    I genuinely like this brand. *hides for cover*

    The wildest retail store i've ever seen anywhere in the world is the newest Chrome Hearts store in Aoyama Tokyo.

    I like chrome hearts too. can't afford it though. therefore I hate? I dunno. They came out with some #menswear beaded bracelets that wre alright recently, but Taka and the Navajo kid that he's collab'ing with on The Soloist jewelry line is killing it right now.

    Chrome Hearts is just insanely expensive when compared to a lot of smaller and IMO much better silver brands.

    There was recently a big discussion about Chrome Hearts on SZ in the Recent Purchases thread. It's worth a read if you're at all interested. It mainly revolved about the difference between their clothes and jewelry. To me it all seems pretty gaudy though.

    I'll summarize it here for everyone:

    Some guy: "Chrome Hearts isn't so bad."
    Some other guy: "No it really is look at all these things they make that aren't jewelry and are ugly! And people who are not like me like it!"
    Some guy: "OK but the jewelry is decent and works well with black?"
    Faust: "Shut the fuck up bitch or I'll ban you."

    fuuma pretty much said my thoughts on that... it's funny how that forum gets when CH or mastermind japan (maybe i'll even throw balmain in there) is brought up. your average guy walking down the street isn't going to really appreciate the subtle beauty of your cobweb splatter boots and moldy leather jackets any more than silver studded belts and shit.

    huh ? i understand some ppl dont really like chrome hearts but Balmain ??? Balmain it have great product. they make lovely leather jacket every season. also they biker jeans !!!

    personally i dont like Chrome hearts before, i think is too gang-kie and overprice, but recenly i had changed. after i brought my first ID bracelet. i just cant stop buying their silver jewellery.

    they are petty easy to match, tee + jeans + white's boots already can give you a great look.

    some ppl say the are overpriced if compare with others silver jewellery. yes if you just see it as a piece of silver, it is expensive, but they are CH. not just a silver.

    just like cartier, why their diamond and gold jewelery can 10 times more expensive then no brand gold and diamond jewelry ??? also why a Hermes birkin can sell more then 10,000 when they are just a pcs of leather.



    anyway, lets share your CH items here !!! would love to see them all !!! dont be shy !!!

    I became a fan of chrome hearts after watching Face/Off...
    When he steps out the caddie at the airport and his jacket catches the wind, and his boys gives him his box of goodies, u can catch a glimpse of his gold roller belt... So sick...

    Here a pic of my belts...

    Not everyone is an old dude who teaches english in China. Your opinion isn't uninteresting per se but it is definitely not relevent when it comes to what people wear and buy in SWD.

    BTW I think CH mostly looks like shit and is overpriced. It looks nice if you're Kilmer's character in the Salton sea.

    the gaudiness of it all holds a certain charm, but overall I agree its ugly and overpriced. Prefer werkstatt stuff since its minimal.
