Gotta Have It

"If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour" - the motto of Norfolk based luxury lifestyle brand Fairfax & Favor and my new go to winter boot boys. Ps.keep reading we have a rather lovely handbag up for grabs worth £395


Maybe it’s my country roots or possibly my dodgy toes but I’m much more comfortable in a Muddy Boot than a Muddy Stiletto. Autumn is my favourite season – rejoice in the glory of the boot, all shapes and sizes, I won’t discriminate. So imagine my delight at being invited along to Norfolk based luxury lifestyle brand, Fairfax & Favor to check out their new showroom at Narford Hall.

At 18, Felix and Marcus, the brains behind the brand, wanted to bridge the gap between casual and formal, countryside and city, style and adventure. Six years on, a few bumps along the way (don’t mention Gucci), many Country Fairs later and they are flying high with a beautiful range of boots and shoes, handbags and now lifestyle clothing. Check out their Insta and you’ll even spot a few celebs sporting a Burnham or Rockingham boot (big Muddy tick for keeping it local)!

Fairfax & Favor is all about the high end shopping experience, one which left me feeling rather like Pretty Woman. Based in the 16th Century stable block at Narford Hall – the grand tour took in room after room of boxes filled with loafers, sandals, boots and handbags – pinch me, I’ve died and gone to heaven.

The Regina Suede Boot £325

I couldn’t resist a pair of their launch pad boots – The Regina. This reimagining of the classic Spanish riding boot was the boy’s game changer and now their most popular product. It comes in flat or heel, three different colours and calf sizes. Plus check out the detachable tassels too – the ultimate in coordinating accessories (£15 – £30). The limited edition pink tassel has raised £43,000 for Breast Cancer Care to date.

Next Chapter, handbags – and oh boy, do we have a lovely Readers Treat. Who fancies this gorgous bag of loveliness???

The Loxley Shoulder Bag (black, navy, royal blue, tan, tan & navy) £395

Gillets, puffer jackets and dog collars are all in the creative pipeline and I’m sure they’ll be produced with the same excellent craftmanship, exquisite detail and eye for comfort.


It would be amiss of me to not mention that Felix’s folks own the Bedingfeld Arms – a gorgeously cosy pub next door to Oxburgh Hall in West Norfolk. Roaring fire, great food and the type of place you imagine would be perfect for a lock in. There are nine lovely rooms just in case you get carried away!


Lucky for us Fairfax & Favor are opening their first high street store in Holt – Gotta visit, Gotta Have It!
