackets, military coat w/ tail, suit jacket w/ python lapels, etc.) and my general take is that the majority of items are fitted. IME the only oversized items so far have been some of the tunics (beautiful in person) and the field jackets/parkas and jean jackets. I can't say for certain on that specific piece you are looking at but if the other jackets are an indication of fit overall most everything was definitely fitted as we like it.


    RE: washing/dry cleaning denim...

    Throw 'em in the wash at home on cold, hang dry. That's all.

    Thanks for the great description Prudy - as always. Where do you come from? Your SLP boutique seems to have always a lot of garments, while the one here in Rome has always a little selection of menswear :(

    fuck that. I hate paying big bucks for a T-shirt, but whenever I do I treat them like any other piece of clothing. Throw them in the wash, delicates cycle with cold water. I already spent a lot of money on it, not going to take time out of my day to further inconvenience myself with it.

    No problem! And BTW I did get a chance to try the officer's jacket with the embroidered collar/sleeves today and it was TTS and fitted as expected.

    I am in Luxembourg but get to London/Paris every 2-3 months. Outside of LA, London and Paris have the most selection of all the cities as I understand it.

    I was in the King of Prussia boutique outside of Philadelphia, and they have that t-shirt in XS. Most comfortable shirt ever award. It fits trim, as I'm in a muscle phase (for me) @ 130, and definitely had the buff look going with it. It'd probably drape better with a thinner frame at that size.

    I was thinking the same thing... unless puke or say... bodily fluid from a uhh stripper or something. It's been at least 7 years since I've washed any of my denim.
