SIDE BY SIDE: LEGENDARY BROGUES
We don’t mean to humble brogue, but brogue wing-tip derby’s are having a moment.
Brogues have an innate elegance about them, revisited by designers like Raf Simons, Prada, and Jil Sander time and time again, creeping up on catwalks and crosswalks this time of the year. With a few tweaks, wear a burgundy wing-tip brogue derby casually or proper and preppy. Steeped in historic British fashion, brogues give this gentlemanly look an update this Fall in a rich hue. A colour fix where it counts.
There’s no time like the present to brave the trend, but first, read two ways to style one of our favorite styles this season:
Look 1: The Bro’s Brogue
Perhaps you are a brogue novice. No worries. Look well-read in your de rigueur outfit of dark denim jeans and white T’s. Your minimalist outfit is the perfect backdrop for the shoe’s hue to be the centre of attention. There are no holes in this style — you’re solid.
Look 2: The Pro’s Brogue
You’ve sipped mint julep and bet on horses. When occasion calls, you know how to let your style do the talking. A man of class such as yours will feel right at home and confident in the right pair of dress lace-ups. It’s the shoe that says I’ll meet you for drinks — right after this extremely important meeting. Brogues are for a boss.
