    Casual Brogues

    Hi all,

    Just wondering what everyone's views are on casual brogues, say brown suede ones for example, and how they should be worn. I.e. can they be worn with t-shirts and chinos or should you always stick to jeans and a casual shirt?

    Traditionally, brogues used to lean towards the casual side on the spectrum of dress shoes. A suede pair or less dressy leather pair can looks great with chinos and a denim jacket in my opinion.

    Tees, chinos, jeans, shirts, all fine.

    A certain type of brogue - brown or tan, in suede or distressed leather - will go just about anywhere in a casual context.

    I take pride in my red suede brogue boots. I'd go as far as chinos, but I personally would stick to shirts and a cardigan.

    What do you wear with you red suede brogues?

    I have paired mine with dark jeans and a navy shirt in the past. Other than that I have trouble making them work.

    Personally I'd wear brogue with chinos, but not with a t-shirt. I think brogues go better with shirts but that's just one guys opinion ha ha. I'm sure some guys can make brouges and t-shirts work together.
