^^^ If an English shoemaker makes the shoe in England why wouldn't they label it that way?   Of course if it is an English brand and they don't make the shoe in England that is a different matter and that is what I was trying to say (if actually made in England it would say so).  All my English made shoes say so.  The English make the best shoes in the world. Not sure of their laws regarding origin of manufacture though.

It simply does not say where they were made inside the shoes. And the rest of what you say is anecdotal.

 

Although you might be right, I am still not entirely certain.

 

But thanks for answering.

I'm not "debating" you.  My guess is that if your shoes don't say so, then they aren't made in the UK.  I could be wrong though as I've only bought (a lot) of English made shoes imported into the States.  why not call Loake and ask them?

I have edited the original post, as they are probably not made in England.

Would this SC (left) go with the trousers (right) both houndstooth?  SC has light blue window pane running through it.  Or is that too pattern matchy?

Never, ever wear pattern trousers with a patterned jacket. I will literally never be this firm about anything else.

 

This is as bad as wearing bad shoes.

I was thinking that but I was also thinking since they were close it was almost like wearing a suit.  This is a no no even if they are different patterns?

Any pattern in the jacket precludes any pattern in the trousers. The only exception is that one can wear a herringbone tweed jacket with tartan trousers, but really, a navy blazer would be better.

Thanks for the input.  I got the trousers for christmas and I'm trying to figure out what to wear them with.  :cheers:

Depends. Are you wearing it while washing your car? Going to the dentist? Testifying before Congress?

They'll look great with a navy blazer, or a dark solid camel hair/cashmere/flannel jacket.

 

Also, for what it's worth, I'm wearing a graphic t-shirt right now. In bed.

Looking at some unstructured neopolitian sportcoats

I normally don't consider 3 button jackets and am not sure how to wear this. Is it like a 3/2 roll or do you button the top on these?

Also the wardrobe I am building is more Anglo American. Does a jacket like this make sense with wingtips and OCBDs (I realize 90% of people would have no idea)

Here is an example
