This reminded me a bit of a book I read once on 19th ernie ball strings cobalt century bridge building. Essentially, there were two schools of thought, the British and the French. The British tended to be arch pragmatists and build according to what had not fallen down the last time. Consequently, like the Romans and Normans before them, they tended towards massively over-engineering to be safe, and therefore – like the lovely bridges over the Menai straights – many of them stood the test of time. (With notable exceptions!)
Personally I consider my background neo-classical, but ernie ball steve morse some people consider my work heterodox because I’m interested in things like trade unions, inequality, bargaining power etc. I suppose its possible to be both.

Stripes? Is a microfibre shirt heterodox?
