    If i have two boots both jodhpurs the suede and black leather one, what is another essential boot i need? Chelsea? I'm thinking of the black suede ones

    How do the Chelseas fit compared to Jodhpur? I wear 42 for Jodhpur is it the same?

    Thanks

    Hope I don't get murdered for liking something from the new collection [​IMG] but I really like the Wyatt 40 side-zips.

    But why did they have to go with goat leather, instead of calf or shell cordovan or something more premium? Can anyone tell me how Saint Laurent's goat leather feels, wears and creases compared to their other offerings. Also what's with the "metallic leather"? I don't see any shiny qualities to it [​IMG]

    why are you cribbing about it if you dont know what it is (could be more expensive for all you know)?

    Black suede is underrated.
    Same size as jodhpurs.

    ...and why did they change the metal zippers to cheap YKK plastic zippers? No-go for me! [​IMG]

    What are your experiences with shipping items between boutiques? Particularly across europe... is this even possible? I've read that quite a few people have done this before, although only within the country. My local boutique only offers women's accessoires and the SA obviously had no idea and no experience with my request, leaving me with a 'she'll see what she can do'...

    if its an accessories boutique only, you'll be out of luck.
    it would have to be a store carrying the full line.

    if you are a good or vip client your SA will be able to source most everything for you. without you even being commited to buy.

    usually the SA request the items for the buyer for the region.

    for example, there was no blood luster L17 allocated to the boutique I buy from....I asked for it and they got it in for me.

    my experience is that they will really go out of their way to provide you with the best service.

    I see you are from hamburg. you would have to order from the berlin store. you can do that by phone and you transfer the funds and they send you anything you want.

    Tried both versions of L01 at SLP store and finally bought the calf one. First 3 pictures are calf, last 2 lamb. I love the vintage effect (aged leather) of calf version and also L01 in calf is very rare, but the leather is very hard and strong and I am not comfortable, especially when I try to up my arms. However, the fit is really amazing. I don't know if exchange with lamb version or keep the calf. The fit in the new lamb version is about the same (very skinny) but the leather more soft so much more comfortable. I always wear 44 in SLP leathers cause I am very skinny. What are your opinions and what model you [ATTACHMENT=14287][ATTACHMENT=14288][ATTACHMENT=14289][ATTACHMENT=14290][ATTACHMENT=14291]IMG_2524.JPG (1,665k.

    Thanks, that helps a lot. I've bought from the Berlin boutique before since it's the only store around here offering men's collections and they usually offer great service. Will give it a shot!

    I have the L01 in size 44 in calf leather and think it's great, and it's comfortable enough for me (I am 5'6", 128 lbs though). It has a bit of a rugged look without being contrived, like some pre-distressed versions of the jacket. I briefly tried one in lamb leather in the store (albeit in 46) and personally prefer the calf. Another thing that I really like about the calf leather is its durability. Especially given the cost of the item and the fact that it is unknown what its future will be with a new creative director, I thought that the calf leather would serve me better in the long-term.

    I prefer the L01 in the classic juicy buttery lambs leather. To me L01 looks classy anyway so I prefer it to not look rugged, whereas I could be swayed the other way with an L17. I don't know about newer calf L17's but the FW13 was way too structured/rugged for my liking.

    Why do you care if the calf is a rarer iteration? I wouldn't let that sway me (different for boots).

    I noticed you posted pics on FB asking what version Hedi was wearing... probably lamb since I think calf is only new to this season/last season.

    The calf I would guess (get confirmation) loosen up with time so if it's tight now it'll be more comfortable later. Fit looks good with it. Personally I'd sacrifice a certain level of personal comfort if it looks better and you don't look like you're uncomfortable in it. I'm never going to stretching my arms that much in leathers and I'm careful not to flex too much in my jackets (i.e. go handsfree instread of holding phone to ear) only cos I'd rather not stretch the elbows out unnecessarily.
