Recently @cerneabbas started an interesting Brogues thread :
https://www.styleforum.net/threads/brogues.671261/, it gave me the idea of this Friday Challenge that will put the spotlight on this men's footwear staple.

Everyting is in the title : Wear brogues with a casual outfit. All kind of brogues BTW, longwings, shortwings, Brogue boots, etc.

A few rules :

Full length picture showing all your outfit, chosen to enhance your brogues (at least try!). This picture will be your entry. Of course you don't have to show your face if you don't want to. You can add a picture of your brogues, but it will just be an additional picture that won't be used for the poll.

Never posted before picture.
You can post several entries, but you will have to choose one for the poll.

No ties. The idea is casual wear (we are friday !), and posters from SW&D are also welcome. I am more curious to see some contemporary takes than the usual ageing bloke in his little garden with his country brogues.

Let it run two weeks.
Deadline 8 november 2020

"In a famous scene from the film Point Blank (1967), Lee Marvin walks through a deserted terminal at LAX airport, the sound of his footsteps magnified on the film’s soundtrack. In the director John Boorman’s words, the “polished brogues beat a knell on the concrete floor, the rhythm of the reaper”. After Marvin died in 1987 his widow Pam invited Boorman to choose a memento from his belongings. Boorman selected Marvin’s Point Blank brogues."
