Suit up and shoe up

So here at McConnell’s HQ we have delved into the big wide world of ladies shoes for quite some time now, so it is only fair that we give those men out there a turn!

As the season of occasions is well upon us, I thought I would give you guys out there some inspo. Or if the truth be told, give your other half the inspo, as chances are you either won’t come shopping without them, or you will actually send them in for you! True, I bet!



Number One on my list this season, is no other than Twickenham, from the Lloyd & Pryce range. This is from the Tommy Bowe collection, and by now I shouldn’t have to explain who this guy is. All you need to know is that he plays amazing rugby and designs great shoes! Twickenham is such an elegant brogue style shoe that incorporates the slightly elongated toe shape that is bang on trend at the minute. The rich whiskey colour is the perfect tone to team with your navy suit, which to be honest, is the only colour you guys seem to but these days! The cushioned footbed really adds to the comfort of this shoe, whilst the premium leather will mould to the shape of your foot! I just love it!



If you are a fan on the more slender dressy shoe, then Paolo Vandini have you covered, Nateby is from their collection and is available in wine or burgundy and it is so slick team with a suit or dressy trousers. The brogue design and burnished effect leather just give this shoe a high finish look. The tan is great with your navy, while the burgundy works so well with black, navy or even your chinos!



For those fellows out there who like something a little bit different, then set your eyes on Naughton by Paolo Vandini. This brogue is a classic style meets country, with a tweed insert and punched detailing. Team these with your suit or your dark denim for a very stylish and bang on trend look. I just think they add so much more to an outfit, without being too showy or too heavy. You know you love them too!



An all-time favourite and best seller at McConnell shoes has to be Dover by Justin Reece. This has to be the most versatile shoe there is. Wear it with your suits, your denim, and your chinos. The best part about this style is that it is available in five different colours, all coming with matching laces, or for the adventurous, red laces to match in with the red trimmed sole. This is a classic style with a modern twist for today’s modern man! The high shine finished leather dresses any outfit and draws attention to your fashionable footwear. Hardest part is picking which colour, but we urge you to be brave!



This season sees us introduce a new brand into our repertoire, from Bugatti. This high class collection is full of understated and elegant pieces, yet they are so wearable. These are the perfect shoe is you are not sold on the brogue styling with the punched detail. The finer toe shape makes them perfect with a slim trouser or jeans and the premium leather upper is so smooth. This is a brand where everything fits, the colours, the design, the material and the workmanship. You can just tell these were crafted with comfort and style in mind. These are definitely a ‘call in store or look online need to see collection!’

So, here finishes part one on our guys segment! Keep an eye out for the next one to come! And don’t forget to pop in and speak to our lovely staff members or have a wee nosey online, especially as our sale is now on!
