It's still ivory.

I might have to throw down for this one. A little preview of my trad game. If I had to guess, though, I'd suppose most SFers won't know what to look for in a good "trad" outfit. I assume most don't know what a 5/16" edge is, or a lapped seam, a 2B sleeve, or a hook vent.

I have a pair of the AE Malverns I bought last fall for around $250. They're blobby, but the leather quality is pretty good (standard AE stuff) and the dainite soles should last a long time. They're not nice enough to wear with a suit, or even odd wool trousers, but better for chinos and the like. If I had to do it again, I'd probably opt for something else (Loake Kempton), but I'd think a decent buy at something around $150, if new.
