Ah, the holiday party dress code debacle. Second only to determining what kind of booze to bring to a particular bash, deciding what to wear before you click "RSVP" is, well, fraught. Every year, and with every new invite, those same symptoms come up-- anxiety, sweaty palms, a desperate, trapped feeling when you remember you ripped the sleeve of your winter blazer at last years' fete and never had it fixed. Or maybe you're calm and collected in the face of your ever-fuller calendar but just sort of oh-so-bored by it all. Blazer. Suit. Repeat as necessary. Either way, we get it. The answer to both these conundrums? The element of surprise. Enter: Jack Erwin's sharp, sleek Chelsea boot. Pair it with a suit for the sort of irreverent twist that's, frankly, what holiday parties are all about. Or, if the house you're headed to is more six-pack-of-craft-beer than Scotch, throw them on with some dark denim and a fair isle sweater. Handmade in Spain, they're sharp enough to cover you for either event, yet distinctive enough to keep things interesting. Plus, at a pricepoint that can't be beat, you'll get to feel smug at all those holiday events as you sip your bourbon, neat. Well...more smug than usual, we mean. Get them here.
