The man-tailored trend

In the style stakes, it's hard to think how you can improve on a mannish flat. From slick lace-up styles to dandy golf shoes, they inject more than a little chic into any warm weather wardrobe (and that's not even mentioning how comfortable they are….).The summer's best styles are in delicious statement-making pales – buttery creams, nudes, café au lait. Uppers are jazzed up with archive details – sweet T-bars, spivvy fringing and breezy perforations – while classic Polyveldt and moccasin soles take things from simply tomboy to pretty darn wonderful.

A classic Derby gets an easy-going update for summer. The punched holes are straight from our archives. Teamed with a chic little cut-out, the result is airy and cool.

A classic flat gets a sporty overhaul for spring. There’s a sporty outsole and even a dash of moccasin in there. Metallic makes them futuristic and fun, while the soft, unlined leather feels sublime underfoot.

A mannish classic on an outsize sole, plus – for good measure –butter-soft, unlined leather. Add some sporty perforations to keep bare feet cool – and you’re looking at summer in a shoe.

Here's a retro T-bar given a totally new spin. Updated it for summer we've slimmed the silhouette and recast it in cream patent. The lacy laser etching on the toe keeps things girly and unique.

A riff on our best-selling Griffin Monty, we’ve kept the sturdy archive-inspired sole but dressed up the upper with an outsize fringe (the clever bit? It's removable!). Suede in a soft pastel replaces leather and gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, 'blue suede shoes'.

We've taken a bestseller and thrown the focus on a luxurious mix of leathers. Soft nude and pink makes a sleek package. Add a natural leather sole and the effect is very subtle and very now.
