Men’s So Called Style Mags Peddle Crap Advice

dscf0129

I recently went to Windsor to see the lovely castle there and for the train ride I decided to buy one of the men’s style magazines for the journey. Now, I used to be the most religious magazine buyer there was, not only did I not buy a subscription I stupidly paid full price for each mag, each month. That was until one day I realized that all I was reading was the same rubbish […]

Suede Wholecuts by VASS

2016-12-01-12-39-14

I have always loved the idea of the suede wholecut, such as these beauties by Laszlo Vass. That combination between formal style and a more casual material blended together to make quite the ultimate shoe is something that has always fascinated me. You can’t go wrong really. When I look at this, I say to myself ‘there is nothing I could not wear this with.’ I mean, okay if we get technical you can’t put […]

Aubercy’s Latest Creations

ens-vega-1024x683

The Parisian shoe house, Aubercy, never ceases to amaze me for their design brilliance. I won’t lie and say that I love every intricate design that they make, but I can appreciate the majority of them and love a great many, such as this new amazing penny loafer with contrasted piping. This loafer, while nothing groundbreaking in terms of design just goes to show you the little details that make up shoe design such as […]

Monkstrap Madness by Vass for Ascot Shoes

vass-shoes

I am not sure how popular the classic cap toe double monk is these days as it has been a trend now for longer than trends usually last, but when I saw this picture and all of the options, I was taken back to the idea of how nice a double monk can be, especially when you get to see in it in colors outside of black and dark brown. The picture is courtesy of […]

Happy Thanksgiving + Shoes

edward-green-boots-leffot

First and foremost, I would like to wish all that celebrate, a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was always my favorite holiday, mainly because I literally got all of my family into one room (one part of it that is, my mother’s is mainly in Mexico) and secondly because the food was a treat. My great grandparents made the most amazing gravy and I would drizzle it onto my whole plate…..the good ‘ol days. And as sad […]

JF Shoes x The Shoe Snob – Our New Jodhpur Boot, Black Friday & New Massdrop

genesee2

It has been an interesting A/W for us at J.FitzPatrick Footwear and The Shoe Snob (same company). We did five new colors on our button boot model, the Westlake, as well as introduce our newly designed button shoe, the Aurora, but what I think what was most anticipated but also delayed by 2 months (due to leather issues) was our new Jodhpur boot, the Genesee. But thankfully it is now in stock (save a few […]
