I like Derbies and Oxfords, but i think Derbies are more versatile.As the man said different strokes for different folks,some people dont like boots, unbelievable though it may seem.
The leather (at least the colour) made me think of the last brogues you bought.I like these but I suppose that the negative is that they arent versatile ?
Probably expensive but I do like Paraboots leather.
By a strange coincidence we were talking about Saxone today (I had seen some on Ebay and mentioned the shop that was here).These aren't my best brogues.
Labeled "Saxone of Scotland" but, truth be told, made in Italy of - at least - questionable quality leather.
Yet, four years ago, they were the first pair of my new wave in buying good shoes (along with an identical pair in tan): so I'm somehow sentimental about them.

The shops were just called Saxone though and not limited to Scotland. They were probably the best bet for leather shoes in the High Street. Then they closed and Lilley and Skinner and Timpsons had gone too. High Street options were more limited.By a strange coincidence we were talking about Saxone today (I had seen some on Ebay and mentioned the shop that was here).
By the 70s they seemed to sell cheap fashion shoes but they had been a well known name,even Bond in Goldfinger 'put on the battered old pair of nailed Saxones' before beating Goldfinger at golf.
I just had a look at their online catalogue and I like the look of some of the Loafers.
I like the check trousers,its definitely the weather for heavier weight trousers here.
