Yes, I really do love it. I don’t wear it a lot in the winter as it’s pretty lightweight, but it’s one of my top choices in the spring and summer. I usually just wear it with a tank underneath and black jeans. His summer collection cupro bombers are also incredible and light as a feather, you can wear them in the dead of summer.
Comparatively, they’re reasonably priced retail, and in my opinion worth the investment.
Docs are one of my favorite shoes, both the oxfords and the 1461 boots.
Brooklyn Tailors make a well fitting suit with decent fabrics for around $700 retail, and if you need a suit for like once a year just get H&M and have it tailored.
For an investment or you are wearing suits frequently, my two favorites are Band of Outsiders and Thom Browne. Both can be found on sale or from a reseller for under a grand. Suits are like shoes however, you have to know what works for your body. I love Dior Homme suits but they are cut way too long in the body for me to ever wear. Thom Browne for example fits my proportions perfectly, but can look like a clown suit on someone else. Know and stick with what works for you.
Schott 613 / 618 are about $600 brand new, pretty much the “truest” form of a perfecto you can get. Every once in awhile you can find a Lad Musician perfecto for sale around the same price. For 1k you can get the Undercover perfecto which in my opinion are well worth the money in terms of quality and fit.
You can find used Dior Homme chelsea boots for around $300 on eBay. You can try and find RM Williams on there too as outside of Australia and their NY flagship you can’t really buy them. Also Prada makes a nice chelsea boot, and the Robert Geller x CP boots are great and half the price as SLP.Side note: I should mention that along with what a few other people have said - don’t expect to be blown away by the quality of the SLP chelsea boots. The ones with the side gore and thinner sole feel pretty cheap. The only SLP boots I’ve handled that I would personally recommend are the Wyatt western boot, the harness boots, and the chucka boot. All of those have a superb feel and are very well built.
