The names of different menswear dress shoes is similar to the starbucks red cup debate - it matters but it really doesn't matter in a sense. In a nutshell, 'brogue' refers to the perforations (small holes) designed to drain water from the feet. In other words, it only mattered to our ancestors. On the other hand, Oxfords are shoes with a closed lace giving a sleek appearance.
Oxfords and Brogues compliment any weekend casual look. With a crisp pair of denim rolled at the cuff, you're ready for a few hours of walking downtown like Blake and George from The Gent's Lounge. By going with a distressed leather material to show a little wear & tear, you can even pair them with a pair of chinos for most casual dates and occasions. Never be afraid to pair them with a suit for a classy vintage effect - you're sure to get a few compliments.
