Church's has been around for years, so long in fact that they were one of the first companies to distinguish between left and right feet and design shoes accordingly. Worn by politicians, celebrities, diplomats and probably James Bond, Church's classic styles are a true investment. The Regent Street store is well worth a visit to chat with the knowledgeable staff and soak up that irresistible smell of expensive leather.
High-end international designers sit alongside emerging labels at Sefton, one of Upper Street’s stylish boutiques. This menswear store opened in 1999 and has brimmed with reliably stylish names ever since, including APC, Comme Des Garcons and Acne. The interior is just as classy as the clothes, with stark white walls, a deep blue floor and very neat displays. Sefton is also an excellent bet for affordable accessories and their own brand offers chic basics that fans of Cos will delight in.
