    Unacceptable. If the Marlow is to be worn with a suit it has to be a very very country suit.

    They do have a navy donegal from VBC, had it made up recently: [​IMG] It is a great fabric & was only 419€ for the fully canvased red line MTM. I chose the natural shoulders this time & am very satisfied.

    Hippies? Getting married?

    Third marriage I would assume.

    Yes, it is! IIRC, you got one too. It's a great square!

    I would put the Marlow in the same category as most Alden shoes. It appeals to the part of the MC crowd that leans a bit Ivy and the part of the SWD crowd that likes the more modern J Crew-esque collegiate hipster look.
