Is your Classique 25 similar to this? http://www.farfetch.com/de/shopping/women/item10637226.aspx
Considering getting these.
Anyone have any expeirence on how they fit and how they break in over time?
Also, I typically take a 28, but on the website, it seems they only have a 33 and a 34. Any idea how often they get new sizes and what in-store stock is like compared to online stock?
They fit skinny - not far off as skinny as AW 13 raw jeans through the knee and lower leg, but you need to size down one size from AW 13 size. You'll need to contact a store if you want to get some now, or wait for next season. Really nice jeans - best fit they've done for ages.
Hedi 30 chelsea is probably closer to the classique than the Seville or the London.
Yeah Neon, difference is absurd, especially on bigger garments, if someone ever needs anything hit me up.
How much would a pair of black raw D02's run? They're at $470 retail here in the states
It does look to be similar.
@kieran thanks for the info, appreciate it.
They are 350 eur on the ysl site, so 391 dollars, with shipping to you that's about 17 eur from Italy and 10 eur for me for the proxy service total would be 420 dollars - i guess on small items like jeans isn't so convenient.
With taxes where I live, that would be saving around $100. I may take you up on your proxy offer in the future.
That's probably it. Sizing seems to be changing all over the place at the moment. I used to be pretty much M / 39 / 48 in everything but blazers (in which I'm 48 / 50 depending on whether I'm prepared to only wear it unbuttoned / have a tailor make alterations respectively), but now it's getting so that I'm needing to try everything on to be safe. Several knits and t-shirts this season came up a bit small looking on me in M for example, with necklines and shoulder seams much narrower than previously, and even some of the waists in knits being a bit skimpy looking on me and I have a true 29.5 inch waist which should be technically small enough for M. I guess they're using different fit models or something and they're no longer shaped like me.
All in all though I've had a pretty successful season. I'm hoping to get a classic black two button blazer and a bag to finish the season and I'll be happy.
Couple of fit pics from the last week:
The stained effect fw13 jeans I got in my true size 30 and they are -painfully- tight, literally stuck to my leg and I can forget walking in long strides or up stairs with a large vertical drop... I've tried spraying with water and stretching them out a little and it's worked like a couple %, the rise is pretty low but I'll wear them in winter with flannels/peacoats only where you can't see my exposed ass crack heh.
However in any case ref the discussion the last few pages - for me - the tigher the better, in conjunction with stacks to break up the silhouette - can't imagine wearing the outfits like below cropped.
@ohyehhh Looks great man. How tall are you? Do you alter the length at all? I'm going to take your advice on the black/white shirt - but I'll grab it if it manages to make its way into the sale.
Red Nashville is my favorite, I wear it all the time like your pic with my AW14 black destroyeds and suede jodhpur/wyatts. If those AW13 stains piss you off, give me a call ...
Btw, does anybody know what the discernible difference is between the two black+off-white striped teddy jackets are?
Jacket 1: 93% VIRGIN WOOL, 7% POLYAMIDE - STYLE ID: 354718Y983H1000
Jacket 2: 88% WOOL, 10% POLYAMIDE, 2% SILK - STYLE ID 354718Y983J1000
Like.. the picture is exactly the same, does anybody know the different beyond the composition? Like was one the substantially lighter weight summer version vs the bulkier feeling autumn/winter one?
@therattler hah thanks man, I'm 5"10 - the SLP default length seems "just right" for me as it so luckily no alteration needed. Agree re. the nashville I love it! I too will be dusting off the wyatts soon wyatt+black distressed/destroyed + nashville
I'm considering getting a pair of jeans, I might hit you up later.
god damn i love that red L01. i should have totally got one by now. it's funny, the black jeans never fit me as well as the blue ones, both raw and washed. great looks ohyehh.
i believe the varsity with the lower wool content is the summer version.
