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. 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 […]

Summer Party Season- Loafers are a must

Dear All, I hope you had a pleasant weekend. Summer is pretty much in full swing which also means plenty more parties; including BBQs, a day at the races, Henley Regatta, Wimbledon and many more garden parties happening. Finding the correct outfit to wear at all these events is quite challenging but I think Loafers are always a winner. (Unless in enclosures with specific dress codes) I recently went to the Epsom Races (not in Royal enclosure) so could wear something ‘smart/casual’. I ended up wearing a Blue Suede loafer with navy chinos, blue shirt and a rather bright linen […]

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 […]

A few Recent MTO examples

Dear All, Hope you had a great weekend! We are really enjoying seeing some of the creations our clients are making in their MTO purchases. Some rather bold (like above) and then some a bit more classic but all have their own unique characteristics. 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 […]

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 […]

The MGF Last- A Sharp Chisel

Dear All, We now 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 MGF Sharp Chisel Last. The Chisel toe is the quintessential shape for a smart shoe that means business. Its sharp, yet fluid shape ensures a professional look throughout and also maintains a manner of elegance and style unrivaled by many. This last is probably our most generous last in terms of width and room in the Toe Box. The arch support and heel support is […]
