Scrub up this season in top drawer footwear, made to shine at formal events. Understated, yet undeniably dapper, Gentlemen, allow us to introduce you to the Abbey Collection…

The Abbey Collection is a much-loved staple in the Base London range. Featuring timeless, traditional formal silhouettes and styles, presented in of-the-moment, contemporary finishes, this is a collection designed to scrub up effortlessly. Under the radar but impeccably styled, the Abbey Collection features modern leather treatments which bring its classic styles bang up to date.

Sleek, simple and roguishly versatile, Bayham is a formal shoe for all occasions. With a plain toe, clad in a range of modern leather finishes, including our signature burnished style, this is a shoe which oozes charm rather than screaming about its style credentials. Set on a slim rubber sole, Bayham has a low profile but plenty of sophistication. Inside you’d find a luxurious red lining with gold print branding and contrast red flash leather, for a cheeky dose of subtle character. Where it anywhere, everywhere and look the part perfectly.

HailesHailes LRSometimes it’s all about the details. This suave monk strap formal brogue shoe is rich in dapper touches which enhance the quality of Hailes’ burnished or waxy leather uppers. This is a brogue with a twist. While traditional hole-punched leather accentuates the toe, a rich stitched seam adds a wingtip look, all topped off with a chunky statement strap and buckle. Set on a mid-sized, hard-wearing sole, these good-looking brogues have been built to go the difference whether you’re impressing prospective clients or scrubbing up for the office Christmas party.

Meet Waltham – the classic formal brogue you’ve been waiting for. This is a shoe which sticks to its roots but brings them bang up to date with modern leather finishes in waxy and hi-shine styles. With traditional hole-punched brogue detailing across the toe, body and heel, this is a brogue which both looks the part and walks the walk. Set on a slim, sturdy sole, Waltham has been made to ensure you take every formal occasion and event in your stride – and look dangerously dapper while doing so.
