You can either wee it to suit or your favourite jeans or casual slacks."Heart of darkness - Darkness at heart"At Robert & Blad we are really tired of cool attitudes and hiding behind irony. This is a collection inspired by when REALLY dramatic emotions lead to REALLY drastic actions; crimes of passion.HISTORY:Spats were stiff fabric covers covering the top of the shoe and extending up the lower part of the leg. Spats, especially white ones on highly-polished black shoes, formed part of the stereotype dress of a wealthy young man of the era, along with a top hat and a cane. Other common colours were grey, tan, and black. Though often a fashion accessory, wool felt spats were also worn to keep the ankles warm.Commonly worn as upper-class city dress prior to World War I, spats fell out of fashion during the late 1920s, although retained until the 1940s as formal daytime dress for men on occasions such as weddings and other social events. A short female version, usually in beige, was popular during the Edwardian era (1901-10).Spats were an evolution of the 18th-Century ´´spatterdashes,´´ a version of the similar (but strictly practical rather than decorative) articles known as gaiters that are still worn today, to prevent water getting into walking boots. The 18th century spatterdash was a protective item of dress worn by soldiers, farmers and others whose occupation involved regular exposure to rain and mud. It reached above the knee and was kept in place by side-buttons and buckles.
