Spats - Revival


Canvass Spats - In The Style of WW1

Since the mid-19th century, soldiers of various nations, especially infantry, often wore leggings or spats to protect their lower leg, to keep dirt, sand, and mud from entering their shoes, and to provide a measure of ankle support. French infantry wore white spats for parade and off-duty wear until 1903. Italian soldiers wore a light tan version until 1910, and the Japanese Army wore long white spats or gaiters during the Russo-Japanese War of 1905. (source Wiki)

During the late 1970s and with the emergence of New Romantics, army surplus stores were selling spats to Punks and New Romantics who adopted them as part of their fashion. In recent months we have started to see these fashion accessories coming back, fueled by films and of course folks looking for something different.
