any suggestions in distressed black or grey? digging some NDC and the W+H service boots, but out of my price range for once a week pair of boots. i just saw the buttero work boot and some tbc.

in all honesty, i'd stay away from DH in general. you'd be basing much of your aesthetic on a few seasons worth or clothing (that could be hard to track down) from a designer that's no longer there and who's time has seemingly passed. instead, i'd look for current designer with a similar vibe-DH was always woefully overpriced and remains so in the secondary market.

and btw, i never liked the cheap plasticy zippers on the $3k + dh leathers.

IMO, buttero or ndc are the best-made mid-priced boots. a pair of ndc will last you 5+ years and are worth the investment.

Heh, I have the Black Scissors rip of that jacket. I love it once it gets all distressed

Yea, I have some NDCs that look like those. They're great shoes. You can sometimes find them for solid prices on yoox

Dress how you want to, and whenever you buy a new piece of clothing ask yourself if it will help you reach your desired aesthetic.

Also, why do you have to follow a "designer." For boots I suggest RM Williams from Australia, and with the current exchange rate, they are quite the bargain. One also doesn't need BoO, the check shirts that Jump The Gun in England sells are slimmer than BoO and much cheaper. One can also go bespoke to get exactly what they want. It is the look that matters, not the label.

Overstock.com also has a few pair for $200 - $300.

Yeah, I think I'm just going to pick up a couple blazers from Dior-inspired designers, maybe a black 2-button suit. I currently have a grey Shipley/Halmos and Navy Hickey. Nice suits. Clean-cut, but works for the hospital environment. Digging these NDC Boots However, they don't have my size 43. Any suggestions for pair of black/grey boots that might work in both streetwear and work environment. Something along the lines of PS Ricards ($200-300 sale). The Buttero look nice, but dare I say clunky?

Agreed.

i disagree. when i see a doc in dockers, i question his judgement.
post #59 of 91
If that shipley suit is size 38jacket/32pants and you're looking to dump it lemme know. Butteros aren't really that clunky imo
