Shoes: Correspondents

Tuesday, March 30, 2010
Correspondent (or sometimes co-respondent) shoes aren't a particularly easy style to pull off. Almost always brogued, they're usually black and white or brown and cream. They're fairly rare these days, and have picked up unfortunate connotations of dandies, rogues and generally people who are a little too keen to have their clothing make a statement.

Still, illustrations like the one above do still make me hanker after a pair of brown/cream correspondents to wear for the summer. Perhaps this year I ought to get some - I like to think there's always room in my wardrobe for something a bit silly.
