    All depends on what you ask the cobbler to do.

    Yes all cobblers will sand the sole of the shoe before sticking a half sole on so the glue has something to grip too. A lot of cobblers will tell you just to wear them a few times to break them in and remove the top layer anyway.

    Does anyone have any experience with adding insoles to SLP boots? I would love it if my jodhpurs fit a half size smaller.

    yea i use insoles in my jodhs.... but whats the big deal to ask in the forum? just buy an insole put it in and try it on, if you don't like the fit just take it off. simple as that.

    I noticed the leather on my current pair of white lows is beginning to crack whereas the pair I've owned since the first season doesn't have any. I don't know if it's a defective pair I have, but thought I'd share anyway.

    Remember people were talking about Acne jeans a few pages back so figured I'd share my experience. I was in the Acne Archive outlet store today and tried some Ace "eighties black" washed jeans. Ended up going two sizes down from my D02 size, because they didn't have the next size down. These were 95% cotton, 4% elastane and 1% polyester. They're still not quite as tight through the leg as my D02s, especially my FW15 midwaist raws, but they're still pretty tight. Nice denim too, and made in Italy. I'd still go for the SLP, given the choice, but these aren't a bad option either.

    I got them primarily because I couldn't find the gray washed D02s, and I got a really great deal on them.

    suedes look great though.

    My acne aces just don't fit me right compared to d02s, I think they are too loose in the thigh and then taper too much compared to sl.

    I've been doing only black for a while but just took the plunge on 3 blue washes and 1 pair of white denim from this season.

    I thought this might be relevant to people in the US. Obama recently signed a law that increased the amount that people can import in a given day without paying a customs fee from $200 to $800 as of 3/10/16. What is funny is that the $200 limit had not changed since the Tariff Act of 1930. The United States prices for many Saint Laurent items are 30% greater than they are in Europe because the price difference is based upon the 2013 dollar:euro conversion rate. I think this is the reason why Matchesfashion lowered the prices of many of its goods for US customers.

    Heh. Literally nobody ever made torn/ripped jeans look anything more than--if we're being charitable--"hobo chic."

    I can see that. I think I may have gotten lucky with these. I don't have a ton of experience with Acne otherwise, but this pair fits me better than any other Acne pair I've tried. Maybe because I sized down considerably. I'll be sticking with SL regardless, but it's nice to have some washed gray denim in the rotation.
