I recently bought a pair of these trousers but my legs are so short they are probably longer than all my other jeans. Wear mine with either white converse or sandals.

I've got those loafers that Remus linked too, in nude. They did rub my heel the first time I wore them, but they go with everything and are really versatile.

If anyone wants any bargain 7/8ths these from Tesco are really nice. I have the black and the navy(which is very, very dark) and for every day wear they are brilliant. They actually fit me better than the Next ones that were raved about.

How could a brogue be 'mum booty' - they're the last thing a 'mum boot wearer' would wear, ironically because they're actually properly masculine looking.

Well, with a name like mine, if Rupert was around . . .

Willies - lordy, I meant wellies

Your WHAT?! smile

Remus - I don't find very flat shoes comfortable, I have a high instep and think this makes some level of heel easier to wear.

And yes I wear that size heel all the time, well unless gardening or walking through mud/fields, then I do put my willies on wink

Nicer heeled loafer

They are all a no from me, sorry. The Lands End ones are hideous, imho and so are the last pair. The Gabor pair are slightly less gruesome but I don't think they'd work, as they are too solid looking.

Nice loafers here
I think I saw these in silver in store and they are nicer than they look on here
Too casual?

Out of the 3 I like Lands End ones.

Opinions on any of these (office wear) so need to be smartish and comfy
or these
or these
Or none of them?

low heel pointy toe shoes look really chic.
depends what you're doing, really.

Lol. You guys!!
I didn't mean the mum boots thing.
I was just teasing.
You carry on with your man shoes..


By not my

Some people get v sniffy on S&B. I like lots of things that other people would be aghast at - so what? My insulting brogues, Nehru was hardly dissing anybody's grandma.

And how is it sexist to say that something is unfeminine? Don't get that at all.

Yeah, true, best ignore.......

hedgefund Sat 18-May-13 20:38:36

come one nehru knows how to rankle people, especially by mentioning mum boots grin

CointreauVersial Sat 18-May-13 20:34:15

I didn't see the rudeness from Nehru, she just described brogues as unfeminine. That's her opinion. Not quite sure what there is to get worked up about; we're talking about fashion choice here, not equality and women's rights.

Loafers also remind me of The Style Council and the least said about them the better...

landofsoapandglory Sat 18-May-13 20:15:37

I'm not sensitive Cointraeu, there are ways of saying things without being bloody rude, which IMO Nehru was.

hedgefund Sat 18-May-13 20:14:42

i meant LOAFERS remind me of swing out sister grin

hedgefund Sat 18-May-13 20:13:42

thanks for the explanation, i imagine i would look like i was just wearing throusers that were too small for me grin

brogues remind me of swing out sister in the 80s for some reason. they were dull then and are now (imho) grin brogues are more fun
