    They look nice and simplistic., but that price is insane. I'd rather buy a pair of Zonkey Boots in nice leather like this for the same

    Or a pair of Enzo. If you are set on suede, I know both used to make it in a sand , but I can't find it on their sites anymore.

    How are these an alternative to the Common Robbie chelsea though? They are both boots, that's about it.

    You mean from their new basics program?

    To my eyes, the defining feature of a Chelsea is the elastic. For me, the boot is a cross between a Proper Chelsea and a Jodh without ornamentation. Again for me, the visually appealing part is the lack of elastic accentuating the natural lines of the boot. For that, I think a jodh is more appropriate than a Chelsea proper.

    Btw,, there is actually a fit pic of someone wearing them on reddit's male fashion sub.

    Right, I get that. The Geller's are Chelsea by name only. I'm just saying I don't see much similarity between the boots you posted and the Geller's, and definitely not enough for them to be alternatives.
    You are comparing a very sleek side zip boot with a low profile, slightly pointed toe to a harness boot with a much taller rounded/square toe and what looks to be a more substantial heel.
    There are definitely alternatives to the Geller's (off the top, APC, Gucci, Paul Smith all have something similar) but those aren't it

    Yea the basics program just came out/restocked this month but they had other tees. Wondering if people could attest to the quality.

    I've been to their store multiple times and have tried on some of their tees. They're more oversized. I found the fit ridiculously long. In the beginning, they were super soft and really nice and gradually have become less nice. I can't attest to their newest releases with the basic program. I'd give it a try for yourself if you're interested, but from my experience, if you're more into the Geller silhouettes, you're not gonna like them. I'd recommend them more for a Daniel Patrick "nomadic" (sp?)/FOG/ hype boy customer

    Thanks @wurlwyde. Yea I saw their tees were all super long before off the measurements but it looks like the new basics bar shortened the length for the tees that are not e-long. They're still a bit on the longer side but not ridiculously so.

    I was hoping these would be a cheaper alternative to John Elliott. How would you compare the fabric? At less than half the price I figured it might be worth a shot

    Long time lurker here, finally decided to make an account.

    Anyone know if any stores are stocking 5 year fades or are they only for SS? Haven't seen anyone besides maas stock any denim in general this season and they only have black.

    The fabric doesn't compare to john Elliott (on the old ones). It's 100% cotton and nowhere near the hand. If you want a tee like that, check https://uniformla.com

    Do any of the Chicago guys know if RSVP has stopped carrying Geller, or if it's in-store only now?

    What sz are you? I have a brand new pair in sz 32 that I got from Ecole if you're interested, they were too small for me.

    Thanks for the find on the 5 years! I'll be in Chicago on Friday and plan to stop at Notre and RSVP so If you haven't gotten an answer I'll find out.
