Are these brogues too slim?
Thinking of getting these Ted Baker brogues in the ASOS sale, but I noticed they have a very slim sole and are flatter than usual, so I am slightly unsure. Do you think they would go with jeans (slightly skinny), owing to the shape, or should I get something chunkier?

I'm sure they'd work, but they are a bit too slim for my taste. My benchmark for brogues is Loake's Chester, which I think have the perfect balance. Sturdy enough for walking, but slim enough for office use.
But if you like the Ted Baker's, get them! If you're unsure, order them and send them back if you don't like them. It's an extra trip to the post office, but it might be worth the effort.

It depends how cheap they are. If they're inexpensive go for them as you won't need the sole to last season after season. If they're pricy, I'd say keep looking. ;-)
