Initially used by Irish men only as outdoor/country footwear, the brogues were sturdy shoes with decorative, water-draining perforations.  Today they can also be worn in social or business contexts, making them a must in any gentleman’s wardrobe.  Just take a look at the Anatomia’ Brogue Boots ($570) you see here, to get a better picture.

Handcrafted in Italy by Officine Creative, this pair of brown leather boots is punctuated with brogue-inspired perforations, sitting on a wooden heel and finished with a rubber sole for good traction.  More than 100 traditional techniques ( like advanced washing and burnishing finishes ) were performed to achieve an authentic patina, giving the shoes a lived-in look that is still totally polished.  Combining easily with anything you wear ( especially jeans, chinos, and casual looks ), the ‘Anatomia’ Brogue Boots are perfect for the autumn season, making you stand out both at work or at a weekend party.
