medwards said:While I too have never been terribly comfortable with black full brogues, the London tan versions on the far right of this picture were made for me by the folks who are now Cleverley over two decades ago -- and they have been a mainstay of my wardrobe ever since. Of course, I am of that age where the term "older gentleman" is one of the more pleasant of descriptions.
All three are very handsome, medwards, a credit to you and Cleverley.
Brown, tan and burgundy brogues simply have a panache that black brogues cannot match. Austerity brogues might work well in black, however. I have a pair of semi-brogues in black that I quite like, but that's as much broguing as I want in black, I think.
