Canvas Military Spat

Canvas Military Spat

These are currently used by the US Army to keep dirt and water for getting inside one's boots, socks or pants legs! I think that they're terribly chic, and especially love the one string mechanism for lacing them up -- it is looped around the eyelets on the left and simply slipped onto the hooks on the right to "lace it up" -- this is clearly an innovation compared to the kind of lacing, for ice skates or corsets, that we all know.
