Brexit has officially taken place but what does that mean for our valued European customers? Whereas some businesses on both sides may be shutting up shop to customers in the UK and on the continent, we – well, mainly our web guru Gareth – have been working hard to make sure there are no barriers to your shopping experience. In fact, our European customers stand to benefit from the UK’s EU exit as the VAT you pay will generally be less than the 20% customers pay here.
The process should be simple.
Simply select your goods of choice. The price advertised will not include the VAT. This will be added when you get to the checkout stage and will represent what tax you would normally pay in your country. Your order will be shipped with all fees paid too, so there is little or no impact on ordering from us if you are in the EU. It is business as usual.
Some of our best customers are European, so it stands to reason that we want to take care of you. We have tried to make it at easy as possible using intricate web code and multiple tax rates across Europe.
We continue to operate as usual for customers who live outside the EU too.
How long have you worked at Herring Shoes? I started the website for Adrian (Herring) in about 2000 as a web developer but I joined the business full-time in 2010. Since 2018 I have been the MD.
Favourite style of shoe and why? You can’t have just one favourite because times change and so do your tastes. My first favourite in the 1990s was a burgundy beef-roll loafer which I thought was the coolest thing for a 20-something to wear; although I also had the burgundy Dr Martens Chelsea boot too, so maybe I had some style?
Now, I favour the military and utilitarian styling of the Badminton, for example. I just love everything about it, from the way the leather develops over time to the bright eyelets that give it personality, while being strictly functional as a pared back boot.
Favourite style of boot and why? My most loved pair (just ahead of the Badminton) is the Exmoor boot. Adrian and I visited the Fox brothers mill in Somerset to design the tweed and then we custom designed a boot with Cheaney that would show it off.
In a way, it is the opposite of a utilitarian style with the flamboyance of a rich tweed that you can make a suit from (I have and so have some of our customers!) It is unique as a style, so I feel special when I wear them and even more so as I appreciate the thought and effort that has gone into creating them.
What is your shoe philosophy/what do you love about shoes? John Wildsmith, the founder of the Wildsmith brand, said it best: “You are either in your shoes or in your bed, so it pays to invest in both.” This is so true but is not often said. With our shoes, we create a product that is either completely or mostly natural and sustainable, lasts well, doesn’t go out of fashion, is repairable many times and supports traditional craftsmen and women at the same time. What bothers me is the short-lived lifecycle of so many mass-produced trainer styles. We need to invest in heritage, well-made shoes, whatever the style.
What shoe/boot trend do you envisage for 2021? Our shoes are not fashion conscious in the normal way other brands are. We create classics that are updated to reflect current styles, but they are still overtly traditional. In 2021, we will launch an exciting collaboration with an iconic trainer brand so that we can offer authentic casuals as more of us move away from the formal requirements of an office. I am sure though that the classics will endure. Men like to show off and an expertly crafted shoe always says a lot about the wearer. Maybe the formal styles will start to push back into some of the casual settings?
What has been the biggest change in the shoe industry that you have seen since you have worked for Herring Shoes? The big brands have started to take far more control of their products which is good because it discourages discounting of the product. It costs a lot to hand-make a shoe in England and a lot of factories have closed in the last 20 years because their margins were unsustainable.
To keep the tradition alive there needs to be a reasonable profit and they are, sensibly, protecting themselves. There is a trade-off though, we are not able to sell as freely as we were due to their distribution models. This is why having the Herring brand, made to the same standards and fairly priced, wherever you happen to live in the world, gives us opportunities to grow.
Who would you like to see wearing Herring Shoes and why? There are a few that would probably make people wince as being too obvious or too celebrity-loving. Unfortunately 2020 put the brakes on any new profiles but we have a few ongoing projects which might well include a some well-known faces that make it onto the website. I can say with hand-on-heart that every ambassador I have had the privilege of meeting has been inspiring in different ways. Collectively they say a lot about what makes Herring as a brand tick, so whoever we meet next is who I want to see.
Top shoe care tip: Alternate your shoes. It is so important to share out the wear between more than one pair of shoes. If you could only do one thing, alternating would be it.
If you had to choose one pair of Herring Shoes to wear for the rest of your life, what would they be? Easy, the Herring Exmoor boot. It has great associations for me. I love its Britishness and it can be dressed up or down. Might look a bit odd on the beach with shorts though….
The last day of November signals the end of leaf-crunching autumn and the start of the colder wintery weather. It has been a challenging 2020 so winter may seem even longer and tougher this year, but a decent boot may just help lift the mood a little. Please know that we are not underestimating the stresses and strains of this year, but hey, we must find joy where we can as we come out of the second lockdown…and boots make us smile.
Here is our guide to the best boots for winter 2020/21.
Brogue Our choice is the Stow style from Trickers in acorn calf leather. These really are a thing of beauty. I don’t really need to say anymore, just look at them! They are true classics and would work equally well in the country as they would in the town. They ooze brogue edginess.
Trickers are renowned for their boot-making skills and these are made with thick, quality calf leathers. They are storm-welted for extra water resistance and they are also available with a super-springy Dainite sole, in a variety of colours. If you have smaller feet or the woman in your life fancies these, they come in size 6 and go up to size 13.
Chukka/desert This Ryder III style was worn by Daniel Craig’s James Bond in The Quantum of Solace and has risen to popularity since. No doubt a flurry of interest will follow when the new Bond film, No Time To Die, is eventually released. Another classic, from Church’s this time, they are perfect for smart casual wear, especially if you are still working from home.
Bovver These no-nonsense Churchstow Norwegian rubber-soled boots would fit the bovver category for their extreme ruggedness. Less than a fashion statement though (but they also fit that bill nicely), they have been finely crafted to last.
As a tall boot, it has a punkish flare, but the lightweight commando pattern sole and contrast Norwegian stitching into the upper, along with a Goodyear stitch into the sole, make it ideal for getting out and about at the weekend.
Hiking Like the above, these are sturdy little numbers that are meant for walking. Our Badminton rubber-soled boots are described as the ‘the ultimate gentleman’s boot’, made from leather that is designed to take a bashing. They have been crafted for us by Cheaney, so the quality is really top notch.
Chelsea When you are not reaching for your rugged footwear, the Chelsea is the perfect choice for almost everything else in winter. Smart enough for work but casual enough to wear with jeans or chinos on a Friday night or for Sunday lunch. The Chelsea boot can really do no wrong and they are easy to get on and off too! Our Wilson Chelsea boot is our longest standing style and for good reason. It is made on the 11028 modern-shaped last that has become classic in its own right with its nod to the Swinging Sixties.
Derby This is a welcome new addition to our collection. Made for us by Steptronic, our Liverpool style looks like a brogue boot but has a Derby-style lace configuration with a side zip fastening. The key word is ‘comfort’. They are light, hard-wearing, flexible and have a sheepskin lining. The soles are not welted, but you will still get years of good use out of them as the calf leather is hardy.
Your choice As I am sure you know, we have plenty of other boot styles on our website should you wish to have a browse to put a few favourites on your Christmas wish list! The above are just a few suggestions as boots really are an individual choice that can speak volumes about who you are and the mood you are in!
Behave! I am not talking about a lack of underwear…I am talking about your boots.
Combat boots with a Commando-esque sole are your go-to boot trend for this autumn/winter. These military inspired boots will ensure you are ready for anything…and will make you stand a little taller too. This heavy-duty boot is inspired by the combat footwear worn by the military and they are as tough as they look, but that does not mean they are rough. Prada, Valentino and Givenchy all have their versions and Herring is no different…all with that iconic thicker sole.
Our classic offering, due to its elongated ankle shaft, much favoured in the punk era, are the Churchstow Norwegian style. They have contrast Norwegian stitching around the welt into the upper, along with the Goodyear stitch into the sole. They feature six pairs of eyelets and three pairs of speed-lace eyelets too. While black is what you will see on the catwalks, we have these in brown and tan grain as well.
For a more country or workman-like look, may I suggest the Fleetwood. Same tough sole but a suede upper and they’re surprisingly lightweight. Meanwhile, the Windermere isn’t so much crafted as engineered. It is a thoroughly masculine style, it is a boot designed for taking on the elements. Featuring a leather upper and full leather lining, the Commando rubber sole and Veldtschoen construction make this a highly water-resistant shoe. They all feature the Commando rubber sole to give grip and unbelievable wear, and a bit of extra height. Be warned though, make sure you kick the dirt out of the cleats before you get in the door or you will not be popular when you traipse mud through your home.
If you are not into a heavyweight sole, we can offer you a Dainite rubber alternative. This is also very durable but a bit thinner. The dimples offer a good level of grip, but the round design stops you tracking dirt into the house. See our Badminton boot, which we describe as the ultimate gentleman’s boot, sporting five pairs of eyelets and three pairs of speed-lace eyelets. For a smarter look you can opt for our Kirkdale Chelsea boot or be more relaxed with the Canterbury chukkas.
As we slip into autumn, a boot made for all weather is a must for everyone’s wardrobe, so why not get something that is durable and fashionable to see you through many colder seasons to come?
Hopefully, some of you managed to tune in to our long awaited Instagram Live debut. Although we are a little late to the party when it comes trying out this popular social media tool (fashionably, I might add), we decided to take the plunge and see what all the fuss is about.
Before we get ahead of ourselves, let me explain exactly what I am talking about for those of you that don’t know much about Instagram Live. It is, in its simplest terms a live video broadcast through Instagram. The purpose is to engage with our customers and encourage discussions with a live stream of the host (me) and one or more guests. Once live, anyone who follows us on Instagram is notified and they can decide whether or not to join in. If you joined me on Monday then you would have seen me with our brand ambassador Gui Bo of Men Need More Style live from his home in France, talking about all things Herring and style. I also had a Chancery briefcase to give away (congrats to Aleksander who resides in Norway for winning). Once you are watching you can submit questions, which will be visible for everyone, that we can discuss and answer, as best we can.
I know social media still holds a bit of stigma for some, understandably, and you may ask us ‘what is your aim? why are you doing this?’. Well, quite simply we are trying to engage with as many people as we can and show everyone what lies at the heart of Herring shoes, which is more than just great shoes! We are, of course, proud of our Herring range and the other brands we sell on our website but we are just as passionate about friendly, approachable customer care, which runs through the core of our business from top to bottom. We love giving advice and answering questions. Between us we have a wealth of knowledge, gained from years of experience which we can use to help you make the best choice possible. Whether you want to know the best colour shoes to wear with your navy suit or what size is best for you, we are on hand to answer your questions and, by using Instagram Live, we think we can reach even more people.
In case you missed it I will now sign off and leave you with a recap of some of the questions asked on Monday. Once again, a huge thank you to everyone who contributed with their kind comments and I look forward to speaking to many more of you in the near future. To make sure you see me next time, follow us (click here) and hopefully the next time you see ‘Herring Shoes have gone live‘ pop up on your phone, you are tempted to watch and, maybe, ask a question too.
I hear people talk about shoe trees, but what exactly are they and what do they do? It’s a good question and although many will know what they are, it shouldn’t be assumed that everyone has come across them before. Essentially, they are made of either plastic or wood and they are designed to fit inside your shoes to help them keep the shape and wick away excess moisture, this in turn keeps the leather in good condition and stops the soles wearing through quickly. We don’t sell plastic ones because they don’t absorb moisture unlike wooden trees. Plastic can be acceptable for travel but you can also used rolled-up paper to stuff inside which will work perfectly well as an alternative. It should be noted that you don’t have to have one set of shoe trees for each pair of shoes you own, you can rotate them and use them on the shoes you have worn that day. Yes, in a perfect world you would have a pair of shoe trees for each pair of shoes, so they always get a chance to dry and and reshape between wears. Ideally you should also be rotating between at least two pairs of shoes and not wearing one pair solidly throughout the week. This will make a huge difference to the longevity and overall wear. Please follow these two simple tips: rotate your shoes, and use shoe trees. (Find shoe trees here).
What other tips do you have for keeping my shoes looking at their best? Following on from the last question, it’s good to get in the habit of using shoe cream on your shoes (Saphir is the best, find it here). If you think about it, leather is a natural product and, just like our skin, it does need some moisture from time to time. So using shoe cream on a monthly basis at the very least is highly recommended, finishing it off with a nice polish also helps to protect the leather and adds a nice lustre which many people find appealing. Another tip would be to avoid rain/wet conditions if you can. Unless you are a meteorologist, naturally you will get caught out from time to time, but if this happens simply put your shoe trees inside your shoes and leave them to dry at room temperature. It is important that you don’t get tempted to put them near a heat source as this will dry out the leather too fast and it may crack. Leave them for at least two days, then give them a little cream and you are good to go. If you don’t let them dry properly and you continue to wear them, the sole will wear through extremely fast; wet leather and concrete do not mix well. If you have rubber soles then you don’t need to worry quite as much, although I would still use the shoe trees so the leather uppers keep their shape.
A question for Gui: How many shoes and suits do you own? 40-50 suits and 150-200 pairs of shoes. (I am still trying to get my head around this too).
Do Herring ship worldwide? Yes, we specialise in worldwide delivery using DHL. In most cases items will take one working day from despatch to reach you within Europe, and within 1-2 working days for most of the USA. Asia and Australia is usually around 3-5 working days. We can also help you with the duties as we offer the opportunity to pay for them when you are in the checkout, this way there are no surprises when your parcel gets processed through customs and it saves you extra handling fees. You will see we also sell low-cost returns labels for anyone outside of the UK (we send free returns labels with all UK orders as standard). This is a DHL label that you can use to send your shoes back. It is always cheaper than any other method and could save you a lot of hassle and money if you have to return a shoe for any reason. You can think of it as a really cheap insurance policy if you are unsure of sizing or if the style will suit you.
My shoes are still a bit tight, any tips on how I can stretch them? Generally speaking, you want them to be a little tight when you first get them as, with wear, the leather uppers and cork footbed will mould to your feet. We find if you wear them for an hour whilst sat down and relaxing, your feet will soon warm the leather and you will get a good idea if the fit is right. At this stage, if you have not creased them or scratched the soles you are welcome to return the shoes for an exchange if they are not the right fit for you. If they feel OK but you have worn them outside and they still need stretching after a few months then I would advise using Saphir renovateur to help soften the leather and use some shoe trees with socks on them, this will help to push the leather out and stretch them. Alternatively, you can take them to your local cobbler who will be able to give them a bit of a stretch.
What styles do you suggest for wider feet? We try to make sure we have a good selection of shoes made in wide fitting, which is a G (F is normal, G is wide, H is very wide). Although you can sometimes find that an F is still suitable if the last is particularly giving. You should consider derby/gibson styled shoes as the lacing allows for more flexibility around the instep area, this could make all the difference you need. If in doubt, always contact me or a member of the team and we will talk through some styles with you and help you to work out what is best.
What are your best selling business shoes? Assuming this means black shoes, then our Herring Knightsbridge and Mayfair are the best sellers. The Knightsbridge is more traditionally shaped with a slightly shorter toe when compared with the Mayfair, which is sleeker overall.
What have you got coming up that’s new? Covid has put a bit of a delay on a few things we had lined up, but we are working hard on finally getting some ladies styles online so this will be the next big thing you see on our site. We are, of course, still adding new styles so the collection will always have a freshness about it.
Good day gentlemen! My name is Kazi Atiquzzaman, a menswear enthusiasts living is Melbourne, Australia. Even though I work in IT for a living, men’s style has always been a part of me. I admire 1920-1970s sartorial style including vintage and workwear.
The monk shoes design is inspired from Middle Ages monk-strap sandals with no lacing and instead substituted with one or more buckles and straps. It was first introduced in the 15th century in different parts of Europe and since then this style has evolved to be one of the great classic masterpieces in the genre of shoes. The modern version of Monk Shoes is introduced in today’s world as something you can wear with both formal and informal attire. Most often the monk strap shoe is classified between an oxford and a derby style.
Today, I will be reviewing a pair of timeless Herring Attlee shoes which are handmade in Northampton, England. Herring Attlee is a stylish double monk-strap shoe which can be considered by many fashion experts to be one of the most versatile and elegant dress shoes that a man can add to his wardrobe. The sophisticated yet restrained design gives these shoes a truly unique look compared to any other dress shoe. As Attlee can be considered slightly more casual than oxford, therefore it can really go well with suit separates or sport jackets.
The Attlee model features a solid black finish with striking silver buckles, and a cap toe that draws viewers into the rest of the shoes. They are made of 100% pure calf leather with Goodyear welted sole and are perfectly designed for everyday life. The dual monk strap is very comfortable and blends seamlessly, providing a classical look that can only be achieved with quality shoemakers like Herring. The tasteful stitching around the buckle further improves the design and create a very aesthetically pleasing piece of footwear that is an absolute joy to wear. The silver buckle is also equally functional and stylish and pulls the shoe together pleasantly.
I just received these beautiful shoes a couple of days back and thanks to the Herring team for delivering them so quickly. It is currently winter in Melbourne and slowly shops and marketplaces are re-opening after many weeks of COVID-19 restrictions. So, I decided to take my new Attlee for a spin. I always like to incorporate sprezzatura into my style and the Attlee can only complement the overall look I was trying to achieve.
Herring have a fantastic range of shoe styles to suit all budgets, but if you are searching for double-buckled shoes in particular see this link to view their offerings.
According to GQ magazine: “Espadrilles have been a mainstay in men’s armoury since the King of Aragon kitted out his infantrymen with pairs back in the 13th century.”
Well, there’s a fact for you!
Eight centuries later and they are still being used by men stepping out for summer rather than battle.
Do not be too quick to dismiss the espadrille. They may have come from humble beginnings as peasant footwear worn in Spain or France, but that does not mean you only have to wear them when you dress down or your unsightly toenails need to stay hidden.
Espadrilles are a compact slip-on shoe with updated versions produced by top designers every S/S season, but essentially they are same shoe.
Espadrilles are smart enough to wear with tailored chino trousers and a shirt. Alternatively, choose a linen suit and T-shirt for an updated Miami Vice style or slim jeans and a white T-shirt. All trousers though need generous turn-ups or should be slightly cropped to reveal a bare ankle.
They are equally versatile to be worn with shorts instead of flip-flops. An article on the DMARGE website suggested espadrilles were the gentleman’s alternative to flip-flops. Worn with a linen shirt, smart T-shirt or cotton sweater, they are uber preppy with the ability to elevate you from beach bum to refined Riviera (French or English depending on your love for our neighbouring Torquay) gent.
On all occasions, I would opt for no socks otherwise you immediately lose your summer vibe and, quite possibly, your dignity!
We have applied our classic know-how to produce a suede design in biscuit or navy to suit any outfit. Our espadrille has a flexible rubber sole and heel, so they are more hard-wearing and will last you longer than the traditionally made shoes.
Come on…when the sun’s out, pull on your espadrilles to enjoy a footwear style favoured by the great and good of the fashion world. This is no peasant shoe; this is a pleasant shoe.
If you have landed on this blog, then you may have just Googled this question! One of the answers to the title question is…us!
Sadly though, web queries like this will become more relevant as some high street shops close after being forced to shut their doors for several months during lockdown. This will include independent retailers that have long served their local communities with shoes and boots from a range of manufacturers.
Of course, there will still be the option to go to large chain stores that sell their own brand of shoes, along with clothing, homewares, gifts, etc. However, by being so prolific as one-stop shops for all a family’s needs, an element of craftsmanship will be lost, and these stores very seldom offer a fitting service or even a qualified footwear advisor.
Department stores will often stock a range in the same way as a traditional shoe shop used to, but even before lockdown, there were department stores that were heading for administration. Coupled with people adhering to social distancing rules, the temporary, and potentially permanent closure, of shoe shops has seen people go online to find their footwear. This can be bewildering as there are manufacturers and there are retailers…and manufactures that have their own shoe shops!
Herring Shoes is an online retailer that sells shoes and boots from a range of manufacturers. Most of these are UK based. We have always worked closely with largely Northamptonshire-based factories and their craftsmen and this seems even more appropriate as the UK’s shrinking economy tries to wrestle back the 20% it shrank by in April.
All our shoes are ‘decent’. In fact, we are proud of their quality. They do range in price and we often have sales to make them affordable. In addition, our welted shoes can be re-soled time and time again to ensure your investment lasts for many years and will often be less than the amount you would have spent on replacing countless cheaper shoes. Your soles can be replaced multiple times but the leather upper that has moulded to your feet will remain just as comfortable.
We have recently reached our 7,500 Google review milestone to give online shoppers confidence in our ability to meet their needs. We have an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 with more than 93% of customers giving us the highest possible rating.
And while you cannot all come and see us in our store – although we do have one in Kingsbridge – our customer services team is very experienced in the nuances of all the footwear we sell and whether they suit a wide or standard foot, whether to go a size up or down, etc. Give them a call – they are remote but friendly versions of qualified footwear advisers.
Head to our website to browse our stock by manufacturer, by shop type, by size, by colour or by fit. Decent footwear is still being made and sold by Herring.
The plain white tee is a perennial classic. You cannot really go wrong due to its versatility and iconic status in cladding some of the most famous men in the world. Think James Dean, Marlon Brando, Steve McQueen, Paul Newman and Elvis Presley for classic style through to Tom Cruise in Top Gun and onto modern day white tee-boys, Tom Hardy, Harry Styles and Idris Elba.
The easy way to wear a white T-shirt is with a pair of jeans
(I think combats work equally well). It worked for all the men above! But what
do you wear on your feet?
Harking back to boys on motorbikes, then boots are still
relevant here. High-top sneakers would fit the bill teamed with a leather
jacket. Hold on…let’s flashback to the T-Birds in Grease! Check out our
II in leather and suede or our Spare
rubber soled boots in jeans suede. For a more military look, check out our Fleetwood
rubber-soled boots. These are masculine, muscle flexing styles to give you
a spring in your step and ooze some attitude. Hey, if you end up feeling like
Steve McQueen, you just roll with it!
But we are not all owners of a motorbike and piercing blue eyes. I think you can capture a more relaxed style with jeans and sneakers. A white, leather sneaker with a white tee…how can you go wrong? Our Split style is a minimalist quality product with a nod to vintage styling with the cream lace and sole. Made out of premium leather, it also comes in black for a true monochrome look. However, is black or white is too stark, go for brown. Our Urban is easy going on the eye and is also extremely comfortable.
If you want to smarten up your act, try teaming your tee and
jeans with a blazer and a pair of loafers. If you a fan of a tassel, then I
would suggest our Albert
styles in brown suede or the Fleming
Ditch the socks and chuck on a baseball cap to complete the preppy look or à la
Beckham or Jake Gyllenhaal style.
if you use a white t-shirt as a layer for your casual attire
with a denim or checked shirt and chinos, then I think desert boots or chukkas
are your go-t- here. Check out the Monty
or the Canterbury.
Lastly, there is the suit option. A white T-shirt can relax
a more formal look so you need to choose footwear that will be suitable for a
suit but not look like you are ready for a job interview. So for a cocktails on
the terrace or dinner with friends (when allowed again), light-weight Chelsea
boots are as reliable as the tee and the Thatcher
would be a standout choice in burgundy with a navy suit or the.
You may also wish to consider the Pelham,
which has a zip fastening and is suede or the two-tone Laverton
II, which is laced. Whichever boot you choose, I would suggest a sleek toe
shape. You want to look elegantly edgy.
If you have any other white tee style and footwear looks you
would like to share, I am always happy to hear from you.
The first thing I noticed when I got the Crispin shirt in my hands was the feel of the fabric, it was soft and a very nice weight. I’m particular about the fabric weight. Too thin and the shirt feels cheap and can be see-through; however, too thick, and the shirt will wear warm and also feel bulky when tucked in or under a blazer. This shirt however hits the weight perfectly; it feels solid and drapes really nicely over the shoulders and through the waist.
I looked at the stitching over the entire shirt. From the cuffs to the yoke, the stitching was straight, uniform, and never too close to the edge of the fabric. The collar stitching in particular was perfectly on point, pun intended, and, on this blue shirt, provided just a small amount of texture to the well-shaped and spread collar. The stitching and thread on the buttons is also nicely executed. It’s thick and sturdy ensuring the buttons won’t easily stretch out or start to fray.
Looking at the back of the shirt, the darts are also nicely sewn. They look to be blind stitched giving the back of a shirt a very seamless and clean look, an extra detail welcome on a quality dress shirt.
The fit of the shirt is very nice, it’s slim fitting without being overly tight and restricting. I’m 5’11” and 190lbs and the 16″ collar shirt fits perfectly with one exception.
There is a bit too much fabric on the sleeves making them looking frumpy; that’s a technical term right? I’m a 34.5″ sleeve length, when I stretch my arm down it seems like longer sleeve length gents won’t have this issue, but if you are a 16″ collar with 34/35 sleeve you’ll notice this additional fabric making the sleeves bulky. Other than the sleeves issue, the waist, shoulders, collar, and chest all fit absolutely spot on. For myself, I wouldn’t wear the shirt untucked as I feel the overall length of the shirt its best suited for tucking in, but if you’re 6’0″ or taller it would probably look properly proportioned.
The colour of the shirt is a nice soft blue. It will easily go with any blazer or tie of your choice. In my pictures you’ll see I’ve paired it with a nice dark forest green tie sporting the flying union flag…perfect for this Yankee!
In summary the shirt is a wonderful weight, has a lovely fit, especially for slightly longer armed gents, and the details, like stitching and buttons, all culminate to a quality shirt you’ll be happy to wear for years to come.
Available as single or double cuff here and the tie is available online also by following this link. The shoes worn are the Herring Edward II semi brogues.
