Not really. Trad gents of the time, at least the younger ones wore khaki, woolen crew socks, desert boots, loafers, or tennis shoes , lacoste, perry, or oxford cloth shirts, baracutta jackets, usually in khaki. That's what I wore.

Tommy Hilfiger folded? Huh. Explains why I found a useable "September" brown twill at Burlington Coat Factory on Sahara in Vegas for $19 last year.

I don't know if the TH company got into trouble in the past. I didn't get that bit of the ACL comment.

So whats the consensus? I think they are clarks DB's. Maybe not black but def. clarks.

They're probably brown boots, which is what McQueen seemed to wear most often. The sole in these photos seems thicker, different to that of a Clarks desert boot. They look like a style of boot called a playboy. The nearest available equivalents today are probably by George Cox or Sanders, although the soles of these seem different in their own way, too thick. The George Cox has a rounded toe, which fits the bill here. McQueen wore the occasional shoe with more of a point, though, which is what the Sanders has, and the Sanders are better made. It's a surprisingly huge area that, in lieu of a life, I've often explored in my blog.

Anyone notice who wrote this post?

"Jared Paul Stern writes the Classicist column for Luxist."

I imagine this is the same guy that allegedly tried to extort Burkle a few years ago? Strange.

I didn't know anything about this. Just googled it. Wise of you to put "allegedly" in italics. This is from Wikipedia: "Stern ... subsequently filed a civil lawsuit against not only Burkle, but also Frank Renzi, Michael Sitrick, William Sherman, The New York Daily News, Hillary Clinton, and Bill Clinton."

Strange. The whole ACL post has disappeared.
