Also, 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. Spats are still used today in certain industries for safety reasons.
The wearing of spats is often used as symbolic shorthand to represent wealth, eccentricity, or both. Most famous fictional characters such as Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot, P. G. Wodehouse’s Bertie Wooster, Lord Peter Wimsey are representatives of elegantly turned-out prosperous gentlemen of the period; it would be odd if they did not wear spats.
