Do These Go Together?
hey, im new round here and just looking for a quick answer. sorry in advance if this is the wrong section for this post or whatever
normally dress quite street/chavy, and wanting to get more into fashion and smarter. want some smart shoes and smarter jeans without brands plastered all over them. dont really want vans and chinos as everyone is wearing those atm <_<
so just wondering if these jeans and shoes go together? Thanks

They propably would go together okay, but if you're working towards a smarter look, I'd stay well clear of those jeans! They're really chavy! Try Topman or River Island for a pair of dark straight or slim fit jeans, with 4 pockets MAX! (They're right around the same price of the Rivington ones) But remember you aren't going to get the quality that you'd get with Levi's etc.

btw, jeans usually have 5 pockets

I would definitely give those jeans a wide birth! If you're looking to improve your look then get a slim or straight leg, and try and spend a bit more if your budget allows it. Jeans are something that you definitely get what you pay for, the more you spend the longer they'll last (cheap denim tends to lose its shape) plus if you pick a classic cut it will never date.
If you're on a tight budget then I would recommend ASOS / Topman etc or if you can stretch it a bit then All Saints make good quality jeans for the money OR if you have £80+ then check out the likes of Nudie Jeans and Edwin which will last you a life time unless you get fat and can't squeeze into them anymore! Even then they'll sell for good money on eBay unlike the cheaper brands which have no resale value.

yeah i've got to agree. The shoes are great but go with something a bit more simple on the pants. A slimmer cut jean/pant HOME | Alex Maine has some awesome pants, they are jeans cut but made out of like softer material

Ugh. I am not digging those jeans, sorry
