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 New Stefano Redux- Now Live

Dear all, We are pleased to announce the latest arrival into our collection- the new Stefano Model. A many of you will be aware, our logo for The Shoe Snob Ltd is based on a shoe that Justin personally made whilst learning shoemaking with the late (and great) Stefano Bemer. The saddle shoe is one of our personal favourites and this model is a true reflection of where the brand was first envisaged. Unlike our previous Stefano model, the new one has the brogueing on the saddle which further epitomises the exact shoe that was made by Justin on the […]

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 […]

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.

The Roosevelt- Two Tones for Summer

Dear All, It’s the time of year when you can add a bit of boldness and colour to your daily outfit. What better way than to wear a two tone oxford to set you apart from the crowd. We decided to discontinue our older two tone model (the Rainier) and to release our new version The Roosevelt and we are really pleased with the outcome. We have 3 colourways for SS17 and all have their own characteristics that will work with specific attires. My personal favourite is the Burgundy/Blue Suede as I love this colour combination in general and this […]

The Genesee- A Jodphur Boot with a twist

  Dear All, Hope everyone is enjoying the festive period and more importantly enjoying Boot season. The change of seeing more and more boots around town is always interesting at this time of year. There are plenty of the usual chunky, misshaped boots that seem that the arctic would be more suitable and then there are some splendid looking dress boots out there too. Alongside out popular Westlake Button Boot, this year we have launched out version of the historic Jodphur Boot. There are many theories behind how and when this style of boot came about but instead of delving […]

Monkstraps- Single or Double?

So here at J.FitzPatrick we like to get feedback from you and recently a topic of conversation has been about Monkstraps. Now, personally I am a big fan of Double Monks as I have the Montlake in both Cedar Calf and the Snuff Suede model along with some others from different brands but since joining the J.FitzPatrick team I have seen more customers buying the Single Monk Fauntleroy (above) than the Montlake (below).   Why is that, that’s the question? I do understand and agree that if we were to make a black single and double monk the single would aesthetically appeal […]
