Fall Territory: The Chukka

SUEDE CHUKKA by CALVIN KLIEN $120

What is a Chukka do you ask?

Put plainly, Chukkas are ankle-length boots with two or three pairs of eyelets for lacing. They gained their popularity back in the 1940s and 50s when they were known as casual wear. But for today’s man, the Chukka is perfect for dressing up a casual outfit or dressing down your slacks and sweater combo.

We see a lot of them showing up right around fall because of their versatility (see above), color—which is usually a shade of brown or tan—, and protection against falling temps and changing weather.

We recommend at least one pair of these in your sartorial arsenal because they’re comfortable when broken-in but still look good enough for a night out.
