A pity that Loake only do the Waverley in black though,I think that if they did it in Tan grain leather it would be a very nice looking shoe,and I would definitely buy a pair.

Had a google for Loake Waverleys and they look fine if a bit on the rugged side with the soles. I'm trying to resist searching for a pair of Cleav's black pebble-grain Crockett & Jones boots, as seen early on in this thread.

In London today I noted the 'new formality' is still there and very sombre clothing seems to rule in business districts.  Glad I went for that type of look myself today.

Great, will look for those CBD outfits. Currently thinking on a grey Italian CBD tie as a change to my usual navy blue ground - grey has a formal daywear feel to it which also makes it suitable, I think.

That sombre City look is pretty much my CBD look, if only there was more tie-wearing going on though. Even tie with top button undone - which, I confess, is my longstanding default mode when wearing a tie. Such sprezz lol!

Been revisiting some CBD threads and have to say the Americans really don't get it, boring plain ties, brown shoes, bright colour suits and overchecks. It is as if they have no personal history of suit-wearing somehow, or a very different one. Nothing to learn there. Americans I have experienced in a business context in the flesh though, internal auditors and the like, they do seem to get it - a strange disconnect.

Hmmm...The Australians and Scandinavians seem to be very much on the up tho'.

Sprezz indeed!  I must say, even though that was my default mode for a year or two in the late 60s, I now keep my top button done up except perhaps on the hottest days when I don't wear a tie.
