A classic brogue never goes out of style — but it doesn’t only have to be worn on dressy occasions either. Men’s labels reworked the style this season by graphic kiltie detailing or heavy lug soles for a more casual look. Whether your style is grungy or preppy, consider the brogue a new staple.
Below, see five different ways to wear this season’s coolest brogues:
A thick lug sole as seen on this Grenson style is a cool update on a classic shape. Give it a grungy spin via dyed denim, a graphic T-shirt and skater accessories.
Your next black-tie affair is covered via Christian Louboutin’s classic brogue wingtip. Pair with a crisp white shirt and black tuxedo: a no-brainer.
Have a bit of fun with your office look with colored leather, like this Paul Smith burgundy brogue. Wear with dark denim, a smart blazer and printed shirt.
We know, we know: You want to wear sneakers on the weekend. But a tanned suede brogue from Brunello Cucinelli will polish off a more casual look (even when worn with a wild Hawaiian print shirt).
A night on the town requires sleek dressing. Vivienne Westwood’s patent brogue boot is an unexpected silhouette and will look sharp no matter the occasions. Pair with a cool leather jacket, slim black denim and silver jewelry.
