Crockett & Jones Spring 2020 Loafers – Now Live and Electrifying!

It’s a new day and famous English shoemakers, Crockett & Jones, is taking bounds and leaps in 2020, which is very pleasing to see to say the least. I love their new Spring/Summer line up. Probably my favorite collection of theirs that I have seen. Mainly because I am very partial to two of the models: The Braided Loafers and the Butterfly loafers. Two of my all-time favorite loafer styles. So needless to say, my […]

Happy 4th of July!

Wishing everyone a Happy 4th of July and the long weekend to follow! I hope that everyone enjoys themselves this weekend and takes some time to relax and enjoy the beauty of Summer! And since, I was writing a lot of strong words about dressing overly casual recently, I thought that I would back up what I say by showing what I wear in the tropics when it is 90F (32C) and 70% humidity. Not […]

Braided Loafers by Barbanera – Summer Wear Italian Style!

There are two things that I love: 1. Braided leather and 2. Unique Designs. The Schifano loafer by Barbanera gives us both of those things and is one of my favorite models released this Summer. The internet is filled with your typical suede penny loafers and as much as I appreciate them, I am quite bored of seeing the same thing on a different last shape by a different maker for a different price. And […]

Discover the Laurelhurst II Braided Loafers – J.FitzPatrick Footwear

Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to why you launch a new product. Something just happens in time and all things fall into place. That is kind of what happened with the Braided Laurelhurst II. I was at our factory and noticed a braided shoe and enquired about seeing the factory that does the braiding as I was intrigued. I had mixed feelings about braided shoes. I never liked all of the Mezlan ones […]
