When you have brogueing everywhere and a wingtip, it's a "full brogue".  With brogueing everwhere but a cap toe (with or without a medallion), it's sometimes called a "half brogue" - I would put Stitchy's in this category.  With Just the toe cap, and the heel counter if there is one, it's a "quarter brogue" - without a medallion.  That's my understanding, but to be honest the descriptions overlap and vary.  I am fully expecting someone to correct me here.

 

The main thing is, Stitchy's shoes are very nice. cool.gif

Great boots Crusty.  Somehow this feels like a very bold departure from your classic style.  To be honest, although I do like the modern allowance for brown shoes with a suit, I don't particularly like it with something so formal as dark grey or charcoal.  I think it works better with blue, any light colour, or more textured, patterned and country styles.  I'd love to see these boots with some of the softer, tweedy looks you've been sneaking in lately.  Anyway, nice suit, love the PS and your celebrity scarf.  

 

Those cufflinks are very interesting - that portcullis emblem is normally associated with Parliament I think.

Thanks for the comments. Possibly you can't tell from your monitor, but today's suit is actually dark brown, and I also prefer black shoes with very dark grey or navy suits, so nothing as iGent or revolutionary as brown shoes with a dark suit is going on here.

I am inordinately fond of today's scarf - its closeness in color to today's tie gave me the perfect excuse to wear it again.

The cufflinks are enamelled three-pence pieces, dated 1967

Orge, you've lost your mind.  And personally I like it very much.

Very nice, Orge. Love the jacket.

Sleeve length is fairly personal; you'll see a range of linen showing from nothing to almost an inch, and everything in between. Personally, I prefer sleeves to show a minimal sliver (near-zero) amount of cuff when standing normally, as that then results in a nice amount showing as you move around (as opposed to the opposite situation of most of the cuff being visible as soon as you move). Also, unless all your shirts are from the same maker, and made to the exact same measurements, there will naturally be variability in what actually shows when you get dressed in the morning on any given day. So take that into account. Having said all that, most guys here tend to go for about a quarter to a half inch showing, which is fine if you like that amount. Slimmer, shorter suits tend to take a shorter sleeve more easily, as it goes well with shorter length of the jacket and the less trouser break. FWIW, I'd say that the sleeve length in the pic makes sense for that suit & the overall style choices being made.

 

 

 Thanks for the informed opinion, Holdfast. I realy appreciate your taking the time. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 You're better than that anyway, Spoo.
