personally i tuck it in and secure it with tying the laces around
I've got some 1461's and they're excellent. Look good and comfortable, plus I know they will last me for a long time so they were a bargain IMO.
I've heard black shoe polish will stain them black pretty well. Sharpie fades pretty fast on stitching like that from my experience and then it looks like shit.
Do you like your boots swimming in the bottoms of your pants?
Besides, letting your pants over boots like DM will just make them look like derbies. What's the point of wearing boots (in a fashion sense) if you are going to cover up most of what makes a boot a boot?
Not him, but about a week of regular wear for me.
Just wear thick socks (double up if possible), tie them relatively snug (but not too tight) to avoid slippage and hence blisters, and you'll be fine.
People dislike the yellow stitch around the sole? I made sure mine (1461's, not boots) were yellow stitch. What's the point of getting Dr. Martens without their trademark yellow stitching?
because this board is full of try hard faggots who mimic other people for their stylistic choices and following brands aimlessly off of solely "aesthetics"
If I see any of you stupid fucks with sharpied out yellows on your docs I'm going to bash you I swear on me fuckin mum
I got a pair of 1919s a while ago, which are just 1490s with a steel toe from what I can tell.
Get the Dr. Marten Wonder Balsam and Dubbin, I was using regular boot polish but I switched to the Martens stuff and the leather got a lot more supple and broken in.
Weirdo fucks do like Dr. Martens now, but if you have a skinhead style and just wear them with cuffed jeans they aren't that memey, and if you keep the laces black most people won't even give them a second look.
Do the tie around but don't tuck your jeans, cuff them.
usually how I wear them.
sometimes I'll wear white sports socks
For girls, faggots, and fascists. Somehow the ultra-right and rich teenagers ended up buying the same boots. Supposedly their quality has gone to shit since they moved factories to China.
>tfw you will never be a rude boy in 1960s England, having rumbles with the lads and ditching school
don't tuck jeans into them you fucking retarded faggot roll them up
but at the end of the day you're still a nigger loving poser
I used to have some racist tendencies until I watched "This Is England" and the white power skin had the breakdown asking the Jamaican skin about having a proud dad and it cut me to the bone.
You'll grow out of it big guy.
my 1461 monos came in the mail today. I have the original 1461 also and hate the yellow stitching. they make my feet look like clown shoes I'm only a women's 8. the monos are sleeker with a cleaner look i like them so far. would rec those over the original. they are easy to find discounted If you search around a bit I got mine for $80 brand new
>tfw girls say im indie for wearing docs
Blame Doc Marten for trying to push hipster-quirky and "edgy punk" as their marketing and trying to lose all possible association with any sort of skinhead culture including non-racist. Business wise it makes sense though.
look at their official tumblr mate
no surprise girls think Doc Martens are for "indie" people since I think I saw 1 skinhead after scrolling like 10 pages.
Media painting skinhead as a pure Neo Nazi subculture rather than showing "Boneheads" as a subgroup of Skinheads. When your average person hears about "skinhead" they think Nazi.
Doc Martens are also known as "the Skinhead boot" so business wise distancing themselves from the public perception of skinhead as far as possible is a smart move.
Every skinhead still wears them and the majority of people who know Doc Martens compliment them whenever I wear mine.
tfw im a tumblr beta dude but i think skin fashion looks cool, and actually just buzzed my head and love the look
want to embrace skinhead fashion but dont want to be perceived as a nazi lel
You might be misunderstanding Skinhead culture.
Boneheads are a subgroup of Skinheads, these are the Nazis.
Traditional Skinheads are fairly apolitical, dress very effay, and listen to reggae and ska. Racism isn't a core concept.
SHARPs are Skinheads against racial prejudice who basically are anti Boneheads.
You can be a bone if you want but I think you're mistaking all Skinheads as Boneheads.
Laces & Braces is the supposed "code" for different skinhead groups.
What you commonly hear is
>White laces and suspenders = White power,
>red= blood spilled for the white race
But then you also hear White is for Traditional Skins so who knows.
Personally I find the lace code to be mallcore-hot topic rumor tier shit, and if they really do exists its dependent entirely on your local scene, which as you said, you've seen 10 skins ever, I've rarely seen skinheads outside my group either. Matching laces and braces happens to just be effay as fuck but if you were really concerned about it just don't do white or red since those are the commonly accepted "bad colors"
>pic related, yellow trim polo (Fred Perry maybe) yellow suspenders, and probably yellow laces. Then you see the skin on the ground with white laces so white power or traditional? You'd have to ask him to find out.
Another way to identify boneheads is lack of HS education, drug dealing, drug addicts, and then talking about how master race they are.
Forgot the pic related
Common skins brands btw are Fred Perry, Ben Sherman, Doc Martens.
Really almost everyone on /fa/ is a pair of Docs and Suspenders + a shaved head from being skinhead fashion tier.
Blue I've heard for SHARP and Straight Edge, I find there is a lot of crossover anyway. But there is an example of how the lace code is different for everyone.
Fully shaved heads also seem more indicative of Boneheads but its def. not exclusive to them.
Yellow or black laces I put at no meaning tier since Docs come packaged with them
Red laces can also stand for red skins which are Commie-Anarchists.
Really as I said, the lace code is so all over the fucking place that value really shouldn't be placed in it.
You've gotta ask the Skin wearing it or guess that they are just being effay.
how the fuck does that work
should i get these in mono or original? i like the yellow stitching but also like the sleekness of the mono
>SHARPS will beat the shit out of you
have you ever actually seen a SHARP?
If you pass as cuckcore and think that you can then transition to bonehead just by wearing clothes you're mistaken and yes even SHARPs might be able to beat you up.
I will agree though that SHARPs are tumblr tier babbies though.
quit saying "bonehead" you sound like a retard
get yellow and just polish over the yellow stitching to dull it and make it more subtle. Best of both worlds desu. you can also run it off if you want bright yellow again with a bit of detergent and a cotton bud.
mono looks weird because the sole ends up being black too instead of that gummy colour
