Am looking for a stylish but not fashion-forward take on the classic brogue.

And back to the suits... I own one SuitSupply suit, a couple of Richard James RTW, BB 1818, MTM from a couple of different tailors and a couple of hand made Italian RTW, slighlty adjusted to me by my tailor (Kiton and Borrelli). I can honestly say that I enjoy wearing the SS suit as much as all of the others bar the top end Italian, but seeing as their retail is about 10 times the SS retail, I think that's understandable. As for the rest of my suits, I like them all (I...
That's fantastic guys, thanks a lot.
