There’s some exciting news afoot in the world of En Brogue, and I’m so pleased I can finally share one of my new projects with you (yes, there’s more than one new project in the pipeline!). To celebrate its new Shoetopia department, Harvey Nichols asked me to illustrate some of my favourite flat shoes that […]Read more "En Brogue illustrates for Harvey Nichols!"
Last week I found an old CD in my car. It turned out to be a 10 year-old recording by a little known band called Trago. They sounded a bit like a less polished version of Franz Ferdinand; like ‘posh punk’ if that were an actual genre. The bass player in Trago was me. I […]Read more "I’m in the band!"

This obsession has escalated since I started this blog, since I’m always looking for interesting floors to use as a backdrop to the pictures I constantly take of my feet.

This is my favourite trend to talk […]Read more "new season trends now: camouflage print"

I know, I know, some of you have been telling me about the wonders of these shoes for a while now, but this is the first time I have tried them out for myself. The joy of these sandals, for those of you that don’t […]Read more "what to buy in the heatwave: bathing shoes"
I don’t ask for much in a man. A good sense of humour, a non-smoker and good shoes are top of the list. So I’m lucky that Mr Brogue has always had a great shoe collection since we met 17 years ago, save for a questionable pair of Reebok Classics in 1997. But this does […]Read more "the trouble with liking boy shoes is you end up looking like your boy"
