    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.

    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.
