What I Am Wearing – Spectators

What I Am Wearing - Spectators

It’s not very often that I break out my pair of 1920’s Chicago gangster-style spectators, but I always love the reactions that I get when I do. It’s funny, because I never thought of them as “gangster-style” but this is a frequent comment that I receive amongst my colleagues here in London. I always looked at them as a very dandy-ish style shoe that elegant gentleman wore in the southern states of America when they wanted to dress up for festive garden parties or the likes of that. And while I am sure that their history goes back in a much more extensive way than that, it’s just something that is embedded in my mind, being American and all. But now that I am one of the millions of viewers that watches the magnificent series, Boardwalk Empire, I can understand why they may receive this ‘gangster’ moniker. Nevertheless, there was a period when Church’s were doing these in all types of color options (even white with yellow) and while I wanted to get one of each, I decided that I would just go with the most classic of them, as pictured here.
