Shotgun Swag

Fascinating history of these swagilicious brogue shoes worn by GQ contributer Ren McKnight:

“These guys are from Gieves & Hawkes on Savile Row in London. Legend has it that the original perforation pattern was made by firing a shotgun at a pair of cap toes, hence the name “Buckshot Brogues.” I first saw them on [GANT Rugger head designer] Christopher Bastin’s blog, and knew I had to track them down. Now, if only I could grow a Bastin beard.”
