    Only do it if the tailor was recommended by a boutique. And even then, give it time so that the sleeves come up a bit naturally etc.

    Calf is more difficult to work with. In some cases may require different equipment.

    sorry misread that

    i know different machines but for the thickness of leather i think this guy is having him on

    for a decent machinist (and type of leather - we know which brand it is) it'd be the same

    Way too expensive. The Saint Laurent tailor would charge $250 for this. Max.

    There's not really "Saint Laurent tailors" for most customers.

    During SS13 - FW14, some SL boutiques had an in-house tailor (Not the cobbler down the road or the local tailor), but actual YSL atelier trained tailors that Hedi had brought in temporarily to do denim and RTW alterations.

    Off topic, Did anyone else get their pre-order from Barneys cancelled on the Jeans with leather studded rips?

    Wyatt boots are back on ysl.com, was wondering which is closer to the FW13 version; the nut suede or the cigar suede ver?

    No worries.

    As to your question, it could be a multitude of factors. You're assuming that since nut is more similar to the FW13 ochre suede, it is more desirable. Though this may be true in niche groups such as those among these forums, it might not be the case for the average SLP consumer.

    The difference in stock could be due to a multitude of factors. It may be that the nut suede was more recently re-stocked. Or it may be that the cigar suede is simply more popular (which I doubt since I see this colorway on sale more often than nut, which rarely goes on sale).

    That's a good point.

    I noticed that the nut suede disclaimer that it need to be downsized 0.5 from the usual size compared to others. Do you know anything bout this?

    Depends on your foot width in my opinion. Generally, .5 size down sounds like good advice, unless you have very wide feet. I wear a 42 in nut suede Wyatts, Common Project Achilles, and Common Projects Chelseas if that's helpful.

    I think that advice was more applicable to previous seasons. In my experience, since the shaft was slimmed back down in SS16, it can be hard to get the boots on while sizing down. It certainly put a lot of stress on the zipper whenI originally sized down, so I ended up going TTS.

    It looks like there's new lighter colour for the cropped jodhpurs too. If they're close to the original beige from SS 13 - 14, and if they have the shiny gold hardware rather than the crappy aged buckle, then I think I'll probably grab some.

    nah i've been watching them on ysl and the cigar suede just sold out and the nut suede didn't. no restock.
    i like the nut suede i just prefer the smooth cigar suede more.

    and the reason cigar suede goes on sale is cause they produce more of the cigar suede by far.
    every website has the cigar suede as for the nut suede there only seem to be a couple
