    I much prefer semi brogues myself, anyone under the age of about 35 is too young not to look a bit silly in full brogues.

    Yes, I've got a pair and love them. Be sure to sand them down though or you'll die.

    Mine were cheap too, but then I get all my shoes cheap because my mum works for Clarks :p

    ^^ This.

    Oxfords and Derbys for the win.

    All these young numpty boys asking silly questions like 'Are men's brogues in fashion?' ought to be dragged screaming from their homes and beaten savagely in public.

    Don't see that many others but I like them. John White, £100-ish from somewhere or other. Not massively premium quality but have lasted well and look smart when polished.
