If you peeked into my closet, you’d know that I love a good pair of brogues. Or a good 10 pairs.


Why not? They’re stylish. They’re versatile. They can be dressy suit shoes or—as is the case with this pair of House of Hounds ‘Lester’ kicks—funky and fun, perfect with jeans or seersucker.

Crafted from brown leather with echoes of a spectator shoe, this long-wing version has natural linen detail on a crepe sole with matching brown laces. Perfect for spring—if it ever really arrives.
