    While those from the land of the 'Weej' prefer 'gutties'. :satisfied:

    In Edinburgh, they were, somewhat obliquely, known as 'rubbers'. :paranoia:

    Speaking of Brogues - had a look yesterday at the king of shoes George Cleverley's shop in Burlington Arcade ( http://www.theshoesnobblog.com/2011/05/shoes-of-week-george-cleverley.html)
    wonderful place that had me drooling as did the most wonderful Crombie ive ever seen in The Son of Stag shop at Trueman brewery . Velvet collar , Cashmere and just cut so right - sadly the price at just under £800 put me out of the game ,, a great shop though for traditional ( 50's 60's ) US mens clobber worth a trip for those who have not been .

    In Bradford we called them Smoothie Topped Wedges.
    In early '74 I had a black and brown pair with white crepe soles, lethel on wet Yorkshire flagstones

    Ed, in Embra if you told someone there was a crèche down your street they'd want to know how many cars were involved.

    Even the clocks sound smug in Embra!
