    Thanks guys :) makes the price easier to swallow [​IMG] I agree SirGrotius it's a tad longer but the way I rationalised it to myself is I'd half get the look of the oversized flannel for free heheh.

    kevineg6 - the jodphurs are exact same colour as the SS15 iteration - 'cigare'.

    The most accurate representation of the colour being on the official website (bear in mind this links to SS15 with white stitching and gold coloured buckle):

    http://www.ysl.com/gb/shop-product/...odhpur-boot-in-cigar-suede_cod44764572pg.html

    With the less accurate representations that makes it look darker/more ocher coloured elsewhere:

    Hey guys,
    Recently purchased the FW15 waxed creased low waisted jeans. To my surprise, I fit size 30. Usually I wear 31-32 in SL Skinny. There's plenty of stretch in the fabric & its very lightweight.

    How do you clean/wash your waxed/coated denim?

    Handwash in the sink with cold water. I heard that other people wash them reversed in the washer, but i never had the courage to do that.
    Today I put a fit with my fw14 teddy blazer - i think it would have looked better with the creepers but they were at the cobbler so i chose the wyatts instead:

    Ahaha man i needed to search what that word meant, sorry for the strange face but i wasn't making that up lol, it's my normal expression.
    Thanks man - you are speaking of the green one with velvet inserts at the end of the sleeves or my exact one but with green tartan plaid? never seen that version around
    Thanks for the compliments man :) As for the jacket, i think the fit is perfect, as it is tagged as a size 42(!) but fits oversized and my shoulders are exactly in the same place of other blazers i own. On the other side, the length of the sleeves is definitely too much but that's just because i'm pretty short, still on the fence about tailoring them to be a bit shorter.

    Are you sure its EU42 (XXS)? Because I think Saint Laurent doesnt make smaller than 44 =/ I might be wrong though. The sides look fine, but I think you should defo shorten the sleeves. The length of the blazer is also a tad too long :p SLP is all about that crop, crop, crop :p

    Yes, saint laurent makes some garments in 42, like some leather jackets and sometimes oversized items like this blazer. As for the lenght, it is intended to be longer than a normal blazer to achieve the teddy boy look from the end of the 50's: https://cdna.lystit.com/photos/73de...et-product-1-20563081-4-471274668-normal.jpeg
    and here's the other that was probably mentioned by https://cdnb.lystit.com/photos/6cf1...1-21914258-4-161352713-normal_large_flex.jpeg@Prudy
