Hello /fa/. First time there, I need some help in choosing clothes for fall.
I wanted to wear jeans, boots, parka and some shirt/tshirt. Don't know much about fashion, but I think it's time to improve myself.
Jeans - Levi's 511 (dark blue or black)
Boots - Caterpillar Orson or Red Wing Iron Ranger/Beckman (they are expensive, man...)
Parka - no fucking idea
Please /fa/, help me out.
going to bandwagon on your thread, mate.
What do you think of this boots, fa?
there are a lot of parkas out that, do you have any idea what kind you want? I feel like this is sort of the look youre going for
Yes. This one looks good. Better darker one, perhaps bit longer. I just don't know which one and where since there are so many brands and variants. Same with jeans, but people tell me Levi's is good for the money.
What can you say about boots? Are Iron Ranger worth the price, I mean 280€ is quite an ammount of money for shoes that wear out in hal a year...
IR's are worth the price.
consider getting a pair of unbranded, they're very good for the price, and from what I hear the same price as levi's in EU
Beckman or Iron Ranger? Also, I live in Germany, it rains there a lot. Is it really good to wear leather shoes in rain? What about Caterpillar Orson, they look good too and cost 100€ less.
Unbranded? Which model would you recommend. Best were slim since I find skinny difficult to wear.
I don't know how you wear boots but, I've had my IRs for almost a year and they look brand new except for a couple scratches and some heel wear. 280 eur seems like a high price for a pair though since they are $300 usd or less in the states.
Unbranded are solid jeans but, they can bleed really bad. You can find some N&F for about the same price on sale. Rawr Denim has a sales guide published somewhat frequently and they also have a jean search engine.
I have no experience with Beckman, so I can't comment on that, but my IR's are awesome.
Leather shoes in the rain should be fine as long as you take care of them, and I actually own a pair of Caterpillar Orson, I got them for $7 on eBay and they're decent, but they're very obviously fake leather and the bottom of the shoe is pretty shoddy. If you buy them, I'd recommend getting better laces for them.
I got the slimmest fit possible, and they fit really, really well on me. I'm a 29 waist and bought the 101 skinny fit, pic is me
I know it's stupid question, but how often should you normally change your wardrobe? I mean, I see people from my university who have new cheap shoes every month. Is it normal to wear same shoes for more than one year (of course I will not only wear them, but I will not buy another 300€-boots).
I must have been my pair then. The dye bled onto my hands when I put them on. This was when they were brand new though and this happened like 2-3 years ago so they might have changed the dye.
I think a few of us have RW Iron Rangers or similar boots that don't get much wear because /fa/ as whole has shifted away from workwear/menswear.
Someone hear may be able to sell you a used, but likely well-cared for pair for less. Ask.
I aalways thought that because of my bigger frame and wide feet that big boots would look awful on me. Is it opposite? Would I look better then a smaller built person with like a size 10 where in a 12 - 12 1/2
I guess it depends on the overall shape of your foot and the size of the toe box. In my opinion the taller you are the better you can pull off bigger soles. This is what happens when you have a small foot and order big boots.
Fjallraven stuff gets pretty pricey, but they got some good $200 parkas and jackets.
>tfw found an old parka (synth cloth but well who gives a shit it's warm) in a bazar for 10 dollars. 20 dollars for repairing the holes and missing buttons and it's fine as hell. I think It's from a nice designer but as the tag thing got torn I don't know.
