Any early morning opinions?

DS, very trendy age 21 wears them. Does that help?

The link goes to a failed ASOS page at my end.

Sorry try this
I guess I know they're in, just not sure they're me, which no one here can help with!

Those are lovely , I have the Clarks Hamble Oak ones which I wear to the office. Brogues are stylish and comfy smile

Yes, they're lovely!

I need these. They are gorgeous.

Do you wear socks with them? The sensible old woman in me is expecting them to rub the ankle...

I have a Hudson pair and they never really look quite right on me. They look too clunky with skinny jeans/rolled up relaxed skinnies to my eye. I think they have probably had their moment so unless you love them or can work that 40's vibe I wouldn't bother.

I like them too, I am very much a flat shoe girl.

I think they're fairly classic. I've worn them for years, during which they've had a few fashion moments. But in between I don't think they look dated - they just go off the radar for a while and are harder to find in the shops. So if you like them, I wouldn't let that worry you.

Fia I normally wear them with those trainer liner things - bit of a pain as they slip but better than rubbing or stinkiness!

Tan isn't my favourite colour but I love brogues!

beautiful brogues! I had the same at high school and still think about them.

Very nice but like Fia, I can't get over the no sock thing and the trainer liners, as said above just don't sit still and do the job.

Have just ordered a pair of these from the clarks outlet site. A good alternative to tan?

Thanks for comments. Been working all day and talked myself out of them, now you've all made me think again!

Do it, they're gorgeous!
