Loake Shoes

Happy New Year!

Since it’s the new year we thought we would introduce a top class mens shoemaker for you to strive for over the next 12 months.

Loake have been making shoes for over 130 years so they know a bit about style and quality! Recently awarded a Royal Warrant of Appointment to the Queen, these shoes are made by craftsmen in their factory in Kettering.

These shoes are made to last and as such can be sent back to the factory to be resoled or repaired after you’ve trekked a few thousand miles in them.

Our favourites have to be these Loake Chester in dark brown

A pair of these Loake shoes are going to be winging their way to More Than Shoes once the Christmas credit card bills have been paid off


New Sherlock BBC Series: Jacket

There’s been a lot of buzz around the internet concerning the new Sherlock Holmes series on BBC 1 starting Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Not only are people loving how well Sherlock has been updated for the 21 century but they are loving the clothes that he wears!

After lots of people trying to find out what coat he wears, GQ Magazine did some investigating and found out that it’s a Belstaff. Sadly for those people rushing out to buy one, it was from the winter 07/08 collection and is no longer available. We’ve had a good bit of snooping around eBay and can’t find any for sale at the moment but we’ll keep looking. GQ have reported that Belstaff are re-releasing the jacket called “The Millford” but when we checked the site they were selling a jacket with this name and it’s not one from the program.

Seeing as nobody can find the jacket, that is reported to cost £1,350, then it could be presumed that it’s all been a bit of a publicity stunt for Belstaff. The first company to come out with a good copy will make huge sales this Autumn!

If you want to get the shoes that Sherlock wears then we recon that these are as close as you need to get:
