    I don't know if the sizing is all that different from variant to variant, honestly. I got several pairs and they are all in the same size, one is buffalo, one calf, one suede and one camel. I think the materials/stiffness varies but once you work them in they all fit TTS. Some feel better on right out of the gate, for sure...

    @scanner nice is that the black/grey rayon T? If so I have that one, it's great.

    Thanks Prudy, It's 75% Viscose / 25% Polyester but feels very nice and holds up pretty well after a night of concert hopping / etc. Maybe its the same one you have? It's SS15. The one I really liked was the more expensive linen shirt with grey ribbed neck, but glad I got this one as it doesnt seem to have been picked up by many retailers. The only thing I'm not fond of is the fit. It looks cool with something over it, but not liking how it looks on its own. Very much looking forward to the upcoming season shirts as the cuts look like they've been handled better.

    Oh also.. what are you guys' thoughts on the silver jodhpurs? I'm worried about scratches.. once they are scratched is there anything you can do about it?

    Once an egg is cooked, can you un-cook it?

    In case it's really nylon and you have a steady hand you can try to gently burn the fringes with a lighter and blow out the flame. But it's very risky and depends on which material (fireproof PA?) is used. I would advise to test it on a single thread. If it's working you can go on thread by thread...

    You insisted on advice, don't blame me if it gets worse ;)

    Another idea is to search for a textile service...it's possible to glue PA with formic acid or sew on a new leather loop.
    Can't understand why the nylon as well as the leather versions of the SLP backpacks have those ordinary loops...

    Thanks for the help. I also was curious as to whether melting the fibers would work... If I mess it up don't worry I won't blame ya hahah

    and yea for an 800 or so dollar canvas backpack... you would hope for leather tab and straps, not just trim..

    I'm told all of the news men's stuff is launching on Monday 22nd, with 500 pieces due in stores. I saw some of it yesterday, all of it looks great.

    But now I'm torn, I want to grab a pair of black santiags from some of the sales, but maybe I should save some dough for the new collection ...

    That's a hard one, the black harness santiags are perfect boots, IMO...especially since you can remove the harness if desired.

    Looking forward to seeing the new collection, I'll be in Paris next weekend...

    Hi Everyone,

    I've been lurking this thread a while and decided to sign up (selfishly) because I need some advice.
    I'm going to try and snag a pair of those black raw/frayed hem jeans while there are still some left but I was wondering are there more than one model/fit of those? I'll probably buy online so can't try them. I need these to complete my silver santiags! Cheers and sorry about another denim question :(

    I've been sent a 20% off anything (including sale items) code from matchesfashion in an attempt to lure me to spend money with them again, valid until Monday.

    So if anybody is in London only and wanted something in particular let me know... they've even got some new season stuff in the past few days:

    i tried quite a bit of new season stuff and the fits are indeed quite a bit slimmer. i'm not sure how much i'll grab versus permanent collection stuff, but it's a great, great collection.

    as for santiags, they're going super cheap at the moment, and they're pretty useful shoes to beat up. :)

    Did you try on any of the destroyed denim at all? Curious as to how the rips sit when worn. Also do the cracked leather 85 boots look as stunning in person as they do online? Haha

    the cracked leather actually looks better in person, it's pretty intense. hard to describe. the rips on the destroyeds are going to sit funny if you're short, but whether that bugs you is your own deal.
