Chuck Taylors: White or off-white? - Page 2
Styleforum Top Picks
Thank you! I was wondering the same, because my toddler requested white. But when I went shopping, there was only the stark white to choose from. With the growth spurt that happened over night, I didn't have as much time to wait for more options.
So, I will remove the laces and make a bath of black tea to dye them in to get the same unbleached look that I wanted. I need to antique some papers from a book as well, so this works out well.
So, my little brother wants a new pair of Chuck Taylor's for Christmas. I ask him which colour and he says "white." I go to a Foot Locker, or whatever, and they have two pairs in two shades of "white." One is bright white, like a sheet of paper; the other, off-white.
Which is cooler? I personally preferred the bright white.
My old account must have been deactivated, but to answer. Unbleached if you want to do it right (off white). Optical white, to me is an abomination and U.S. A new color. Cons need to be unbleached white or black if you are going for the cool factor. I have been wearing cons for over 50 years so my rules may not fit your needs. Black high tops with red laces are also acceptable. Sorry, I am a snob about cons, still have one made in USA pair in the closet boxed and two other. Like a fool I sold 3 pair on eBay years ago.
