Boots With Suits

The northeast corridor has been getting pummeled this winter with snow. Bad weather calls for tough shoes. Your thick, rubber soled lace-ups should carry you through the usual ups and downs of the less desirable seasons. However, when a foot or so of accumulation is piled along the pathways between your lobby and your desk, some boots are in order. Tough times call for tough measures. Tough measures call for tough footwear. Old Man Oxford McShoe did not pick up the phone (it went to voicemail and you know he never checks those). Boots answered the call, though. Boots, meet “the commute.” Duck boots, work boots, or some extra tall logger boots will fit the bill. Basically, the boots you grab for shoveling snow are the same bad boys you’re going to put on with your work attire (toting some loafers in the duffel bag). Every source of style advice out there will tell you to ‘get crazy’ by wearing a pair of green socks to the office. That’s all well and good, but that is calculated. This—this pairing of abominable boots and a tailored suit—is ad-hoc. The real selling point? Your lack of remorse.
