What's Up Doc?


The weather has officially turned for the worst with flooding, gales and general miserableness abound. With this in mind, I have been on the look out for some new boots to get me through the season.

This is the year of the Chelsea boot; their practical mix of formal and casual makes them a great addition to any man's wardrobe. They'll look great paired with cuffed jeans or slim chino or wool trousers, depending on the occasion.

I have written before about my love of Dr Martens and was kindly invited to the opening of the flagship Belfast store last year. I knew they would have the solution to my Chelsea boot conundrum as I wanted something more rugged than the slim. Beatle-boot style. Step forth the Victor boot.

I knew I didn't want something in black. While black is the classic Dr Marten colour, I always find it too harsh. I wanted something in either tan or conker brown, a bit more tonal for autumn and winter. Plus it will work with the majority of the trousers and pants I currently have.

I couldn't resist taking a few more snaps of the amazing styles currently available too - if only I was a little braver and a lot richer!

It's hard to beat the classic 1460 8-hole in these traditional colours.

The penny loafer would look great sockless, paired with chinos. 
(It's just a little too wet and cold in Belfast for this look at the minute)

I couldn't leave out these brogues obviously...

The perfect winter accessory selection.

Docs aren't always leather. These Mayport sneakers and boots have the same airwear soles but are given a relaxed look with canvas uppers.

Monochrome is always stylish

I have my eye on this leather back pack, it might be my birthday treat to myself...
