    A question with regard to sizing on the SLP boots. I know there are obviously many different models, but what general sizing should I know about before ordering online. I actually live in an area that doesn't allow me to try on any SLP boots at all unless I traveled hours to do so.

    The problem is that I have seen mixed opinions all over the place about the boots. I feel most say they fit "true to size" but I've seen reputable SLP owners in threads like this and others online mention sizing down 0.5 size to potentially a full size. I've heard suede has more give so you could size down a full size on the suede boots. I'm a size 42 in most sneakers but I'm wondering if I should go with a 42 or if a 42 would be a more comfortable fit?

    Not my experience. I can wear up to a 42 in Nike sneakers (and I'm usually between 40-41 in other brands), and I had to size down to 39 for a pair of Jodhpurs. All the SLP boots I've ever tried ran way large.

    And the point is instantly proven, yet again - order the pair you want from someone with a good return policy and don't assume varying styles (and materials within styles) fit the same. If buying used and you don't know the fit of the particular model then ask the seller for the info or buy at your own risk.

    My sizing experiences. Athletic shoes are hard to compare to because the sizing varies so much depending on model.

    Nikes: ~8.5 depending on shoe
    Y3: ~7.5-8.5 depending on shoe
    Margiela GATs (highs and lows): 41
    Pierre Hardy: 41
    Common Projects (achilles): 40
    Common Projects (chelseas): 41 (40 is slightly too tight)
    Raf Simon (astronauts): 40
    balenciaga multimatieres (high): 40
    balenciaga runners: 41
    Lanvin: 7
    YSL combat zip (leather): 41
    YSL SL/01 (leather): 41
    YSL SL/01H (leather): 41
    YSL jodphur low (suede): 40.5
    YSL jodphur high (suede): 40.5
    YSL chelsea (leather): 41
    YSL Wyatt (sidezip leather): 41
    YSL Wyatt (harness leather): 41
    YSL Wyatt (harness suede): 40.5 for older seasons, 41 for current season

    Also, this is my understanding of materials:

    Suede (most flexible) > buffalo (more flexible, used in the silver/gold wyatts this season) > python (lined with calf) > calf (least flexible).

    Not sure where the "cordovan" from the Eli boot this season fits, but I just tried on a 41 and it was uncomfortably tight. Also, pretty sure it actually isn't cordovan.

    I thought he was asking for other people's sizing experience to extrapolate his own size? I figured if I included multiple brands he can get an idea of what to order, just trying to be helpful. Specific models like gats/achilles/ect. are pretty consistent compared to (for example) nike sizing.

    Guys, who are some of the cheaper retailers for SLP denim? Luisa Via Roma, Ssense, etc are all mad expensive. All the others (i.e. Mr Porter) seem to have a really limited range of denim and seem to be mostly slim fit.

    Damn it sucks being in Australia sometimes. One SLP stockist in a city of 4 million + and it's the worst cut on available.

    Slightly off topic, but has anybody bought from Yoox before? I'm considering picking up a shirt from there, but I've just read some negative reviews on Google about being sold fake clothes so I'm not sure

    I've bought from them many times without any issues. Yoox also manages ysl.com

    Picked up the SL 137 Devon sunglasses in black today—the ones that were all over the Palladium show. Tried them on when buying the SL 51 Slim a few weeks back, and initially thought they were slightly too large for my face, but that may have only been in comparison to the 51s. Should have known I'd end up with both.

    I wanted a larger pair, and think these are slightly more unique than the Bold 1, which was my second option. Plus I have the Tom Ford Campbell, which are pretty similar in shape and style to the Bold 1. I guess those will be my next pair lol.

    Another vote for the clear frame S28s with the mirrored frame. I stole the idea from stoptryingtoohard and I enjoy them a lot. Very comfortable, and the mirror effect is spot on.

    Yes, the new forum is so trashy.

    Sorry these were the best I could do, I'm not great with taking selfies or times shots. Hopefully this helps. They are pretty light in color in real life
