Introducing the Esquire Brogue

To celebrate Esquire’s 20th, we joined forces with My-wardrobe.com and Grenson to create an exclusive version of the William brogue.

Lee Douros, My-wardrobe.com’s menswear buyer, and Tim Little, Grenson’s creative director, worked on the design, which is an overhaul of the existing William brogue.

The William brogue is a Goodyear-welted shoe, which is the traditional British method of construction. The shoe’s two-tone, split-suede uppers sit on the last (the mould) for up to a week to take the correct shape.

The shoes are made in four stages: clicking, closing, lasting and finishing. The first refers to cutting the leather, the second to creating the upper, the third to the moulding of the shape, the fourth to the polishing. Only 50 pairs of the Esquire William brogue by Grenson, available at www.mywardrobe.com , £279

Here's a video on how it came together:
