What's Up Doc?21:25:00
The weather has officially turned for the worst with flooding, gales and general miserableness abound. With this in mind, I have been on the look out for some new boots to get me through the season.
This is the year of the Chelsea boot; their practical mix of formal and casual makes them a great addition to any man's wardrobe. They'll look great paired with cuffed jeans or slim chino or wool trousers, depending on the occasion.
I have written before about my love of Dr Martens and was kindly invited to the opening of the flagship Belfast store last year. I knew they would have the solution to my Chelsea boot conundrum as I wanted something more rugged than the slim. Beatle-boot style. Step forth the Victor boot.
I knew I didn't want something in black. While black is the classic Dr Marten colour, I always find it too harsh. I wanted something in either tan or conker brown, a bit more tonal for autumn and winter. Plus it will work with the majority of the trousers and pants I currently have.
I couldn't resist taking a few more snaps of the amazing styles currently available too - if only I was a little braver and a lot richer!
