I was more than a little surprised when Santa Claus pulled up in front of the store today to deliver this pair of Edward Green MTO’s for Joe S. He’s a lucky man since he just had a pair of Arca’s delivered to him by Pierre Corthay earlier this month.
Joe placed this order for the Newmarket on October 28, quite good delivery on EG’s part. These are in black calf on the 888 last. A classic Chelsea boot if ever there was one.
We’ve just received a new delivery of Psycho Bunny cashmere scarves. This particular scarf we felt looked great paired with the J.M. Weston Chelsea boot. You may also notice a tie peaking out of the boot; we have a small selection of PB ties as well. You’ve gotta love the bunny!
Chelsea boots those timeless boots that bring back memories of the sixties, the Beatles, or the Rolling Stones. Chelsea boots quickly became popular with Mods because it fit in with their sleek, tailored look. Some varieties sported the so-called ‘Cuban heel,’ which was supposedly derived from flamenco footwear. Check out Ray Columbus and the Invaders on “She’s a Mod” not a great song but you get the essence of Mod style. Although the song grows on me and I’m very jealous of the thick heads of hair.
Sixties Chelsea Boots
Today the boot lives on in a more classic style that can be worn with a suit or jeans. We have two styles of Chelsea Boots at Leffot. The more traditional Church’s Amberley with its rounder toe and single pull strap,
Church’s Amberley in Black Calf
And the more contemporary chiseled toe model designed by Michel Perry for J.M. Weston.
