Solo fíjense como el tipo de camisa a cuadros puede ser asesor de imagen, cuando usa una aburrida camisa a cuadros, botón down prendida hasta el penúltimo botón. Es un standard, un rutinario, estaría mejor como ingeniero o arquitecto haciendo cosas que tienen resultados matemáticos NO aconsejando de moda, es un ladrillo
if you know where to look you can get boots for the cheap. I get a pair of wolverine 1883 alec chelsea boots for $50, and Dr martens for $60 on amazon and it was from amazon themselves. i know Sierra trading post sells boots for the cheap and they are a parent company to tjmaxx.
man my work boots definitely dont look like those wolverine boots at all, you sure their for work? On a different note, men have been wearing leather boots forever (for hard work or not) so I really dont get the hate in the comment section.
Just make sure that the stitching is going into the sole and the boot is from a known, trusted company. You should be set following those main 2 points. I've spent as little as $70 on a Clarks chukka to $250 on Cole Haans and others. I've bought boots (derby, chukka, oxfords, monkstraps) in leather and suede twice a year since '11. It's worth it, especially some suede or brown leather chukkas for daily life. Great video, guys!
like your one seems a little longer up the ankle than the ones available at the wolverine website https://www.wolverine.com/US/en/original-1000-mile-boot/17967M.html?dwvar_17967M_color=W05301#crl8-gallery also what color is that one? cuz the color names on the website and the photos seem misleading.
I can't stand when people call other people hipsters yet came to this video because they searched Wolverine 1000 mile boots because work boots are popular now. These are all fashion boots. You didn't come here because you were looking for a pair of boots to work in. Hipster.
I️ happen to be a hipster who has done plenty of work in my life and I’m only fourteen, granted, most of my generation is not the same but I️ grew up doing all the yard work, helping with wood splitting, and multiple other things. And when they say work boots they are talking about a style of boots. It’s a more rugged, squared off and usually taller boot. Most of us wouldn’t actually work in the fashion versions of work boots
It always cracks me up when people call things like clothing items an investment. I know that they are actually trying to say that the item is worth the money spent most of the time. An investment is something that you plan on selling at some point for profit. I have seen people spend what could have turned into a million dollar retirement on clothing and say that they have a lot invested in suits. No, you just blew your shot at doing anything in your seventies on nice clothes.
Sure. But investing is the wrong word for getting a good deal on a quality product. Smart shopping for good clothing might be a worthwhile endeavor but it isn't the same thing as investing for retirement. Using the word investing for making what is probably a luxury purchase of fine clothing is a sales gimmick.
"To invest is to allocate money in the expectation of some benefit in the future."
The benefit of investing a little more in your clothing doesn't have to be a return in money. It can be better fit, better material so it'll last longer, better production, better look. Whatever it might be.
Complete dumbass douche bag posers. These guys' dads failed. Likened to chicks who grow up to dance on a pole type failure. Pure comedy and they don't even know it. Must have pushed their scouting threshold with the art&crafts participation badge and backyard outing demonstrating heat conservation spooning survival techniques with the troop leader. I sure do hope these "men" are homosexuals because the human race doesn't need their weak genes' offspring.THIS WORLD IS GOING TO HELL
+G11B Justify how much you want. He is right. If someone wants to wear boots for the sake of wearing boots he shall wear boots.
I wear boots because of the extra ankle support but I never work in them.
+lum0s I'd advise you to stay away from starbucks, your book club, and crochet classes.
At this point, I can say with complete honesty that I can't even tell your gender. Are you a worked-up retarded "feminist" or just a "woman in a boy's body"? Can't tell what you've got going on...
lumberjack fashion tips?
isn't this the very same hipster uniform nerds have been wearing in williamsburg since 2000?
also, you guys talk about authenticity in style. but you're not really lumberjacks.
finally, isn't this really just another fashion trend running it's course? (like puka shells in the 70s, skinny ties and buddy holly glasses in the 80s, grunge in the 90's, hipster old-timey fashion at the turn of the century)
this trend has been around long enough that if you follow trends, you might start looking for whats coming next.
FF you live in the usa, just go to Wolverine / Rocky / Timberland as well as so many others and buy a simple waterproof boots and be done with it.. wolverine even has waterproof boots with rugged "classic" looking.. like this one: http://www.wolverine.com/US/en/wilbur-boot/21767M.html?dwvar_21767M_color=W40015 Although if i live in usa i'd probably buy normal looking work/hiking boots
Hey guys, what do you think about Caterpillar boots? I usually wear their steel toe work boots all the time, and have a few of their more casual boots as well. I'm mostly wearing a pair of jeans (cuffed legs) with some tshirt or checkered shirt with the sleeves rolled up, and a leather jacket or blazer when it's a bit colder out.
+Kashif Malim I can give you first hand account of Caterpillar boots as I have had two pairs that have lasted TEN years. Both pair were durable long lasting and if you take care of the boots (by polishing & conditioning) they will always look nice and wear for many years. I just bought a pair of Chippewa boots type 25227 and ordered another pair of Caterpillars (waiting for shipping). I polish my boots about 3 or 4 times a year and clean them when in the mud/working outside.
No slip on western style boots? Some of the square toe styles in a nice leather can be really versatile fashion wise but also provide a lot of full calf protection for people who like to go from the office to outdoors.
You guys did a great job putting an emphasis on a boot style, but you guys are too clean cut to wear boots. The styles your claiming are more in the blue collar spectrum. However, I could see your trying. Thanks
I'm not sure if someone has already picked up on this, but; You keep comparing suede and leather. Suede IS leather. Absolutely no difference other than the finish. Suede is a brushed finish as opposed to a polished (smooth) finish.
Sorry... I find your consumer driven diatribe to be lame and aimed towards the inherently stupid.
My 20+ year old Sorels are in same condition as my 5 year old pairs. Prep and quality dictates..
NOT price... as you suggest.
So back to your Fedoras and sipping your Chai Lattes...
For REAL boot shopping... here:
If you want to learn how to match your boots to your skirt and new thong, go ahead and watch this video. If you want to use boots for more than just a trendy, "right now" fashion statement, look elsewhere. They talk about men wanting authenticity to their clothing, yet are not authentic men. Look how soft their hands are! Holy hell I bet you're the most popular girl at the hand job mart with those non-callused meat grabbers.
This is agonizing. It's like you're putting on man a costume. You can't go down to Neiman Marcus and buy manhood, it's in your blood. Your silly haircuts and flannel shirts make me sick, I bet your penis is embarrassed to be attached to you. I hope this trend ends quickly, you're making the rest of us look bad.
That difference used to be a huge one, with descriptive names like Snowball and Patches and cat-specific names like Tigger and Tabby dominating the feline arena. Since the year 2000, though, the dog-cat gap has narrowed dramatically. If you look at the top 10 names for male and female cats today, 14 of the 20 are also common human names. For dogs, the number is 15 of 20. The fastest-falling cat name list is packed with names like Whiskers, Tiger and Miss Kitty, while the rising names include Henry, Stella and Zoey. Watch your backs, dogs, the cats are on the move.
Pet Sex Discrimination?
The narrowing cat-dog gap looks like a move toward pet equality, but a new gap is rising -- a gender gap. I was fascinated to see that female pet names are trending human much faster than male pet names. The numbers in the previous paragraph showed that 72.5% of the top pet names are common human names. That turns out to break down to 50% of male names, 95% of female.
Whats more, single-sex pet names are soaring. The fast-falling names are full of unisex classics like Snowball, Lucky, Whiskers, Pepper and Shadow. The fast-rising names names are almost all sex-specific. In fact, for dogs even the hot non -human names are ultra-macho ones like Diesel, Tank and Thor. Apparently, we want to be secure in our dogs masculinity.
