    @TNScotsman, there could be a group formed for discussion of Orders of Chivalry within the XMarks domain with off-forum discussions. There might be one already.

    In the menu bar at the top to the right of 'Meet the Staff', there is a drop-down menu item called 'Community'. The first item under there is 'Groups'.

    I can recall when the Groups function was first discovered, there was almost a stampede for creating discussion groups and a lot of forum traffic died down for a while, almost to the point that the groups were the main traffic for a short period. It appears they are still being utilized, but not to the extent that they once were.

    From the discussion here, am I correct in the idea that Ghillie Brogues equate to wingtips with a suit, hence they work with Argyll jacket and/or waistcoat, and Prince Charlie should generally use oxfords that I would wear with a tuxedo? It will be a bit before I have my Prince Charlie on again, but there is a bit of a tradition of it at the evening Christmas Eve service we attend each year so am working to properly refine things and do it correctly. Without a bride dictating things I'll have the freedom to do it right!
    Personally, I don't own ghillie brogues and simply wear other shoes that I own while kilted. Some are oxfords and some are derbies, some with cap toes, some with broguing and some with both. Mostly I just choose whatever I feel like on a given day although I tend towards cap toes and oxfords for smarter events.

    For formal events, I have a pair of cap toe oxfords from my military days that are highly polished that used to be my go to. Last year, I got a pair of buckle brogues that I plan to wear for higher end formal events in the future.
