Make an Exchange
For those in the Square Mile,
The Royal Exchange has long been a safe haven of luxury retail thanks to its abundance of reputable brands (seriously, they’ve got everything a discerning City man could ever need, including a Fortnum & Mason outpost). The latest edition raises the bar further. Christian Louboutin is known best for his red-soled stilettos for women, but makes fine shoes for men, too. They’re characteristically sleek and occasionally extravagant, but dependably well-made.
