    I'm curious to know what the group thinks about this pair of spectators. (BTW, I'm assuming these qualify as specatators even though they aren't the typical brown/white combo. Someone tell me if I'm wrong). Â I just picked up one of the Haspel seersuckers (blue) from STP. I don't own any white bucks. Can I wear these spectators with the seersucker?

    I absolutely love the way these look. Tan and cream is another favorite of mine. And yes, these should look great with blue and white seersucker...just wear a brown belt, perhaps a grossgrain or cotton belt with leather ends.

    By the way, what brand are these?

    They look like a poxed alien urinated on them, awful.

    Brooks currently is offering these (somewhat) similar Peals: [​IMG]

    I like the tan and dark brown combination. It's not traditional, but I think it looks good. A Harris recently posted a dynamite pair of Vass spectators similar in conception.

    Who makes those?

    I've never seen a poxed alien's urine.  Apparently you have, so I'll defer to your judgment.

    Disagree, but that is one of the funniest similes I've ever heard.

    The open lacing makes the pair shown by HoustonBusiness a little sporty to wear with a suit, in my opinion. Better with an odd jacket.
