This same logic is why I won't bother with the SLP bikers even though I've been offered them at 50% off on more than 1 occasion.
But at the end of the day, different strokes for different strokes and I won't judge.
I kind of have to disagree with this, maybe more on the case of the bikers and less on the giraffe print.
The bikers are still just all black and it isn't the most outrageous or loud piece of clothing in SLPs line-up. From far away, you see the jeans and you just notice there are zippers and kind of something different with them and then you come up close and you just see a nicely detailed pair of jeans. It is the stand out piece for sure and you just got to go simple with your tee, shirts, jackets and shoes you wear with it and it'll be just fine.
And really if you keep buying SLP for the next 5-10 years, those jeans will be relevant in your wardrobe. Many designers aren't going to stray away too much with their vision and style and hedi is one of them, SLP is almost a continuation of Hedis run from Dior and that was the main complaint about his first comeback show. You can wear Rick Owens of today to Rick Owens from 10 years ago, same with Margiela, Raf, Jil, etc...
If I am being honest, if SLP stops making/selling those bikers today, 5-7 years from now it'll be one of those nice pieces that will be highly sought after.
