Styling Winter Pieces 2020 ( Petite Guide feat. Everlane Glove Boots)

[Music] hello everyone welcome back to my channel so for today's video I'd like to share with you guys how I'd style some key winter pieces now this includes the Blazer the coats the sweater and all that jazz so hope you guys enjoy and if you did please don't

forget to subscribe to my channel and hit that bell so you can get notified of more videos like this now let's get on with the video so first up is the Blazer in here I am wearing my ever lean terracotta houndstooth blazer which is one of my favorite

at the moment now I got this blazer because I find the color is unique and not one that you can see often in a houndstooth design which you know is usually black and white this is also oversized hence the boxy fit so just make sure to get the

right size for you especially if you're petite like me I paired this blazer over a light-colored outfit to emphasize the neutral colors and of course from ever link love boots which I will be wearing all throughout the styling the top is also from Everly which is a pink

ballerina cashmere worn over my Portman jeans winter is something without accessories so I decided to add this cute neutral beret and this purple checkered meat scarf just to accentuate things further I'll put all the descriptions of my outfits down below so make sure to check out the description

box for reference so next winter piece item is the coat my first example for it is this gorgeous burgundy coat from forever new I was inspired by its rich jewel tone here that I decided to pair it with a bold green color top which reminds me of three

things actually the emerald ruby gemstones and believe it or not an eggplant but you know eggplant or not I am loving the color combinations of all these three that goes to show that style inspirations can be taken from literally anywhere even those you can see in your kitchen

anyhow kidding aside I used a black pants to tone things down a bit giving up my top coat and shoes are bright and bold colors as it is but also I decided to use a black leather pants just add texture to the entire outfit for accessories I decided

to keep it fairly simple with gold jewelry for my earrings and my necklace another example of the coat is the classic trench I love wearing a trench coat especially if you would expect some rain in a very cold weather this coat right here is something that I have

drifted a few years back and is now a very much staple in my winter wardrobe I paired this with another everything ballerina cashmere top over a black leggings another thrifted item which by the way I'm amazed how these leggings has kept up with me for like six years

now yeah the quality is really amazing this brand of leggings is called V gorilla and it is an Australian brand I will link their site into the description box down below again for accessories I decided to use a beanie on this outfit coupled with this purple knit scarf

which I think adds an extra oomph to this entire look next winter piece item is the puffer jacket this is a definite must-have for the season because it gives the best warmth out of all outerwear however it's something I find tricky to wear for us petits especially due

to the bulkiness of it which can overpower our already short frame so my tip for wearing puffer jackets is to wear layers underneath if you have a good quality cashmere or wool sometimes a single layer would be enough but of course this would be dependent on where you

live and what type of winter you have in your location so just keep this in mind I on the other and usually wear skinny jeans or leggings with puffer jackets because I find that it streamlines the entire look and it complements the volume and the bulk that the

puffer jacket brings this dark green puffer here is a sample sale I got from a Giordano outlet store and I like how it has a hoodie on it as well again I paired it with these V karela leggings and my Evelyn glove boots which adds a cute pop

of color to an otherwise monochromatic style for my scarf I chose this white neat scarf just as an added element of warm for this winter look [Music] another puffer jacket I wanted to show you guys is this ever Lane purple puffer which is absolutely light and is not

as bulky as a lot of puffers out there this caught my eye because of its lovely lilac color which is easy to style with and I was curious as well on however Lane buffers would compare with other brands such as Uniqlo and Kathmandu I must say I'm not

disappointed like I said it's light provides good warmth on winter days and more importantly it's easy to pack because it's not bulky I used my every Lane mock neck cashmere as my top again over with my vigor Ella leggings and these ever lean glove boots which complements the

sweater that I am wearing to keep the outfit more interesting though I thought to add this bright red beret which gives a subtle pop of color to this muted neutral outfit and this white knit scarf from a previous example just to tie everything into one stylized look [Music]

last winter piece item is the sweater depending on how cold it is a good old big sweater is something I prefer because it's easier to wear layers underneath and it makes me feel cozy especially if it's a chunkier material like this texture cotton sweater from every Lane which

by the way is currently on half-price at the time of posting this video so check it out I will link the site on the description box below so again this sweater you guys is really comfortable it's a chunky knit combination of cotton and nylon perfect with something like

a cashmere or a wool underneath I have worn this over another eberlein favorite which is the straight leg crop hats I got this on an ankle length which suits really well for my short height for this outfit I also used my trusty brown leather belt which i think

is crucial in elevating this style over my Evelyn glove boots because of its brown color and also if you know me I've been banging on how important it is to tuck your tops sweaters included if you can to make your height look visually taller which is something I

have shared on my previous video if you haven't watched it yet I will link that video on the description box as well last but not the least I chose this pink and gray snoot which I got as a gift from my friend and I absolutely adore it the

design and color is cozy from the get-go and it adds such beautiful detail on a simple outfit now this post wouldn't be complete without the star of this style guide the ever lane glove boots Renate in the color toffee this is as gorgeous as you see it in

person and the color loving the color very much that you can see how easy it is to style it with all the outfit looks on this video plus just the design of it alone is so elegant with that squared pointed toe and texturize material it's one of those

unique boots that I haven't seen elsewhere at the moment also these boots are made out of recycled plastic bottles yes 9 plastic bottles for every pair to the exact according to their website and you wouldn't believe how such beautiful quality Footwear can come out of plastic bottles you

can just wear these straight out of the box because it is that comfortable too and that's it you guys thank you so much for watching this video and hope that each style guide was helpful one way or the other in your day to day outfit inspiration if you

Best Boots & Shoes of 2019!

– The best of the best when it comes to shoes and boots.

Hi ladies, it's Erin and welcome back to my channel.

Today I wanna talk allabout shoes and boots.

The best of the best from 2019, my absolute favorites.

When I look at the entire year as a whole, which pairs of shoes andboots were the most versatile? Which pairs were that perfect combination of both fashion and function.

(whooshing) Okay, so let's get startedon that top ten list for shoes and boots.

Starting out with one of my top favorites and also, coincidentally abest seller among bloggers across the board and it's these Vince Camuto booties.

You may remember I just did a video where I styled theseexact booties five ways with Nordstrom and so if you're looking for styling ideas with a bootie this color you'll definitely wanna goback and watch that video but I just love thesebooties because of the color.

They are skin tone for me, so I can wear them withskirts and dresses.

I also feel like it's a very neutral color so I can pair it withlike this type of tone, grays, cremes, whites, taupe, brown, it just is a really lovelyversatile, neutral color, manageable, chunky heel.

I love the cut-outs on the side.

Gives it a modern fresh detail.

Also frames the ankle andelongates the leg a bit more and it's just a great bootie.

Definitely a heavy hitter this year.

The second pair of booties Iwanted to highlight are these by ECCO, E C C O.

I featured them last year on the blog.

I featured them a coupletimes here on YouTube.

If you're a regular vieweryou'll probably remember these.

I love them because they havethe low, stacked, chunky heel.

I love them also for the side zip.

They're also very comfortable.

They're flexible andthey're black and brown, so you can really wearthem with either color.

They're very light weight as well.

This is a great justwalking shoe, travel shoe, travel bootie and everyday, comfortable, functional but stylish bootie.

The next major heavy hitter for me in the shoe departmentwas these, wedge sneakers.

The Felicia by Linea Paolo and I love these so much, especially for traveling because they give methe height that I want without sacrificing comfort.

They also are easy to get on and easy to get offbecause of the side zip and they do not set offthe alarm at airport so if you're TSA precheck, you don't have to worry about taking them off, but if you do take themoff they're really easy to get on and off which I appreciate.

I also think they are so cute.

They come in a zillion colors.

This is just two of thecombinations I have, but they have basic black, basic brown, basic creme, white beige, you know, you name it, they have it.

I love the way they look.

I love the way they feel and I also love how theygive me that extra three or so inches with jeans.

(whooshing) The next shoes I wannahighlight is actually a pair of knee-high boots.

These are by Vince Camuto.

You guys know I'm a huge Vince Camuto fan.

I pretty much partnerwith them on the blog at least once a month and that's because I love them.

I love the shoes.

They're always comfortable.

They're always like uniform in terms of sizing which I appreciate'cause I don't wanna have to guess on my size every single time I order a pair of shoes and they also are always very fashionable so here's an example of a terrific pair of knee-high boots.

Very versatile, neutral color.

Nice almond toe.

Great stacked heel.

This color you can wearwith just about anything, blacks or browns.

Easy to get on, easy toget off with the side zip, and it's just a great looking boot.

I love 'em and I didfeature these in my video where I talked aboutthose ten essential shoes and boots that every woman should own and if you missed thatvideo, you should go back and watch that.

I kinda dive into a little bit more depth as to why this pair of bootsspecifically is a classic and something that's great to invest in.

That's a great videoto compliment this one after you finish watchingthe top ten list.

(whooshing) Next up, we've got these booties by Alexander Wang.

I had been looking at these booties for well over a yearbefore purchasing them.

I was thinking about it.

I was like do I wanna buy these? Do I not wanna buy these? Do I need these? Do I not need these? You know, that wholemental shopping dilemma that goes on inside your head.

Maybe it doesn't go on inside your head, but it certainly goes on inside mine.

I ended up getting themand I'm so happy I did.

I wear them all the time.

They're comfortable.

They're super versatile.

I love this detail right here.

It's so unusual and distinctiveand cool and edgy and modern and of course you've got theside zip making it very easy to put on and off andthe heel is chunky again.

Easy to walk in.

Comfortable to walk in.

These are rose gold.

You can see this islike a gold accent here, but they do have a pair also with silver, so you can do silver zip andsilver accent in the cut-out.

(whooshing) The next pair of boots I wanted to show you guys are these bad boys.

They are combat boots by C By Chloe.

I got these because some of the bees in the Busbee style hive asked me how I would style combat boots and it occurred to methat I didn't have any and then I was thinking about why and I felt like it wasoutside my comfort zone and I wasn't sure if I could pull 'em off 'cause I'm 45 and am I cool enough? Am I too old? I don't know.

All of this insecurityswirling around in my brain, but I promised my bees thatI would give them a try and I would style the combat boots, which I did a video on stylingcombat boots three ways, which I will put a link to below but I ended up buying this pair after a careful exhaustive search.

These are so cool.

I am so happy I bought thembecause I really love them now and I feel so comfortablewearing them now.

Not only do you have thisreally low chunky heel with a lug sole which isgreat for wintery weather here that we have in Telluride, you also have a side zip so Ilove that feature with laces.

I don't actually have to lace anything up.

I can just unzip the side and slip them on and slip them off.

These are a little bit on the heavy side.

I'm sure there are somethat are a bit lighter but I just love the way they look.

I also love this buckle detailing here.

What did we learn from this? We learn that you should step outside of your comfort zone once ina while and try new things because things may surprise you, so this is an example of me stepping out of my comfort zone.

I wasn't feeling like I could pull it off.

I was feeling a littlebit too old for them, not cool enough for them, and I'm happy I tried thembecause I really do love them, so I wanted to sharethat story with you guys so you remember thatthere may be something that feels outside your comfort zone but you kinda want to try it.

Go ahead and try it.

Just do it.

Like, what's the worstthing that can happen? You end up not liking itand then you return it, or you end up not likingit and then you sell it or give it away or whatever, but you tried it.

Do you know what I mean? It's just good for you to step outside that fashion comfort zone once in a while, or with anything in life.

(whooshing) So next two pairs of shoes I wanted to share with you areby the same designer, the former co-founder of Jimmy Choo and now the founder ofTamara Mellon, Tamara Mellon, so here is the signatureTamara Mellon shoe.

It's called the Frontlineand they make these in varying heel heights, so they have the flats.

They have a mid-heel.

They have the high heel, and then they have nude and I think they have white and black, so there are a variety ofheel heights and colors, but these are so unusual, unique, sexy, and they really make a statement.

I really love this pair of heels.

It is more of like a naked shoe, so if you don't love your feet it might be a little bit of an issue.

These are just a knock-out pair of shoes, like with dresses, jeans, skirts, special occasions, New Year's Eve, like, it's your go-to.

Love 'em so much.

(whooshing) The next pair I wantedto show you is this pair of boots by Tamara Mellon.

I did a blog collaborationwith them earlier this year, like a few months ago, and through that collaboration I was able to pick out two pairs of shoes.

I'm like why can't wework together every month.

I'm up for that.

Sometimes my gig is pretty darn cool.

So this was the second pair I picked out and I absolutely love these.

I love the mesh detailing at the top.

I love how you can scrunch'em or pull 'em straight.

I love the color.

I love the heel.

Just such a sexy, fabulous pair of boots but still feels accessible, not crazy and very wearable althoughthey're quite dressy, so you're gonna wannawear them on date night or you're gonna wanna wearthem to a dinner party or just during the day ifyou've got something going on that you're meetingsomebody for lunch or coffee and you wanna really step up your game, it's a great pair of bootsand comfortable for heels.

(whooshing) I mean, this next pair of boots, are you guys sick of 'em yet? I wear them all the time.

I love them so stinking much.

They are just amazing.

I love, love, love.

These are really comfortable for heels and just really luxe looking with the crack embossed leather Beautiful heel, beautifulpointed toe, very elongating.

I love the rounded top.

I love how their loose fitting so when you wear themover jeans or leggings they just look so sleek.

It's just a great boot.

You will not regret buying these.

You will be so happy you bought them.

(whooshing) And then last, but not least, these Paris Texas booties.

I bought a couple of ParisTexas boots this season and I really love the line.

It's newish and they're doingthe crack embossed shoes and boots a lot too just like the Schutzones I just showed you.

This pair, you know, I wasin Nordstrom in California and a couple people stopped me and were like what are those boots? Where did you get them? For sure they were likeJimmy Choo or Prada or something really expensive, so I mean, it is a higher price point, but I think that these are a show stopper.

They are just so luxe and gorgeous.

You will love them.

These take a little bit of breaking in.

Not much but just alittle bit of breaking in.

I did wear these for an all day travel day which I would not recommend because we have what, a four inch heel.

Like, that's notpractical for travel ever.

Rookie mistake on my part.

I was thinking I didn'thave my kids with me and I could do it, but it was just silly and Iforgot about the Denver airport and how far it is to getfrom one gate to the other.

Anyway, long story short, I was kickin' myself, choon, with my fabulous boots thinking why the hell did I wearthese on my travel day.

Never do that.

Never, never, never.

I think these are comfortable enough for walking around butyou don't wanna be like touring a city in themor traveling in them.

Just a gorgeous, stunning pair of booties and you guys will love these for sure.

(whooshing) Okay, so if you missed the other best ofs, I will put a link to that right up here and also in the description box below as well as links to everythingI featured in the video in case you're interestedin checking them out.

Remember this is a peak sale time.

Take advantage of those sales.

Be strategic about it.

Look at what you need in your closet.

What are those basics you're missing? What are those piecesthat really would put that extra spring in your step.

Invest in one or two of those this season.

Treat yourself.

Do something nice for yourself because you deserve it.

You are all amazing, beautiful women and you deserve to treatyourself now and again.

Boots style Uggs tricot bébé 2/2 / Uggs baby boots knit (english subtitles)

I finished my 10 rows of garter stitch.

Very important, in the front side, we have 8 central stitches, and on the side we start with 21 stitches.

This 8 central stitches, don't touch them.

The decreases are made on the two sides.

Here the decreases are purled.

(P) You see, here we are on the back side of the work, we have to knit (K) the decreases.

So when you turn it (on the front side), the decreases look purled (P).

And when we knit on the front side, the decrease will be purled (P).

Like this you'll have your decreasespurled on the good side.

(P) (assorted to the boots) So we'll have 21 sts on one side, 8 central sts and 21 sts on the other side.

We start with the selvedge stitch, then you have to knit 21 sts(we count the selvedge stitch), we knit another 8 stitches (K8), we have another 21 sts.

Now you have to makethe decrease.

On this side (back side) you have toknit the decrease.

We turn the work, and we put the thread thatit's on the left needle on the right needle.

I put the thred in the good placeand I knit the 8 central stitches.

I purl the next 2 stitches, I turn the work, and I put this loopon the right needle.

I continue to knit the 8 central sts.

Again, I have to do the decrease, , I'm on the back side, so I knit it (K).

I take this 2 stitches and I knitthem together.

We return the work and I passe this stitchon the right needle.

I put the thread at his place and I startto knit the 8 centrat sts.

I'm in the front side, so I willpurl the next 2 stitches.

Again, I turn the work, and I putthe left stitch on the right needle.

You continue like this 8 sts.

I'm on the back side, so Iknit the next 2 stitches.

You have to work like this, until you have 11 sts on your left needle.

Now I have another 19 stitches on the left needle.

You got to have 11 sts left, without the 8 central sts.

So I go on.





I just finished my last decrease, so I have 11 sts left on the left needle.

You continue to knit the 11 left sts, you don't turn your piece.

You turn your piece and you haveto knit all sts.

(K) Look, here when you have 12 sts left youhave to do 1 decrease.

In order to have 11 sts like on the other side.

Arriving there, as we are in the front side, we're going to purl the decrease (P).

And you continue to knit until the end of the row.

(K) There you have the front of the bootsthat is ready.

Now you have to knit5 rows of garter stitch.

(knit all, 32 sts) So 5 rows of garter stitch, and in the 6th row we're gonna cast off the sts.

(close) We got the bottom of the boots.

I finished the 5 rows of garter stitch, now I'm gonna cast off the sts.

Be flexible in your work, the renderingwill be much prettier.

At the end cut the thread (leave a long piece).

The bottom part is finished.

Now we have to make the upper part, with the twist.

You have to cast on 38 sts.

The distribution of the 38 stitches:12 stitches at left in garter stitch.

2 purl stitches before the twist, 12 stitches stockinette stitch (for the twist), 2 purl stitches (after the twist), 8 stitches in garter stitch, and the 2 selvedge stitches on each side.

You knit the 1st stitch.

Then you have to knit 12 sts (K12), purl 2 sts (P2), knit 12 sts (K12), purl 2 sts (P2), knit 8 sts (K8), and you knit the selvedge stitch.

You see the result, with the 2 purl stson each side.

For the row n° 2 you have to knit12 sts (K12), knite 8 sts, (K8) and then you do the stitches as theypresent themselves.

So, selvedge stitch, knit 8 sts (K8), knite 2 sts (K2), (so they look purled on the other side) purle 12 sts (P2), (so they look knited on the other side) knite 2 sts (K2), (so they look purled on the other side) knite 12 sts (K12), (garter stitch) and the selvedge stitch.

You work like this until the 6th row.

I finished the 6 rows.

At the 7th row, we're going to do the twist.

So I take the selvedge stitch, knite 12 sts ( K12), purle 2 sts (P2), you take the first 6 sts with yourcable needle.

You put them in front.

You knite the next 6 sts.

The 6 sts that are on the cable needlewe are going to place them on the left needle.

And we're going to knit them.

(because we are working an uneven row) purl 2 sts (P2), and I finish by kniting 8 sts (K8)and the selvedge stitch.

At the sight it looks like it's ugly, Do not worry.

Once you make 3, 4 rowseverything will look fine.

The next row it's the same as the second row.

In fact all the even ranks are like the n ° 2and all te uneven ones as n ° 1.

I'll show you a list for the twist.

We already did the twist at row n° 7.

The next twist is at row n° 17.

Between each twist, we have 9 rows.

So the next twists are at the row n°:27, 37, 47, 57, 67, and at the row n° 71 you have to cast of the sts (close).

In this way, once seewn, the twist will follow the movement.

Then we'll assemble them.

For sewing.

First of all we will sew this smallpart here.

You see, we have 2 stockinette stitches.

You have to sew at the 1st one.

You prick on this side, and you continue to sew, by grabbing the small knots of the selvedge stitches.

You look that the two parts are matching.

Do not sew too tight, or too loose.

Sew these two pieces together.

(purl with purl).

From time to time you have to skip a loopin the upper part.

You have to grab every timea stitch from here (in the stockinette stitch), with 1 loop from here.

I skip 1 stitch in the bottom partand I prick in the upper part.

You have to skip one time to time.

(the upper part is slightly larger) In this way the 2 pieces sewnwill match at the end.

You continue in this way.

(you jump a stitch from time to time in the upper part) At the end you have to make a knotand cut the thread.

Then we must sew the upper part.

You have to sew in the loopthat comes towards you.

At the end you have to make a knothide and cut the thread.

Now we're going to sew the sole.

The fold of the stockinette stitch will be sewed after.

It has to coincide.

At the end of the sewing, you have to do the knot inside the boots.

You hide and cut the thread.

Now you have to sew the stockinette stitch part.

A little knot, and we hide the thread.

Now you will sew the restof the boots.

Once there you continue to sew the twist.

The twist must coincide.

Now you have to sew the smallremaining parts.

This part must remain hollow inside, so you have to sew all around.

You must sew in the same wayhere, preserving the hole in it.

Here are the finished boots.

You can put on the boots the samecord with the pearls, the same as for the beanie.

3 Ways to Wear Moto Boots

who wants to know how to wear moto boots [Music] hi ladies it's Aaron and welcome back to my channel today I'm sharing three ways to wear your moto boots moto boots are great because number one they're functional the heel is almost always low they're usually cut a little

bit wider so they're very comfortable and functional it's a shoe it's a boot that you could walk in second they're the pair that I'm showing you today is affordable and that's always a bonus and number three they sort of edged up any look that you put on so

if you put on just a jeans and a tee or something really basic the moto boots give that overall look a little bit of edge a little cool factor you sort of check a lot of boxes the functionality affordability and the style component [Music] okay so let's talk

about look number one look number one are the motor boats the black moto boots with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans these are a pair that I've talked about over and over and over again because they're so versatile and they're so slimming and elongating thereby rag-and-bone they're

one of my favorites for sure just the go to dark wash skinny jean that I always talk about as being a wardrobe basic and then I paired that with a couple of new pieces that I got from Marc New York and they are now diving into that world

of athleisure it definitely picks up on that cool girl vibe you know it's not this is definitely not a basic so what you have is just a long-sleeve tee but it's it's a thicker tee it's almost like a sweatshirt but not quite and then it has a Python

print on it and some side slits over the long sleeve tee to stay warm is this mark New York puffer vest and it's a really cool puffer vest because it's not just black with a hood it has this really neat silver metallic lining on the inside so I

feel like that definitely gives it a little bit more of an edge as well now that we live in Colorado I wear puffers all the time and specifically puffer vests and I use puffer vest a lot for layering so I will layer a sweater with a puffer vest

over it with a puffer over that and a lot of times I'll do a coat even on top of that by the way if you've missed my layering 101 video that might be a good one to pick up and watch I'll put a link to that below all

of us I'll also put it the playlist over here so you can click on that and watch but that is where I go through like basically just the essentials of just the layering basics which is really key especially if you live in a cool [Music] so the second

look is definitely dressier I would call this elevated casual it still has a very casual feel to it but in this look you could definitely be out and about running to a meeting meeting girls for lunch or meeting your friends for lunch you could be going out to

dinner in this it definitely is dressier but because you are wearing moto boots it definitely brings what would be otherwise even dressier down a notch I paired the moto boots with another pair of dark wash skinny jeans these are slightly distressed I know a lot of you don't

like the distressed jeans so if I'm showing you distressed jeans that doesn't mean that you have to wear distressed jeans just wear your your jeans that are very similar but not distressed with with no holes this is a new top this one is by frame and it's velvet

and it's a high neck and it has a keyhole and it's just beautiful I love this blouse I just think it's such a pretty not so basic basic blouse like I'll probably wear this a ton but you see how I just love to mix that you know feminine

blouse with the like edgy boots you know and when you're wearing a masculine boot it's said that it's really nice to offset that masculinity sometimes with a more feminine option that's kind of my signature combination I love doing edgy with feminine I'll wear this all the time for

sure the last like I want to show you is the dressiest of the three looks and I think it might be my favorite because I think it's the most unexpected and the most fun and the most sort of fashion-forward it feels like you're taking a fashion risk this

is something I featured way back when I was doing editorials I mean it is a it was a long time ago when I when I was doing some editorials in San Antonio I paired moto boots with a really dressy dress on top this is definitely something you could

totally rock this fall it doesn't have to be this exact dress this is a duster dress by BB Dakota and I love this dress and you can wear over dreams like I am or you can wear it alone it could be like a floral maxi or a floral

skirt with a turtleneck or a floral skirt with a blouse and a moto jacket over that like you can play around with that combination but the idea is the same of the long maxi skirt maxi dress with those moto boots again that mix of masculine and feminine it's

just such a great look you want to be dressy you want to be pulled together polished sophisticated but also functional it's there just is no better like the boots are gonna be totally comfortable you're gonna be happy as can be you know no foot pain no hood no

problem walking around so it's just a great option to have when you know you are gonna be on your feet all day or you know you are gonna be doing a lot of walking maybe you're going to the shopping mall maybe you're meeting a bunch of people and

7 Rules To PROPERLY Match Boots With Your Outfit… & 3 BIG Mistakes To Avoid!

when you think about boots what comes to mind maybe a pair like this or maybe a pair like this mmm you smell good baby don't worry I'm gonna tell my wife about us seriously gents when it comes to boots you've got options that's rule number one gentlemen know

your options know what you've got available to you if you're playing a game and you've only got one move or you're playing on a team and you've only got one type of player you're gonna be hampered you're gonna be stale you're gonna be easy to predict and you're

not gonna win at the game of style when it comes down to boots understand guys tons of options out there so let me show you something first if we've got a classic lace boot in black what you're going to notice about this right here is it's utilitarian this

is gonna work with a wide variety of different outfits I know a lot of guys are gonna default to this and nothing wrong with that this is a great foundation boot especially if black shoes are already in your wardrobe but let's say you're not in the black shoes

you want to bring in something a bit more fun well start looking around there's tons of different options and the first option is to change up the color yes you may already have boots in this particular style but do you have them in a wide variety of colors

if you love the style you understand there's tons of different styles out there but this is your go to then don't be afraid to have some different colors especially made from different materials when I say different materials I'm talking not just about color I'm talking about different types

of leather coming from different types of animals you can even look at different cuts of the leather perhaps suede but let's also look at maybe changing up some of the style details right here notice all the sudden we've got a cap toe a small detail makes the boot

a little bit more casual but actually it grabs a bit of attention I think it's a great small detail to add onto a pair of boots now gents you're gonna see a lot of boots in today's video if you want to grab any of them go over to

Thursday boots I'm putting a link down in the description they are the sponsor of today's video and I've talked about this company for years because I believe in what they're doing they are creating amazing boots at a fair price that you can buy directly from them and guys

a pair that I owned three years and I yes I cut in half because I wanted to be able to show you guys what's inside these boots how they pay attention to the construction to the things that most people can't see so when you go in here and

you see oh they've got a shape I can see that they've got an inner leather lining and they've paid attention to all the things that matter when it comes to shoe construction and speaking of their practicality let's talk about how Thursday brings it into everything they built so

even their suede they use weatherproof suede yes guys you've got to love it when they bring in great-looking boots like this that are functional they can add a lot of dimension to your wardrobe at the same time you're gonna be able to wear them get a lot of

miles and not worry about damaging them so guys go check them out this is easily one of the best deals you're gonna find out there when it comes to shoes check out Thursday boots I'm linking to them down in the description use that link guys go check them

out such an amazing company I'm proud to support them now continuing on with options let's talk about it boots a lot of guys look over and that is the chukka the classic desert boot been around for about 70 years or at least made popular in the last 70

years this is a great looking classic boot that you can dress up you can dress down right here I could dress this down with an indigo pair of dark jeans and it would just look amazing with the texture right here in the suede now this pair of checkers

right here notices it's got the classic leather upper right here this dark brown would work great with a number of options but you can't really dress this up why because the contrasting sole right here this is gonna make it casual I know a lot of younger guys absolutely

love this look and I think it's good it's actually a very functional sole it actually has no heel so you're gonna have more surface area touching the ground now you can also bring in a bold color right here we've got a blue suede and let's look at how

there's no contrast with the sole one compared to that last one and let's look at the sole we've got a nice rubber sole so very functional it does have a heel so if you're a bit of a shorter guy this is gonna give you an extra inch and

a half and height next up we've got the classic Chelsea right here in black wear to love about this you can dress it up you can dress it down I can wear this with a suit in inclement weather I could even dress this down with a pair of

jeans but if I was going to wear jeans I would probably go with something more like this gonna provide contrast we've got the Indigo jeans with right here the textured suede that's gonna be a better look Chelsey's are great they're versatile slip them on and off when you're

going through security a great style to know now most of the style options you're gonna see out there for looks but I also like it when you've got a style option that is functional like this pair of boots right here notice we've got the zipper so guess what

you just zip down and you can slip boots off at the same time you've got the function and the overall look of the lacing if you so choose to use it point being is you have options now with this boot start right here do you notice the immediate

difference look at the height right here it's gonna be a bit shorter this is going to be a traditional five eyelet boot very simple and I know a lot of people like this style it's kind of transitions between the shoe and the boot but it's still considered a

boot and right here just a great overall look now another style option is going to be broken and that's whenever they cut small holes into the leather it's got a long history I've talked about it in other videos but understand that it looks amazing it oftentimes does increase

the price of the boot and it does make the boot a bit more casual but guys just look at the results of just beautiful pair of boots right here another functional design is the moccasin boot now why is a moccasin boot functional because it really comes down to

comfort when you look at the size and the shape of the toe box on a moccasin boot it's going to be more forgiving than a lot of other boots so if you've got boots you've got issues with your feet not fitting in the boots you may want to

try a moccasin design in addition because right here we don't have a heel we've got more surface area that's gonna touch basically the ground so if you're gonna be in my area we get you know sleet and rain in ice this is a great pair of boots for

being able to traverse that kind of condition now what if you want to look like a rock star then find a pair of boots that scream for attention or a little bit more subtle and their style sets them apart so this pair of jodhpurs right here notice right

here we just got an overall just unique look you've got that buckle right here you got a strap going around just a beautiful pair of boots I own and wear these personally I can tell you guys I have gotten compliments on these multiple times strangely enough all been

asking where do they get these boots because they want to grab them and check out this pair right here guys I've got them in brown chocolate we've got that silver ring with small bits of detail right there the hardware in the zipper functional so you can zip it

up and slip them on and off I love boots like this that really just they think a little bit more courage to wear they're a little bit more fashion-forward but when you wear boots like this you are gonna grab attention and get compliments the next boot rule you've

got to know understand is proportion so a pair of boots like this these are large proportioned boots you're not going to want to wear them with other pieces of clothing which is going to fit you really close the body so if you're gonna be wearing thin or skinny

jeans and you wear boots like this guys that is not a good combination so understand if you're gonna wear delicate boots then you can wear it more delicate clothing if you wear heavy Hardy boots understand that yes and there are delicate boots there are oftentimes boots with a

very sleek design that are still a basic boot maybe in the Chelsea a little bit more of dress boots but when you wear something that's gonna be clunky you want to wear larger pieces with it the next rule gentlemen is to understand all boots by definition are casual

so treat them as such if you want to get dressed up and wear a tux or you're to be wearing a suit understand that's the domain of shoes of Oxford's but if you really want to wear a pair of boots maybe the weather calls for it then yes

you can't pull off maybe a pair of black Chelsey's with a suit I'm not gonna say that you can't do it but in general this is gonna be something you want to be careful with even boots like this which I absolutely love the look of this is casual

now I can wear this with jeans I could wear it with jeans and a sports jacket but I wouldn't really wear this with a suit unless the weather was really bad and yeah I didn't care what anyone thought the next rule for wearing boots make sure they've got

a good supporting cast pay attention to the jeans you want to make sure that the taper the cut the style of the trousers that you're wearing whether they be jeans or odd trousers work with the boots that you buy so jeans that work with these boots right here

aren't necessarily going to work with these boots right here why it's just simply a height issue it's also going to be hey will the jeans go around again if you're wearing a slimmer cut jeans you may find they're just not gonna work with this now there are workarounds

a lot of guys they roll their jeans how do you do that guys I've got you covered with this video right here I will link to that down in the description but in that video I do talk about how to roll your jeans properly to match them with

the boots now this next point I've alluded to but understand the color of the boots the material that they're made from will have an effect on the formality now in general remember all boots are casual but these boots right here are going to be dressier than these boots

right here why simply because black is a dressier color darker colors in general will be more formal now this next rule is critical and so few guys actually do this now is take care of your investment when you buy boots we buy some polish by a brute brush

all at the same time after you wear the boots you want to wipe them down you want to brush and get rid of the dirt why you don't want that salt going in there and drying out the leather you want to remove and you want to apply it

the Polish why a layer of polish this is wax this is gonna be water-resistant it's gonna ensure that your boots last longer don't know what color to get then find a neutral polish and there are tons of other options out there if you want to get in and

condition your boots understand this is not a polish a conditioner is gonna actually enter the leather and it's gonna keep it soft and supple you only need to do that maybe once a month if you wear the boots every day or once every few months or even once

a season if you wear them onion or not really regular you can go through and you can use edge dressing on the side and the boots that's gonna keep the nice color and if you're really worried about hey I'm gonna be walking to a lot of slush through

snow then look at a snow seal look at something it's actually going to protect the boots again that layer right there of water resistant material is going to keep the water from penetrating the boots when water goes into the boots what it does is it doesn't damage it

when it enters but when it leaves and it pulls moisture out that's when it damages the boots so whether you're using mink oil and if you use something like this again remember when you're applying a material test a small portion of it on maybe the back of the

boot on the inside tongue to make sure it doesn't darken the boots because things like this will darken light color leathers and if you're worried about darkening light color leathers then look for certain silicone sprays or something in there options out there which will not penetrate the leather

but will still put a layer of protective coat on it to keep the elements at bay now this next rule is not a hard and fast one but I know a lot of guys just starting off they love these simple rules that make it easy to match everything

and that is match your leathers with your leathers so your belt your watch strap your boot if you're going to go with black then go with black all around makes it really easy to pair things to put them together but what about with boots that actually don't match

up or you maybe you go with the suede you go with a pair of bold boots don't worry as long as you get something that's closer or you feel confident with the combination now notice the combination here I didn't even think about it I've got silver and silver

oftentimes we gravitate towards blacks Browns silver because of our skin tone maybe you're a gold kind of guy so just make sure that you kind of that in the family when you're just starting off but if you're more advanced you can throw that stuff out the window and

you can put together whatever you want all right so let's talk about mistakes mistake number one is overpaying for crappy boots in fact buying crappy boots how do you identify bad quality boots because most of the time they're glued together now there are some boots out there that

are glued that it makes sense because of the construction and the way that they're going for the design of the shoe but the vast majority of high quality shoes are going to be stitched together they're going to use a Goodyear welt they're gonna use either a blake stitch

there is a difference in that construction but if you see either of these type of shoes know that you're getting in general a highly constructed high quality shoe why because it costs a lot more money and it gives the shoe the ability to be resold the next deadly

mistake buying a pair of boots that are made from an inferior material when it comes the upper if it's not leather if it's a synthetic material you want to be very careful they're not going to be as breathable and they're not going to be able to stand up

to a lot of the wear and tear that leather is capable of in addition you want to make sure you're getting tier 1 leather there is a difference between tier 1 tier 2 tier 3 and tier 4 tier 3 & 4 if you ever find boots that say

they're made from that avoid them at all cost because it comes down to being able to absorb water and be resistant to water tier 3 tier 4 and even tier 2 actually don't do a great job of repelling water naturally that's why you want to go with tier

1 boots when it comes to the leather the next deadly mistake when it comes to buying boots not paying attention to the sole so right here we've got a rubber sole a lot of people are gonna say oh you need a leather sole for high quality boots not

exactly depends on the function of the boot this is a pair of combat boots I want a rubber sole it's gonna have traction this is gonna be able to do its job which is to provide support when I'm going through the mud or out hiking now if I've

got a pair of dress boots or a pair of cross functional boots I want something that has traction but also has the leather sole this is going to be in general a sign of quality but I like that this manufacturer paid attention to you know these little details

right here so it's gonna give me a bit more traction but if I want a really dressy boot and I don't really care so much about traction then I want to go for this straight leather sole right here leather soles are oftentimes a great sign of quality why

because they're more expensive and they take a little bit more time in the construction and the build and what's the biggest mistake you can make when it comes to boots gentlemen that one's easy not wearing them guys if you need proof as to why you should wear boots

check out this video right here five ways wearing boots makes you more attractive in this video I go in your research it is a great video so go check it out guys and find out why you need to wear boots

Shine YOUR Leather Boots Like A Pro | Clean Condition & Shine Dress Boot Video

Shine YOUR Leather Boots Like A Pro CleanCondition & Shine Dress Boot Video [0:00:00]A good pair of leather boots is something every man should have in his wardrobe – rugged, functional, and stylish.

Boots are the perfect choice when the weatheroutside isn't the best, but you still want to look your best.

However, when exposed to snow, slush, andrain, even a well-made pair of boots can break down over time if not properly cared for.

In today's video, we're going to give youthe ultimate guide to caring for your boots covering how to clean, condition, and polishthem.

To start, remove the laces.

This will make it easier to clean and conditionthe boots.

Now, if the laces are dirty, just simply washthem in soapy water or you may want to upgrade and get some new ones.

Now, it's time to clean your boots.

Use a horsehair brush for this step givingthe leather a liberal buffing to remove loose dirt and salt.

Salt can damage leather and you want to makesure you give your boots a quick pass with the brush every time they've been exposedto it.

In general, it's a good idea to give yourboots a quick once-over with the cleaning brush once every week or two depending onwear.

Now that the loose dirt and salts been removedit's time to hit the boots with some saddle soap to remove any stubborn dirt or stains.

Run a damp rag over the soap until you producea light lather.

Rub the lather over the boot paying attentionto any areas that need extra scrubbing.

Now note, you don't need to do this step everytime.

This is only if you've got dirt and stainsthat won't come out with the normal buffing.

Let the boots air dry for about 10 minutesbefore moving to the next step.

Now, it's time to condition the leather.

You know the biggest danger to your bootswith water damage is that it can when the water leaves dry out and crack the leather.

Once leather has cracked, there's little tonothing you can do to save it.

Prevention is key here, gentlemen.

It's vital to provide your boots with themoisture to keep the leather supple and healthy.

The best way to give your boots moisture isto use a leather conditioner or a balm.


When applying a conditioner, a balm, a creamor any other product on your boots always test on a small spot to make sure it doesn'taffect the color of the leather.

Now, understand that it may initially darkenthe leather, but you want to see how it looks after it dries.

The tongue of the boot is always a good spotto test because it's not visible when laced up.

Use a clean rag to apply the conditioner tothe boots making sure to get in all the crevices and creases.

Wipe off any excess conditioner and allowthe boots to dry for at least 20 minutes.

You will want to condition your boots aboutonce every three months depending on wear.

If you wear these boots every single day, then you probably want to be going through this about once a month.

Also, if you live in a dry hot climate, youmay need to do this more often.

Now, if you've got a more rugged style boot, you may decide that, hey, I don't want to put a polish on it and I'm going to stop atthis step.

But, if you've got an elegant dress boot, you're going to want to make sure to give it some polish.

Now, the first option for polishing your bootis going to be a shoe cream.

These won't produce as much of a shine asa wax, but they do have the benefit of giving additional moisture and nourishment to theleather.

This could also be a good option to bringback some of the color if your boots are starting to fade.

So first off, you want to make sure that you'reusing a shoe cream that closely matches the color of your boots.

Use a small applicator brush and work thecream evenly over the entire boot.

A little goes a long way with most creams, so start off with a small amount and you can add more if needed.

After applying the cream, give the boots aquick buffing with a different horse hair brush.

Do not use the same one that you clean theboots with and let it dry for about 15 minutes.

Now, your other option for polishing yourboots is to use a wax-based polish.

A wax-based polish has the benefits of beingable to create a much nicer shine than any type of cream.

However, it's not going to go in and moisturizethe leather, but you use the conditioners.

And another added benefit of wax-based polishis it creates a thin barrier that can help protect against salt and water.

Make sure the wax polish is the final layer.

You don't want to put any cream over the wax.

Wrap a soft rag around two fingers and useit to apply the wax onto the leather using small circular motions.

Continue working until you have coated theentire boot, then let it sit while you add wax to the other boots.

With both boots complete, now you're goingto take that shining horsehair brush again not the cleaning horsehair brush and you'regoing to give the boots a good buffing to reveal the shine.

You may need to repeat this step once or eventwo more times to get a really nice-looking shine.

Now, there's no strict schedule for how oftenyou need to polish your boots.

For me, it depends on wear.

If I’m wearing them every day, I like togive a really quick polish once a day, but once a week I like to break everything downand give them a detailed polish like we talked about here.

[0:04:54]Now, you may be wondering what about waterproof sprays.

When it comes down to it the leather usedin most high-quality boots is water-resistant.

If you go through the steps I talked abouthere your shoes are going to be good to go.

If you're concerned about waterproofing, usea wax polish is I think it's one of the best options out there and you can apply it tothe boot with greater control.

However, having said all this, if you stillwant to use a water-resistant spray, go for it just make sure it's the last thing youapply.


So, what to do if your boots get soaked? We're talking they get really wet.

First, you want to give them time to air dry, but make sure not to put them next to a fire or another type of heat source.

Heat can cause the wet leather to dry tooquickly and can lead to cracking.

It's important to let the boots dry at roomtemperature.

There you go, gentlemen.

Everything you need to keep your boots lookingtheir best on whatever adventure you’d go on.

How To Buy Chukka Boots | Men's Chukkas Boot Guide | How To Wear & Style Chukka Footwear

How To Buy Chukka Boots Men's Chukkas BootGuide How To Wear & Style Chukka Footwear [0:00:00] Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno.

I'm the founder of Real Men Real Style.

Today, I'm going to be speaking with you aboutthe chukka boot.

I'm going to be talking about the history.

I'm going to talk about the features thathelp you identify a chukka boot when you're out there shopping, and I'm going to talkabout how to wear a chukka boot, how to fit it into your wardrobe.

Now, before I get into this, I want to thankPaul Evans.

Paul Evans sent me a pair of chukkas, whichI've been wearing, and I can tell you that this is a company that really pays attentionto the detail.

On this chukka boot, we've got a beautifulhandcrafted calf leather right here on the upper.

It's been blake stitched.

It's got a leather sole, handmade in Italy, all the classics, very well-made.

I've been wearing these shoes now for a coupleof weeks.

I'm very impressed with the build, so go checkout Paul Evans.

I'm going to talk about them and I'm goingto show images in the support article, but I can tell you the prices that these guysare charging — well, I've talked with the founders about this.

I think that they're undercharging and thatyou guys should go check them out before they decide to raise their prices because really, this stuff right here — and this company has been around for almost two years.

They're still trying to make their way andget the brand known out there.

I can see these guys knocking the price upbecause the quality is second to none, so go check them out, Paul Evans.

We're going to talk about the history.

Chukka, it's not “chooka”.

It's chukka.

It's a rugby term and that helps understand– it's important to understand it because it actually has a British history, a British-NorthAfrican history.

The story is that we had troops deployed duringWorld War II into North Africa.

They show up.

They've got their regular combat boots.

Now, they had come out of England.

Let's just say those boots that they had maybewere for cold weather, mud, maybe for trudging, going through France and that kind of stuff, but they were not made for the North African deserts.

They had sand issues and it was really irritatingtheir feet.

Apparently, some of the guys went over tocobblers right there in Cairo and they said, “This is what we want.

We want something that's going to fit closerto the ankle.

It's not going to allow sand in.

It's going to be lightweight so that we canmove through this environment, ” and that's where the chukka came from.

First thing, let's talk about the height ofthe chukka.

It's not going to be as high.

We're going to see it's going to come up rightand cover the ankle.

It's not going to go higher above that.

In addition, it's made to fit closer aroundthe ankle so sand doesn’t get up in there.

The original material on the upper, we wouldsee leather because leather was pretty common at that time, but we would also see suedeand variations of leather.

Now, the sole, rubber has become a lot morecommon.

And if you think about for a boot in durabilityand being able to bounce around, that's going to be in the more casual chukkas, but leathersoles are common as well especially in dress chukkas.

Now, the front part, very simple.

We're not really going to see any type ofembroidery, any type of cap toes.

You will see that occasionally, but I'm goingto say it's overall a pretty casual look.

You could notice how right here, we've gotthe attachment on the upper slap right on here.

We've got one to two eyelets.

You'll occasionally see three eyelets.

If you start to see five to six eyelets, that'sprobably more of a boot than it is a chukka.

Also, the heel, usually chukkas are goingto have shorter heels.

These weren't really for riding a horse wherewe see a lot of other boots come out of.

These are more for trudging through sand, for going on movements, and that focuses on — it really helps you understand the historyof the chukka.

We've talked about the history.

We've talked about the build and how thatgoes into it.

Now, let's start to talk about how do youwear these.

The ones I just showed you made from leatherwith the leather upper, leather lower, in a dark brown, you're going to see them inblack, maybe oxblood, those are going to look great with a sports jacket, odd trousers, with khakis, with gray flannel trouser, they're really going to look nice, but the great thingabout that is you could still wear these leathers with a dark pair of well-fitted jeans.

What does it tell you about the chukka? Incredibly versatile.

This is not going to be something though thatyou're going to want to wear with a suit.

You could pull it off with a suit.

I think the reason you can do that especiallyif you have a plain lower is that this would be covered — if you're wearing these — let'ssay you have a black pair or you're wearing this with a navy and you're wearing it withthe browns, you could probably pull this off in the United States especially maybe in smallertowns.

However, if you're in a larger city like NewYork or London, I'm going to recommend you don’t do that.

A lot of that plays to the casual nature ofthe chukka.

Now, we've also talked about suede.

You're going to see chukkas in gray suede, tan, and tan was the original color of the boot.

So when you see something like that, that'sgoing to be more casual.

It's going to be harder to wear with dressslacks or anything like that, but it's going to be perfect for jeans especially if youdecide to go with lighter color jeans or jeans that are a little bit distressed.

You could still pull off a pair of chukkaswith them.

[0:05:00] All right, guys, what do you think? Let me know in the comments down below hereon YouTube and go check out Paul Evans.

I've created an entire article — I thinkwell over a thousand words.

I go into a lot more detail about the chukkaboot with tons of images.

Go check it out.

It's going to be over at Real Men Real Style.

I'll see you in the next video.

Take care.

Cutting Expensive Dress Boots In Half? (What's INSIDE Thursday Boots)

What's Inside Expensive Boots [0:00:01]They’re too strong for the saw! All right, gentlemen, in today’s video, I'm cutting in half this beautiful pair of expensive high-end boots so that I can teachyou guys what to look for, what's inside a great pair of boots.

Now, to be perfectly transparent, I'm notgonna cut in half this pair right here.


These are brand new.

Nolan, the CEO over at Thursday Boots, justsent them to me.

He agreed to this video and thought it wasa great idea.

I’m like “Sure.

I'll talk a little bit about Thursday andeverything that goes into these.

” But guys, the pair I am cutting in half aremy old pair of Thursday Boots, which I've had for 3 years.

And it's sad.

But yes, these boots, we’re gonna cut ‘emin half.

We’re gonna find out what is inside a pairof high quality Goodyear welted boots.

You’re ready guys? Let’s do it.

All right, gentlemen, it’s okay.

Get emotional.

We're about to do it.

We’re about to cut these beautiful pairof boots in half.


Somewhere someplace angels are crying.

Let's find out what's inside.

They’re too strong for the saw! All right.

So, round 2.

These boots too tough for the saw.

Let’s give it another shot.

Too tough.

Now, this is just getting embarrassing.

I think I got smoke coming out of this saw.

These boots are amazing! It’s smoking! Gentlemen, let’s give some respect to theseboots.

I mean, these things did not go down withouta fight.

They may have destroyed my saw here.

No, I don’t think they did, but that waspretty cool.

All right, gentlemen, so the deed is done.

Now, let’s talk about what’s inside ofa good pair of boots.

All right.

So, let’s go ahead and get into these high-endboots and what we found on the inside.

So, when I look up at the tongue, the tongueon a pair of boots, this is going to be what protects for your foot from the laces.

It’s going to be where the quarter and thevamp— This is the part right over here on the upper.

It’s going to basically move up.

But when I’m looking at the built overallof this tongue, great.

And the leather on these boots, this is reallygood leather.

Very thick.

And I'm very happy to see that they used agood letter.

This is why these boots are gonna hold upso long.

When you take care of a great thick leatherlike this and if you treat the leather, you condition it, you polish it, you take careof it, it’s gonna be able to come back.

So now, as we go down and we get towards wherethe upper meets the outsole, what we’re gonna notice is that there’s a welt.

This makes sense.

This is a Goodyear welted pair of boots.

The cool thing about a Goodyear welt is it'sgonna be the most water resistant of all the built.

Nothing against a Blake stitch, but a Blakestitch is gonna be done on the inside of the shoe and it does open it up to a little bitof water penetration, but a Goodyear welt are going to do a much better job becauseit brings in that extra layer, which is the welt.

And the welt is basically going to be whatconnects that upper to the outsole.

All right.

So, speaking about soles, let’s go aheadand talk about the outsoles here on these boots going down the length of the boot.

I’m gonna notice that the outsole here we’vegot 2 layers of rubber.

They’re stitched together on the outsideusing that Goodyear welt.

On the inside, I can notice they do have alittle bit of an adhesive, which I understand why they would have that there, but the stitchingis really the key that keeps it together.

Now, if we go look at the heel, one thingI want you to notice here and you’re gonna have to look really careful, notice that thattack that goes all the way down.

[0:05:00]Tack, nails.

Basically, you’ve got a piece of metal that, as they were building this together, it was nailed all the way through.

Now, I know that they're gonna use an adhesiveto keep together these layers as well, but this right here is all made out of leather.

So, the heel, we’ve got 1, 2, 3, 4.

4 layers right there of leather and then alarger thick layer of rubber which looks like it's attached with both the tack and an adhesive.

So, that’s really nice.

And you got multiple tacks over on the side.

So, a great job with the construction.

In fact, as I’m pulling on this and pulling, I can’t actually pull this apart at all.

So, great construction there.

Now, as we move up from the heel and we startto go back up through the outer sole, then all of a sudden we look that they’ve gota lining.

These guys use a classic cork lining.

And I can tell you that some of the best shoecompanies out there are using cork linings.

Cork over time is going to conform to yourfoot.

And then I’m gonna go ahead and let's lookat the shank.

So, we do have a shank here.

It goes about halfway down the boot.

Now, moving up above the shank, we’re gonnanotice this white layer right here and it goes all the way down the length.

I'm looking at this.

It actually doesn't have much give.

So, I'm not thinking that this is a cushion.


Actually, I'm thinking that this is weatherprotection from the elements.

So, basically, it's gonna protect your outersole and then it's gonna protect the insole.

And that's the next piece we've got.

So, the insole is gonna be that flat protectivepiece right there that has a little bit of cushion on it.

But most importantly, it’s gets there forsweat absorption.

So, your feet will sweat and this is righthere to absorb that sweat and then basically, you know, over time when you're not wearingthe boots, usually you wanna give them a day of rest.

That’s when that sweat is just going tobasically, you know, kind of find its way out.

Now, let's look at the stitching.

So, the stitching is straight and I see about12 stitches per inch.

That's great.

14 stitches.

You’re gonna see that on really high-endshoes.

So, when we look at the heel right above it—I'm gonna look in the back.

I see they've got a white stiffener.

This isn’t going to go all the way backup.

It goes up it looks like about 2 inches.

And what I noticed about this stiffener, thisone actually is pretty stiff, which is good.

You want that on a pair of boots.

That's gonna ensure and maintain the shapeof the back heel.

So, understand when you're buying a qualitypair, what you're paying for are those extra layers, the fact that you're not gonna havea hollow heel, the fact that you're gonna have all these things put together and basicallyadhering to each other in various ways so that these boots are gonna last you a lifetime.

And that's what you're looking for.

How $3,000 Custom Cowboy Boots Are Made | Master Craft

Joe Avella: Lee Milleris a master boot maker.

He makes hundreds ofpairs of boots each year in his Austin shop, Texas Traditions.

Lee Miller: A lot of peoplethink that their running shoes are the most comfortable things they own.

This is more comfortable.

I own running shoes, and my boots feel betterthan my running shoes.

And I buy good running shoes.

Joe: They start at $3, 000.

The wait list is so long it takes four years to get a pair.

These better be the best boots ever.

Lyle Lovett, Harry Connick Jr.

, Willie Nelson, they all got a pair.

I have no opinion on those two other guys, but Willie Nelson is a legend.

So, why so much, and whydo they take so long? Lee takes his time handcrafting each pair, using old boot-makingtechniques and traditions passed on to him by another boot-making legend, Charlie Dunn.

Lee: Handmade boots are quite different than a store-bought boot.

So, everything from the last, which is the shape thatthe boot is made on, to all the differentmethods of construction, we're kinda like the Ferrari.

You know, everything here is done by hand.

Some methods go all the way back to the days of the Roman Empire.

So, unlike factory-made boots, Lee is dedicated to the finest standards.

To get a pair, you have tovisit Lee's shop in Austin.

Lee: Everybody has sat onthis throne.


That's where Miss Bacall sat.

Gary Hart was running for president.

He sat here.

Slim Pickens, Tommy Lee Jones came in.

He sat here.

That was 1989.

Joe: Lee starts bycreating a foot blueprint using a pedograph.

The ink imprint giveshim an accurate picture of the arch shape andpositioning of the toes, which he will use to build a custom last.

A last is a form shapedlike the customer's foot that Lee can use to build the boot around.

Lee: And I would takemeasurements with a tape measurer to give me circumference.

The whole process takes 20 minutes.

Joe: Customers work withLee on the boot design, picking specific elements they want, including leather, color, toe style, and heel.

Texas Traditions has a wide variety of leathers to choose from.

I didn't know there wasvarieties of leather.

Lee: So, we have leatherhere from all over the world.

This is from Italy.

This is kangaroo skins.

It's very, very strong.

Makes a wonderful pair of boots.

So we use a lot of kangaroo.

This is bull hide from Spain.

We use a lot of pigskin, and pigskin is incredibly tough.

Water buffalo.

This is French calf here.

We use, of course, alligator and crocodile.

This is white alligator.

Let's look at some ostrich.

It's a product of South Africa.

Here's some gray ostrich here.

So, I would say that this is the oldest leather in the world.

This is a Russian reindeerfrom St.


It was tanned in 1786, but this was on a ship that sunk off the coast of England in 1786.

And for 200 years it laidat the bottom of the sea, till they found it in 1986.

Had been covered with black mud, preserving the leather.

So this leather, even thoughit was tanned in 1786, it's still very usable.

It's now extremely hard to get.

Joe: Once the last is made, Lee attaches a leather insole.

He nails down the insole temporarily and trims it into shape.

Lee: This is a German pit-tanned leather, specifically made for insoles.

And this is an insole.

Joe: Meanwhile, the teamdesigns the four panels of the top part of the boot by cutting out the detailsand stitching them together.

Lee: We'll cut out allthe different pieces.

The foot portion will be crimped, and little by little we'll just start doing all the fancy stitching and making any details.

Joe: He then stretchesthe top part over the last and temporarily tacks it into place.

Another distinction thatsets his process apart from mass-produced boots is how the team attaches the soles.

Lee: We'll start hand-sewing, and then you'll notice, as we put the soles on, we're using wooden pegs.

And the wooden pegs go allthe way underneath the heel.

That's something that you'llsee in a handmade boot, not in a factory boot, where they'll just nail it.

If you notice the incredibly fat shank, underneath it is a techniquethat the Romans used, which was taking a nailand laying it in there, and that makes it rigid, and it also makes it humpy.

Joe: He hand-sews a small rim of leather known as a welt to the rim of the boot, allowing the sole to be attached.

And now they're ready tobe polished and buffed.

Lee: The standard handmade boot takes about 40 hours to make.

It can take a lot longer, looking at some of the detail that we do.

You know, if it's a fairlysimple boot, 40 hours.

But if it's a very complicated boot, it might take you 60 or 80 hours.

Joe: Lee makes boots for anyone.

That is, anyone with a fewthousand dollars to spare.

Depending on your design, stitching, and leather choices, it can really start to add up.

Lee: Crocodile is themost expensive leather that we offer, and so a boot like this would probably start at $5, 000.

Joe: Before Lee tookover Texas Traditions, it was run by boot-makinglegend Charlie Dunn.

He's known as the”Michelangelo of cowboy boots.

” Lee: I think it was 1973.

Somebody said, “Hey, yougotta hear this song.

Jerry Jeff Walker wrote asong about a boot maker, and his name is Charlie Dunn.

” ♪ Charlie done the bootsthat are on my feet ♪ Joe: In November of 1977, Lee went to work as anapprentice for Charlie.

Lee worked alongside himuntil his retirement in 1986.

Lee and his wife, CarrlynMiller, took over the business.

Today, Lee and his team are keeping Charlie's boot-makingtraditions alive and well.

Boots are one of the easiest very simple to take your existing casual styletake it up to another level by introducing the right pair of boots.

And, what I mean right, guys, I�m goingto give you six points to look at when you�re going out there to purchase a pairof boots so you can get the right boots for you.

in addition, I�m going to give you a few outfitscenarios so that you can, you know, think of, okay, I�m already wearing this.

It would be very easy to incorporate one ofthe sample boots I�ve got here.

Now, everything here is from JL Rocha andI want you to go check them out right over here.

Guys, this is a one hundred-year old companydown in Leon, Mexico.

I�ve known them for years.

I�ve been wearing their gear, wearing theirboots and I love them and Jose Luis, a good friend, good company.

Go check them out.

So, let�s start off with how simple of anupgrade this is going to be.

Men reach out to me all the time, they�re like, �Antonio, I don�treally, you know, I�m a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy.

I�m already or I�ve already got my style downand I like to wear casual suits.

How can I take it to the next level?� Boots are such an easy upgrade because youtake your existing footwear and you just simply replace it with a stylish pair of boots becausethey�re going to work with a casual suit.

They�re going to work with jeans and a t-shirt.

So, now, I�m going to get into the six points, the six key things that you need to be looking for whenyou�re going out there and you�re finding the right pair for you.

And that�s the key, guys, is you need to find the right pair for you.

You do that by understanding what do you need for your lifestyle, what do you need for your needs.

You want to find the right pair that�s going to suityou and that�s going to make you feel like a million bucks.

So, let�s start off with the western boot.

The western boot, I�ve covered I�ve got an entire infographics on this.

I�m going to linkto it down in the details, but this is something that�s very regional.

It�s very noticeable, very stylish, but something that you need to know how to wear and, guys, go check out I�ve got an entireinfographic on this.

I�m not going to spend much time on that one or the chukka.

Now, I love thechukka, it�s a great boot, but I�ve got an entire video an entire article on this.

I�ll link toit down in the � the description down below, but it�s a great style so if you don�t have this, considerit.

Now, I�m going to dive into the Chelsea.

This is one I�ve never covered before, but is actually one of my personal favorite and there�sa couple of reasons why.

When I travel I love how it slips on and off.

You�ll notice that thisparticular design, it�s go a bit of elastic right here, nothing really that you�ve got to lace up or down, so when I�m going to security, I love it.

But, it actually has � it goes back about fifty or seventyyears.

It was made popular by the Beatles.

They love this design.

And, really, I just find it�svery elegant.

I can wear it with a suit.

I�ve also worn this with a button up and jeans.

You can dressit up dress it down.

A very I would say versatile design that I personally love.

Now, let�s talk about the high lace-up boot.

Now, this is something there�s two different places where it�s came from and it has a militaryhistory coming out of the combat boot.

We also have seen other designs where they�ve come outof the dress shoe in particular the chukka, but how the chukka you notice it�s an ankle bootand it doesn�t go very high.

This boot right here is going to go up much higher.

What this means is it�sgoing to give you more support, it also means you�re going to have to lace it up a bitmore so it�s going to be harder to get off harder to get, you know, to take off or put on.

But, whenit comes down to it, I think it will be one of the most stylist boots out there, I just find thatthis is one that works great in my casual wardrobe.

So, we talked about style, now let�s talkabout silhouettes.

Silhouette is going to be the outline of the shoe.

Sounds pretty simple, but itmakes a big difference.

Understand and let me just show you really quick.

So, let�s look atthese two shoes right here.

You see that? Both of these are ankle boots, both of these are chukkas.

However, one of them is � has a much clunkier, therefore much more casual actual design.

While this one right here, much more delicate and much more cleaner and therefore, is goingto be dressier.

So, the silhouette makes a big differenceof what you can wear.

When it�s a more streamlined and simple and delicate silhouette, it�sgoing to be dressier and worn dressed up, but if it�s going to have those clunkier lines like avery thick heel very blunt toe, then that�s going to be something it�s going to be much more casual.

So, now, the color of your boot.

The colorof the boot is going to make a big difference.

Something like this it�s a beautiful elegantdesign, but the � and assume that it wasn�t suede, let�s assume that this was just a regularleather right here very smooth, because of the color, it�s always going to be casual.

While thisone right here, it�s actually the same exact design pretty much the same boot just in a darkercolor.

This one right here is going to be dressier, so usually the darker, anything that�s goingto be the solid black made from leather can actually in many cases be worn with a suit.

The darkerthe boot usually the dressier it�s going to be.

[0:04:59] 3 Next, let�s talk about the upper material.

So, by default you could just fall to a great beautiful leather like this.

I think you can�t gowrong with this.

And if it�s your first pair of boots, why not go with something dark, go with somethingthat is a very simple cut something that you can dress up something that you can dress downis going to be versatile.

But, if this is maybe your second pair of boots or you really want tostep up your style, you want to look at suede.

Suede, a lot of guys stay away from, they�re justscared of the maintenance, but understand, gentlemen when you bring something like thisin your wardrobe, you�re going to take care of it, you�re going to feel great when you wearit you�re going to get compliments and that�s what we�re shooting for here, for you to getcompliments and for you to feel like a million bucks.

Next, let�s talk about the sole material.

So, you�re going to see leather and you�re going to see rubber.

The reason leather is so popular isleather soles are great indicator of quality.

If a manufacturer spent the time and spent themoney with the materials to have a leather sole, you pretty much know that he spent money elsewhere.

So, that�s one of the reasons it�s so highly priced.

The problem with a leathersole is it doesn�t have much traction especially at the beginning.

So, if you�re looking for a boot, make � and you want to make sure it has traction, you had issues slipping or you know you livein a part of the country where you�re going to get weather where it�s going to be slick, youwant to find a rubber sole or if you get a leather sole, you want to get a rubber sole attached onit.

It�s usually not that expensive.

There are even some kits, I�ll link you down in the descriptionin the video, I�ll put a link to a kit that you can actually get.

But, I personally love these pair of bootsbecause and, here are the ones I�ve been wearing.

I�ve been wearing this for about six months.

Ilove them.

I little bit different style, but as you can tell I�ve already started wearing into this.

But, I wore this through Wisconsin winter, they worked out very well, gave me great traction.

And, that is what you want to pay attention to when it comes to the sole.

The final point that you want to pay attentionto when you�re looking for that perfect pair of boots is the styling details.

And what doI mean by that? Guys, I�m talking about straps, I�m talking about buckles.

Those little thingsthat add a bit more � a bit more style to the boot.

They are small things because I mean look at thispair right here.

This looks great, I can probably very simple, got a little bit of contrast stitchingon it.

But then, this pair right here, not only does it have the contrast stitching, but it�s goingto have the wingtip right here, it�s going to have a bit of broguing in it.

This pair right here, lookat that we�ve got, again, the wingtip, we�ve got the broguing.

A broguing is going to be the cuttinginto the leather and the design.

The contrast stitching actually doesn�t stand out toomuch.

So, you can see that there are many different ways to get to the same place.

All right.

So, I promise an outfit ideas andI�m going to deliver on that.

Now, I know many of you guys like to wear khaki trousers with a bluebutton-up shirt.

The problem there is that almost every guy loves that outfit at least in youroffice.

So, you�re looking around and it�s like everyone is wearing about the same thing, how do you up that style? Well, I always recommend you take your clothing and get itadjusted, fitted by a tailor, but you could also 4 bring in these pair of boots right here.

Bringin a pair of suede, the contrast stitching, the wingtip.

I think this would really up thatlook.

You could also bring in, you know, these gray ones right here.

Gray, a very underused color.

A little about gray is it�s not black, it�s still a non- color, so that you can wear it with a widevariety of other pieces.

So you could wear it with pretty much any sports jacket you have inyour wardrobe.

You can wear it with blue jeans, you can wear it with black slacks, you can wearit with brown slacks.

It will work with pretty much any pair of trousers.

Outfit idea number two.

Dark jeans, lightblue button-up shirt, sports jacket, and instead of pair of dress shoes, you bring in right here theselace-up dress boots with a rubber sole.

And, the great thing about this is at night you�retaking your wife out, starts to rain, you have a bit more traction when you�re walking around.

Youstill look great, but you give off a much more I would say, you know, this right here, it�s a casualmasculine feel and a lot better than those dress shoes that you would have been sliding allover the place.

Outfit upgrade number three.

You�ve gotyour favorite casual blue suit.

You usually wear this with your double monk straps.

It�s a greatlook, but you want to change it up especially since you�ve had people, you know, complimentingyou on this, they know that suit, it�s one of your favorites.

Well, guys, look to get complimentsnow on your beautiful clean designed Chelsea boots or even take that up a notch, bringin suede.

All of a sudden, people are no longer complimenting you on the suit which stilllooks great, but they�re starting to notice your shoes and say great things about them.

All right, gentlemen, that�s it.

Hopefullyyou enjoy this video.

I enjoyed putting it together.

Now, the mystery of the leather jacket.

Whyam I wearing this? Guys, it�s tied to these boots, tied to these boots, tied to this beautifulpiece of luggage, tied to this beautiful piece of luggage.

What else do I have here? Some beautifulbackpacks.

The point is all of this was made in Leon, Mexico.

My friend, Jose Luis, he�smaking some amazing stuff there, JL Rocha.

I want you to go check them out.

Be specific, tell me exactly the item why you like it, how it�s going to look greatin your wardrobe.

Gentlemen, and I�m going to be sending somebodyhere in the next couple of weeks, somebody is going to winning maybe more than one person.

You can pin roll your jeans and to learn howto do that, please watch this video.

It's a boot that pairs well with corduroyswhen it's cold outside during fall/winter, or with khakis when it's warmer outside.

It's also great for men who like a soft bootbecause the leather is usually unlined and extremely comfortable.

Since these boots are much shorter than others, you can see your socks and it pays to have some interesting combinations to just upgradeyour outfit especially when you pin roll jeans.

For a selection of socks that look fantasticwith chukka boots, please click here.

Overall, it's a boot that can be dressed downwith all kinds of casual wear and even with a not so formal suit or combination, it looksstunning.

So what colors should you go for? If it's your very first boot, I suggest yougo with a dark brown, a choco brown, or a mid brown because it's most versatile.

If you already have boots in those colorsin your closet, suggest you go with something lighter which is sand because it underlinesthe casual character of the boot and it just gives you more versatility.

Who's this boot not for? If you wear a lot of suits, it's not the bootfor you because it's very suited to casual outfits.

Also, if you like formal wear, be it a strollersuit or a morning wear or tuxedos, not the right boot for you.

It's not great for the colder times of theyear because it's unlined and it doesn't insulate very well.

Next up are Jodhpur boots.

Personally, I like them a lot because theyhave a very clean, elegant silhouette yet, they have some history.

The characteristic of Jodhpurs is the buckleand it goes around.

There are lots of variations of it.

Originally, it comes from horseback ridingand Indian heritage just like many other menswear garments and boots or shoes.

To learn more about that, please check outour full-fledged guide here.

So, who's the Jodhpur boot for? I think it works really well with casual suits, flannel suits, and sport coat combinations.

You can also pair it with a leather jacketor jeans, or chinos.

Because there's no broguing and it's a flatboot, you can also pair them with a regular suit.

It's great for men who like clean, classic, elegant lines and you don't just want to buy a boot anybody else has.

So what color should you go for with a Jodhpurboot? Ideally, a mid brown or something lighter, maybe tan, works best and it's most versatile.

So who is this boot not for? If you're in a hurry and you don't have thetime to buckle the boot every time and take it off, it's not a boot you should go for.

Otherwise, it's a great boot to have in yourcollection.

Next up are Chelsea boots.

Chelsea boots have become a timeless classicbecause they have that insert and it's easily recognizable especially if you have a coloredinsert just like here.

You guessed it, if you want to learn moreabout this boot, please check out our full-fledged guide here.

So who are the Chelsea boots for? They're perfect for men who look for a convenient, easy slip on version of the boot.

Even though they're quick to put on, theyare super elegant and classy and don't look sloppy at all.

They're also great for eccetnrics becauseyou can add green, red, or blue inserts that really give you a personal note.

They're also great for men who want theirvery first boot that is quite versatile that can be worn with suits or casually and youcan adapt it to your needs based on if you need a cap-toe or not, broguing or not, andso you can find exactly what you need.

In what color and what style should you geta Chelsea boot? Well, that depends a little bit on what youalready have.

If it's your very first boot, I suggest yougo with something darker, maybe dark brown, or chocolate brown.

You can have some broguing like a medallion, with a cap toe is good because it's not too casual and not too formal but can be pairedwith a lot of things.

If you like to wear suits int he evening, you may consider black Chelsea boots.

If you already have a few boots in your closet, you can consider getting a little more out there and having maybe a suede Chelsea bootin brown, tan, burgundy, or even blue.

So who are the Chelsea boos not for? Actually, I believe every man should haveat least one Chelsea boot in their wardrobe because they are so timeless, versatile, andeasy to use.

Next up is the balmoral boot.

It's a classic dress boot that works wellwith formal outfits and of course, we have an in-depth guide here.

So, who is the balmoral boot for? It's basically the choice of elegant gentlemenwho want something like an oxford shoe as a boot version.

It's a fantastic boot if you have lots offormal outfits in charcoal, navy, and grey.

It's also fantastic with three-piece suitsor you can wear it with a morning coat, or with a stroller suit.

If you live in a moderate climate, it's aperfect boot for winter because it's warm enough and always very elegant.

So, what colors should you go with? I suggest you start with black with blacksuede insert.

If you are more advanced, you can have a contrastinginsert in beige or buff or off-white and if you have that, you can move on to somethingin brown, burgundy, or other colors.

It's a great alternative for a button bootespecially if you're not quite sure about the whole buttoning process and it's a littlemore subdued.

So, who is it not for? It's not for people who like country outfits, who like to wear tweed, chinos, browns, and corduroys because it's just too formal forthose kinds of outfits.

Luckily, there are lots of other options.

Next up, let's talk about men's winter boots.

If you live in a climate where it gets closeto freezing outside, you need winter boots.

They may just look like regular boots butthey have a wonderful fur lining.

With fur, I usually mean sheepskin or lambskin.

It's quite plush and insulating and cozy warmespecially if you're outside a lot when it gets cold.

Of course, there's lots of ugly boots in polyesterbut as an elegant gentleman who wears a suit, those kind of boots would ruin your entireoutfit.

For added traction, those boots should alwayshave a rubber sole.

Obviously, they come in different styles.

If you are more of a casual guy, get themin tan, if you're more into suits, you should go with this version that's kind of a balmoral, it's just like an oxford but with the fur lining that keeps you warm.

Who is it for? It's for every man who likes warm feet anddoes not want to sacrifice style.

So who is it not for? Winter boots are a high budget item and theyare much harder to find so if you live in warmer climates or you're never outside forlonger than 5 minutes, you can skip them otherwise, I strongly suggest you invest in one of them.

To learn what boot we recommend specifically, please check out our in-depth guide here as well as the others I mentioned before.

No matter what boots you buy, one item thatyou should invest in is a shoe horn.

What you can see here is actually a real buffalohorn.

For boots, it's more important than for shoesbecause it's much taller.

So if you go in without a shoe horn, you'lldamage the shoe and it'll wear out much more quickly.

That being said, most boots would only comewith black or brown shoelaces.

While that works, it doesn't give you muchversatility.

That's why we offer more than a dozen differentboot laces in different colors because with investment of a few bucks, you can changethe entire look of your shoe and your outfit.

This comes particularly handy when you'rejust starting out and you have enough money for one boot.

if you invest in five or sixdifferent pairs of laces, it creates a different look and people may think you have a differentboot even though it's the same just with different shoelaces.

You can get our boot laces here and our shoehorns here.

We offer them in three sizes, long like thisone, medium, and travel size.

Now, these are just five basic men's bootsthat I think should be the first five every man should invest in.

Once you have those, there are a lot moreboots out there including button boots.

We'll cover all of those in another video.

So stay tuned! To get that next boot video right to yourinbox, please sign up to our free newsletter here.


3 Ways to Wear Sexy Over-the-Knee Boots

– Who needs help styling thoseover the knee boots, do you? Today I'm gonna show you three ways to wear those sexy boots.

(soft upbeat music) Hi ladies, it's Erin, and welcome back to my channel.

Today I wanna share with you three ways to wear over the knee boots.

Over the knee bootsare still going strong.

I feel like it's beenhappening for a decade.

Like I feel like over the knee boots have been on trend for a decade.

I remember buying my first pair back in like 2006 or 2005.

That's well over a decade ago.

And, you know what? They're not showing anysigns of slowing down.

So a lot of you wouldask about styling them and I thought it would beworthwhile to do a video to show you some options this year.

I did do a video last year styling your over theknee boots a few ways.

And I will put a link to that below in the description box.

So if you want even more ideas, there's gonna be morein that video as well.

Before we dive into the looks, I just wanna say over theknee boots are very sexy.

I did just do a video on waysto dress sexy at any age, and I did not mention over the knee boots.

I feel like over the knee boots are definitely a greataddition to that video.

By the way if you missed that video, I'll put a link to it below.

But if you want to dressin a way that's sexy but also age appropriate, I feel like this is agreat way to go about it as long as you style them tastefully and you don't take it too far, because let's face it, they do walk that fine line between classy and trashy.

So I'm gonna show you threeways that you can style them that will definitely keepyou on the classy side.

The first two looks I'm gonna show you are on the casual side, and then the last one is dressier.

They're all pretty dressy just because of the nature of the boots.

They're inherently sexy and dressy.

So it's just something to think about.

It's all basically elevatedcasual or on that level.

(soft music) The first look is a off-white turtleneck, a very lightweight off-white turtleneck that's great for layering, underneath a long gray cashmere cardigan.

And I love the way that the cardigan really downplays thesexiness of the boots.

So you still have your legs peeping out with that over the knee boot that creates that very sexy look, but then the cardigan kindof brings it down a notch and makes it much morewearable for daytime or for whatever function youmay have going on in your life.

And I feel like this againis the most versatile, most wearable, easiest, fail-safe outfit option for those over the knee boots.

I paired them with somedark wash skinny jeans.

Notice they're pretty dark, there's no fading, there's no distressing.

That's gonna keep the line looking longer, and also again justkeeping it the overall look a little bit more polishedand sophisticated.

I feel like when you start doing like a lighter jean or a light blue jean, that creates more contrast in the look and it sort of chopsup the line a bit more.

So I would go with the dark wash jean, not necessarily black, because you still wanna see the boots.

You don't want them to totally blend and that's why I strategicallypicked the dark blue.

(soft upbeat music) Look number two is a bit more sporty, also casual, also very wearable, not quite as versatile as the first one, but it's just a black top.

This is a very sporty top with the racing stripes at the neck and at the sleeve.

This one's by J.


A and it has the zip at the top.

But you can easily swap this top for whatever black top that you have in your closet, whether that's a black crew-neck sweater, whether it's a black turtleneck, whether it's a black boat blouse, whether it's a black sheer blouse.

Whatever you have in your closet already, you can easily pull that out and recreate the same exact look.

It might have a slightly different feel but it's the same over all concept.

So that's sporty black top or that black top or black blouse with the dark wash skinny jeans and the over the knee boots.

These over the knee boots, by the way, are by Stuart Weitzman, and the style is called Elevated.

So they do have like a two-inch heel.

It's not the complete flat like the Lowland boots.

It's got a little bit of a heel, but it still feels like a very wearable manageable functional heel.

It's not a crazy heel at all.

And of course the chunky heel makes them so much easier to walk in.

And the other thing Ilike about this heel style is that if it were moreof a traditional heel like a stiletto or a real high heel, that creates an even sexier look.

When you want to makethese boots more wearable, do opt for a pair that's either a pair of flats or has a chunky heel like the boots that I am showing you here.

The Elevated StuartWeitzman's, they do stay up.

There's a couple oftimes throughout the day where I may have to adjust them, but they do stay up.

And I do find that theseStuart Weitzman stay up much much better than any kind of dupe.

So unfortunately I used tohave a Steve Madden pair.

I got rid of them becausethey were just to me, that was too annoying tohave to yank them up all day.

So it's just something to think about.

It might be worth investing a bit more in this style of boot if you're really drawn to this style in order to have them stay up because otherwise you're gonna deal with the yanking all day.

At least that's what I found with the dupes of the over the knee boots.

There are plenty of over the knee boots that aren't necessarily this high, and you can go that route where they're just like slightly over the knee and they stay up a little bit better.

That could be an option too.

And I'll put a couple suggestions below in the box for you guys.

But the Stuart Weitzman Elevated are incredibly comfortable.

I really love them.

(soft upbeat music) The last look I wanted to show you is something a little bit dressier.

And I wanted to show you these boots with a dress because I felt like that was an important thing to show everybody.

So this is a sweater dress.

It's by Free People.

It has long sleeves.

It has a turtleneck.

It's a very fitted dress but not super fitted, more body-skimming versus body-hugging.

And so I feel like it does have coverage and forgiveness which sort of downplaysthe sexy a little bit, but it is on the shorter side, so then that does createmore of a sexy feel.

If you wanted to downplay that even more or make it even more conservative, you could easily do tights with this and it would create a longer line and it would also maybe makeyou feel more comfortable if you're feeling like this isa little too risque for you.

But another option might be like a floral skirt, a pleated skirt.

I would probably notdo a midi length skirt or a maxi length skirt with these boots because it sort ofdefeats the whole purpose of wearing the boots in the first place.

You wanna show these off because they are so cool and edgy and modern and sexy.

So I would go with something that is a little bit on the shorter side, maybe just past mid-thigh, somewhere between mid-thigh and just past the knee, and in that way you're really getting that look of the boot.

And that's something to think about too.

Like if you're wearing these boots, you really wanna show them off, don't wear something super long, dress or skirt-wise, because then you're just covering them up.

I didn't wanna give youthat one dress option, but again just pull out a dress you have in your closet already, maybe you have a littlebud dress that you have that is on the shorter side that you can wear with these boots, and it's gonna look amazing.

One note about tights, and I'll probably talkabout these more coming up, but with tights this season I really prefer to wear a slightly sheer tight with a pattern.

I like patterned tights so much.

I feel like they're justso cool and so lovely and they add so much pop to your look but without breaking up the line, and then the sheernesswill create contrast.

So if you do have a cool pair of boots on, you can still see the boots which is what you want.

'Cause if you wear that super thick dark black tight or legging, again what's the point of the boots? Like you might as well just wear the legging all the way down and then wear a cute little ankle bootie and call it a day.

Like if you're gonna wear killer boots, make sure you let them shine.

That's the whole point of the over the knee boot.

Let them shine.

The outfit is built around those boots and not the other way around.

So I hope that helps you guys and gives you some ideas for those over the knee boots.

I'll put links toeverything that I featured below in the descriptionbox if you're interested.

But if not, just recreate these same looks with pieces you alreadyhave in your closet.

Easy enough to do withthese basics I feel like.

5 Reasons Boots Make You More Attractive! | RMRS Style Videos

5 Reasons Why Boots Make You More Attractive! [0:00:00]So, there’s this Hollywood story of actor Russell Crowe hanging out with producer JerryBruckheimer at a party.

They’re doing pretty well.

Russell has got women all over him until hetakes off his boots, loses three inches of height and immediately Jerry’s like, “Getyour boots back on.

Man, you’re messing up your image.

” Is the story true? I don’t know.

But, what I will attest to is the power ofboots.

In today’s video, gents, why boots makeyou more attractive and why every man needs a pair in his wardrobe.

[Music]Reason number one that every man needs a pair of boots in his wardrobe, women absolutelylove boots.

I’m supporting this with a 2016 study ata GQ Magazine.

They actually did in-depth interviews withover two hundred women asking them what they look for in a man, specific details when itcomes to style and grooming.

76% of women said they wanted to see a manwear casual boots on a first date.

What does that tell you? Guys, don’t – don’t you shoot yourselfthe foot.

Wear the casual boots, women absolutely lovethem.

So, we’ve established that women like boots, but why do they like boots? Guys, it comes down to association and status.

Let’s look at history.

Five hundred years back, military officers.

Two hundred years back, if you were a footsoldier you couldn’t afford boots.

You can barely afford shoes.

Boots were always reserve for officers, menof status men of power.

Even now modern days, we see a guy he’sgoing to be an explorer, we see a guy that’s joining the military, what are they wearing? Boots.

And now, let’s think about rock stars.

If you can imagine a rock star, he’s upon stage, he is breaking rules, he is commanding respect.

What is he wearing? He’s probably – he’s not going to bewearing dress shoes.

I like dress shoes, but he is going to bewearing a pair of boots.

Guys, it’s all about setting yourself apart, it’s all about status.

Now, gentlemen, all the boots you’re seeingin today’s video, brought to you by Thursday Boots, the paid sponsor of today’s video.

And, for over two years, I’ve been wearingand loving their boots.

Guys, these are quality boots at an affordableprice.

These are using a Goodyear welt.

The advantage of a Goodyear Welt is it’sthe most water-resistant type of build that you can get and you want them for boots.

So, not only is it a quality built, but itprotects me from the elements.

100% of the leather used by Thursday Bootsis sourced from Tier 1 USA cattle.

What this means is that you’re getting anamazing upper that is going to get better over time.

They are going to develop unique patinas that’sgoing to reflect your daily adventures.

When you look at the insole right here, theyuse a cork lining.

What this means it’s kind of like a memoryfoam mattress.

It starts to conform to your foot that’swhy these are so comfortable.

Go check out all the different options theygot for men from the different styles from chukka to actually the dress boots, the morethe exploration boots.

If you’re looking at the different uppersthat they’ve got for you from suede to regular dark brown to a lighter brown like this madewith a Horween Leather out of Chicago.

Amazing company, guys.

I’m linking to Thursday Boots down in thedescription.

Great boots at an amazing price.

Go check them out.

The next reason why every man needs a pairof boots in this wardrobe, gentlemen, it’s all about the heel.

It’s all about adding height.

This pair of boots right here easily goingto add two inches to your height.

Women, again, like in general taller men.

Even other men look to taller men.

They’ve done these studies of like the topCEOs of companies and taller men seem to dominate.

Now, if you’re shorter, it is a lost cause.

Of course not, there are many tricks and tipsout there.

I’ve got entire videos on that.

But, starting it off with a pair of boots, guys, that’s going to help especially find a pair of boots maybe with three inches, twoinches is definitely going to help go from 5’5” to 5’7”.

Boom! There you go.

Next up, let’s talk about size.

Big shoes mean a big heart, right? Isn’t that how it goes? But, here’s – look at this right here.


So, which one is bigger? Of course this shoe right here is bigger, but what you’re doing is you’re looking to make your extremities a bit larger in generalespecially during the fall, the winter, and the spring we’re starting to layer, bringon other pieces and that can throw off their proportions especially if you’re oftentimeswearing casual clothing which is most men out there.

So, you wear boots like this, all of a suddenthey add just a bit also in the length, in the overall size.

It’s not clunky if you get the right style.

And you get the right style a really nicerugged look right in there and all of a sudden it builds up your feet, it makes you lookmore masculine.

So, the next reason why every man needs apair of leather boots in his wardrobe, gentlemen, is because leather evokes a feeling of masculinity.

Basically, when you wear leather you comeoff as stronger.

Now, what’s this based off? A 2001 study out of the school of art andthat was over at Liverpool John Moores University, what they found is that certain fabrics certainmaterials evoke feelings.

Tweed made you relax.

Whenever they put denim in front of people, it made them feel like they were more energetic.

And, leather, when it comes down to leather, it’s all about strength and masculinity.

And bonus reason why every man needs a goodpair of boots because boots are functional.

You get that rubber sole right here, you getsomething that covers up your ankles with a good strong leather.

You’ve got something that you can walk tothe snow the sleet the rain, not worry about damaging the boots as long as you take careof the boots, but they’re going to keep water off of your feet and they’re goingto give you a good grip.

Guys, boots are functional, one of my favoritepieces of menswear that a man can own.

[0:05:05]Now, you’re probably wondering, Antonio, how do I find a great pair of boots? What exactly do I look for in the constructionof boots? Guys, I’ve got you covered.

Check out this video right here.

I’m going to link to it down in the descriptionof this video.

But, in this video right here, I go into thedetails of the build, what you need to identify, what you need to look for, whatever brandyou may buy.

But, I do recommend checking out ThursdayBoots.

Again, I’m linking to Thursday down in thedescription.

I absolutely love this company.

Like I said everything about the constructionis awesome.

I know the founders.

I’ve spent time with them in New York.

Absolutely love what this company is doing, so check them out, guys.

I’m linking to Thursday down in the description.

[Bleeping sound]So, quick fact about the chukka boot.

During World War II, British soldiers actuallycommissioned these to be made up in Northern Africa whenever they were fighting [Rommel]because they wanted a boot that would be more functional in the desert.

They worked with Egyptian cobblers who apparentlymade quite a few of these boots, they absolutely love them and then they started to make theirway into men’s wardrobe.

So, you should know this, a little bit ofmilitary history with the chukka boot.

That’s it.

Take care.

I’ll see you in the next video.

Chelsea Boots Guide | The Classic Men's Boot Explained

Welcome back to the Gentleman's Gazette.

Today's video is all about Chelsea boots.

I'll discuss what you should look for whenyou buy a pair, how you combine them plus the hallmarks and characteristics.

Basically, everything you need to know aboutthis wonderful boot.

First, let's start with the history of theChelsea boot.

It was originally invented by J Sparkes hallwho's boot maker to Queen Victoria.

He came up with the idea to use vulcanizedrubber to have something flexible at the ankle and it would make them easy to put the bootson and take them off.

Chelsea boots were popular with men and women.

In the 1950s, the so called Chelsea set inWest London which was a conglomerate of artists and directors became known to wear this kindof boot and soon thereafter it became synonymous with kind of an upbeat, trendy, young, andfresh boot.

It was eventually renamed to Chelsea boot.

If you want to learn more about the historyof Chelsea boots and the intricacies, I urge you to check out our in depth guide aboutChelsea boots by clicking here.

What makes a Chelsea boot a Chelsea boot? Well, let's start with the Ankle length.

The Chelsea boot has ankle length and it'snot below, it's not above, it's right at ankle height.

Then, it has rounded toes like you can seehere and low heels and basically, those are characteristics shared with the Chukka bootswhich we discussed earlier here.

What's special about the Chelsea boot is thatyou have the vamp sewn up here, no lacing and then the back quarters are sewn on hereand here.

It's simply a boot that you pull on usingthese loops up here, it helps you to get in because without the laces, it's importantthat you have a rather tight fit right here in the foot and as well as the heel.

You want it to be quite tight and so you haveto fit in, it has to fit snugly and tightly.

Because leather would be too stiff and notflexible enough, this is the flexible rubber part which was invented by J.

Sparkes Halland to this day, you will find this rubber part, it always has this kind of U shape, it never goes all the way to the bottom, there's always some leather underneath, sometimesyou'll find it to be a bit shorter but generally, it comes in a contrasting color.

With brown shoes sometimes, it's a slightlydarker brown and lately you have seen people wearing green rubber or red rubber or likein this case blue rubber simply to kind of add a little flare and individualism to yourboots.

Chelsea boots today are extremely popularbecause they're so easy to put on and easy to take off and people like the elegant lookof it.

So, if you want to buy a pair of Chelsea boots, what should you pay attention to? It's the most important that you get the fitright hence, if you order online, make sure you can return the boots simply so you cantry them on and see if they're actually comfortable since there are no shoelaces, chances arethat you slip out with your heel and you always want to prevent that, it should fit reallysnugly so it's easy to walk around and the shoe doesn't come off on you because overtime the elastic will expand and so will the leather and if you slip out in the beginning, it'll be worse over the course of maybe three months.

So that also means, never just rely on standardsizing.

Moreover, sometimes you will find boots advertisedas Chelsea boots with zippers and that is not a Chelsea boot and you should not getit, you should always look for the rubber inserts.

The upper should always be made of box calfleather, sometimes it's popular with men to actually have it in a suede which is usuallyalso calf suede leather.

If you live in a rainy environment, it's notgood to have suede, go with regular leather and make sure that it's a darker color becausethe Chelsea boot works well with suits.

So I would either get in a black or in a darkbrown if it's your first pair of boots and subsequently you can venture into like tan, maybe blue or navy but to start, I think darker colors are better.

Also don;t forget about our free eBook, 15style mistakes and how you can avoid them and I'll tell you more about different kindsof boots such as the Chukka boot or Jodhpur boot and show you the right way to a bootthat works for your budget and your style.

Traditional Chelsea boots have leather solesand are Goodyear welted and that's really just fine.

, it's like a high quality shoehowever, if you live in a rainy area, you definitely want boots with a rubber sole.

Usually, I suggest to have a leather soleand then with an applied rubber sole like in this example, simply because you stillget that elegant thin sole look with the practicality of rubber soles.

Especially good in winter, if you live inan area where there's ice or there's a lot of rain, you may want to add a rubber sole, it's always easy to take it off if you don't like it anymore.

So in my opinion, that's really the way togo.

One thing that's really important in a Chelseaboot is the rubber insert.

Unfortunately, you can't really test the qualityupfront but I would suggest you read reviews online just to make sure you have a productthat stands up years of wearing them otherwise, it's no good to have a boot with a loose rubberpiece after just 6 months.

Chelsea boots are a wonderful all around boot, it's great to start with them because they can be worn with formal outfits and more casualoutfits.

Just clean, simple lines, if you get it withoutany broguing it works really well with most of your outfits and people will always thinkyou're well dressed.

So if you have a pair of black Chelsea boots, goes particularly well with charcoal suits, grey suits and mid grey suits and any typeof business wear.

Some people also wear it chinos or like ablazer combination.

Personally, I think a really dark brown maybe better.

As you can see here in this picture, thisis actually a very dark brown, though most people wouldn't be able to distinguish itfrom black.

It has the advantage that you can wear itwith a dark suit such as grey but also with like a tan chino or stone colored trousersthat is just not as harsh as black.

So if you want to go more casual with yourChelsea boots, I suggest you get a pair in tan or grey or blue and you can really mixit up with denim, with chinos, with other kinds of corduroy pants and just combine itin any way you like basically.

Adding a color to your insert will certainlyhelp to make it even more stand out and unique.

If you like broguing, you can have them withbroguings but if it's your first pair if Chelsea boots, I suggest you stir clear of broguings.

Just get a plain Chelsea boot with rubberinserts.

If you want a wing tip, you can sometimessee that.

Personally, I think it looks better with Derbysor Oxfords but if you really want it, you can still have it.

Lately, one trend I've seen is to have a shortercut Chelsea boot, so it's not really ankle length anymore but it's more like a shoe thatis slightly higher.

They can look very elegant although I personallyprefer the classic version.

It's simply up to you what you like and Isuggest you take a look at what's available out there.

Sometimes you find Chelsea boots that arerather bulky and especially the toe box is very big and round, it makes it more looklike a work boot or an extremely casual boot like a substitute for a cowboy boot or somethinglike that but if you want a classic style, I suggest you go with a rounded toe box thatis flat which makes it more elegant and timeless and refined.

If you now want to know whereyou can buy high quality Chelsea boots, please check out our guide because I list differentkinds of Chelsea boots that I've tested, good manufacturers, they are really worth yourmoney and they will work for you.


How To Wear Cowboy Boots | Ultimate Guide To The Western Boot | Roper Stockman Buckaroo Boot Video

How To Wear Cowboy Boots Ultimate Guide ToThe Western Boot Roper Stockman Buckaroo Boot Video [0:00:00] Hi! I'm Antonio Centeno.

I'm the founder of Real Men Real Style.

Today, I'm going to be talking about the Westernboot.

Yes, the cowboy boot.

I know many of you guys out there, you don’tride horses.

You've probably never even worn a pair ofWestern boots or even know anyone that does, but perhaps it's something you've wanted tobring into your wardrobe.

Today, I'm going to be presenting this videofor the guy that's just starting out who doesn’t maybe know a whole lot.

Some of you guys though, maybe you're alreadywearing Western boots.

You've got specific questions.

I go into a lot more in the article.

I'm going to link to it over at The Art ofManliness.

In addition, I have an infographic.

If you'd rather just look at the infographicand pick up all of this info in a matter of seconds, go over to the link that goes toReal Men Real Style and I've got the infographic right there, talk about the different types, different types of leathers, and all the different parts.

Now, in today's video, this is geared towardsthe guy just starting off, so we're going to focus in on three things.

Those three things are why you should considerwearing Western boots.

The second are the different parts of theWestern boot.

Finally, I'm going to talk about the mostcommon styles that you're going to see out there.

Now, guys, before I get into this video, I'mgoing to ask you to subscribe to my YouTube channel.

That way, these videos come right to you.

In addition, if you like this, if you findit useful, like it.

Go down and comment.

Let me know what you found useful in thisvideo.

Guys, you know I love going into the commentshere on YouTube, and answering questions, see what you guys have to say how I can makethese videos better.


Let's go ahead and let's talk about the threereasons why you should start to wear Western boots, but let me just start with a story.

My buddy, Ryan Masters — you guys have heardme talk about him — we're at a conference and he saw me wearing a pair of Lou Casey1883s.

Actually, I've got them right here and I'mgoing to use these to show about the different parts.

Ryan looked at the boots and he's like, “Youknow, those look pretty good.

I should at some point get a pair of boots.

” I'm like, “Ryan, you just moved to Colorado.

Of course you should.

You're going to find ways to use them andyou're really going to get miles out of them.

” So he went out and bought a really nice pairof gator boots.

These things drew attention.

They were a little bit lighter colored.

I don’t know exactly if they were gatoror caiman or crocodile, but in any case, they grabbed attention.

Ryan had to number one have confidence, sothat's one of the best things about starting to wear Western boots especially if you didn’tgrow up wearing Western boots, is that you have to have the confidence and build theconfidence to realize when you're wearing those boots, whether you're just wearing themwith a jeans and a t-shirt — and I've seen Ryan do that — still people are drawn.

They look at his feet and they're like, “Wow! Those things really stand out.

They grab attention.

So number one, when you start to wear Westernboots, you've got to build up the confidence.

You've got to be sure of yourself becauseyou are going to get compliments.

You are going to get comments.

You are going to have people ask you aboutthem.

The next part is instant style.

I talked about he's wearing just a t-shirt, jeans.

These boots, because of the design, becauseof the flair, they instantly grab attention.

Now, he started wearing them — I know hedoes a lot of dancing.

They're in Denver and he goes out to countryWestern bars now, and these things still grab attention because they are very stylish.

Boots are one of those things that it is perfectlyfine to make this almost the centerpiece of your outfit.

I'm going to get into the — I've got a bookhere and it's called “Cowboy Boots”, and I'm going to talk a little bit about a company.

In fact, I'd recommend you go check out theirwebsite.

I'll link to it, Rocketbuster.

They are a great example of a company thathas taken the art of the boot and they just ran with it.

It's an amazing company.

I think they're still in El Paso, Texas, butthese guys have had people like Arnold Schwarzenegger and other famous movie stars come in and spendabout as much money as they would on a car on these pair of boots which are handcrafted, designed, just beautiful pieces of art.

Instantly, you can add a piece of style toyour wardrobe.

The last part is the history that goes intoWestern boots.

Now, the cool part about Western boots isthat they serve a function and purpose.

I'm going to talk about this here in a secondwith the parts, but even the style of the heel, why do you think the heel is there? The heel is there because when you're ridinga horse, it actually would fit right here.

It would go right into the stirrup, hold itright there.

Why do you think they don’t have laces onthem? So if you fell off of your horse, the bootwould come off and you wouldn't get dragged and killed by your horse.

All of the boot has to do with history andfunction.

And so, let's go ahead and get into the secondpart of this video.

Let's talk about the parts.

We're going to start with the upper.

Right here, we've got pull straps.

Sometimes, you don’t see pull straps.

You'll see actually holes in the boot.

In any case, you're usually pulling the booton.

There are no laces on Western boots.

The second part is the stitching.

You'll see a lot of this stitching up now.

This actually served their purpose especiallywith the early boots.

They didn’t want them to sag or to fallover, so the stitching was there to help provide support in the boot.

Now, this is called the shaft and this isthe upper part of the boot.

Now, let's go down into the bottom part ofthe boot.

What we've got here are two boxes.

We've got one.

We've got the heel and we've got the toe box.

[0:05:05] Right here, it's called the heel counter specificallyand these are both formed to give the boot the shape.

Now, here we've got the vamp and the vampis one of the most durable, toughest parts of the boot because this is where it's goingto have a constant bending.

The vamp, oftentimes you've got stitchingand design to also strengthen this.

Again, this is probably one of the most durableparts.

If you're going to be conditioning, takingcare of your boots, which you should be, this is where you want to make sure you give specialattention because it's constantly bending.

If you don’t take care of it, this is wherethe leather will start to crack especially right here on the sides if you're not conditioningit.

Now, let's talk about the outer sole and theheel.

I talked about the heel.

Heels come in all shapes and sizes.

It depends on what you need the boot for andthe function of it.

Most Western boots though, we're going tosee anywhere from about one inch to about one and a half to almost two inches on theheel.

Two inches is a bit extreme.

Less than an inch, you're going to start toget into specific types of boots, which are geared more towards work.

Now, the outer sole right here, this is whatbasically hits the ground.

These are made to be replaced.

So if you start to wear a hole in it, you'dwant to take it to a cobbler, preferably one that specializes in boots so we can get thatreplaced.

A lot of companies like Lou Casey, I believeyou can actually send it back to the company and they will actually rebuild that for you.

Okay, so we've talked about why, we've talkedabout the parts.

Gentlemen, let's dive in to the differentstyles.

The classic Western boot, that's what I wasjust showing you right here.

We've got about — what is that — 12 inchesin the shaft.

We've got a pretty, non-descript, just simple– this is an all-around, simple boot.

Then we've got the shorty.

The shorty shaft is usually going to be quitea bit shorter, sometimes as short as six inches.

What we're going to see, the next one, let'stalk about the Western work boot.

The Western work boot, the big differenceis the heel at the bottom of the boot.

Ariat is a great company to look at theirWestern work boots because what you see is they've designed them for comfort.

These are men that are up on their feet 12to 14 to 16 hours a day and they demand comfort.

They're not necessarily getting into a horse, but they want something that's durable that still has the historic flavor of the Westernboot.

Next, let's talk about the roper.

Roper is an earlier version of the Westernwork boot and something that you'll see a lot of guys, especially if they're workingrodeos down in Pegasus, Texas or something, you're going to see ropers.

They're more practical when it comes to workand at the same time, you can jump and you can ride with them, so you'll see a lot ofguys especially that work around animals using ropers.

Now, the buckaroo, this is one that's morefor show.

It goes much higher, so the shaft on the buckaroois going to be much higher than a regular Western boot.

Finally, the stockman.

The stockman is kind of a hybrid.

Again, it's going to be for a guy that's notnecessarily getting into the saddle as much.

It's very similar to the work boot, but it'sstill going to have a lot of the style of the classic Western boot.

Okay, guys, I've got a lot more information.

Go over to Real Men Real Style, check outthe infographic.

Go to the detailed article at The Art of Manlinessand let me know in the comments if you've got questions, how you've been able to — maybewhat your favorite company is, how you've enjoyed wearing Western boots and maybe thecompliments you've gotten.

Again, guys, go check out the article, a lotmore detail.

I'll see you in the next video.

Acne Studios Jensen Boots vs. Everlane Chelsea Boots Review

Hi everyone! I'm Sophie.

Welcome to my channel.

Today I'm gonna be doing a review of my favorite chelsea boots: Acne Studios Jensen boots and Everlane The Chelsea Boot.

If you watched my review of best lace-up flats under $250, You would know that I'm very picky for shoes.

My shoes have to be pretty, comfortable and made of good leather.

These boots have met all my criteria.

Now let's jump right in.

My top favorite are the Acne Studios Jensen boots.

The shaft is slightly higher than my ankle bone.

The heel height is 1.


The pair is designed in a point-toe silhouette.

There is a v-shape gunmetal trim at the front.

The insole is lined with real leather, making it breathable to wear.

The outsole is made of rubber.

The simple design has the magic power to make legs look longer and straighter.

It may be because of the point-toe silhouette and the v-shape gunmetal trim.

On the sides, there are v-shape elasticated inserts.

These inserts make the legs look longer and straighter too.

Although the pair has a point-toe silhouette, it is very comfortable! It's not narrow.

I have slightly wider feet, and my toes have more of a square shape.

So If I wear European or US brand point-toe shoes, my little toes are always squeezed uncomfortably.

But I don't have issues with this pair.

My toes feel very comfortable! Even if I wear thick socks, I still feel comfortable.

Let's talk about leather.

The Jensen boots are so gorgeous that I've purchased two pairs! One pair has burgundy smooth leather.

The other pair has wheat grained leather.

The burgundy pair feels very smooth.

It looks shiny.

The leather is stiff.

I wore this pair for the last winter, and it hasn't got many wrinkles.

So it looks quite new.

The wheat pair feels grained.

It feels softer than the burgundy pair.

It looks shiny too.

This pair doesn't get wrinkles easily, so it looks quite new too.

Let's talk about the price.

The price for this pair is quite expensive.

Retails for $560.

I got my two pairs at sale prices.

About 30% to 40% off when I purchased them.

Quite a deal! My second favorite is Everlane The Chelsea Boot.

The design of this pair is even simpler.

From the front, it looks like normal chelsea boot.

The only highlight is the heel.

The back of the heel is white.

The shaft of this pair is similar to that of Jensen Boots.

Let's compare.

The heel height is 1'', shorter than that of Jensen Boots.

This pair has a almond-toe silhouette.

So it doesn't make legs look as long as the Jensen Boots do.

The elastic inserts on the sides have rectangular shape.

So it doesn't make legs look long and straight as Jensen Boots do.

The insole is lined with real leather.

The outsole is made of textured rubber, which is more anti-skid.

In terms of comfort, the Everlane boots are narrower than the Jensen Boots.

But because of its almond-toe silhouette, my wider feet don't feel uncomfortable wearing this pair.

The pair has black smooth leather.

But the leather is not as smooth and shiny as that of the Jensen Boots.

The leather feels stiff too.

But the biggest con is that the pair gets wrinkles very easily.

I bought the Everlane boots almost at the same time when I bought my Jensen boots.

And I wore both boots almost equally frequently.

The wrinkles of the Everlane boots are apparently more than those of the Jensen boots.

So the Everlane boots look more worn-out.

Let's compare.

The Jensen Boots look like 80% to 90% new, while the Everlane boots look like 50% to 60% new.

The Everlane boots retail for $235, almost half the price of the Jensen Boots.

For the Everlane boots, the value for the money is great.

For size reference, I normally wear boots in US size 7.

I chose size 7 for the three pairs.

If I had to choose only one pair, I would go for a pair of Acne Studios Jensen Boots.

The reasons are: first, it makes legs look longer and straighter.

Second, it is very comfortable to wear.

Third, it doesn't get wrinkles easily.

Very easy to take care of.

Even if you've worn it for a long time, it still looks quite new.

I simply can't find another pair with pretty design, great comfort, and gorgeous leather.

It is pricy.

So I highly suggest purchasing it at sale price.

For about $300 sale price, it's really a great deal! The Everlane pair is less pricy.

If you are on budget and like simpler design, you may consider the Everlane pair.

Well, this is my review of my favorite chelsea boots.

10 Ways to Wear a Crochet Scarf

hey crafters so as you saw from thetitle of this video today I'm going to be showing you ten different ways towear a crochet scarf so obviously this one is especially for my crochet peepswell I thought this would be a fun one to do because let's be honest when

youlearn to crochet the first thing you always learn to make like anybodyanywhere you make a scarf and it's like a scarf or just a nice long rectangularshape so it's a great way to practice learning your stitches however what thatoften mean is you end up with oodles of crochet

scarves probably way more thanyou will ever actually need or wear and the other thing is while crochet scarvesdefinitely have their advantages they're a lot different than silk you're thinnerwhiter more fabric scarves and so wearing them can sometimes be achallenge because you might feel that either the scarf itself

is too chunkyand there's just too much fabric there or you might be afraid of lookingoutdated now one of my favorite things to do is to prove to everybody thatcrochet is not by any means outdated so I'm gonna show you ten different ways towear a crochet scarf and hopefully

this will give you some pointers for what todo with your big stash of crochet scars might give you some ideas for newpatterns to try and I might also let you know which ones you should probably letgo of so for look number one I have the most basic simple

crochet scarf everthis one's not very long also I'm kind of proud of this month this is my veryfirst person a scarf so you can see the end here is a little weird and wider butby the time I got to the end it wasn't looking so bad so anyways

I'm gonna showyou that yes you can wear those first scarves that you Mane now the trick withthis one is this scarf isn't super wide it's about average width and it's notvery long so that's why this works so great for this look so I'm calling thisone the French choker

scarf so you just simply go around leave a nice tail downon this side and then wrap it around one more time and kind of keep it tight upnear your neck doesn't have to be super tight but just kind of like that it hasa nice little fun look almost

like a neckkeeps your neck nice and warm but it still looks cute also what's nice iseven if your ends aren't completely even it just adds a little extra Flair at theends of this look look at number two is probably about as simple of a look asyou can get

this is just a simple basic wrap around the first way I ever knew towear a scarf what I like about this one is it's I'm using a scarf that hasfringes on the end this is a fun little way to take your crochet scars and nowjust a little extra

touch to them and it doesn't take much time you just cut outlong strips of yarn and just kind of pull them through tie him to the end tocreate this really cute fridge so for this look or it's gonna be very similarto the one we just did but we're

not going to pull it tight we're just goingto leave it loose and this is also a lot of fun with these ones that aren't quiteas thick because sometimes it's hard to get them to not look like you're justwearing a really stringy scarf because I definitely run into that

problem if youmake your Starke too thin but this look is nice because you can easily kind offluff the front part here fluff the size and it doesn't have a stringy look andit looks like a nice cozy warm scarf and you also have the fun little tassels onthe end

just to keep the look super cute and playful this next look I've got afairly long scarf here as you can see and it's also kind of wide the fabricisn't super thick because I did a lacy sort of pattern in the middle so what'ssuper fun to do with scarves

like these is this simple fold it in half and pullthrough so just start with your yarn folded in half and come around your neckand then just take both ends and go right through the loop right there nowwhat's fun about this look is you can leave it as loose

and far down as youwant or you can snug it up a lot and have really long tassels on your startbut I really like this look expression with scarves that have differentpatterns and textures in them because it's a great way to keep the fabric andthe textures of the scarf

revealed but it also keeps you warm and it looks verystylish this fourth look is a twist on thepullthru and this is going to be the pretzel pull through so for this one Ihave this fun silver scarf just neutral colors with little flecks of colorthroughout there this one's fairly

thin not super low so this one works reallywell because it's a great little scarf that I compare with lots of things add alittle bit of warmth without having the super intense bulk of a crochet scarf sowe're gonna start in much the same way we do with the pull

through so just keepit folded in half and come with this end around your neck and instead of pullingboth through we're gonna start by pulling just one and through just likewe did before now the second end is where it gets funwe're going to come under the top one right

here and then over the bottom oneand then just cinch it up like that and you have this nice little pretzel kindof weave Coulter here this one's fun especially with this scarf that's reallythin because again if your scarf is too thin it ends up looking kind of stringyit doesn't

look that cozy but what this does is it allows for a little bit morethickness and a little more texture in a very simple scarf because like I saidthe scarf is very neutral goes great with a lot of items so it works reallywell for this cute little pretzel poke

through keeping with the neutral trendour fifth look has to do with variegated yarn variegated yarn is a great way tospice up any crochet project and with scarves is also an awesome way to take asimple top and add a little pop of color just that nice contrast so for

this lookwe can wear it just about any of the ways that I've shown so far do you knowhe doesn't have to take anything special but because the scarf itself has so muchcharacter in color by pairing it with just a neutral top it adds a littleextra Flair and it

can really add some color to an otherwise simple outfit sohere I'm just showing it with the pull through look now let's move on to somethicker crochet scarf so the ones I've shown so far aren't particularly thickfairly thin however I have this big monster of a scarf here that

is superwide super thick so this scarf I crocheted from some Lion Brand wool-easethick & quick turn which love by the way because it works up sofast however when you make it into a scarf it ends up really chunky sosometimes it's a little overwhelming trying to pair this well

with an outfitnow as you can see it's pretty long here so I'm going to simply just take itabout in half keeping my ends even and just come around my neck like this andleave it low so this look I call the graduation cords look with a scarf soit's almost

like wearing a graduation stole nice and long and it's a great wayto wear this scarf because it both keeps you nice and warm on your neck and alsoacross your chest but it does sell it out overbearing you because fix carslike these can be pretty heavy very very warm

so I really like this sixth lookwith this thick scarf just because it's a great way to take something reallythick and chunky and just kind of spruce up an outfit but not keep it too boy soanother option is to slide a little bit of slack to the one end

and just simplydo the throw over the shorter one which is also super cute with a fake startlike this because it's heavy enough that it will stay and because it's a thickenough scarf you can also kind of leave it city open almost get that cowl kindof like and it's

super cute and will also provide one without being reallyoverbearing of a look so those were looks six and seventhis one isn't quite one of the crochet scarf looks I'm going for so what justcalled a seven and a half this scarf is great if it's like really cold weactually

have snow it's like today I was just out there so you can always use ascarf like this for very practical measures and just kind of wrap yourselfup tuck yourself in and stay very very warm on a cold day so I wouldn'tnecessarily say that this is a crocheted scarf

look you want to wear but this isa very practical solution for snow days like it is for me today so keeping in athick chunky scarf trying to of these next few looks for look number eight Ihave another scarf that is made from Lion Brand thick & quick wool-ease

yarnnow a couple things on this one first it does clash a little bit with this top Iapologize but we're gonna pretend it's a perfect match second of all you'llnotice that while this one is very long and I still use um at least a full skeinI probably used about

1 and a half skeins of this youit is a lot narrower so that's a great tip if you're making this scarf and youwant to use a chunky thick yarn like this but you don't want it to be sooverpowering like the last look was is to simply make it

thinner and so with ascarf like this we can again go with any of the looks we've done so far I likethe pretzel pull through so I'm gonna do that one again anyways I just did thepretzel pullover with this one and as I said it ends up not being

sooverpowering but it still provides more great thick soft chunky yarn but it'snot so overpowering simply because the scarf itself is narrower look numbernine is one of my absolute favorite looks of all times I've got this funscarf here that I use some again Lion Brand yarn I've done noticing

a trendwith all these scarves but anyways Lion Brand homespun yarn this might have beena thick & quick homespun one so nice thick chunky yarn and I did this widealmost a lacy crochet pattern to it I'll get a pattern up on my blog sodefinitely go check that out if

you want to make a scarf like this but anywaysyou can see some really pretty variations and hey infinity scarfyes crochets and these drugs are a thing and they're super awesome all thedifferent looks you can do with them so I like to call this one the double twistso I'm

just gonna start by looping it around my neck and you can normally doan infinity scarf or you just kind of loop it once and go back over and thatlooks cute but for the double twist we're going to instead twisting it onceokay one if you can figure out yeah

we're gonna twist it twice so do onetwist and then a second twist and what this does is once you loop it over itcreates this really cool interlocking kind of look I also really like the wayit works with this particular scarf just because of where the color variationsfall it

kind of creates this like every other look I think it's really fun nicecozy way to wear this scarf so look number 10 our final look thisone's gonna kind of be a two-part one just for fun so again I have anotherinfinity scarf this is actually the same design that

I used to crochet this brownscarf where it kind of has a lacy or bit of texture in the middle but what's funabout this one is it's another infinity scarf I love infinity scarf and I thinkit's super pretty in these colors so this one's kind of a two-pole book

sothe first look we're going to do with this scarf is we're gonna come aroundand then take one end and loop it over again so it's gonna have kind of a neckchoker look kind of like the white one I call it the French neck choker butinstead of having two

talents it's gonna have this nice long look so hopefullyyou can see this on the camera here by just talk has a longer look and it hasthe infinity scarf which makes extra fun now this last little but I'm gonna showhere is a great idea with any scarf make a

matching hat so this is kind of lookten and a half I suppose if you're having one of those days where it'seither just a bad hair day or you want to stay nice and warm and cozy or evenwith all these two looks you can't get your start to look

right or okay let'sbe honest here it's winter it's cold sometimes it's too cold to shower rightso you might have like not so great looking hair anyways whatever yourreason ad hat is always a great way to accessorize with the scarf because itmakes a more complicated looking outfit without being

overbearing so with thishat I like to fold the brim over I've got a nice little cute flower on hereplay around I've got the little flower here you know pull my hair out in thefront can always you know leave your hair down you know pull it in front likethat

curl it back here keep my hair down in the front kind of bangs out on mouthso I don't look like I'm bald but it's a really cute way to just add a little bitof extra flare to your outfit pair it with a scarf of course you know it'sreally

easy to match because hen you just use the same yarn this hat againnothing fancy this is like the most basic hat you canI've got a patent for that up in my blog so definitely go check that out but it'sa really simple way to create a very cute look

with your crocheted I don't sothere you have it there are 10 ways to wear a crochet scarf I hope you enjoythese looks let me know in the comments belowwhich look you're going to try out this week and of course sometimes despitethese 10 looks there sometimes comes the point

where you look at a scarf and yougo there's no way I can pull this off without it looking at or tacky or itwon't match with anything so if you do have extra crocheted scarves that you'vemade who may be from your beginning days with all you knew how to

make with ascarf why not consider donating it look for a local organization that providesthings for the homeless because a scarf can really make a difference in keepingsomeone warm so that's just a free little idea you've got extra scarves andmight as well do something good with them right so

that's what I've got fortoday I hope you enjoy these 10 looks to make sure you give this video a like ifyou're gonna try out one of these looks don't forget to subscribe I appreciateall my crafters but until next time happy crafting well so you know I getdone filming

the short hair the little hat you knowthe scarf and a little like French style you know I'm very trendy you know so Iguess I'm a flapper now

Too Short Scarf into Wine Cozy

Hey there everyone.

It's me Katie-Beth, again! And today we're going to talk about what to do when you make a scarf too short.

I tried making this one and this is about as long as it came out.

And unless I was making a really tiny little scarf, with like a broach right here.



Oh! That's kind of cute! .



other than like the neck brace look.



But like, if just had one here and.



With like a jacket over it.

Nah, it still looks stupid.

Let's see.



I don't know what I was thinking.

Even making a scarf this thick.



That looks ok.

Yeah, maybe something like this.


It still looks very neck bracy.

Any how.




About in October/November, I bought some yarn.

And it was one of those sales where, “this is all there is!” Like $2 a spool.

And I got three of them, because I though that would be long enough for a scarf.

But, because I made it so thick.



Scarfs don't need to be this thick.

I don't know why I made it this wide.

But any how, it only made it to about–it looks long on here–3 or 4 feet.

And one of my ideas was that.



I was going to buy some other yarn.

That looked similar to it, since it was completely out.

And just add it onto the ends.

And I found a color that looked pretty similar.

But the more I thought about it, the stupider it sounded.

Just having this multi-colored scarf with just solid ends.



And one of my ideas was to actually just add some pearls on it.

And kind of decorate it more.

Make it a little prettier.

But the more I thought of that, it also sounded.



How do I say this? Not stupid, not dumb, but like.









Basically I didn't want to do that.

I didn't want to do that anymore.

So, my next thought that I had, and which this project is going to be is I'm going to.



make it into.



a wine holder.

Like a wine sweater.

Wine cover.

Wine Warmer.

You don't need a wine warmer at all.

But, ah, some type of gift to put your wine in.

So, let's get doin' that.

So the first thing I am going to do is actually.



get rid of these ends.



all the extra places where the yarn met up.

There was actually a lot of them in the middle, but I already took a needle and weaved it through.

To make (get them) to the ends to make it easier to tie them up to the side and get rid of.

So here's just a really quick view of that.

And this is them at the end.

And when they got to the ends, I actually just cut them off.

I was going to sew the ends anyhow.

So here is the sparkling cider in there.

I'm kind of doing a measurement.

And then folding it over to make sure it fits pretty well.

There's a little extra space.

If I needed to put something bigger in there, I probably could.

And then I just sewed up the ends, and I did it twice.

I just went down and up.

And here's what it looked like after being sewn up.

I put the sparkling cider in there.

And here's the left over on top.

And there's enough that I'm going to fold it back over and make a pocket.

And after that was done, I needed to make a strap.

So I braided some strands of blue.

And here is what the strap looked like.

with a pocket folded up.

And then I had sewn it, just with some needle and thread.

Sewn it in there.

So it's not super straight.

But it's enough that it will hold it on there.

And it will definitely hold when I am picking it up.

And these are.



here's just a clip of the little plastic beads–pearls that I used.

And here, I'm slowing down this footage so you can see it.

These are the pearls that I put on here.

It's really hard to see the pearls that I put on here.

And here's what it looks like with some other gifts.

Alright! So this is what you can do with one of those scarves you make that is just too short to be a scarf.

Up here, it's a little card holder.

And then, as you can see, I put pearls on it.

The little craft store pearls.

And I cut the fringe off to all be the same size.

See the little pearls on here.

They're hard to see because of the different colors.

But there's like random pearls sewn on there.

I hope you can see it on the camera.

And then you open it up.






I actually have sparkling cider.

So I hope this video was entertaining, or fun, or helpful to watch.

Or somehow worth your few minutes to watch.

Here's another quick look at it.




Well, have a great night (said funny) everyone.

Have a great night everyone! And I'll see you next time!.
