Don't take my word for it, ask these guys:

 

 

 

I may be mistaken.......... but I believe that being age 20 and playing rock and roll on stage and making millions of dollaz is a greater contributor to coital success than elf boots.

A lot of variables in this equation.  The most important are trouser width and fabric weight.    Of course having a military hem won't hurt.

Two conditions will ameliorate this issue:

1). - taller boot shafts. and

2). wider trouser legs in heavier fabrics.

You're almost in leather chaps territory now, pardner!

For every problem (boots catching on trouser hems) there is a solution.

The only chelsea's you need to get laid.....



I have no problems with the tabs catching on my trousers, but then again I only wear them with jeans or moleskins and very occassionally chino's.

Others one can wear while riding a horse ...

Even the sleekest of chelseas is ruined by that slab of elastic. Maybe if I were a beatnik... smile.gif

Airports. Asia, making a lot of house calls. Life.


A two-eyelet chukka is too much for you to bear in these contexts?

Yes, and even the sleekest captoe Oxford is ruined by those pieces of string on top. :/

Loafers FTW

And the lines of monk straps are ruined by those unsightly buckles, and brogues by all that punching and curlicues.

Presenting the UnShoe (patent pending): a leatherette film that you spray directly on the foot to form a shoe-like cast around your pied.

No more beastly buckles, sickening shoelaces, or terrible topys -- just a sock of pure leather, the way it was meant to be. Streamlined.
