Nice? Not?

while I like the thought of an austerity brogue this model seems awfully busy with the spacing of the double lines of stitching.

I like austerity wingtips and these are charming. I rather like the double stitching. Details please?

not.  too forward but not refined.

I don't really like, but I'm not sure why...

I like them.....I like my shoes fairly simple; these shoes go right to the line without going over.  I personally don't like wingtips, but these are beautiful shoes...I think they will age and wear well.....Always, my first consideration is how they fit.....when I first put on a pair of shoes or boots, I have to feel I can  walk all day in them without discomfort....then I usually buy them.  I like the double stitching....they would look incomplete with single stitching.

Double line pushes them over the edge to me. As someone mentioned above, an austerity brogue should be, well, austere.

It's the clunky proportion that throws it off for me. Although if it rocks for you it's perfectly fine.

If you squint a bit, the stiching almost looks like a tribal tattoo.

I took another look at them and I happily stand my ground, austere rules be damned. I would agree that the double stitching would be unecessary in a black finish, but in brown, it makes the shoe.

Not bad. Not great..
