We've been fans of Albam since they started out as a mail-order-only outfit, selling simply-styled men's clothing from their Nottingham HQ. And since they opened their first shop on Beak street in London last year,
a matter of yards from the Esquire office, we've been popping by far more than is financially viable. It could be the neat detailing, the good-quality fabrics or the flexibility to bring in new stock every couple of weeks - whatever, it works for us. Of particular interest this spring is the collaboration with Northampton shoe legends Grenson, producing this tan chukka boot for £225. You can see how it was put together here.
