Fashion Audit: Going postal, shoe people, and straps for saps
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
We love: Shoe people
Christian Louboutin's famous red soles aren't just for women, and a new dedicated men's boutique in Mayfair, filled with brogues, loafers and high-top trainers, is testament to that.

We're not sure about: Straps for saps
Everyone knows an ankle strap on a shoe can be less than flattering, but buying a detachable elasticated strap just adds insult to injury. If court shoes leave you risking a "Cinderella moment", don't wear them in the first place.
We're buying: Wool over
Christmas jumpers come and go, but the results of a new collaboration between Matches and YMC will last a fair sight longer. Crew necks, rollnecks and cardigans in nine colour ways make up the new men's collection – all made in Scotland from a wool-and-cashmere blend.
From £225, matchesfashion.com
We can't wait for: Going postal
It may be de rigueur to send a last-minute animated e-card at Christmas, but there's still plenty of time to send the real deal. Will Broome's illustrations for teenage cancer charity Trekstock are sure to bring a festive smile to friends and family.
