I have been pretty obsessed with shoes and socks lately, which lead to several new purchases and also a lot of internet researching about different brands, materials and manufacturers (mainly UK-based ones). Sanders, Mark McNairy and Our Legacy shoes are all made in the same factory in the UK. Alden and Crockett & Jones might produce some very fine shoes but they just don’t suit me yet. Those are two facts I have learned in the past week. Socks shouldn’t be neglected and add a nice finishing touch especially if you roll up your trousers. While browsing many online shops over and over again I came across a lot of nice pairs that would make a fine addition to any wardrobe and I put my favourite ones together above. My next pair of shoes for spring will definitely be from Tricker’s (these are perfect!!).
