Dear All, We are holding a Pre-Sale of our new Wholecut Chelsea Boot- The Alki and some more colours in the popular Jodhpur Boot- The Genesee. The Alki: A Chelsea Boot has always been something we wanted to do in our collection and we now finally have a pattern we are really happy with. The Chelsea Boot is a classic and we wanted to offer something slightly different from the ‘norm’. Firstly this is a wholecut which is not commonly found in ready to wear., especially at this price point! This gives the whole boot a much more elegant look and […]

The Tony II- A Wholecut with a twist

Dear All, A wholecut oxford is sometimes just too classic and predictable but not this one! Our Tony II in Dark Brown Museum Calf and Black presents a nice and sleek alternative to the classic wholecut that, will leave many admiring your feet. The Tony II comes on the LPB last and I feel it gives a lovely silhouette to this model. The fun is in in the ‘bouncy ball’ design which is not something commonly seen. We wanted to design something that has a fun twist yet remaining classic and elegant. Whilst this isn’t going to break records for […]

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 […]

MTO- The best of both worlds

, Recently we have been getting more and more requests about our MTO service so I wanted to give you all a bit more info on this service as it’s the perfect way to have the best of our signature J.FitzPatrick footwear styles but your own individual style. Firstly, MTO means Made To Order, this is not Bespoke. From working in the suiting industry people often got confused between the two and our MTO service is based on our existing patterns/lasts but then you get to have some fun with the design, the lasts, soles and so on (see below). How it works: Any model that […]

The Tony II- A twist on a classic

  A wholecut oxford is sometimes just too classic and predictable but not this one! The Tony II in Antique Brown and Black presents a nice and sleek alternative to the classic wholecut that, will leave many admiring your feet. The Tony II comes on the LPB last and I feel it gives a lovely silhouette to this model. The fun is in in the brogue design which is not something seen in all the classic shoe brands. Whilst this ins’t going tobreak records for innovation, the slight twist on the classic certainly gives the shoe a ‘J Fitzpatrick look’. […]

A Switch In Tanneries – Museum Calf Now Used

As a shoe brand owner you are (or at least should be) trying to make your shoes better and better. There are generally about 4 main ways in which you can do that: 1. Leather used; 2. Last shapes and thus fit; 3. Construction techniques and 4. small details like fiddleback waists, handsewn aprons, addition of toe taps etc. But being that most shoes are made of leather, that is really the top priority as you really can’t fake bad leather nor leather with faults in it. That being, I was frustrated with a certain leather that I used to […]

The Clean Wholecut

I always knew that I needed a wholecut in my collections of shoes. It is a standard model and stupid not to really have one. But as the defiant person that I am, I purposefully made a way to have my wholecut be different and thus made the Tony model with it’s bouncy-ball wing cap brogueing. However, some people just don’t fancy that and have since requested making just a plain, normal and clean wholecut. And voila this is what you get. Of course. I still like a very plain wholecut only that my defiance came in trying to separate […]
