Hey dudes, i'm completely re-arranging my wardrobe. starting it by copping a pair of sneaks and boots, so i settled on chelsea boots cause that's kindof the aesthetic i go for, so yeah.
Post inspo, talk good brands, recc some chelsea boots if you can :)
Pic related are common project chelseas, even with the platform putting me of they look so nice.
chelseas are very feminine and homosexual, if you have an "athletic body" then do yourself a favor and buy some manly boots
RM Williams are what Red Wings are to boots. Pricey, but imo worth it fri what I heard. Any one knows anything about their sizing?
By the way, I won't start new thread for this one and only question. Where 2 cop nice full black derby shoes?
dont have a camera
problem is i am handsome and even i dress purposely shitty i end up getting complimented, eg using mismatching patterns, like a striped shirt under a flanell
what do you mean by chain-core?
As in the band, Jesus and mary chain.
not him but chelseas are pretty lame even for /fa/ standards, all the well dressed people who've browsed /fa/ have talked shit on chelsea boots for a reason, not to mention they look like shit on pretty much everyone. idk, maybe just not my thing.
Don't buy chelseas made of leather, shiny ones (like the one's you posted OP) or slim ones, they only look good on skellingtons and homosexuals.
Get something like pic related. Abit sturdier than the dress shoe variants and in some sort of suede, they will fit well with most jeans and be wearable everywhere.
I don't wear super-tight skinnies.
I just wear tapered slims and let the ankle fall as it may. Sometimes it'll ride on top of the boot or sometimes it'll fall over. I never pinroll or fold my cuffs.
Assless chaps come close but chelseas take the cake
can you post a pic of yourself
i like to imagine im handsome, im really ugly and my friends never get girls. i find it hard to believe there are guys out there who get loads of attention without any effort ;_;
tbh i feel the same way, i never really understood people liking chelsea boots.
They look cool in certain situations but most of the time they look really feminine.
this imo is a decent fit with them
I just picked up a pair.. I dont know how I feel about them
here is another picture
the only problem is idk if I got the fit correctly
my toe kind of ends on that black spot, on the whitest point
hopefulyl this is fixed
I thinking of copping this ones for 50$.
I'm really hesitant, but I love the boot's aesthetics.
What do think of these ones? If you need more photos, tell me
over the boot, if its just slim or regular skinny you can stack the trouser hem over the boot to show off the boot and get a fresher feel while walking in a hot day
but never tuck or blouse a chelsea boot, it looks retarded
>dat baby toecap
rules of chelseas IMO:
>the toe shouldnt be too round neither pointy, just perfect
>the throat should be slim as possible, making like an L shape but not too much
>the less pieces the better
>the heel shouldnt be fused with the rest of the sole, there must be a gap inbetween
>the ankle throat should slim as possible or else you get the robot legs
>always wear slim trousers with them or you will look like a dressy hillbilly
it isnt that hard
You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!
Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!
But aside that, do you think it is a decent Chelsea Boot?
It will be my first one, and I didn't want to spend a lot on them because I am not sure if I can rock them.
Despite of this, I don't want to buy a too shitty one so I don't get the wrong impression of what (good) chelsea's boots looks like on feet.
that's the point of the shoe, they're not supposed to be slim
they're docs ffs
Do you really think anybody under 6'0 would look good in them? I'm just saying they're a tough shoe to actually look decent in and even the handful who look decent in them look pretty lame. He is most likely going to look goofy
If you really want them anon, cop. Cop a good pair though ($500+) and don't post fit pics on /fa/ unless you want people to laugh at you
Here's some inspo. Wear black jeans over the boot.
Black boots only go with black jeans really. Get some light brown suede ones if you want to wear them with washed denim like Kanye pic.
chelseas are fine.. they are versatile and worn by plenty of celebs and rockers and stuff. So much autism and overthinking in this thread.
Does Ellen Page pull these chelseas off? Cause she's kind of a womanlet.
>also really like this fit, for some reason.
anyone not telling OP to buy chisel toe blundstones is a fucking idiot
These are 3rd on my list of things to cop. $500+
I love blundstones but I always liked the classic ones more
Don't know pal. It looks goofy if you are small, but have large feet (makes you look like fucking clown). I'm 5'8 and have proportionally small feet. Can't really see that boots don't look good on me.
Nah dude as much as /fa/ says it, i dont think height matters that much, i have 5"8-5"9 friends who pull of shit like chelsea boots way better than i do/would ever, i guess i just look lanky and goofy as fuck though
i like the timberland wodehouse chelsea (pretty much all the wodehouse syles by timberland are great).
do the toes look aight? that's my biggest concern with this pair
This thread is an absolute shitshow
Rate my Xmas cop
>wrinkled leather boots
>with elastic gore sides
if these had a zip closure instead of elastic gores they would be a solid 7/10. as they are now: 3/10. ugly but looks like decent materials
are u illiterate m8? i'm saying that they would look better if they were zip boots. do u want me to hold your hand while i explain how the words that i said mean that meaning? do u want me to fix you a nice bowl of cheerios the morning after we go on a bland and predictable "dinner and a movie" date where i buy the overpriced popcorn and you reach into the tub in my lap in order to snack on some while we watch a re-showing of 50 first dates and then end up back at my place where i'm ashamed i even brought you here because you can't even fucking read and you're a 6/10 at best but you really want it so we spend the night together like some piss poor romantic comedy? is that what you want m8?
I am /fit/, and I still wear Chelsea boots. The style is simply different, you can't just not wear them because they are "feminine", its a matter of taste and the aesthetic you are going for.
Need a new pair of chelseas but dont really have over 300 to spend, thoughts on blundstone? chisel toes look dope imo.
>not wearing bendy jeans
You can always tuck them into the shaft of the boot themselves. Also, a heavy enough denim will weigh them down without it being an issue. It's kind of a pain to put on a pull-on style shoe (especially if the fit is tight/narrow) without something for leverage.
I guess. I cut the tabs on my Doc Chelsea's and they're not hard to get on at all, they just slip right on. Plus the jeans cuff way better over them.
But those do look harder to get into.
Fuck, I thought they are there to be removed, like tag something like this.
Any recommendations for good black chelseas then? Red Wing and National Standard offer some from what I see.
Can I have some help with chelseas not sure if these 681s are worth copping look good imo especially for 200 with delivery to NZ
w2c the long cuban-heeled chelseas like Swinging London had?
SLP has a pair like those, they´re the Wyatt boots
sadly there arent cheaper version or at least imitations of any kind of SLP boots, they just have that speacial vibe and look
No one's gonna come up to you and make fun of your shoes to your face, they'll do it in their heads. Tell me an average person wouldn't judge some random scrawny kid in all black with leather socks on? They're just tryhard as fuck and completely unnecessary. If you like em go for it though
