The Lynwood- Our New Hand-Sewn Derby

Dear All, We have long been thinking about hopping on board with a Ready to Wear Derby and the time has now come. We have introduced the Lynwood into this Spring/Summer collection in 6 colours to ensure there is a model for all occasions and outfits. Whilst we know the most famous model is a split-toe Derby, we wanted to keep the front clean and thus not have this feature. The new model also comes on our new last, the SEA last. Features of this last are that it has a more Symmetrical shape from the forefoot to the toe […]

Brown Oxfords- A must have

Dear All, After living in London for only 6 years I have definitely seen a rise in the amount of Men wearing Brown shoes with business attire which makes me happy. Whilst I do agree there is a need to wear Black shoes with some outfits I also think wearing Brown shoes with suits looks far better and should not be frowned upon. There are more shades of Brown leather than one can fathom but a classic ‘Mid-Brown’ shoe is a must have in your shoe collection. Whether it be a classic Cap-Toe Oxford like our Magnolia in Cedar Calf […]

Dear All,   Wishing you a pleasant Friday. As the weekend approaches and the weather starting to turn (for the better) it is time to start thinking about the Spring/Summer shoe choices. We believe that we have now got a loafer that will suit anyone’s needs, whether it be formal business attire right down to the most casual outfit. We are excited about the release of the Hawthorne Butterfly Loafer and the 6 colour options. For such an iconic model there is actually not that many brands that offer this shoe in their ready to wear collection. We have taken […]

The Ballard- The Perfect All Year Chukka

Hi All, Finally Spring is coming albeit with the occasional shower still and we are really excited about our new collection. One of our trademarks is to make classic shoes with a twist, and whilst we continue to do this we do also need to keep some of the classics and for good reason. The Re-introduction of our Ballard Chukka Boot was a success, so we are continuing with it but in the more common Snuff Suede. The beauty of this shoe is that it literally works with pretty much any choice of trousers from chinos to jeans. Snuff Suede […]

We are kicking off 2017 with a bang and commencing something we have wanted to incorporate for awhile now and that it the offering of Group Made to Order otherwise known as GMTO. As a young brand, we wanted to make sure our MTO offering was in tact and well received before venturing into the GMTO arena. And since launching MTO we have had a great results and feel that it is now time to test the waters by offering this new service. For those of you that might be familiar with GMTO, I have written about a few F.A.Q’s […]

J.FitzPatrick & The Shoe Snob Winter Sales Now Live!

Today we have launched our Winter Sales for both J.FitzPatrick Footwear and The Shoe Snob accessory site. On The Shoe Snob accessory site, we have discounted everything (with the exception of bundled deals) at 20% off. Now is your time to stock up on creams, wax polishes, brushes and most importantly shoe trees. Just remember that our shoes trees are very form fitting. They are about as close to a generic lasted shoe tree that you can get and getting them for £36 (ex VAT £30) is a steal and I will say without fear of offending other vendors that […]

Time to plan the NYE Party

Dear All, Hope you had a very Merry Christmas. It’s now that time in between Christmas and New Years where it is possible to either continue the festivities or relax for a few days before seeing the New Year come to it’s end- most likely with a party! There are lots of different options for a New Years party and no matter which you are attending, there is a shoe for every occasion! Black Tie- I would recommend wearing a highly shined black oxford. For a unique yet classy look the Aurora (above) would make a great choice for this […]
