My Men’s Boot Collection – Boots of Sven Raphael Schneider Gentleman’s Gazette


Welcome back to the Gentleman’s Gazette! In
today’s video, we discuss my boot collection. In the past, I already discussed my cufflink,
as well as my shoe collection, so if you’re interested in those, please check them out
here. Also, stay tuned for other videos about my closet and my wardrobe. So the first boot of my collection is this
black one here that is kind of an oxford Balmoral boot. It has a Vibram rubber sole for better
traction even though it’s Goodyear welted as well as a lambskin lining that keeps my
feet warm during the cold Minnesota winters. It’s actually made by
Shoe Passion which is a German company but the shoe itself was produced in Spain. In
Britain, you mostly find leather lined boots and I always found that they’re way too cold
for winters with lots of snow and low temperatures such as here in the Midwest. The next boot is likewise black but slightly
different. It’s more elegant, it has a leather sole and a cap toe, as well as a Balmoral
boot style with an insert in a contrasting black suede. It’s definitely something you
would find in a shoe that was worn with a stroller suit or morning wear back in the
20s and 30s and today, you can also wear it with like a business suit, for example, and
to break up the black monotony, I added some gray contrasting boot laces from Fort Belvedere
which you can find in our shop here. Usually, I wear those with my cashmere striped trousers
either for a stroller ensemble or a morning coat. To learn more about morning dress, please
check out this video here and if you really want to dive into it get our over 200 plus
page guide in our shop here. The next boot is likewise perfect for morning
wear. It is Goodyear welted by hand, it’s a prototype from Fort Belvedere, it’s a button
boot and ten years ago, those boots weren’t around. Now, you can see they’re more popular
in Japan and more people wear them with suits. Traditionally, they were worn with the cashmere
striped trousers and because the outfit was usually a mix of white, black, and grey, this
a two-tone effect really helped. If you want to learn how to button these boots with a
hook please check out our video here. Next up is a Chelsea boot which is an all-time
classic with the rubber elastic here. It’s a contrasting kind of blueish purple which
makes the boots stand out, otherwise, it’s a very dark chocolate brown color and in Italian
I I think it’s called testa di moro and it’s nice because from afar, it may almost seem
like a black shoe yet you can also wear it with outfits that usually call for brown shoes.
It has a medallion cap toe as well as rubber soles
so it’s good for wet fall days. Next up is the Dalton boot from Allen Edmonds
in horween cordovan. Its oxblood, it has this open lacing system which makes it easy to
get inside of the boot, it’s a relatively tall height for a dress boot and the cordovan
ages in a different way than calf leather does and again, we’re preparing for our shoe
shine series here. To spice up the look, I added a pink pair of boot laces from Fort
Belvedere which you can find in our shop here. I think there’s not many places out there
where you can find long boot laces in all kinds of different colors. Again Goodyear
welted made in Port Washington Wisconsin by Allen Edmonds. Now, this Scotch grain boot in brown by Allen
Edmonds is also made for the winter. It has kind of a sheepskin lining but only on the
side and on the top upper not at the insole which is quite funny because then your foot
gets cold from the bottom and it’s kept warm from the other side so I like the all fur
lined version from Shoe Passion more. That being said, it’s kind of a pigment coated
Scotch grain pattern which works well in the winter because it’s quite water resistant,
it has some hooks here at the top, and it has a rubber sole, and it’s a good shoe when
it’s not super cold outside. Next up is a jodhpur boot which has an Indian
heritage, comes from polo fields. To learn more about this stylish shoe, please check
out the Jodhpur guide on the website here. It’s a nice medium brown, very elegant, very
clean lines, it’s closed with a strap that goes all around. It’s a very good shoe, I’ve
liked wearing it, it has likewise a rubber sole so it’s good for fall days and it works
with all kinds of chinos, khakis, anything where you otherwise wear brown shoes with.
It is made in Italy blake rapid stitch by Scarosso. Next up is this kind of work boot style made
of oil leather with like strong caps. It’s a true work boot for yeah work outside and
it has this white rubber sole. It’s usually typical from Red Wing I think this model here
is from Thorogood which basically has the same properties as Red Wing but you pay less
for the marketing and it’s less expensive. Next up is a suede boot and quite an elegant
last. I like it quite a bit. The suede is in a nice rich brown I think the brand is
called Armin Oehler, it’s a German brand but I think they’re made in Asia, Goodyear welted
and I enjoy wearing it not so tall more of a chukka boot style. to learn more about chukka
boots please check out this in-depth video guide here and in general if you want to learn
about all sorts of boots and shoes we have in-depth guides that you can find on a gentleman’s
Gazette website Here is another jodhpur type boot from St.
Crispin. It has a different cut it is hand Goodyear welted in Romania it’s a custom shoe
you can see it has very fine stitching and I’ve had it for a long time it has served
me well good shoe. Here’s a pair of vintage Morlands from England
they have a lambskin lining all over which is quite nice they’re not super tall so I
wear this boot a lot during the winter yeah it’s definitely not the best shape but we
still have winter and snow outside here so I have to wait until that’s gone and then
I’ll probably make a video out of it This is a nice typical English country boot
in orangey tan color feels very sturdy has a double sole so it’s very thick but just
a leather lining so it’s good if you’re in a countryside but not great if you live in
a very cold climate. I like it for fall outfits it’s very stiff and just a solid shoe with
metal eyelets I added a burgundy contrasting pair of boot laces from Fort Belvedere just
to complete the look I like to wear it with all sorts of tweeds and more casual outfits
sometimes even though with like black corduroys and the tan provides a very nice contrast
to them Another more unusual boot is this blue one
here from Jamie Johnson which is a German brand. Honestly, I don’t quite know where
the shoe was made. its Goodyear welted it has a leather sole and you can see there’s
some contrasting leather layers in between here just to kind of make it different. blue
suede is not a very common color either and the lining I think here is turquoise the shoelaces
are burgundy so overall it’s more of a statement shoe yet the burgundy color is quite dark
so you can wear it with outfits where you would otherwise maybe use dark brown or a
black shoe or boot instead and I like it to have different options in my boot wardrobe. The next shoe here is a very interesting model.
It’s from Allen Edmonds. I think it was a special edition made for mass drop. it has
like an oiled sole that is rather soft, a nice English suede leather that is unlined
like a true original kind of chukka or a desert boot. So if you like Clarks, I would say this
is the better version. it’s goodyear welted in a nice sand color so I like to wear it
in at the end of the summer it’s kind of a low-profile boot there’s no support really
in the heel so it’s a very casual boot that can look quite nice with chinos or seersucker
for Example. Alright, gentlemen, that’s it for my boot
collection and again if you want to see other items such as my shoe collection please check
them out and here and to subscribe to new videos please hit that subscribe button along
with that bell otherwise you won’t get all the video notifications and that’s what you
want. In today’s outfit I’m wearing an olive green
jacket which is part of a suit I combined it with a very small-scale blue white-and-green
houndstooth patterned shirt with a big kind of 70s inspired collar I wear it with a yellow
silk knit tie from Fort Belvedere that it works well with the yellow pocket square with
hand-rolled x stitches likewise from Fort Belvedere
my pants are classic sand colored chinos and I combined them with purple and turquoise
socks and for Belle there with shadows stripes and they work well with a turquoise leather
lining of my green velvet house shoes which are slippers which I have two,of course.

100 Comments

  • Where could I find a good looking safety toe shoes?

  • Those prototype boots from fort belvedere are wonderful and I would be very appreciative if you put them into production

  • Who else is in love with the tan wingtips @ 6:20 ?????

  • What do you think about vintage Florsheim wingtips that were made in the USA?

  • your tie collection video is probably going to be a whole documentary. I remember you saying that you had like 200 ties and 100 bowties or something like that. Can't wait for that marathon XD

  • How do you keep the bottom of your pant legs from getting soiled when you are walking through snow or rain? I walk to work and I always have to clean my pant legs when I come in.

  • Woah woah. I feel like your corduroy pants were puddling up when you wore it with the blue accented Chelsea's. I'd get them altered

  • So the truth finally reveals its self. A boot-boy. LOL Great collection! Here in Ireland the choice in boot for men is zero. I know because i am always on the look for boot the might suit my kilt outfits. Now this is a very interesting subject. Had no idea there was such a variety. The truth is out there somewhere.

  • Made in Romania? Wow bro!

  • Nice collection, don’t know about the baggy corduroys though, a slimmer fit will make your boots stand out.

  • I have a pair of those Sand colored Allen Edmond Chukkas you showed at the end. The model name is "Gobi". They're super comfortable and definitely one of my favorites I own.

  • Question Raphaël : I live in Montreal (Canada) and the boot is "de rigueur" of course, with the kind of Winter weather we have up here. But I would be afraid of ruining the leather with all the slosh and salt that's used on the street for de-icing… How would you treat your dress boot? Snow Seal or other products? Thanks for your kind reply!

  • Hi Can you translate the video to the arab
    it will be better

  • OH MAN FINALLY. You have no idea how long i've been waiting for this video.

  • I thought you had at most 10 boots, I am glad to be proven wrong.

  • Tie collection?

  • You are quite the clothes horse. But I suppose it comes with the job.

  • I covet your boot collection. Nice!

  • Every male living in the US should own at least 1 pair of round toe + western heel cowboy boots. Even if the only time you ever wear them is for that one random rodeo you find yourself at somewhere in the southwest.

  • ich habe mal eine Frage , was ist das beste Krawatten Material was man bekommen kann . Und Gutes Video wie immer Mr Schneider

  • Why do you flood your pants so hard?

  • Can you do a video on outdoor hats like slouch, pith, safari and cowboy hats?

  • Good taste in boots

  • Fun Vid – and rockin' the color today – eh? Cheers!

  • You should make a video showing the books in your library

  • Great video. Not a fan of your wide cuffs, however. I like them more tapered.

  • Now show your women's boot collection

  • I️m not too sure if this is just the classic style, but your all your clothes just straight up look too baggy and like it’s not falling well on your body idk maybe it’s just me

  • damn im envious…

  • Mr. Schneider, suit and coat collection! ?

  • the way the blue insert peaks through the little broguing details in the chelsea boot is so sweet, great little details on all these boots

  • I am a woman who enjoys watching your videos. I wish there was a woman channel with such great quality content!!

  • No Norwegian Storm welt boots?

  • No Yezzy Military boots ?!

  • Does this guy wear a suit everyday?

  • Hallo Herr Schneider, i'm a huge fan of your channel and watch your videos almost daily. I'm a younger guy (17) and just starting to develop my look. Could you please make a video on what good ideas are to wear to my school's homecoming dance, or prom? Homecoming is particularly hard for me because it's less formal than prom but I still want to dress nice. Thanks!

  • I wish taller boots, like riding boots were more common in gentlemen's wardrobes these days.

  • I would highly recommend Taft boots to anyone looking for an amazing pair of boots. Very high quality, handmade in Spain and excellent customer service.

  • Wo kaufen Sie ihre ganzen vintage Anzüge? Aus den 30ern zum Beispiel.

  • He honestly belongs in 20's

  • while the black leather, black suede, grey laces boot looks good, i am not a fan of the colour combinations for the button boot and the chelsea boots. in my humble opinion, beige and black have too much contrast, navy is a better option and the blue elastic on the chelsea just doesn't look flattering. once again, those are my opinions. ppl can wear/like as they please.
    MOST of the other boots look great!!

  • I like the first pair of boots by ShoePassion, but I didn't see them on their site. Would you mind sharing the model number? Thank you.

  • Where are your shoe trees?

  • Wow YouTube didn't put you in my feed for like a year! Activated the bell

  • And I thought my boot collection was excessive…..!!

  • Pretty nice, I have some from Mezlan, wolverine, cole haan, Allen Edmonds and Magnanni. Personally I love magnannis quality; the patinas of them make them unique to other brands

  • I'm dying for a pair of button boots! Will get some from Fitzpatrick one day!

  • I noticed that sometimes you start your boot laces on the top and sometimes underneath and sometimes bar. Which is the best for those Allen Edmonds Dalton’s? Thanks

  • Wonderful content & collection. After seeing the Allen Edmonds boots I will certainly be getting a pair!

  • I live in the Middle East. If I take your word, that means I have to pay only $ 5000 for the suits. I only have $ 200.

  • How can I be Gentleman at the lowest possible cost we say $ 200

  • Please say something about Cuban heel boots and florsheim boots

  • Belt collection and suspenders collection

  • I love that Allen Edmonds First Avenue, brown grain boot. I have the same one and it's one of my go-to boots.

  • I love the button boots!

  • Y’all need and instagram or tumblr

  • No western boot?

  • Will there also be a signet ring collection video would be very nice!

  • Boots always look worse when your pants cover all of it.

  • 3:34 is my style

  • You should do a tour of your own closet

  • Don’t know how I ended up here but these comments r hilarious How is this interesting

  • Do you have an underwear collection? I would like to see that please. You did ask. ?

  • like your different style but think thinner slightly slimmer fitting pants would make all of these outfits look a little cleaner.

  • Next video
    My Men's Cargo Shorts and Flip Flop Collection

  • Grandad pants man

  • So you got a boot collection but don’t have timbs or Clark’s? I DECLARE THIS VIDEO A CRIME!

  • I like these videos and some of the boots are awesome others are just too old ? and you definitely miss doc martens but on the other hand they don't fit you probably

  • Minnesota winters? I need to pay more attention to your winter clothes videos. Not used to men’s videos that could apply to us here in Minnesota for winters.

  • Who makes the coat you're wearing at 2:30?

  • Hi, danke für das interessante Video. Von welcher Marke sind die Chelsea boots mit dem blauen Gummi aus dem Video?

    Hi, thank you for the interesting video. What brand are the Chelsea boots with the blue rubber in the video?

  • Great content. Been looking for it. Personally I feel there could be more manly boots added to the collection

  • Thanks for the recommendation @
    Gentleman's Gazette, I acquired a shoepassion #672. Just perfect for Austrian Winters

  • You should definitely have a stand in for all your clothes showings. I just saw a train wreck telling people how to dress when nothing fits you or is completely disproportionate and baggy and the wrong century.

  • For a dude who's so old school, why no beard?

  • Any boots made to order and measure?

  • Do you really wear a top hat?

  • I am a woman who watches your vids religiously because my man won't make the effort haha…but not complaining! Thanks so much for the awesome tips!

  • What your comment to boots on fantastic beast, it's balmoral with double monk strap on upper

  • I live in a similar but even wetter climate–Johnstown, Penna.. Will any of these boots be of any use in a foot of snow or when you have to pick your way through an inch of water? None of them look like they can take wetness.

  • Amazing and timeless shoes that would last for years, but they're probably $1000/pair.

  • great videos and collection….a pure classic …mostly are undoubtedly fit for fashion style of the early to mid 20th century….keep up the excellent work!

  • $285 for a leather wallet. Kmt.

  • Is it just me or are his pants wayyy too big for him? I mean a slimmer fit would be way more flattering and give the proper attention the boots deserve…

  • I wonder how many dead cows Sven's collection is made from. (I am not a vegan, I own a leather hard-shell briefcase, just curious).

  • You need to buy clothes that actually fit. Get into the 21st century, man. Baggy cords and ill fitting shirts and sports coats just don't cut it. Nice try though.

  • Tus pantalones de bota ancha son un asco al igual que la Basta

  • Do have a doc martens boots

  • Where did you get this pair of wingtip boots? They look so nice!

  • Sven, who makes your jodhpur boots?

  • If I had the money to live this lifestyle, I wouldn’t live this lifestyle.

  • At 5:19 what did he say the brand was called?

  • No western boots??? Please do a video on why or why not to wear

  • I like my flip flop boots .

  • Sven in Timbs 9:40

  • I like your style, but you need to taper those pants

  • Nice collection! I've worn work and cowboy boots for the majority of my life.I recently bought a new pair of work boots and decided to pull away from the cowboy style back to a more traditional round toe Red Wings.

  • Clark’s where I live is made in China and is very very very low quality.

  • Suddenly I want to watch "Oscar"..

  • its very shocking that u dont have any coniston
