What is a brogue and what makes Ralph Lauren’s brogues so special?
Traditionally, a brogue is a classic English style of casual shoe marked by high quality, significant weight and durability. Today Ralph Lauren continues the tradition with the creation of our English brogue-style wing tips and penny and tasseled loafers, built to last a lifetime. As is customary, ours are hand-crafted exclusively in England, using the finest leathers around and anchored by our signature Goodyear welted sole — the strongest, most durable sole available. With a focus on materials and technique, England is world renowned as the originator in fine traditional footwear. Our factories in England carry on the time-honored traditions of creating expertly crafted, heritage-inspired footwear.
