Thank you for the elaborate explanation : )
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that chelsea boots don't go with suits. I love boots with suits and wear them together myself quite a lot.
All I'm saying is that in today's world the more rustic chelsea boot is not the perfect match for a modern formal business suit in my opinion but each to their own.
Great pic, but is that a suit? I'm not saying it isn't, the jacket just looks more like a coat to me. (in comparison to modern suits)Given their history chelsea boots would make sense under a tweed or country type suit. Boots to be worn riding your horse from your cottage in the country into town.Chelsea boots under a modern business suit don't make as much sense.Just my 2ct
