    You need to ask the belt police Donkey, make sure it's exactly the same same make colour and leather/plastic of you shoes / boots. And also will it withstand the Yorkshire weather.

    Are you having a laugh or are you getting a bit touchy about this belt issue? It’s hard to tell on the internet. I’d like to think it’s the former but you Yorkshiremen are not exactly renowned for your sprightly sense of humour!

    (I grew up at a time when Friday’s “comedy hour” on the telly was ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ followed by “I didn’t Know You Cared”!!)

    Perhaps you will never know, but I always wondered why the cops (sorry I meant to say bent b******s) took my belt and shoes off of me every time I got nicked. It must have been to compare them, to see if they were the same colour.

    As well as slashing my made to measure jacket with a Stanley knife and trying to frame me and my brother, but failed because they got their lies wrong in court. etc etc.

    Brilliant and apparently based partly on a famous cricketer !
    There is another sketch 'Doctor George Whitebread group therapy'.

    On the belt subject,I always used to match belts to footwear but in the last couple of years I wear Navy belts with Navy trousers or jeans.
    I tend to wear Argyle socks if I think that my clothes need a colourful addition but a multi coloured belt could do the same job.

    The problem with matching your belts to footwear means that every time that you buy new shoes in a different shade of brown/tan/ox blood etc you need to find a belt that matches and to be honest I have too many shoes and belts as it is,plus finding a belt that matches Sebago 'oiled leather' is going to be a difficult task.

    Why complicate things...

    Winter?: black leather
    Formal?: black leather
    Blue/white stripe grosgrain
    Next

    I suppose it helps that my non-black footwear is all summer casual

    Good clips them Donkey.

    On the Monty Python 4 Yorkshiremen sketch, if It had been a Yorkshire mod and skin with them, they would have probably lived in a Clarks desert boot and Doc Martin shoe box in't middle of t'road.

    Just re watched 2001 A space odyssey recently, and didn't know that the costumes were designed by Hardy Amies, it's a pity that people weren't dressing like he suggested in 2001 never mind 2019.
    Found some sketches he did for the film.

    Pretty cool flight suit.

    Hardy also looked cool.

    Nice waffle knit candy for the skins, designed by Hardy Amies.
