if you don't own a pair of chelsea boots and an overcoat you are so 2000 and late and do not belong in effay.
>brb your girlfriend smiles at me while i walk past because you dress beta as fuck
>brb you think youre effay because your hoody is alexander wang and your sneakers are rick owens but all them labels dont stop you from looking like youre mentally still in highschool
bonus points if you own roll neck jumpers
don't lie, you finally realized just how beta you are and are currently browsing ASOS for overcoats
>tfw I bought both in november
>tfw thought I did this with my own free will
>tfw still dressed by the internet
'sup my fellow trendhoppers
just picked mine up
cant wait to try out some fits : - D
i would personally recommend ASOS's suede chelsea boots, only the round toe ones though... the pointed toe ones have a feminine shape all the way through.
Quality isn't the best but you get what you paid for. I've worn mine practically daily for the last 2 years (?) and they're still in fantastic shape.
tbh i think it looks better now than when i first got them since now that theyre worn they have some character
suede is a lot more forgiving compared to leather when it comes to budget vs high quality. Cheap leather is obvious but suede is more difficult to distinguish because it doesn't wrinkle in the same way.
Get some ASOS chelseas, see if they suit you and fit your style, worst case you're down <£50, best case you upgrade to some decent chelseas
You never, ever buy anything but basic shit from stores like h&m etc. There are tonnes of brands at the same price that fucking blows the fast fashion chains out of the water. The *only* advantage of fast fashion stores is that they have everything gathered under the same roof.
Not that I got anything against overcoats (I fucking love them myself), but apparently every run off the mill hipster in my country is dressed in: an overcoat (the longer the better), beanie hat, pinrolled denim/trousers, new balance and "quirky" socks or no socks at all. Faggy 'stache and glasses are optional. Not sure whom I hate more, "muh kanye" hoodie- and sneakerfags or those people.
Oh, i would've guessed they get wrecked pretty fast, since everyone advises not to buy shoes off fast fashion brands.
I think i'm going to buy some meermins, since they aren't even 200 e. They look gorgeous, too.
>tfw common projects still hasn't released these beauties despite them being part of the spring/summer 2015 collection
I'm about to buy some shit tier asos chelseas to tide me over. I can't wait any longer.
What do you like about them? Has the suede aged well? How do they fit?
I agree that the two tabs are excessive but they aren't visible when worn with pants so it wouldn't really be a problem.
they r just slim and comfortable, u can pretty much wear them with most things too, i own the light tan suede ones. i've had em for about 6 months and they r in great condition apart from some bleed stains from raw denim, can't go wrong for $70
Thanks for the help man.
The suede looked a bit thicker and the soles seemed a little sturdier on these so i opted for them instead. They're "save the bear" if anyone is interested.
this is my kind of thread
>tfw spring is here already and the only jacket you can wear is a bomber jacket
oh fuck, now i have to wait untill fall to pull off the rest of my wardrobe, literally the 80% of it
stop it m8, these boots look like shit (pic related)
