Looking at 50s era pics of my recently passed father-in-law, I noticed he wore gunboats (longwings) with both suits and sport coats. It looked good. I have two black blucher gunboats, in cordovan and pebble grain. In my mind the cordovan is shinier and goes well with suits; conversely the pebble grain is better with sport coats. What are your thoughts? Also, if you don't like gunboats, don't bother saying so. You're obviously retarded.
