What to wear now: Billy Ruffian

The sun is shining, so whether you’re taking a stroll around your neighbourhood or your own garden to get a hit of fresh air and some Vit D, there’s no excuse not to let your feet feel great.

We love the beautifully crafted, hand sewn men’s summer shoes from British shoe brand Billy Ruffian – made to fit and built to last they offer style & substance.


The Boat Shoe (RRP: £120)

A long time preppy staple, the boat shoe is cool again – it’s having a comeback moment. They epitomize summer and have us all dreaming of long holidays on a superyacht (never going to happen, but we can dream…). Finish the look with some no-show socks and a cropped fit trouser and get out the champers.

Billy Ruffian Boat Shoes are rubber-soled, expertly oiled and handmade, available in two different styles: Leander (laces and eyelets) or Lulworth (slip on).


The Loafer (RRP: £150 – £160)

A more formal summer shoe – the loafer is the versatility at its finest. It’s the perfect slip on shoe to have as a staple in your wardrobe, working with a range of dress codes – taking your looks from chill to smart in no time. If you have a summer of weddings and don’t fancy donning an Oxford shoe for every occasion, Loafers will look cool with a suit while giving you a modern, sharp edge.

Billy Ruffian Loafers are hand-stitched and hand-crafted, easing their way into any occasion. With a variety of colours available at Billy Ruffian in suede or leather, you can be as daring or traditional as you like.


The Chukka Boot (RRP: £165)

A boot that can serve you year-round. The Chukka boot is a lightweight boot that pulls an outfit together when trainers just don’t cut it. They smarten up an outfit in an instance without being too stuffy and formal and are the perfect for the transitional season. Just remember the golden rule – no visible socks!

Billy Ruffian Chukka Boots come in two materials: leather and suede. Choose between Black, English tan and Brown leather or Snuff and Oakum Brown suede.
