The expression "suited and booted", (to me at least) always meant "geared up and ready for action", and, as, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, it is prime boot season, I thought it would be interesting to see what you gentlemen came concoct, combining suits and boots. All modes are welcome, from evocations of Edwardian formality, to contemporary takes on a combo of suit and boots, to channeling one's inner grouse hunter, complete with tweeds, a shotgun, and a perfectly matched pair of Labrador retrievers.

We'll leave the competition open until 2022/01/17 (for US residents, Martin Luther King Day).

Have at it, gents.

« Geared up and ready for action »… indeed.
Excellent book about English football fans in the 1970s.
Not sure that’s exactly you have in mind Upr though. :-D

Well, I head to the UK and then to Italy tomorrow. I'm taking along several suits and my main duty footwear will be my Edward Green Halifax boots. So, I'll have quite a few opportunities for photos in a suit and boots.

Camera isn't doing me any favors today, but I'm not sure when I'll be in a suit again. My olive pinstripe with my Tricker's, with and without coat.

Giving this thread an extra bump with a second posting . . .

There was a fair amount (five to six inches or so) that fell on NYC overnight last night, into this morning (with a light dusting even now), and the temperatures have fallen to wintry levels (highs of 1C/34F for today). This encouraged me to wear yet more flannel, and a pair of boots with Dainite soles, even as much as the sidewalks are generally clear outside.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Lewin
Tie - Andrew's Ties
Cufflinks - Benson & Clegg, London
Braces - Paul Stuart
Boots - Cobbler Union
Overcoat - Brooks Brothers
Scarf - New & Lingwood
Cap - Paul Stuart

Of course it's up to @upr_crust, but I don't think that's going to count as an entry - normally you have to have a full outfit picture.
Ah, I seen him “advertise” this on a boot sub I inhabit..feel free to delete it. I’m a creature that only appears from the waste down….

I believe that I will allow the entry to go forward, and let the voting public decide whether the entry is valid or not. As Count Orlovsky says in "Die Fledermaus" - "Chacun a son gout."
