As a teenager I wore chukka boots, and since then I stopped wearing boots altogether until a few years ago. I like side gore Chelsea boots in both more moddish and more rugged forms, including suede, and I own but never wear a pair of Alden Indy boots in natural chromexcel. br> Lately for some reason I started thinking about chukkas out of the blue, and the idea of a brown pebbled style really appealed. So I bought an ultra-cheap pair from (ahem) Men's Warehouse. And I'm loving them, with all kinds of trousers-- even thinking about the controversial suit combination. Where have chukkas been all my life? Tempted by these from Peal & co.!
