Majestic Shipton and Heneage stag slipper

If you’re going to lounge around, do it in style. Shipton and Heneage make traditional shoes, including my most hated shoe: the deck shoe; but they also make some damn fine slippers. It’s probably a bit iffy to take style tips from Alan Partidge, but I’m sure he’d understand the benefits of lounging in a velvet slipper. Available in leopard …

Collar stiffeners a-gogo

Collar stiffeners eh, who’d a thunk it? They’re used to stop collars curling and keep shirts looking sharp.

I have a soft sport for Fly shoes, and at the moment Kurt Geiger have got some Fly Flag boots reduced to £45. It’s different without being try-hard, I like the utilitarian rubber heel and toe which is offset by the red stitching and golden suede.
