 Aha.Thanks for the info.  -VF
Purdey has some boots and a couple of shoes made for them by Crockett & Jones.   I particularly like their version of the Coniston, which comes in a darker brown than the standard C&J varieties, and the grain leather brogue boot they seem to have based on the Islay (but which is on the much more becoming 325 last).

A possibly accidental factor is that it draws the eye down the inside of the sleeve when the jacket is removed, bringing dimension to the garment's interior and emphasizing its construction.   In fact, I'm quite sure it's unintentional, but I have always enjoyed that aspect.   -VF
