FASHION AND STYLE...THE CHELSEA BOOT

Ever since London trendsetters co-opted it in the sixties, the elastic-sided riding boot known as the "Chelsea" has been a staple of any fab wardrobe.A lot of my male friends are definitely going to be rocking them this season,of course they're gay,wealthy,and so overly stylish that even I get tired when going out shopping with them...they are the epitome of the Chelsea Boot.Now I'm not saying that you skip the Timberlands this fall but if you're feeling a little stylish,a little classy,a little rich,a lot gay then these fit the occassion.

Here are a couple of the season's best:

Marc Jacobs
Price: $495Available at: Marc Jacobs Soho, (212)343-1490,

The shape is rather traditional for Marc Jacobs, but the color, an ultrasmooth elephant gray, helps these Chelseas stand out among their basic black and brown competitors.

Banana Republic's classic version of the Chelsea boot is made of remarkably supple calfskin, especially given the price.
