Maybe he meant leather laces with this?:

One thing about undershirts is yes they look unsightly under a button down, but this is fixed with a V neck undershirt.I've never known anyone to wear one with a tennis shirt. But in the summer months excessive sweating can ruin an otherwise fine button down polly cotton with unsightly sweat under the arms and the back, so sometimes an undershirt is a necessary evil with them

Bang-on. Light-colored tennis shirts get sweated through by yours truly at noachian rates, so needs mustwith the v-neck undershirt.

My main interest was in trousers at this stage so I focused on a couple of fabric books which included the dogtooth and a range of other larger and smaller dogtooth checks. My tailor said regrettably it is very hard to find any thing but black and white. In Prince of Wales check there were many different options and weights of cloth. I did not ask about mohair.
All the cloth comes from English factories and all the cutting, tailoring and finishing is done by my tailor and his small group of associates in and around Ilford.
I had the first consultation (at his house actually) then went back for a fitting after two weeks. There were some small alterations and I collected them after another week. The matching buttons took a little longer so he fitted horn buttons first. I wore the trou a couple of times and then took them back for the matching ones and one further tweak (he made the waist smaller by ½ inch).
He is a very nice man BTW!

I wear an v-neck undershirt even under polos, as the New England summers are brutal and humid, and with my Northern European blood, I sweat at the sight of sun... so the undershirts have a two-fold purpose: 1.keeps me from looking soggy in the summer and 2.provides me with an extra layer of warmth in the harsh New England winters(gets down to -30 degrees here). 

We get bloody cut-off in Lincolnshire.That reminds me,get the Supplies in !!!smile.gif

Brownie, I suppose the dm brogue shoes are nice, but personally I prefer long wing shoes with leather soles and no yellow stichings. The latter just defeats the purpose of wearing smart dress shoes imo. The yellow stichings just reminds me of a pair of boots for kicking around in. I personally prefer either loake royals or a pair of floresheim kenmoors. Floresheims are much more affordable though, and they do make decent classic long wings.

What does everyone think of the solovair brogue stable boots btw?

And does anyone own a pair of these? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ikon-Originals-Toe-Cap-Skinhead-Mod-Brogue-Shoes-Ox-Blood-/370662842759

Can anyone please post that photo, from Margate '70 I think, of the lads kicking over some motorbikes outside what looks like a guest house? I'm buggered if I can find it anywhere. We just want to inspect the main perpetrator's strides. Ta.

I just got mine, so i cant say anything about long term durability, but they seem very well built, thick in a way. Plus; they look beautiful.
