No search engine is necessary. An Ask Andy newbie just needs to click back through a few pages and they will know everything they need to know about CT shirts, Alden and Allen-Edmonds, Brooks, J. Press, madras, and assorted other Amer. Trad. crap. Then there will be no need to start future topics. There have been times when there were multiple Tyrwhitt threads going on the same page. The question about what shoe to wear with semi-formal dress has come up countless times on both sites. Maybe you should start a new thread on Ask Andy.
I was referring exactly to this specific multi-thread discussion. I haven't posted there any question, yet, but I know, on a daily basis, if I have a very basic question, I can find the answer there in seconds. B
