With the change in stance from the UK government, businesses are beginning to set dates for a return to the office. As retailers let out an audible sigh of relief, we must remember that at a time where legislation is being replaced by guidance, courteousness to those beside you must remain.
Returning to something a touch more to what we are used to, means a return to our long-awaited face-to-face meetings! Boardroom or not, there is nothing that can replace deep discussion with enthusiastic optimism for what might be. Inspiring confidence, freshly polished or even new shoes are a great place to start!
Three obvious choices come to mind, all of which come in Black and Dark Brown Calf variants with either leather or rubber soles. There are plenty of worthy contenders in The Icons Collection… none more iconic than: The Loafer, Sydney. The Oxford, Connaught 2. The Boot, Tetbury.
Our classic penny loafer Sydney is a style that’s comfortable in the boardroom all year round. It’s elegant medium round toe, thanks to last 341’s characteristics, makes it a well-established style for formal business attire. With multiple colourways from Black Calf to Dark Brown Suede and leather or city soles to choose from, Sydney is our most versatile ‘Back to the Boardroom’ choice.
An update on a style that has been in our collection for almost 60 years, nothing shouts formal business attire more than an iconic cap toe Oxford; with Connaught 2 fitting the bill perfectly. Available in Black and Dark Brown Burnished Calf, Connaught 2 benefits from a tighter back part whilst still taking the recognisable rounded toe shape of the original Connaught.
Tetbury, our plain fronted Chukka boot is as at home on the feet of James Bond as it is around the boardroom table. Made from the finest Black Wax Calf, along with Dark Brown Wax Calf and Dark Brown Suede variations, Tetbury is set on Dainite Rubber soles for added practicality for the commute into the office.
