I have always been torn when it comes to Longwings. I mean, I love brogues and I love a wingtip. But the idea of how heavy they look on one’s foot, particularly me being a small, skinny chap, has put me off for a long long time. But I just can’t deny the fact that I love the swooping of the cap all the way back to the heel. That feature alone has kept me intrigued to the idea of them. But this Longwing by Septieme Larguer (while I would prefer a it only a fraction narrower on the last) is quite lovely. The pattern is spot on and the more that I see a scotch/pebble grain used, the more that I like it, particularly on a double monk (as shown below). It is interesting to see how trends go and while the double monk trend has been in full effect for a while now, I think that a new one will be the added incorporation of pebble grain leather used for semi business attire shoes, as is clearly the case here…. Now if only we could find more colors in the darn leather (pebble grain)!!
