There are shoes that stand out, they look good, and do the job. Some are versatile and can be worn both casually and formally. One such shoe is the Brogue.

It also inspired me and made me want to write about Mohair, and about a brand that was in the mid-twentieth century, was the leading brand for suits using Mohair fabric and is still today held in very high regard.
