What does it mean?
Characterised with distinctive punched holes and pinked trims, the brogue is synonymous with Great British style and craftsmanship, a design that translates across smart and casual, relaxed and formal, country to city.
Born from humble beginnings, the brogue originated as a working man’s shoe made for Scottish and Irish farmers at the turn of the 19th Century, where the perforated uppers allowed effective drainage in the marshes. Over the next century the brogue quickly became a familiar style through the jazz era and went on to style the greats of Hollywood such as Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Elvis himself.
To date, the brogue remains the footwear staple for every gent’s edit, where it has evolved through the years to become a traditional dress shoe instantly recognised with its iconic punching and serrated finishing.View more Mens Brogues styles
