The Zipper Boot

The Fall Style Issue 2016

The Zipper Boot

 

We love a good Chelsea boot, we do. Look through this issue and no doubt you’ll spot a couple. But sometimes you want something a little more rough-and-tumble. Something rugged, but still issuing an air of refinement. Tough but elegant. Like a biker in a tuxedo. The zippered moto boot is just the thing: sleek and streamlined, but not without some teeth.

BILLY RIED / $495

Moto boots and black leather jackets go together like, well, moto boots and black leather jackets. For the rest, don’t overthink it. Dark denim. Your favorite tee or a buffalo-check flannel. Maybe a nice pair of frames if you want to soften the look. Now get out there, man.

Here’s the fun part: taking these tough-guy boots and using them to rev up a standard slim black suiting kit. This ain’t your 9-to-5 look, so have some fun with it. A knit polo instead of a button-up. A healthy dose of man jewels on the wrists and hands. A showstopper watch just to let ‘em know that you are not, in fact, f*cking around.
