Let's be honest: a thing made of crocodile skin is not an essential item and is much more capricious. This, for example, could be buying Ralph Lauren alligator boots. Actually, the model with the revolutionary name Fidel is quite popular: these are typical "hikers" (consider, boots for long walks with an emphasis on comfort), which happened to the brand more than once or twice. But especially for the residents of the Mother See, the American designer literally brought gloss, instead of more traditional types of leather, choosing exotic. Of course, the cost of such a pair (15 of them were created in total: nine in brown and six in olive) is by no means symbolic - 487,500 rubles. But there's nothing you can do about it: expensive leather is expensive for that.
If you have made the decision to definitely invest in a crocodile, then shoes are perhaps the best option. Firstly, such a purchase will have a practical side: the skin is by no means lightweight. Secondly, there is less risk of losing the object of desire: accidentally forgetting your shoes under a table in a cafe or in a taxi is unlikely to work.

In addition, the scales of a predator are always a danger to pose as a poser: too transparent a hint of status. And boots in this sense are more reliable, say, a trench coat or a hat. Provided that they are not "cowboy" or painted in some kitsch color (red and yellow, for example, it is better to avoid in favor of black, brown or natural green). A good choice would be "carry-on luggage" - a moderately modest briefcase or backpack.

If you venture into a jacket, look for a simple cut and, again, natural shades. Unless you deliberately want to resemble the Joker from the not very successful "Suicide Squad": the crazy hero Jared Leto sports a dark purple crocodile coat with powerful lapels. But he is, I remember, a psychopath.

Keep in mind: the crocodile does not tolerate competition. He in itself is already a little "overkill", so additional accents - neither color nor textured - are not needed in the outfit. At the same time, other elements of the ensemble must match: the Loro Piana cashmere parka is perfect for a pair of Fidel (but you should refrain from leather outerwear), boots and a briefcase will require the strictest adherence to the business dress code (for example, in the form of a classic suit - Brioni doubles), and a Brunello Cucinelli high-necked sweater under the jacket.>
