Burgundy – The Versatile Colour

Dear All, There are many people which come into our showroom or check via email about the versatility of wearing Burgundy/Oxblood/ Plum coloured shoes. For me, this colour palette really does compliment and blend well with most shades of Blue and Grey (apart from very light grey and blue IMO). People often get stuck in wearing different shades of brown, which is not bad thing, but for those that have exhausted all the shades of Brown and shied away from Burgundy, now is the time to add this colour to the collection. Wearing a really rich colour like Burgundy, or […]

Recent MTO 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.

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 […]

MTO PROMOTION – 50% OFF MTO FEE IN SEPTEMBER

After having had a successful launch to our MTO program, and giving a good year of make-ups, we at J.FitzPatrick Footwear felt that it was finally time to offer a deal on our MTO program by knocking off 50% of the MTO fee from now until the end of Sept. Our MTO program is very flexible and there are many things that you can do within in, short of copying other models and/or creating a brand new pattern. But with a little vision, many things can be changed to create a very unique piece of footwear. We also offer very competitive MTO prices […]

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 […]

The LPB- A Soft Chisel

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 LPB Soft Chisel Last. The soft chisel last is the tamer Brother of the MGF Sharp chisel (See previous post). It’s softer lines ensure a safer look and in fact can complement just about any style. The LPB last is no exception and would look good with any suit or smart trouser. Pair it with your heavy English flannel or your lightweight Italian wool and […]

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 […]
