These are things of beauty and along with the Church Shannon perhaps the best of the English made plains that I have seen.

 

Alas they are far to good ( and probably far too expensive ) for my needs..I am looking for a shoe to wear to football matches mainly,I will be wearing Farah trousers and an Aquascutum Harrington or a Barbour jacket ( navy),so I thought a nice pair of plain Derbys with dainite soles for the wet weather would fit in well.

I don't want to look like an average football fan,as I like to get off and do my own thing away from the herd (sorry if that sounds snobby because I am not) and away from the police trying to usher you into the ground as quickly as possible...but there has to be a certain level of practicality to the dress,being out in the elements and  standing on concrete,maybe having to walk a fair distance all to be taken into consideration.

 

BTW Gsvs5 I am sure I remember you mentioning lads in your area wearing Lotus Veldtschoen in the 70s,I bought a pair of Barker Ludlow last year,and when I saw a picture of Veldtschoen I think that the Barkers copy their look.

I think there might be something here that fits the bill:

maybe the Foreman oxford?
