    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I went for a walk in my cigar jodhpurs and I caught no less than 3 girls staring at them.

    I wonder if it's because they are still pristine and they stand out (they're two weeks old and worn for a few hours only), because they think "oh those are beautiful, I'd like a pair for myself" or "why is this dude wearing womens boots" (my gf says they look like womens boots).

    Yeah, Hedi really makes slimmer versions of typically chunky boots. I really like the moto boots with their slim shafts because you can wear skinny jeans over them. Your crepe sole boots look good on you!

    agree. I feel that way too thats why i just prefer sneakers when i dont want weird looks from people... Dont criticize me... Its true. There is nothing so standout about cigar jodhs they just look like many women boots made by topshop... I own a pair myself so no hate on jodhs but its true. Unless you have velvet wyatt like @OakGhost they are not something that standout(other than being looked at as women boots)

    I live in NY, 2 hours north of NYC and I have no issues walking in the snow with my Bottegas.

    im not sure why you would want to wear crepe soles in the snow unless you have no other choice.

    Cause they cost a lot of money to only wear them 4 months out of the year. Same reason why I wear SLP jeans and flannels during the summer.

    weird looks? lol.

    3cm/4cm heels don't look like womens boots to me nor to my gf, nor to any other girls i know, guess it depends on social circles or city. (i'm in london).

    girls (but mostly guys, oddly) DO take notice of the jodhpurs IME.

    I dont think they are available anymore, these were from 15fw i think, thats when i got mine in the same colour as bignas15. The current ones are darker.

    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if this is the right place, but I'll try anyway:

    Is this a legit tag to a 2016 classic L01 jacket? It just looks off to me, but I actually haven't seen a tag with 2016 on it yet, so maybe it's real.

    Thanks

    That's a shame! I think that colour looks so much better than the darker current ones!

    Looks fine, jeans maybe too slim or just weird angle. YMMV.

    All the items in your outfit fit nicely together and comfortable on the eye. Band tee, distressed sneakers, leather jacket, black skinny jeans. You would be veering more towards what Hedi takes inspiration from than what he presents on the runway. You'll fit right in with the people in his photo diary!

    for those asking about jodhpurs -

    left: ss16 jodhpurs (and I also saw these late fw15) - tonal stitching, aged buckle, lowered strap/loop (so jeans hit/sit above/on it)
    right - ss15 (and fw14 in 4cm version..?) - white stitching, gold tone buckle, higher strap/loop (so jeans end up covering some of the detail).

    both are nice colours, the difference in real life is quite subtle, the layman would have to squint/think that the colours are any different. i like the ss16 cos the suede is more 'nappy', probably describing it wrong but if you brush your fingers up/down against the grain it leaves a noticeable colour difference (which i like in suede ha, make patterns in your shoes :)), with the ss15 it's not that obvious.

    i prefer the higher buckle on the ss15, even though it meant you lost some of the detail and/or would only get a subtle peek if your jeans rose, kinda feels less 'designed' in the hedi spirit of things.


    when sunlight hits both colours, the colour looks gorgeous, especially with all black outfits

    In terms of evaluating the boot just as a standalone item, I feel the original higher buckle placement makes the boot look better.
