post #26296 of 29409

My comment was more so about the fact that the broguing pattern, especially by the ankle, is different on these than almost all the wingtips that I've seen pictures of lately.

Just because I know what they aren't doesn't mean I know what they are. It isn't an austerity brogue, nor a half or semi brogue. I guess I'd call it a wingtip without a toe medallion. I don't particularly like them.

Why's that? Curious. I know you're not a fan of AE's in general.

Is this pattern houndstooth or something else?

Im a skinny guy, and I have a suit with a lapel width of 2.5", I have a tie that measures 3.25". The tie's colours look really good with the suit, but I am wondering if it is a bit too wide for it.

No. 3.25 is on the narrow side of classic. You don't need to match tie size to lapel size exactly, just make sure they don't look discordant, and really, you need to worry more about your body size when determining tie width than anything relating to your suit. You're absolutely fine.

I'd call that a micro houndstooth.

Ok. I was under the impression that a wingtip was anything that had the W toe cap irrespective of any broguing.

If that shoe was a captoe it would surely be a quarter brogue so I didn't see why it wouldn't still be classified as such with the wingtip.

Because it has a wingtip.

 

There's not a term for a wingtip without a medallion, maybe because a good English shoemaker in the 1930s wouldn't have made one...

 

That's spitballin', though. Not certain. That kind of shoe kind of falls through the taxonomic cracks.

 

I'm afraid I have to disagree with RTC: that's not a micro houndstooth. I'm not sure what it is, though, so this is kind of not a very helpful post.

Ok, I didn't know having a wingtip eliminated it from such classification.

I love shoes, but sometimes they make my head hurt.

I have a nearly identical pair. I really like them, but rarely wear them. When I do it is usually with jeans and an unbuttoned collar shirt. Maybe with a sweater over it and a tweed or corduroy jacket.

I feel like a tie, trousers, or more formal jacket would demand a less casual shoe.

Same here -- and not just when I get kicked in the head.

 

But yeah, having a wingtip automatically means that it isn't a quarter or a half brogue.
