I love brogues but with size 9 albeit slim feet, I wonder if I would just look manly.

(yearns to look like Katherine Hepburn)

You must be tall,would that offset the length of foot ? me too (Katherine Hepburn I mean)

Hellishday Mon 15-Aug-11 17:52:54

Yes I'm six feet and slim..I may go and try some on. Only thing is, in my size they are so expensive (think£150) so they have to be fantastic!!!!!!
Love your name.....

I love Mr Maupin.....reread all the series last summer and felt very nostalgic.
Shoes are the fact they are not black.
Obviously no other mnetters are into brogues....where is cyb?

He is my favourite author - I love him !
I remember having some excellent brogues years ago,they were from Next when it first started and when things were really good there. And some from Bertie...must be feeling nostalgic too.

I have some from Joules, they're mens but have a floral lining. They were in the spring sale.
You have to get a size smaller though as they come up much larger, also they do look a bit mannish. I don't wear them as much as I thought I would.

oh they are nice ! Joules is one of those shops I don't look in..

GloriaVanderbilt Mon 15-Aug-11 21:26:21

I only got into Joules because they sell it in scats, alongside the barbours and fake pigeons grin

something about inhaling the heady scent of fertiliser can make you suddenly hanker after a pink polo shirt with an applique horse.
