Summer Suede’s- From Loafers to Chukkas

Dear All, We are now well into Spring Summer here in London and I’ve certainly been favouring my various Suede shoes and love the versatility and different styles you can create. Suede is synonymous for wearing on the dry, bright sunny days and can really add another dimension to ones outfit with the choice of colours available. This season we have bought quite heavily into Suede and turns out it was a good idea. Suede Loafers- great for wearing with Jeans, Chinos and sometimes even Shorts. They really do have a more relaxed look to them which also presents an […]

Time to plan the NYE Party

Dear All, Hope you had a very Merry Christmas. It’s now that time in between Christmas and New Years where it is possible to either continue the festivities or relax for a few days before seeing the New Year come to it’s end- most likely with a party! There are lots of different options for a New Years party and no matter which you are attending, there is a shoe for every occasion! Black Tie- I would recommend wearing a highly shined black oxford. For a unique yet classy look the Aurora (above) would make a great choice for this […]

Samples- where the inspiration starts

  Dear All, Hope you are having a great week. Many of you may or may not know how long it takes to come up with the model that you see in each Ready to wear collection. It is a long process from an idea that Justin has sketched on a piece of paper to the finished article available to buy online or in store. When I worked on Savile Row and Jermyn St in previous jobs, being part of Management I got to see alot of how the design teams came up with garments ready for a collection which […]

The Madison Loafer- for all occasions.

Hi All, Now I know that Summer is a bit hit and miss at the moment over in England but that doesn’t mean to not start wearing your loafers. The penny loafer is such an iconic shoe that I really feel needs to be worn by more of us, whether it be for work or for casual attire. This season we did 6 colour options in our Madison loafers, 3 Calfskin, 3 Suede. The suede options have been well received which is amazing because the rich tones of green, burgundy and navy really do compliment a spring/summers day outfit. One of […]

Summer is Here – Get Your Drivers Out!

Today is the first day of Summer, the Sun has been out and it is quite humid here in London. I am in a pair of leather sole suede shoes but I wouldn’t be disappointed to have some comfortable driving shoes on today to give my feet not only a bit of a breather, but also a bit of soft comfort. The hotter it gets, the more I lean towards that idea. That’s the thing about the heat, it begs for comfort, ease and simplicity. That is what driving loafers give you. And the great thing about them is that […]

Black Loafers- Not Just For Formal

  Coming into summer we will see plenty of loafers of all different shapes, colours and fabrics. I am an avid loafer wearer when it comes to summer attire and do believe that paired with complimenting socks they can really make an outfit come together. One thing that many of us are still under the illusion of is that black loafers are just for formal occasions, well, this is just a myth and a trend that has to be broken. Now that we are in 2016 its not required to a wear suit, shirt and tie everyday for work, instead many companies […]
