Recent MTOs

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 […]

My new MTO Boots

Happy Friday to you all. I wanted to share with you pics my new pair of MTO Boots -The David Boot in Walnut Museum Calf/Gold Tweed on the SEA Last and with a City Rubber Sole. I am very pleased how they came out, especially as I hadn’t seen a Boot on the SEA Last before. Walnut Museum Calf Leather really works very well with most styles of Denim/Chinos which is why I chose this versatile colour. Another option that was important for me was to have the super comfortable City Rubber Sole. With the Winter in full swing here […]

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 […]

Group MTO- Coming Soon

Dear All, It’s been a very busy start to 2017 and we can only see it getting busier! 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 […]

Samples- where the inspiration starts

  Dear All, Hope you are having a great week. Many of you may or may not know how long it takes to come up with the model that you see in each Ready to wear collection. It is a long process from an idea that Justin has sketched on a piece of paper to the finished article available to buy online or in store. When I worked on Savile Row and Jermyn St in previous jobs, being part of Management I got to see alot of how the design teams came up with garments ready for a collection which […]

Green is the New Blue!

I have been seeing a lot more green in the shoe world. And I think that it is great progress. I remember when I used to preach the idea of wearing navy/blue shoes as a way to break the rules and step outside of the norm. Now I see blue shoes all of the time and I am so happy for it. Almost every conservative brand (or once conservative) now has a pair of blue shoes in the RTW rotation. Some even have more than one. But now I feel that green is the next color. I see people asking […]
