    I notice Dr Who has bumped up the sales of black brogue boots, they are starting to pop up on my radar more often. and I 'm interested to see what the experts think.

    Come on chaps.


    Ps I've seen some very nice suede ones with red laces, edging and holes.

    It's totally possible!

    Stay away from the blue jeans, but chino's should be cool - cream, grey, burgundy etc. Also the sock choice would be quite key here - something fun and interesting maybe. I picked up some polkadot socks from TK Maxx a couple of weeks ago and they're great!

    Have you thought about switching out the laces? I'm thinking nice red laces would give a shot of colour and also help to make the shoes more casual.

    I don't tend to wear black shoes with anything other than black or grey trousers/jeans.

    But's that just me.
