Five shoes every man should own

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Following on from our post yesterday, a bit of Googling here at OFFICE HQ revealed that the average man has 12 pairs of shoes in his wardrobe. A few shy of the average woman’s 20, but still a decent number we thought.

Today we’re taking a look at the five must-have pairs for men which should be among that 12.


We don’t mean the scruffy trainers you go to the gym in, we’re talking about the ones you wear to do everything but exercise. Whether you opt for all-purpose Converse All Stars, vintage-inspired Puma Classics or bold and bright Nike Air Max, your trainers should be both comfortable and cool.

Desert Boots

For those occasions when trainers are bound to earn you a dirty look but you don’t fancy formal footwear, the desert boot never looks out of place.



You may not be needing them for a few months but espadrilles are a staple of any stylish man’s summer wardrobe. At £15 for two pairs they’re cheap and cheerful.


Sometimes only a formal shoe will do. Brogues will take you from the office into the evening.

Smart boots

For that suited and booted look you can‘t go wrong with either Chelsea or Chukka boots. See some of our top picks for the season in our Top 10 Men’s Boots post.

What women want (men not to wear)

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

If you are trying to dress to impress the opposite sex then a recent survey may have some interesting insights for you. The poll, by TLC TV, highlighted the fashion fads that women don’t find attractive on men. Top of the list were low hanging jeans, baseball caps balanced on the back of the head and ankle skimming trousers. It seems women also find it a turn-off when men wear pink jeans, short shorts, low v-neck t-shirts, onesies and ‘girly’ scarves. So boys if there are any three-quarter length trousers or white vests lurking in your wardrobe, it also might be worth throwing them out. In terms of footwear, heeled shoes are a no-no as is rocking socks and sandals.

If you want to make a good impression, a beautifully cut suit is the way to a woman’s heart, according to stylist Brix Smith-Start, who suggested men look to Jude Law and front row favourite Harry Styles for fashion inspiration. The women questioned also highlighted George Clooney and David Beckham as men they’d like their boyfriends to dress like.

And if you are thinking about ignoring this advice, you may want to think again. The survey found that women are far more likely to judge the opposite sex by the clothes they wear. Women are also less likely to accept a date if the suitor is badly dressed – only 47% would accept a date with someone who has bad fashion sense.

We think you can’t go wrong with a well-fitting pair of jeans, teamed with some stylish trainers or on-trend hiking boots and topped off with a baseball jacket as seen at Missoni and Oliver Spencer this Autumn/Winter. For more formal occasions, a slimline charcoal suit as seen at Bottega Veneta is the perfect choice.
