    Anybody have any experience buying from matchesfashion.com, and how long shipping to the U.S. takes

    Id hazard a guess its after Dior's Luster show from Hedi. If not a good coincidence.

    Tried the black calf Devon Chelsea this afternoon that I got from the online store. I'm very happy with these and I think I'll probably buy a second pair too. A nice and dressy, albeit basic, pointy boot, something I've been waiting on for a long time. Tried them with my usual of black raw jeans and black knit, and also with a white shirt and 2 button black 69 cm blazer and they looked really nice with both. I'm very tempted to go with the python side zips as well now, although I would have preferred the lizard which I thought looked amazing on the runway.

    Sizing wise, I went with my usual 45 and they're pretty snug in the toes and I have narrow feet - some people may prefer to go up 1/2 a size, but I can only go a full size to 46 which would be far too big. Ankles are reasonably small, but I still get a good gap between my ankle and the boot at the front - not a big problem but I would have preferred them to be slimmer. It certainly won't be possible to achieve the look where there's a gap between the boot and the jeans when wearing cropped jeans that I love, like in the look book (see below), and on the runway. Still very happy though.

    Great place to order! I would assume it depends on where you live, but it takes 2-3 business days to get to my home in NY.

    Thanks!

    Sad to see they aren't brown like the Lizard Santiags were, but still looking sharp.

    Matchesfashion is indeed a great online store. Purchased many times there. Their packaging is as nice as mrporter. They have a bit less choice in items and sizes but that's because they havs both men and women's wear. Mrporter split genders into 2 websites.

    Cool thing about them is that they have stuff you usually find in no other website + when something is sold out, they still display it (in case you want to flip through the pictures), unlike mrporter.

    Plus their purchasing manager is a super cute girl.
    She's not single though ;)

    I, too, love buying from matches.

    Has anyone seen the lizard derbies from the runway show in store yet?

    In Europe at least, only the patent Derby was bought for stores from the low shoes. Seems a very strange choice. I mean I like the patent but they really should have ordered some of the other variations (I'd like a plain calf pair, hopefully they'll pop up somewhere else).

    there was an interview or something with Hedi saying he used to give them the boots to wear for a while before the shows so they didnt look brand new (on the runway)
    dunno if they did that on later seasons or just 'distressed' them

    Good info, thanks! I was wondering where do you find these lookbook photos online? I really love that look in particular.

    Just ordered these in size 32 off matches fashion for $240, I thought that was a pretty good deal. I'm pumped to have them come in and see how they fit, the SLP 34s in blue trash I tried on were too big so I opted for a 32 in these. I can't get over how stretchy the denim I tried on is it's incredible.

    Next on my list to cop is black raw hems and some SL 06 court classic suede low tops.

    went to check out anything new today. they only had the leopard print t, and the new grey flannel shirt. didn't have time to try anything on. but the flannel is super thick. definitely winter wear, no jacket necessary.

    also, another new video up on instagram. still lame. but there appears to be a pair of leather pants, and a very similar jodhpur boot for ladies. another rumor from a friend who has seen some photos of the first vacarello collection, is that it is 'so similar' that he couldn't tell it wasn't hedi. I refuse to believe it.

    Tried on the black calf devon today, definitely beautiful shoes but I'm not quite sure if I'll be able to wear those with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt like all the pc boots. Didn't end up getting them at the end but I might one day if they're still available

    why not man? they don't seem that different - plus they were worn with jeans in 95% of the runway looks. they'll definitely be too slim for a lot of people's proportions etc. was that it?
