    Have you the name of said shop? I could do with a pair of Church's but I'm loath to pay Regent St prices.

    For dress I have 2 pairs of black Church Diplomats and one pair of black Bally. For smart casual I have 1pair of tan Chiurch brogues and 1 pair of burgundy Church brogues. For real casual I have a pair of black cherry Lucchese ropers, a pair of brown Seibel chuka boots and a pair of tan Eccos. When I'm wearing shorts I mostly have on a pair of Keen Newport H2O sandals, but sometimes a pair of Sperry Top Siders.

    I spent the day in and around Savile Row, Jermyn St etc. getting suited and booted for my upcoming (impending?) wedding.

    Naturally, shoes were far more interesting than the suit itself - although once it's been finished that'll be lovely. I spent a fair while in Cheaney before eventually deciding on a lovely pair from Crockett & Jones:

    Now - any suggestions for shirts and ties?

  7. For your wedding shirt try No 1 Jermyn St., Gieves & Hawkes - the quality is superb and a great range of different fits. The extra cost is really worthwhile.

    Cheers for the recommendation! My work shirts are all TM Lewin/Charles Tyrwhitt but will be looking for something special (but no need to be bespoke)!

    Just make sure you buy a shirt with the right collar for the tie/knot you're going to be wearing. Also, think about armbands to keep your shirt cuff to suit sleeve levels in check.

    A close-to-two year update on wedding shirts - I stuck with TM Lewin in the end! I was taken by an Emmett option but I just find that the TM Lewin Slim Fit off-the-peg fit is just right. Turnbull & Asser and Harvie & Hudson RTW options were tent-like and bespoke was too much coin.

    To get back on topic, I have some lovely Barker tan brogues for smart/casual. For best, I have a pair of Crockett & Jones in deep chestnut and a pair of Tricker’s in black. Both are quarter-brogue oxfords. The patina on the Barker and Crockett & Jones are coming along nicely.


    If I could, I’d wear the above more regularly but they’re too good for work. I typically clock between 15000 and 20000 steps per day in work shoes. So I rotate two pairs of Clark’s which are robust and comfortable even if somewhat less elegant. These are about two years in. They don’t take much of a shine but they put up well with the beating they receive.


    I’m also finally getting the chance to put a birthday present to use - a pair of Tricker’s Stow in Acorn with Commando sole. They’ll be spot on for cooler months - most imminently our autumnal walks through the fields and woodlands (invariably to the pub)!


    Next, I’d love to replace my battered and bruised Chelsea boots and diversify the burgeoning collection with some penny loafers. I’ve got my eye on some Cheaney and Loake 1880 offerings.
