2014 3 indicates FW14.
Now if I could just figure out why I can't find pictures of it anywhere online.
Going back in time on Google, all the ones I see have beige wool.

how tall are you and how much do you weigh?
5'7 and 42 kilos, I wish I was taller as I feel that since I'm shorter I don't truly suit the SLP aesthetic.
haha i'm not even 5'7 but holy crap you are hella skinny for 5'7 no wonder you have to buy smallest size denims lol. im 5'6 1/2 almost 5'7 and im about 50 kilos and 27 from this season (FW15) is like TTS for me but anyways I don't think SLP aesthetic means being tall but just skinny.... all runway models are tall because any kind of clothing will look better on taller people, period
so it's okay man we are both short and SLP clothing fits are gonna make our body portions look better body portions > height
42 is pretty crazy, remember what Rick said modern couture is about working out!
That's like 93 pounds. Holy smokes. I'm 5-7 but 155 pounds. I can't imagine ever being 92 pounds.
Srsly tho I am 155 and 6 feet tall everything is relative...
Any place online have the black coated in 27? Ssense only has 28 and larger.
The thing is not many people's knees and ankles would fill the old boots and jeans - I chose a bad term there. But they were closely fitting for a sleek look - like the runway. The ankles on the wyatt's now mean that if you're wearing a D02 then the jeans get pulled forward by the boot which looks shit and breaks the line. And the knees in the raw D02s are ridiculously big so you get massive knee bags that look messy (I'm not the only poster that has noticed this). Compared to the mid-waist, which is still roomy but much closer fitting in the knee, they look terrible. I would love to be able to buy them, but unfortunately it's not happening for me.
I also agree with Prudy - the campaign photography and runway samples are still cut closely, but some of the stuff that's arriving in stores barely resembles it in cut. There's plenty of labels that cater to the non skinny type thing. Also, watering it all down so much for mass consumption will lead to losing what made it cool in the first place.
On the French boots; I also really like them. I have the snap closure in black cracked shiny leather 45 mm and would like to try and track down a double buckle pair too but I don't think they were made in 45 or 60. However what I'm talking about is that there's not even any consistency with the French. The runway styles have got nice sleek ankles and shape (see the snap closure, double buckle, chelsea, etc.), but then they go and release a lazy 45 mm side zip with huge ankles and that doesn't even have the same design as teh runway side zip. Even the SA agreed with me that they looked poor with D02 jeans.
As for the old DH boots, they were made to be worn with cosiderably wider jeans.
As for the arm-holes, I guess it depends on one's build. I'm a fairly normal 154 at 6 feet and M / 48 / 39 fits me true to size. I had problems with the arm holes in some SS13 / AW13 jackets but this season all fits me perfectly. Saint Laurent you are crazy skinny - I imagine the stuff looks amazing on you. One of the SAs at Sloane Street wears a women's 24 which look fantastic on him so you might want to look into the women's jeans.
I hear you but I think you're missing the point a bit. It isn't just about consistency when it comes to the full store collection but diversity. Consistency is only for the runway (and even then as SS16 shows there are quite diverse proportions going on there). SLP do offer 3 denim cuts, not just the D02's, and within those 3 cuts there are various fits going on as well.. low waist, mid waist etc.. same applies to the footwear. I realise it may make online shopping a little confusing but I honestly think that SLP is the type of brand you should really go in-store and feel/try items for yourself before hand.. there is still something for every type of SLP customer so I personally enjoy the broadening of styles/cuts..
Anywhere sell this boot in EUR or GBP?
Trying to keep it under 1000AUD, if I pay in USD its almost 1300AUD..
Not all of us have the luxury of going in and trying it unfortunately. There's no store here in New Zealand, I hate returning stuff it's such a pain.
I definitely agree that there should be diversity offered. I personally love offerings such as the oversized cashmere sweaters from AW13, the older boxy t-shirts, as well as the more fitted sleeker styles of tailoring that I usually buy (I'm not really into the other looser cuts of denim though as I simply look better in the skinny ones). However, I don't really see adding over a full cm on the double to the thighs and knees of the raw black D02 as broadening the styles offered - they are supposed to be the brand's skinny jeans afterall and yet they don't even look like skinny jeans on me anymore unless I size down to a size I can't even breathe in (and I'm not even really skinny). The clothes from SS13 and AW13 actually looked like the ones on the runway, but after that you had to pick through more to find the really good stuff, and when you have a pretty narrow sense of taste it can be frustrating.
Same with classic boots such as the wyatt Chelsea. If they're going to significantly widen the ankle in them then they should at least change the style ID. It seems more like watering down and attempting to cater to everybody rather than trying to offer more diversity.
I'm just glad that this season has been a bit of a return to how things were before.
