Varies. I've had two pairs of NOS Church's for Brooks. One pair similar to today's run-of-the-mill Church's Custom Grade (i.e. fine, on a par with C&J benchgrade IMO); the other pair, just absolutely fantastic.And yes, they will be pre-Prada. Not really a watershed, quality-wise.
Looks great, well done. The collar looks a bit loose in the second to last and last photos.
God that is a fantastic suit.
Not about clothes, but this is my favourite Wodehouse quote: “Into the face of the young man who sat on the terrace of the Hotel Magnifique at Cannes there had crept a look of furtive shame, the shifty hangdog look which announces that an Englishman is about to speak French.”
Thank you. Much appreciated.
I don't doubt that your brogues are very nice, but Grenson shoes were much, much better in 2005 than they are now. I'd steer clear at the moment. I'm sure their most expensive offerings are made to a decent standard, but they don't offer value for money. Certainly, Tricker's are preferable for the kind of shoes you are talking about.
This may be completely the wrong thread, but this doesn't deserve it's own and I can't think where would be better. A man I met today was wearing a very nice suit, the trousers of which had a split of about an inch on each outside seam at the bottom (the trousers were uncuffed). A bit like tracksuit bottoms with the side-zips undone a little bit. I would assume this is something traditional, since the suit looked bespoke (looked Anderson & Sheppard to be precise) and he...
Very helpful - thanks very much.
Chelsea on the 202. Arguably the classic Edward Green shoe. Possible bargain for an SFer with big feet! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Supreme-Edward-Green-Chelsea-Oxford-Shoes-12-5-Made-in-England-/130898260007?pt=UK_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item1e7a24f027 Also: I'm not sure about this, but does the script on the insole mean that they are Top Drawer?
This is a bizarre statement. If I saw somebody wearing chinos and sockless, I would instantly assume they were American. .Boat shoes are the only shoes I ever wear without socks. Anything else I find uncomfortable and incongruous. Those AAAC trad guys who wear Alden PTBs and no socks are masochists.
