I'm not a grammarian either; but I'm pretty sure the protestations (facts) can be notwithstanding.  The "from arch-conservatives" is, as rayk pointed out, is just a qualifying clause (actually, it's some other type of clause, but my grammar school days are far behind me.) Sheesh, I can't believe that my grammar is being critiqued. Some posters don't ever capitalize, capitalize, people are spelling "wear" "ware", and one frequent poster writes in a bad caricature of 19th century parlance aided by a thesaurus, if I may be so bold.

Somehow I'm guessing that you and the Dandy haven't been married As long as you have some taste (as everyone on this forum does), you can probably work with your bride to determine what outfit you and your groomsman will be wearing. But it's not just a cliche when people say that your wedding day is more for the bride than it is for the groom. Bradford

Well yes but the reason I told you about that was because you were putting together quite a complicated syntax, and whereas the people who spell wear wrong probably just made a typo, and same being for capitalisation, by the way if you were referring to me as the 19th century writer, perhaps that is because I am British. (Although I do not think that you were, as I do not post frequently). By the way, don't get agitated about it I did not mean any insult towards you, I just thought it might better your very good English (the main reason I commented was because the rest was perfect English)

Yes, I do hope my love of clothes doesn't cause problems in the future....

No offense was taken. And I was not refering to you as the 19th century writer. Peruse some posts, and I am certain you will ascertain of whom I speak

To suggest that someone has "no taste" because he doesn't know a rule (which, once someone mentions that it is a rule, he will know and choose whether or not to follow) is absolutely absurd.  It should be obvious that knowledge of a rule (or even all the rules in the proverbial book) and taste have absolutely nothing to do with one another.  Taste is more than the knowledge of rules.
Rules are coming from taste of people who managed to made a rule of their taste because they were good looking... So following no rules comings from many years of fashion means you can not be "sharp" It is like people who wants to becme chessmaster without learning any theory...

Grammarian I'm not,
ernest seems to be the prominent grammarian of the board. Is ernest the alter ego of dug? Maybe he announced it but I missed it.
