The stitched Derby has become a chic accessory, a versatile shoe whose look is both classic and understated. And to think that the decorative perforations (aka “broguing”) weren’t created out of the necessity for style: in the nineteenth century, they were designed to prevent farmers from getting their feet soaked by draining water from the shoe. But not any more: today, a brogue is the most casual-chic shoe a man can wear... Perfect for our For Gentlemen Only selection.
