How to wear tan brogues..?
Just joined up as I have a question you may be able to help me with.
I've recently once again started paying attention to what I wear. Since I'm nearing 30 I thought it was about time I stopped dressing like I'm in my early 20s...
As part of this I purchased a pair of tan brogues to help me smarten up, specifically the Grenson Dylan. Part of my reasoning for choosing this shoe was my understanding that a tan brogue is a very versatile shoe and could be worn with a variety of outfits/trousers. My problem is my experience since purchasing is that it doesn't seem to go with very many of my outfits at all!
So my questions are:
1) what are the traditional/usual items worn with a pair of tan brogues;
2) should I consider turning them to a darker shade of brown to make them more versatile and, if so, how should I go about it, i) buy some dark polish, ii) take them to a cobbler?
Any other thoughts or advice anyone has is also very welcome!
