......2: Black Patent leather dancing pumps with ribbed silk bows are the most traditional. Formal shoes can also be shined leather or velvet. Velvet pumps are most appropriate when you are hosting a formal evening at home! Oxfords (lace up) are fine, especially in an emergency.

Bi-swing backs in suits and sport jackets are more "country" than city since the origins are from hunting jackets. They allowed arm movement to shoot firearms (shotguns).

Good News!! J will not have to host the Ask Andy Forums after all We have a new upgraded (bigger, better, faster) Forum software which brings Ask Andy into the 21st Century (well maybe the 20th for some of us)! We're up and running. If you are a member look for a new password in your e-mail. We could not migrate any user passwords so for you to be able to log into the new forum, you'll need and receive a new password via e-mail. Sorry for that...
It's going well. Started a little later than planned, but everyone worked through the night and is still working, but it's looking very good for about noon today, Saturday. jml90 -- you may just be psychic! (but I bet you knew I was going to say that!). But don't uncross any fingers yet! Andy
