Sometimes Reiss offers nice classic garments, but it's usually hit or miss (and on the expensive side). I like both jackets, Trots, but I'd go for other colours. Anyway, enjoy your find!

I saw a geezer wearing one of these the other week. I do like that dark brown suede colour. A bit pricey but good quality.

I got one like that out of TKMaxx a couple of years ago that has a zip instead of the buttons. It is not made by Oliver Sweeney or Reiss tho' and indeed has no logos on the outside. .



. . it is made by Lam*retta. .😄


. . and cost a tenth of the Oliver Sweeney number. . ;D

Okay, now before anyone says it, the laces have got to go! But I wouldn't mind these in oxblood, or thesuede one:

Yes, those laces are straight off of a ghillie brogue. . 8)

Nice shoe tho'. I have a similar pair to the leather by Ted Baker in a slip on . .

+1, those laces are an abomination, but the shoes are lush!

I come to speak in defence of the tassle. If you lose the laces, you lose the tassles no?. Shurely shum mistake.

OK they look silly on the leather ones but, I for one quite like them on the suede ones. Maybe shorten the laces and re-attach the tassle?

Brogues are becoming High Street fashionable again, so naturally I'm going off them. I'm heading more towards 2 eyelet derbys and pennies these days
Do it well

On the suede, not "terrible" and I agree, the laces look wa-a-a-a-a-a-y too long
