Tommy Ton's contributions to GQ are always something to behold. In the few days he is tasked to cover street style at fashion weeks, he always manages to come up with an album that both envies and inspires. Intentionally or not, he also capsules the latest trends direct from the world's most stylish men. This time, he shows us how the work boot fever has caught on in Florence. Although by no means new (most all Hong Kong men were wearing them in August), it's a bulky look that I'm happy has sustained. However, the question is, can we get a piece of that here?
Fortunately, we can! I was walking around Greenbelt 3 earlier when I spotted these strikingly similar boots in Carbon. The local shop started carrying imported names lately and I, for one, can't help but laud their efforts. The boots are from a Hong Kong-based brand called What's Up and as you can see, they're pretty Florence, Italy ready. The mustard laces instantly pop against the chocolate brown and navy uppers and that chunk, oh that chunk will be the end of me. For about P4,600++, I actually don't mind. It's a fair price to pay to look like a dashing Pitti Uomo patron!
