Military Aesthetic Outfit Building Help (Male)

Looking for recs on combat boots (lace-up, black leather or imitation leather, knee or shin length preferred) – brands, styling, where to buy, etc.

Also looking for recs on black turtleneck compression shirts. Military workout shirts, maybe?

Already have some grey-green Austrian Bundesheer Anzug military surp pants in pretty good condition, just a little baggy but I should be able to counteract that with a belt and putting the legs inside the boots. Will post pics of them below.

Also looking for advice in general on this outfit idea and concept. Bad or good direction?

    buy genuine surplus, anything "military inspired" is automatically shit
    look at multiple military surplus stores online (sportsman’s guide, colemans, hessen, etc)
    actually do your research and know what you’re buying

      Military clothes don’t mix well with civilian style. What are gays like talking about?
      You’re going for a very gay and autistic look OP. At most wear doc martins.

          insane levels of gayry reeking from this post

          >doc martins
          Nice bate

          >doc martins
          I know for a fact you own a pair of the black platforms and customized with purple laces

          No idea what you have in mind. I’m not american and I know doc martins were big among factory workers in the past, before off brand heavy duty shoes came up.
          I don’t post here, I just came here to look if there’s some specific help since I have to get new winter clothes. I don’t think this board will be of help…

            I bought 20 pairs of the pants because they were very cheap at the time

            Jk that’s cool anon. I’ve only interacted with eastern euro soldiers when I was in service and saw some br*ts.

            Doc martins have become cheap plastic crap sold to "not like the other girls" women and trannies.

          • Anonymous says:

            So they were adopted by punks, and as punks turned into "not like the other girls" and trannies, the shoes were rebranded like that?
            Sad, but I’ll keep it in mind. It’s far from my style.

            Stop this immediately

            Not OP, I was, and it is illegal and I don’t give a shit.

      boots sources?

      Also, would knee-high boots be out of the question?

            Not the best photos but whatever
            Was kinda hard to actually tuck in with jeans, I do have BDU pants that blouse better but I generally don’t do that because it looks kinda tryhardy I dunno

            Personally I usually either roll up the cuff or let it cover the top part of the boots like in pictures 3 and 4

            >tfw too self-conscious to actually go outside with the pants tucked in

        seconding paramemes, why do you want knee-high boots? i don’t see those as a military aesthetic thing, i only see goth girls and fetishists wearing knee high boots.

        • Anonymous says:

          I think I had riding boots in mind when I posted that. Someone recommended me a pair when I was looking around for leather boot recs.

          Paramemes do look like the best option in terms of sheer amount of recommendations, but the average price seems to be pretty high. Hopefully a mark of quality?

          • Anonymous says:

            I guess, if I’m wearing them often enough. I’m not actively working a job at the moment (college), so my budget for cool shit is a bit lower than usual at the moment.

    if you want to dress like modern tier one guys, buy expensive european made stuff. lowa boots, fjallraven pants, a random old tshirt, a glock 19, and dip. unironically srs

          >Dip’s getting bigger again
          damn, based. I smoke but I kinda want to try dip for the lols. I remember all the ball players spitting dip when I was a kid but we didn’t know it was dip, we just thought you were supposed to spit a lot when you played baseball, so we used to spit all the time for no reason. good times.

            they are, I told these younger kids that I went to a baseball game and they asked if I “threw Xin” I asked him like twice to repeat himself before I said “you mean Xanax?”. I asked one of my buddies what Xin was and it’s like the e cigarette version of dip, it’s like nicotine dip without the tobacco (i.e. the bad breath)

            Frat types at my college are addicted to the things.

            This guy in one of my morning classes comes in every day with either a monster or a red bull and tucks a pouch in his mouth while sipping.

            I get the feeling his heart must be begging for mercy

    What exactly are parameme boots? Where can I find them? I’ve googled them and not much is coming up in the way of purchasing options.

    Oh, also, I mentioned it in OP but does anyone have recs/advice for compression shirts, mid-neck length turtleneck style?

    Just to rec something that isn’t paratrooper boots, German or French ranger boots, or Austrian jungle boots are a good alternative if you want combat boots on the bulkier side
    They look better with baggy pants as well imo

          Thanks for the tip. The bundesheer anzug pants I’m working with do have adjustable cuffs, so maybe that’ll help.

    I’m a sucker for African military aesthetics so here’s a few sites I used.

    These guys do reproductions from western allied countries across the 20th century, got some of their Rhodesian items and I’m pretty happy with them. The iconic olive shorts are far too baggy though, can’t recommend them.
    https://www.whatpriceglory.com/products/c203-rhodesian-and-cold-war/

    Instead you can get some from this site. While not actually militaria, the colors they use make for great substitutes and give you lots of freedom in making cool combinations.

    And I haven’t used this site yet, I’ll try them next. Very simple stuff that can be mixed and matched well with anything from the previous two links.

      Is anyone familiar with sizing on parameme boots? I fit a 45 in French rangers, or an 11 in Danners and most american boots. Are the Austrian boots sized similarly the the French ones?

      • Anonymous says:

        They fit true to size with an insole inserted into the shoe. Without it, it’ll cause heel shaft movement. It’s built in that manner, but isn’t really explained or noted; hence why sizing may seem so confusing along with the fact that everyone has different feet.
