Brogues: “A great cross-seasonal buy” and “a brilliant flat shoe for women who feel the ballet pump is simply too girlie”, according to last Saturday’s Guardian magazine. Perfect for George (and me) in that case.

Simon Chilvers, the Guardian‘s assistant fashion editor, suggests that at the moment they should be worn with slim rolled-up chinos. Chinos are perhaps a little too early, and American, for the Kirrin boys (they were big with American teens in the 50s and 60s). Julian, Dick, George and Anne tend to wear their brogues with shorts, or with straight leg trousers for the boys and simple skirts for the girls, often teamed with blazers and jumpers as part of their school uniforms (see previous posts on Five on Hike Together),
