Recent MTOs Examples

Dear All, Hope you are having a good week. We are really enjoying seeing some of the creations our clients are making in their MTO purchases. Since launching the MTO programme we have seen some really cool models come through which is what we like to see as it always keeps us on our toes to ensure we are designing new things here for our ready to wear stock. If you are thinking about MTO, I would suggest looking at our MTO page on the website at some of the examples from others clients to get the design juices flowing […]

The TMG Last- Classic Round

  Dear All, We have 7 last shapes at J.F Footwear and wanted to start doing some blog posts about each of them. (LPB, TMG, MGF, SEA, NGT, NJF & JKF) Today we look at the TMG Classic Round Last. The classically round shaped toe that the TMG last displays can take you wherever you want to go: from boardrooms to ballrooms. It’s subtle shape ensures an elegant look no matter what style of shoe it is made on. If you are a classic man, then our TMG last is the one that will suit your needs best. This last is […]

The NGT Last

Dear All, We have 7 last shapes at J.F Footwear and wanted to start doing some blog posts about each of them. (LPB, TMG, MGF, SEA, NGT, NJF & JKF) Today we look at the NGT last. Our NGT last was designed to be the midway point between our TMG and JKF lasts ( to come in next posts). It’s intention was to serve as a last that was neither too round nor too pointy. We felt that this creation posed as the ideal ‘modern round’ last. The toe shape is not the only detail that separates our NGT last […]

If you are thinking about MTO, I would suggest looking at our MTO […]

Summer Suede’s- From Loafers to Chukkas

Dear All, We are now well into Spring Summer here in London and I’ve certainly been favouring my various Suede shoes and love the versatility and different styles you can create. Suede is synonymous for wearing on the dry, bright sunny days and can really add another dimension to ones outfit with the choice of colours available. This season we have bought quite heavily into Suede and turns out it was a good idea. Suede Loafers- great for wearing with Jeans, Chinos and sometimes even Shorts. They really do have a more relaxed look to them which also presents an […]

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 […]

Group MTO- Coming Soon

One thing which we are very excited about is the upcoming launch of our new Group MTO Programme (launching Mid-Feb) This has been done by many brands to great effect and we can see why. In short you get the chance to purchase a shoe not available in the ready-to-wear collection but without an MTO upcharge Fee. We are always making samples of shoes which we like and also MTO samples to showcase what can be done in this service. Below is […]

Ballard Chukka Boot- Perfect Wet weather Shoe

Dear All, I have to admit it, winter is fast approaching here in London and its getting cold. There is one benefit to Winter approaching and that is getting our the Winter Wardrobe. It’s time to pull out the knitwear, wool socks, cashmere overcoats and more importantly the winter Boots! Now I am a man of practicality when it comes to Winter attire and especially in my footwear as there is nothing worse than getting dressed in nice shoes with leather soles and stepping outside in the pouring rain to know deep down how much damage its doing. Our New Ballard […]

All Black David Boot

Brogued balmoral boots used to be the standard back in the Victorian era and after seeing this one, I am beginning to understand why. Normally I am not the biggest of plain black shoes/boots, but after a customer emailed me up stating that he just wanted a plain black dye job done on our new David boot that is currently undergoing a collaboration with Dandy Shoe Care, I can see the appeal now after a high shine is added. And while I normally also avoid having too many plain black shoes in my RTW collection, after seeing this one, I […]
