Fashion: Best foot forward
A well-shod gentleman knows the power of a subliminal sartorial message, and those who seek to win friends and influence people through the medium of leather or suede would do well to visit Covent Garden's newest arrival. Cobbler Oliver Sweeney has thrown open its doors to a world of hand-finished men's shoes and leather goods as well as the debut of its womenswear collection, Mrs Sweeney. For those with an individualistic streak, the firm's tattooist-in-chief will be on hand to ink new purchases with your choice of design. oliversweeney.com
