A stylish essential in any well-edited man’s wardrobe, brogues and oxfords are both timeless designs that can easily be dressed up or down. Hand-picked from a range of local and international labels, our edit of men’s brogue and oxford shoes has been curated with professional settings, smart-casual occasions and formal events in mind.
Derived from the Oxonian – a half-boot with side slits that gained popularity at Oxford University in 1800 – Oxford shoes were originally formal shoes made of leather, characterised by a closed lacing design. Now crafted from a variety of fabrications including calf leather, suede, patent leather and canvas, the style is a staple that will work ‘round the clock in your work and weekend wardrobe. Opt for a pair in black or brown for timeless appeal. Contrast laces and coloured soles lend classic styles a contemporary edge.
Originally constructed to allow water to drain when crossing wet terrain, brogues were traditionally considered outdoor or country footwear. Characterised by multiple-piece uppers, decorative perforations, serration along the visible edges, and one of four toe-cap styles, modern brogues come in a stylish array of cuts, colours and fabrications. Patent leather designs work best paired with a tailored suit, while suede styles look best worn with cuffed chinos and a button-up shirt.
With a stylish edit of brogues and loafers in a range of contemporary and classic cuts and colours, at THE ICONIC you won’t fail to find the perfect pair.
