Lots of angst over Strands today. I still have four pair and they are fairly indestructible. Black, Brown, Walnut, and Dublin Leather (MTO). I wear black and brown with suits without issue. Walnut color nicely dulled a little with Saphir light brown, usually worn with sport coat combos. Dublin leather with brown flannel or tweedy stuff.I can't remember what he called me? I think he said i was brown nosing DWW? It's funny cause someone called me a troll yesterday for disagreeing with him. Name calling is so diverse.
Your last paragraph, once again, insists that all suits are formal. This is a far more ridiculous rule that you are in fact inventing while you simultaneously claimed DWWs oxfords with suits rule was "Gentleman's Gazette." Such loops of logic!
I'm not "claiming" Strands are in the same category as other semi brogues. Semi or half brogue oxfords are in fact a category. To which strands belong. Within any category there is of course varied expressions. Within this particular category, level of perforation or color might be the most obvious. I'm not sure what part of this you have trouble grasping?
What category would you say Strands belong to, if not semi brogue?
I agree that cap toe oxfords are for suits only but brogues go both ways. Black brogues add some nice texture to a suit, especially if wearing solid shirt and tie.
