Trekking

Wearing - Gap work jacket, Topman orange cord shirt, Dexter Wong for Topman baggy trousers, 2nd hand hiking boots, ASOS "Life Aquatic" hat, Topman socks.

If you have been following my last few posts and tweets you will know the headache I've been having about finding some new boots. I saved up for ages to buy some Redwing boots and when they arrived they were as hard as rock inside so it was back to square one. Then all of a sudden I bought two pairs in the space of a week. Above it the second pair, dark brown leather hiking boots, from a vintage shop in Manchester, priced at only £20(which is a surprise, as I'm sure everyone is aware of the rising prices in some vintage shops). I'm pretty chuffed with them I must say, they are in pretty good condition, a few scuffs and still decent inside. They're heavy but they is to be expected from a purpose built boot.

My attempt of a outfit post is always a bit hit or miss, this one is somewhere in between, I haven't got a tripod so I have to balance my camera on whatever I can find, and because I'm tall most of the time my head gets lobbed off. I'm liking the looser trousers at the moment, regular high street chinos are mega tight and will make these boots look like moon boots. 

Anyways, you liking my nod to the rambling scene?

  1. I enjoy this a lot! I like that you've made those boots look smarter than they are and then topped it off with the cute hat to take it down a smart level.

  9. Nay, i'd say definitely a successful outfit post mr buckets! the background compliments perfectly.
    Love the rolled up trouser leg with those boots and the woolly hat. I'm drawn to more guys blogs recently because they seem to use more styling quirks than us ladies.... maybe they've less of a range of garments to work and are more imaginative in their styling? Your thoughts?

  11. This is a great look! Like the bright red hat & those boots look brilliant, what a find eh! These photos are fine, really wouldn't have known the camera was balanced somewhere, but it is a headache doing your own pictures, thats why I don't!

    This is my last comment tonight, I had a fair bit of catching up to do with your posts! I just checked out Pinterest & it looks pretty good. I've bookmarked it & will be going back for a better look soon...thanks for the tip! :)

  15. Those shoes are bargainous! I like the way you've rolled your trousers up to shoe (ahem SHOW - that was an actual typo I promise) them off jazzy ♥

  16. The rambling od - I like. I really like how you've rolled up the trouser cuffs so there's a tiny bit of sock showing. The devil's in the details.

  18. Did you steal this hat from my friend? He had one and then he lost it! Great look, nice boots, but you SERIOUSLY need to stop buying shoes..

  19. I'm really digging the proportions of the jacket to those of the pants. The boots look great as well. (I wish I could walk in them...I guess that's what I get for wearing nothing but Converse All Stars non-stop since I was 14--flat feet ha). Great look punctuated by the ASOS hat.

    Best,
    Diego

  21. LOVE THIS! Your my favourite Jacques Cousteau in this outfit teehee. The boots are amazing, I hardly enter a vintage shop any more because I just have a question mark painted on my face every time I stare at the prices.

  23. Mat, you look great! I really like a bloke who dresses trendily: Dan can go shove a 'Doc Marting' somewhere personal. Why is it the nasty people on the internet are always anonymous?!

  24. I'm glad you're not fashionable too Dan!
    Congrats on the H&M style guide feature, well deserved. Love the mix of colours here and of course, the boots.
