everyone knows not to cop out on chelsea boots, these YSL boots i've fallen in love with, but not gonna pay like £900 for them because i wear through shoes so easily, is it worth buying it fake? Also how legit is this site?
well i go through heels really badly, i always just reheel them and resole them, so they're never the original heels or soles anyway, so what difference would it make?
is there really a quality difference between the originals and these? is it really £700 worth? i could buy 4 pairs for the price of the original
listen pleb, sounds like you walk everywhere or are more likely, a foot dragger.
first, learn how to walk.
second, spend money on quality shoes.
protip: that means real shoes, not fashion brands.
He's right though. You sound really fixated on the fact that they're YSL or some shit. What exactly do you like about them in the first place? Whats your budget? Theres multiple options for chelseas which look decent and not built like shit fakes at fair prices.
>MFW i can afford this shit in a span of a week keeping my alcoholic habits
i suggest you to save up for the real thing, they´re way better and you can brag about it if thats your case, but if you really need a pair of chelseas right now you can buy rather cheap but not ugly one, the ones in your post are ok but they´re fake so theres that, you can always get the RM Williams McQuire or the asos suede ones which look very nice IMO
i'm really heavy footed, comes with being 6'5, it's not i drag my feet, i just walk on one side of my foot so it wears really unevenly, i don't give a shit about the brand, i'm buying fake shoes you fucking idiot i just really like the way they look, also i have really skinny legs so most boots look stupid on me, and YSL are built for skinny guys
i've met hedi slimane, he's cool but i'm still wearing his designs, i'm just not paying his egotistical price
i don't care that they're YSL i just really like the style, i've seen other ones similar like Allsaints do a similar version, but i like how skinny it is i don't have a budget i'm a poor student, but trust me i have looked around, i model for YSL so i've tried getting them free, and i've tried them on and nothing struck me as being super quality about it
so is the consensus that fake = bad quality? i mean i get different leather, but stitching is stitching, and i can get like 7 pairs for the price of 1 real one, so i could go through 7 pairs before i am in the original ball park
thanks for all the opinions/comments guys
lmao this site takes paypal. buy the shoes and do paypal dispute claiming you didn't know it was fake. almost guaranteed to get your money back since selling fakes is against paypal policy
you have nothing to lose worst case scenario you have to ship it back, but they'll pay the shipping charges. most likely they'll just let you keep it. when you do the dispute just say something like you let you're brother or somebody make the purchase and didn't check if it was a fake website
>i've met hedi slimane
>tfw you dream about meeting him in a party
IMO the thing with the prices is that they unique cuts and sillhouetes make them "rare" and exclusive, when was the last time you saw chelsea boots with a perfect sillhouete, or leather jackest that look classic but have a modern sillhouette?
that's p much w any high end items. ur paying for the design, name, materiels, etc. don't get where all this hedi bandwagon hate comes from but so many ppl ride the raf simons rick owens (usually what i'm dressed in) dicks
pic related might help you
update on it, i will make v1.1 next weekend so tell me more about brands and tips you have for keeping your boots uptight
the thing with Hedi Slimane is that he designs garments that i personally enjoy in the asthetic and technicall view and fits my style but i also like other designer but in very specific areas like Raf Simons in Dior, Karl Lagerfield in certain collections and Haute Couture, Elliee Saab in certain collections, Ann D in the technicall view, Rick Owens in the technicall view in his first collections, specially the fabric and cuts, i can go on with many designers but you fags are unable to appreciate the art of pattern making and fabrics
copped a lands end chelsea for $100 couple years ago it's been holding up p well tbh. slim toe box, leather sole, full grain leather. only prob is the pull tab is too tiny to put a finger through. idk if u can get them anymore though

>is it worth buying it fake?
I love the look of Chelsea boots and skinny jeans, I also love the look of the jodhpurs with the jeans. Does anyone know where to get good jodhpurs for not rape? Cause I love the nut suede from ysl on all of their boots but I can't seem to find any other good brands that won't cost THAT much
150 lb, bruh.
but I love the ad hominem, keep it real homie.
I was right about you not being able to walk, you probably pronate like all plebs, nothing to be ashamed of. You probably pigeon toe too since you read superficial as fuck.
why not just ask your friendo hedi for a discount, or at least ask to suck his dick for 50% off?
ASOS has a pair of suede ones for dirt cheap, I've seen another suede pairs from Dockers with a very good silhouetteand buildd, Idk if they still sell them, I found them in a leather market near my shit town
If you like the silhouette more of a reason to disregard reps. Look at rep geos and the like, and how they compare with the actual shoe for example, most of these companies just do a general trace copy paste without much thought about the minute intricacies that make these items special in the first place.
And its quite rare for me to see any reps use actual welt stitches for shoes, most of the time its going to be glued on with a decorative stitch on the side. The aim is to cut cost no? Welted shoes will cost more production wise.
I'd strongly suggest going straight to a shoemaker instead of designer labels. Herring shoes, meermin (subsidiary of carmina or something if i'm not mistaken), and a lot of smaller houses do good things.
If you ever consider proxying a pair a company called Jalan Sriwijaya does some fairly interesting things at a fraction of most western prices. Its an Indonesian shoe manufacturer whcih exclusively sells their wares for the Japanese market.
Silhouette: how its shaped, small detailing that makes things unique. Like you mentioned how skinny it is and the style. Theres a very good chance fakes will not have the shape which you say you like (of course they wont, fake manufacturers will not have the last/mold used to build the shoe in the first place and use a generic shape).
Also glued on shoes will be shaped differently from stitched shoes just because construction affects how the leather is "pulled" onto the sole
you can wear chelseas with any slim garment you have, it says explicitly in the infograpchic, as long as the garment compliments a slim sillhouette you can wear with chelsea boots, and those are just entry level recomendations, lrn2read
i wear black slimfit cropped hem chinos to work with my chelsea beaters
hmm idk, its a nice concept but the patterns look shoddy and the cuts are too lazy, unless he´s doing it ironically, its a sensible next step to normcore IMO with more advanced cuts rather than the boxy generic patterns and drapes from the low end fashion industry (pic related)
not really my cup of tea but whatever floats your boat m8, also, Hedi doesnt repeat designs, the last collection, psych rock and almost all the womenswear collections were different from each other but keeping the same aesthetic conecpt of heroinchic, specially collections from 2013 and 2014 with a very post punk look
hedi has been repeating the same shit since 2001, what the fuck are you babbling about? hedi is, and always will be, a good STYLIST and a bad designer. Dior had workers skilled enough to actually turn his vision (which i like, but to call it anything but the same thing repeated for almost two decades would be a lie) into some great stuff, Saint Laurent don't, which is why the quality is barely above zara-level compared to old DH.
Are you saying old DH were more simplistic than current SLP? Everything SLP puts out right now are less elaborate versions of older Dior pieces, which is exactly why people call Hedi a hack/one trick pony/sell out and what not. While every successful designer have to deal with some "emerging talent" making knock offs to mooch off of the hype, Hedi is actually doing it to himself.
I'm not trying to tell you what to like or not to like, do you, but if you're going to be giving advice to people you should probably 1) educate yourself a bit more about the subject and 2) develop your eye/sense of style/whatever you want to call it.
Yeah, maybe you're right, I'll re-analyze this whole thing
Birch, I made a whole infographic abot Chelsea boots, I give basic garment tailoring advice and actual constructive criticism, if you don't want to take it that's not my problem
What do you want from me? Spoon feed you? No, you have to develop your style and learn by yourself, if someone says you fucked up and also has a solid argument or point out where you're wrong then you take the advice and try to improve yourself, you don't go around shit posting all around the board name calling everyone just because you don't like them
Damn /fa/ keep your shit together
