Guide to brogues: the wish list

Brogues, specifically the wing-tip variety in closed Oxford or open Derby styles, are a useful investment, and this season they’ve been seen on catwalks from Burberry to Valentino. New designs and finishes make them an ideal choice when you want something smarter than a trainer but not as dressy as a monk strap. Depending on the colour, brogues work with jeans and a flash of bold sock, and they look excellent with traditional tweed and tailored trousers or with rolled-hem heavy-duty chinos for a less formal look. A pair like the Pembrokes from a specialist like Crockett Jones will last for years, while the high-street version will give you a couple of seasons’s service. Upkeep is key: polish them regularly and use shoe trees to prolong their life
