On Jak et Jil they’re agog over a pair of Givenchy ghillie brogues with added buckles, lacing and straps. Ghillie brogues are worn by bagpipers, members of marching bands and are an essential part of Highland dress; I’ve always loved the contrast between the feminine lacing and the masculine brogue. I like what Richardo Tisci has done with the classic shoe, and with a careful bit of crafting you could easily recreate the look.
Loake do a great ghillie brogue, but if you pick up a pair intended for marching they will have a thicker sole which is a footwear trend making waves in menswear at the moment.
