Church’s seem to be associated most with the tweeds and Barbour coats of the country set but they have shops all over London and remain a name that guarantees quality. Founded in 1873, you can find shops in Piccadilly and Knightsbridge, where the brogues and Oxfords sell to both Londoners and tourists looking for that traditional English gentleman’s look.

John Lobb may have sold off part off itself to Hermes but its heritage remains in the UK. Possibly the preeminent men’s footwear specialists in London, a pair of John Lobbs are as much a status symbol as they are a pair of shoes. The prices make them exclusive but the quality means a comfortable shoe that will last for years and years.
