Meermin Navy Suede Monks

Dear Readers,

Sorry that I have missed out two days on the posting but I forgot to tell you on Monday that I was heading to my factory the next day, which is why I have not been able to write anything, especially as I cant figure out how to load images on my tablet (friggin technology!!). That being, I have managed to sneek away 10 minutes in order to share some lovely shoes with you, these navy suede beauties by Meermin Mallorca. I have always loved the idea of a contrast sole, and fight the urge to do it on my RTW shoes, as it is something that probably would not appeal to the masses but only a few crazies like myself. While I might have thought to do a dark brown (as opposed to black) edge on the sole, I like how Meermin chose to even go lighter and put this reddish brown shade that just gives it that much more contrasting edge about it. A beautiful option that I could see myself living in, particularly as I believe that they would pair marvelously with a nice pair of jeans, my go-to style of trouser!

As per my time here at the factory, well I have finalized my chisel toe last (to be seen A/W 2013) and am getting a few new tassel loafers in for the summer season (if it actually ever comes!!). I have also started working on my ‘soft’ chisel last that will pair nicely with another new loafer that I am designing…. Exciting and unique things to come in the J.FitzPatrick world, so be on the look out…. On that note, I have decided to dedicate a new site to my line (a Tumblr one) so that I dont have to plague The Shoe Snob as much for all of you not interested….so also be on the look out for that, coming soon….

See you tomorrow!!
