Great list to go by! However, I don't completely agree with the Gucci thing. I would wear Gucci horse bit loafers (but that's it, everything else they make is off limits).

Great post, and I always look forward to reading what you say next.

I was in great shape until I read of the cavalry twills. But then I am no longer young and may now be considered "colourful."

Richard ~ I don't agree with the inclusion of Gucci either. The YFs probably considered it a filthy foreign shoe. The Sloane Rangers, of course, took to the Gucci snaffle loafer in droves and it became a veritable badge of membership, along with the Barbour jacket, IMVHO.

Easy ~ I don't 'get' why cavalry twill is blacklisted here. Maybe the weave was too extravagant for them.
