^^^Burwood pre-Prada!!! They were my first real shoe, grabbed in sale from a well renowned shop ("Al Duca d'Aosta") on 06 january 1984. I queued up in front of shop's door since 05 AM to be sure I was getting them.
Sturdy as iron, they withstood anything except my ex wife's rage during our divorce.

This is cool but if you want to put an entry we need a full length picture...
Thanks for the reminder.
I was just posting this to show something a little off the beaten path. It’s not meant to be an entry.

Why not make an entry?
Your shoes above would be the base for many fine casual attires.

Purple...Minnesota Vikings ?
Who are the Brogues made by ?
Purple is the school color for Kansas State University. (KSU only has one official school color, which is unusual.)

These are Allen Edmonds Cronmoks. They were originally a dusty blue color. I dyed them purple myself.

I was going to ask, nice job on the dye.

We know that they put broguing on some of the most business-formal oxfords but their provenance is that of a country shoe so my preference is to lean towards derbies and wearing them with casual outfits mostly. I don’t like oxfords in the first place (they don’t work for my high insteps) and even though they’re fully accepted by now, I still think broguing on formal shoes is a bit of an incongruent combination. Just my opinion.

Anyway in keeping with the above here’s one of my favourite casual travel outfits when I’m heading to the northern states (in this case Buffalo NY) during cooler weather:
