I have never seen this.
Looks like no stitches on the garments and the boots look like plastic copies, the toes look more bulbous than usual
One of the guys who knows a lot about boots (from baller boot thread) should take the bullet and snatch a pair when they hit stores; then do some quality checking, come here and brief as all. If it´s shit, we´ll save some money.
I don't think anyone is planning on buying except you - I don't think I would buy plimsolls from H&M for $5, certainly not something leather for $240. Buying something less expensive as the substitute for something more expensive you want more only leads to heartbreak and wasted money in the long run
Might buy jeans, some of the accessories, the top coat only if decent, boots I wouldn't even dream of. MMM boots are already kinda shit quality for the price, I must admit my brown sidezips get more compliments than all of my other boots.
