Mens Fashion: 10 Yorkshire High Street Hits to Buy Now
1. Sedbergh Lace Up Boot
York’s Watkinsons have been purveyors of luxury shoes for over a century, a standard they haven’t let slip an inch. When it comes to boots, Loake are a cut above – cobbling up stylish yet durable footwear that elevates an outfit effortlessly. Good lasting boots in a soft finish are a versatile addition to any wardrobe, like these Sedbergh lace ups that opt for much cooler ringlets rather than your standard eyelets.

2. Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch 42mm Hesalite Glass Men’s Bracelet Watch
A hesalite version of the iconic Speedmaster Moonwatch, this ticker is a 42mm stainless steel fourth generation of the original design. The black chronograph dial is equipped with a 30-minute, 12-hour and small seconds sub-dial as well as being water resistant up to 50 metres. It’s also technically flight certified by NASA, although we’ll just have to take their word on that one.
