- Forum: Classic Menswear
Chelsea boots are a classic though they fell out of favour for a while. Pull up pictures from the '60s and you will see them everywhere. They were popular in the '20s, too. Of course, in Australia, they have an importance and place all their own. With straps, however, I find them to be a skosh feminine. I don't know why, but I just find ankle boots with straps and buckles remind me of women's shoes.
