Brogues have been around for ages and are usually described as mostly a smart shoe that can be easily combined with a lot of styles. Although some people say that this type of shoe originated in England, The true original brogues have got Scotish and Irish roots. Although Brogues are considered smart it must be said that in the 1930’s gentlemen never used to wear brogues for special occasions or business especially brown brogues. For some reason in those days it was required to wear a plain black shoe for business and special occasions. The black Shoes were considered more formal but people got kind of bored of that look and were more attracted by the different colour combinations and patterns of the new brogues shoes as the leather industrys were making progress.
