These posts have been pretty interesting. I'm no minimalist, and do pretty much adhere to the look aside from a couple nervous breakdowns due to our ridiculous heat and humidity-- but the ideas detailed above are inspiring if anything. My wife would thank you all if I were inspired to let go of my obsessively healthy wardrobe. Something to add here: For shoes, I'd add in a nice pair of boat shoes by Paraboot or Quoddy. Or on the other hand and in the minimalist spirit,...

There are loads of skinheads in Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, Korea, etc., and have been for at least a couple decades now.

It's luckily overcast and not too sweltering in Nantucket, so for a "barbecue" I was just at, it was wearing Alden color 8 beefroll loafers, pique cotton navy socks, oxford cloth navy Engineered Garments trousers with a brown/olive surcingle belt to offset my shirt-- a crisp red/white/blue check Brooks Bros buttondown with sleeves rolled twice, Shinola Wright Bros watch with brown leather strap, and tortoise shell Wayfarers. Blended in just fine with the yacht club set...
I love Slade myself, but you'll get no love from this camp for them. As "skinheads" they were total posers, but man could they write a tune!!
That's Don Powell!***runs and gets tin hat***
