Not really. I certainly won’t be voting.Not sure if you guys have spotted the new Challenge featuring the brogue? Maybe of interest?
Yes, point taken. That Inkss outfit was the sort of thing that comes along just once in a blue moon.Not really. I certainly won’t be voting.
I just don’t think I am on the same wavelength as others who put their crosses in the boxes.
I wonder if the Inkss entry will become the Styleforum equivalent of a sleeper hit ?
You could make a case that brogues are not formal and are therefore casual.Yes, point taken. That Inkss outfit was the sort of thing that comes along just once in a blue moon.
I thought this Challenge could be interesting due to the 'degree of difficulty'. Brogues are not a natural partner for a casual outfit - yes we attempted it in 1969, but it was not wholly successful and short-lived. Smooths, split-toe gibsons and loafers all looked better with the casual stuff we wore then. It may throw up some interesting entries...
I've seen it but I'm still in two minds about brogues, my recent scotchgrain Astronauts fill that space for me.Not sure if you guys have spotted the new Challenge featuring the brogue? Maybe of interest?
DAKS has a very distinctive cut, with often slightly quirky details, that seems to fit me perfectly. After my recent good fortune with the stone Aquascutum and the scotchgrain Astronauts, my one remaining object of desire would be something like a DAKS CrombieDAKS suit bought new with tags on ebay and Alfred Sargent shoes.
The suit seems to be in a more 'contemporary' and softer cut, with almost neapolitan shoulders.
Thank you sir - compliments always welcome.I'm new to the forum, Luigi, so it wouldn't be my place to say. But I've just been scrolling through the thread and I think it's great. Some brilliant contributions from you all.
@ Thin White Duke - been checking your blog out. It's really good. It takes a lot of work to put together something like that so I take my hat off to you. We're about the same vintage as well so some of your old photos bring back a few memories, I can tell you.
Yes, it is a place where we can post with confidence, knowing that any critique will be offered in a gentlemanly mannerThank you sir - compliments always welcome.
Doing the blog is a labour of love - or it used to be till Wordpress changed their editing format and it’s a nightmare to work with now!
As for @Luigi_M’s question I think not only are your contributions relevant but extremely welcome along with @Mercman and any other recent joiners to the thread, which some people were trying to kill off not long ago. The Thread Goes On!
