With all the wear on the sole of the shoes it is possible that they are his own.

I've watched this show a few times. I generally dislike everything this guy wears except for the blazers and stripe ties. I don't really like the character. He beds hot women left, right and centre but when I look at this guy pouting I think this guy can't possibly be straight.

Chace Crawford is wearing an IWC Big Pilot. They've zoomed in on it in other episodes. Their commitment to character-appropriate costuming goes a lot deeper than expensive shoes.

I'm not sure I follow- why is the IWC any more character appropriate than any other expensive watch for Nate? Also, PM me if you want to know Chuck's watch

It is an interesting style and refreshing to see on one so young. But considering he is a fictional character and is styled by someone else I would hardly consider him an icon.

I never watched the show (odd I have a Chuck Bass avatar though), but I know they were really expensive clothes (Lanvin, BoO, etc.) from reading blogs. I am sure they have stylist team who already have all of the clothes and rent or lend it to the cast for the show.

Ive read a few interviews with different actors from the show and they said that a lot of the clothes they wear on the show they get to keep afterwards. Im pretty sure that the producers want the actors to look the part even when they are off set. Im sure that Chuck Bass has worn those shoes on more than one episode.
