I would like to welcome the latest contributor to The Gentleman, H.L. Griffith.
H.L. Griffith and I first met at a cocktail party whilst traveling the subcontinent. He has written for all the most famous literary journals (and now The Gentleman) and won an academy award in a one off category, ‘Best Musk”.
A rare picture of G.O. Brixley, H.L. Griffith and a young Winston Churchill. We are the young ones in the background.
H.L. Griffith’s first post will be on ‘transportation’ and you can expect it tomorrow. So until then…

In these cold times it can be hard to put on your usual summer plimsolls without getting home after a long day of gentlemanly activities with sodden, dirty shoes and cold toes.

However there is an solution to your problems. Not wanting to look too formal (having to wear your nice black Italian leather suit shoes), too informal (having to wear your tennis volleys) or too bogan (trainers) the answer comes in the form of a nice brown leather shoe.
A fine pair of brogues.
Nothing says comfort, warmth and leisurely elegance like a good pair of brown leather shoes. So when you’re not playing golf, tennis, or attending a winter ball say hello to your new water-proof, dirt-proof and bogan-proof footwear.
