The Tony II- A Wholecut with a twist

Dear All,

A wholecut oxford is sometimes just too classic and predictable but not this one! Our Tony II in Dark Brown Museum Calf and Black presents a nice and sleek alternative to the classic wholecut that, will leave many admiring your feet. The Tony II comes on the LPB last and I feel it gives a lovely silhouette to this model. The fun is in in the ‘bouncy ball’ design which is not something commonly seen. We wanted to design something that has a fun twist yet remaining classic and elegant. Whilst this isn’t going to break records for innovation, the slight twist on a classic certainly gives this shoe a ‘J Fitzpatrick look’. As a business/wedding shoe the black is a must have but in the brown– not only will this work with a majority of your suits but also with mid-dark denim. The Tony II is the whole cut oxford that provides the best of both worlds. From a personal point of view my Father also wore this model to my Wedding so I have a special connection to the Tony.

If you are going to an evening event, we have seen clients wear this with our Ribbon Laces (pic below) and a shine on the toe which looks great too!

Have a great rest of your week
