Shoes make the man and investing in craftsmanship is something that men are really buying into at the moment. Cheaney shoes have been making footwear for 125 years and still work from the very same factory that they started out in, back in 1886. Every stage of production takes place there, allowing the brand to keep control of every detail of every shoe.
To commemorate this special anniversary, Cheaney shoes have created the 125 collection which includes styles available in several width fittings. It takes a full 8 weeks to make a pair of Cheaney shoes - craftsmanship is king! They'll also be opening a new flagship store in London this year, and it's good to know that businesses like this are surviving the tough economical climate. Timeless style always has its place in fashion.
The owners, Jonathan and William Church, say: “125 years is a phenomenal achievement for any business and the continued success of Cheaney can be attributed to the passion and pride that our highly skilled employees have for the shoes that they make”.
Prices for the new 125 collection start at £205. In the meantime, here are a couple of my favourite styles from the current collection...

Celeb men seem to be quite a bit more designer-loyal when it comes to red carpet dressing, and it's easy to understand why. With women, there are so many different options of colour, fabric, fit, style. With the guys, there's less scrutiny on whether you've 'played it safe'or not, it's all about looking smart and sexy. It doesn't even matter if you're dresses the same as the guy next to you. The next four celebs all chose Giorgio Armani for their Golden Globes tailoring... who do you think works the look best?

The new year is always a good time to think about a fresh start and your wardrobe is no exception. I'll be giving mine a good clear out as soon as I get the chance. So have you got a collection of old shoes that have seen better days? I bet most of us could do with a shoe clear-out. At this time of year you might be thinking about starting a new year health regime, so make sure you've got a good pair of sport shoes to support your feet while you're getting fit. Sports brands seem to be loving orange and black this season.
