Yesterday we had the pleasure of attending Henley Royal Regatta in Oxfordshire on the hottest day of the year. What could be better than watching the rowing races and sipping cold drinks in the glorious sunshine.
All the guest were in their smartest summer attire, the ladies opting for dresses, heels and hats and the gentleman wearing summer suits, boater hats and Timberland boat shoes.
Accompanying us to this grand event were some key members from menswear press all wearing their fave OFFICE shoes for summer, which included the Pansy Sandal, Garland Block Heel and Soho Heel.
After enjoying the delicious canapés, a 4 course dinner and of course some traditional afternoon tea we sat with our feet in the river cheering on the rowers.
The outfits and the beautiful English countryside felt like we had stepped back in time and it was great to see the men’s fashion remaining very traditional at the Regatta. Striped blazers, boater hats, boat shoes and chinos was the outfit of choice for the guys and it was nice to see men dominating the fashion for a change. The woman obviously looked great, but the boys definitely stood out at the Regatta.
The full Regatta look might be a bit extreme for some guys but it is great inspiration for when dressing for other summer events. Boat shoes like our Timberland Exclusive or the classic Heritage 2 Eye are great to pair with chinos and a shirt for garden parties, wedding receptions and posh picnics in the park.
We couldn’t of asked for a more beautiful day surrounded by lovely scenery, it truly was a proper English day out in the countryside.
