The ‘Maitland’ is an especially elegant elastic-sided Chelsea boot finished to Crockett & Jones’ Handgrade specifications, exclusively for Double Monk. We commissioned this boot in order to offer our customers something of incomparable quality in the Australian dress riding boot tradition. The term ‘Chelsea boot’ derives from the fashionable inner-London suburb where, in the mid 1960s the elastic-sided boot became a favourite of the young, rich and famous. A slim, pointed variation gained huge popularity when worn by The Beatles at the height of Beatlemania. The true appeal of the Chelsea boot, aside from its clean, simple appearance, lies in its comfort and ease of wear – it is perhaps the easiest form of footwear to pull on at a moment’s notice. Crafted on the 337 last and featuring a softened square toe, this calf-suede Chelsea boot will combine beautifully with jeans, chinos, cords or flannel trousers, with the texture of the suede providing a softer and slightly less formal character than that of its calfskin cousin. The black suede adds a certain villainous streak, opt for the dark brown suede to add a classically rakish appeal.
