Rubber Sole Protection

It is a sad day when you have to part with your favourite shoes because the leather soles have worn to holes.

Fear not - now you can extend their life.

Bring your precious footwear to your nearest and dearest Working Style store and we'll rubber sole them to provide mile after mile of extra wear.

This service is available on any of the shoes we sell, and we can discuss it with you on any of the new shoe range.

Luggage comes with Hidden Treasure

Luggage comes with Hidden Treasure

It's no secret that our VBC Luggage range is fashioned from the finest cowhide.

However the metal that keeps it closed is less well known.

Our zips are made from palladium, a metal commonly used to manufacture white gold.

It's in the same class as platinum - just as strong, but not as heavy.

You can trust palladium zips to withstand the most brutish baggage handlers.

Servicing your Suede Footwear

Servicing your Suede Footwear

Suede shoes or boots can instantly deformalise your outfit and give you that extra degree of cool, because they're softer and less structured.

However they do require a little more care than leather footwear.

For regular grooming and spot stains, we recommend a suede brush. And every so often treatment with a specialised suede shampoo can work wonders to keep your investment in good shape.

When all else fails, bring your shoes/boots in and we can take a look.

Making a Spectacle of Pockets

Making a Spectacle of Pockets

We would normally recommend you put your spectacles in the welt pocket or breast pocket of your jacket, but on our regular fit shirts there's an option to have a spectacle pocket fitted.

Definitely better than storing your specs in your trouser pocket - that's just asking for crunch time when you sit.

Belting Good Belts

Belting Good Belts

Our new line of belts has arrived from Italy.

Remember they are an accessory, rather than something that holds your trousers up.

Colour-matching with shoes is advised, but not compulsory.
