Spats. Yes, spats. A little over a year ago I heard from a customer who was looking for spats. I soon learned that it was just about impossible to find a new pair made the same way and with the same materials that they were made 100 years ago (excluding custom made). So I began my quest to manufacture spats. A year later, after partnering with a leather worker in New York City's garment district, we've added two styles of spats to the shop site. Initially we've only made them in one size, however if the interest is there we will be adding additional sizes and styles.
Spats were a popular accessory in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, originally meant as a protector of shoes from mud and muck. Here are some images from the archives:
