Most often associated with golf shoes, the kiltie adds jaunty layer of intrigue to any pair of kicks. Arguments for the kiltie’s functional value versus preening decorative adornment would probably end in a draw. It’s a fancy mud flap…usually punched-patterned with some brogueing adornment and finished with walrus mustache looking ends.
Here’s a classic kiltie from Church’s archives. Jaunty…yes. Borderline fuzzy…perhaps.
And of course there are shoe makers who take the kiltie strategy to another level of elegance. I’m seeing a granddaddy long legs spider manifest in these babies. But I started drinking early this morning.
It must have been "come to work high and experiment with prototypes day" at Grenson recently.
Suede longwings kiltiefied and sporting a lug sole. Bobby Jones meets Paul Damn Bunyan. Shut up.
Certainly not a dress shoe but nothing but a sturdy casual foundation for your pedal wheel houses...bofe of ‘em. Stylish in an ADG fuzzy kind of way.
Tobacco cords seem to knock these out of the park. Orange polka dot Flusser socks just add sartorial insult to injury.
And best of all…new old stock. Never worn…bought ‘em on eBay for sixty five bucks.
Onward. Staring at the same old DCA/Reagan National Airport carpet.
Blessed to be busy. And probably stuck in San Antonio because of snow back home this afternoon.
Shut up. ADG II
