Been looking for a pair of work boots and a new pair of selvedge denim jeans but stuff that's available in Manila are usually overpriced. Since I've been on a tear on Lazada lately, I checked if some overseas vendors had some for sale. A quick search showed me a brand that I have never heard before, Maden Style. It's a Chinese brand supposedly owned/run by Russians. Most of its pieces are copies of other established fashion brands (i.e. Rogue Territory, Nigel Cabourn, etc.) but for the fraction of the price. 

I ordered a pair of 15 oz selvedge denim jeans and lace-up work boots. Delivery took 11 days from China to Quezon City. The total damage? Only 4,050 pesos total or around $80. 

They run really small compared to A.P.C. so I suggest you go with their size chart. 

I couldn't see myself paying $300 for a pair so I got THESE instead. Go half a size down from your Nike size!

Not bad, eh?
