Well, I decided to rectify the belt loops problem myself yesterday. All I needed was a seam ripper and a sharp pair of scissors and I was done in less than 15 min. In fact is went so smooth, that I decided to take the belt loops off my other trousers I wear with braces(two more pairs). I imagine if you are not adventurous enough to try this yourself, a tailor would probably not charge very much for this kind of operation. But I like these DIY projects.... smile.gif

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

Hahaha...I apologise for even entertaining the idea that you might!  In that case, flawless as always.  And thanks for the info - splendid thrupenny bits!
