Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Brogues in Espresso Leather

Absurdly stylish and well-crafted brogues, available right this very minute for pre-order.

It seems I say this nearly every day, or at least every week, but Taylor Stitch appears to have outdone themselves again. The brand always delivers on items that are somewhat unexpected, especially its spring-ready Telegraph Collection. Our pals in San Francisco blend a classic design touch with a bit of rugged edge, all wrapped up in a line of suiting and accessories that’s got plenty of timeless appeal. So it goes with the Taylor Stitch Brogues in Espresso Leather, a stunning dress shoe from a brand that cut its teeth making rugged menswear essentials like leather boots and chambray shirts. Yet, the Taylor Stitch Brogues in Espresso Leather carry on the brand’s focus on quality and style quite nicely. Another great part about the Taylor Stitch Brogues in Espresso Leather? They fit right in with other TS essentials, no questions asked. Made from beautiful Espresso full-grain leather — a nice departure from tan or light brown dress shoes — these handsome brogues cover all your bases in terms of an utterly classic dress shoe that you’ll have for years and years to come. It starts with handmade construction in Mexico, and it carries through to small touches like the sheepskin lining for a clean fit and plenty of comfort. Goodyear welt construction means you can keep these ridiculously stylish Taylor Stitch Brogues in Espresso Leather around for a heck of a long time, too. That durability is going to be crucial, because you can wear these stylish men’s dress shoes with nearly anything (aside from shorts, I’d say).

Rolled denim and chunky socks? No problem, these Taylor Stitch dress shoes were made for it.

Seriously, Taylor Stitch hit the nail on the head with this pair — it’s somewhat rare to find a pair of dress shoes that look just as great with cuffed dark blue denim (see above) as they do with one of the brand’s expertly crafted Telegraph Suits, but that’s what the Taylor Stitch Brogues in Espresso Leather achieve. They’re only going to get better with age, but the toughest part about the entire process isn’t breaking ’em in … it’s waiting for them to arrive. Yes indeed, these bad boys should ship out just in time for summer wedding season — I’d imagine they’ll look mighty fine with a navy linen suit and a knit tie at your first outdoor shindig when the thermostat climbs. For now, I’d wager you’ll want to devote plenty of thought as to how to style the Taylor Stitch Brogues in Espresso Leather; this is a classic pair of footwear that again drives home that Taylor Stitch ethos: They always outdo themselves.

Will the Taylor Stitch Brogues in Espresso Leather be putting a dent in your bank account? How would you style them?
