What pair of boots would be ideal for me? A pair of LL bean engineer boots?


im not sure if this is what you're looking for, but i bought these yesterday and have them on right now to break them in, the heels are nearly 1.5" and they have an added insole, so these boots are will also give u some height, they put me very close to 6'3" lol

this is mainly for canadian bros

there's a $20 off for $100+ purchases, and $50 off on $200+ purchases, so if you do the math, buy something else worth $35 ish and have the latter discount make the total down to $150-160 and you can have the boots for like slightly over $100 (i bought it, along with a tuque and sweater for my brother, the computer calculated that i got $41 off the boots)

so i got it for $127 basically, pretty good for a student on a budget like me

i wear 12 in nikes and other sneakers, but i got a 11 in these, because it was the biggest size they had in all the roots stores in toronto atm, the length is the exat same as my sneakers (the sole is actually longer), they fit fine on my left foot, but feeling a bit snug on my right foot's pinky toe, but i'm breaking them in this week in my house and i'll see how it feels

Subaru has a Forester "LL Bean Edition" that's very popular with baby boomer women, so bean wear sounds like a sure bet if you're looking to attract the ladies.

A good idea is stick to brands that are expensive, but not crazy expensive, and just buying items you really want. So I mean Our Legacy and APC, not Visvim (great brand, but horrible prices) and Band of Outsiders (overrated anyway).

retarded advice....since there is isn't a way to distinguish between expensive and crazy expensive. It's all dependent on the person and what value they put in pieces of clothing and they themselves choosing whether the price tag is worth it. For example a designer piece from julius to me is worth every dime, but to someone who shops at J.crew only it isn't. There are people in this very forum who consider $20 shirts incredibly expensive LOL

Well, from Gitman Bros. for example Im sure you get the same quality as Band of Outsiders, without paying as much.
Why the aggressive tone on this forum?

I'm at Arizona State, and every year I just buy a ton of AA shirts in bulk for like $5 each, wear my same 3 or 4 pairs of raw denimz, and I have about 5 pairs of shorts. for shoes, I mostly just wear canvas shoes, converse, vans, stuff like that. you can look good enough for your few hours of class in a t shirt and jeans.
