Today’s Favorites – Tassel Loafers

Premise: “Let’s get as many colors as we can into this shot!” Outcome: Successful! To me, this is quite a cool picture. While I certainly wouldn’t execute most of these combinations, I find them to be quite intriguing nonetheless. I particularly love the striped socks, the graphite colored jeans on the left and the Lobb looking loafers accompanying those jeans! The attraction to this photo makes me think about how truly intriguing is is, in […]

Socks or No Socks: That’s The Question…..

DO – This guy, has mastered wearing no socks with a dress-casual outfit It has been awhile since I have done a controversial piece, yet as my moniker is ‘The Shoe Snob,’ and I do have quite strong feelings about many things within the shoe world, I felt that it was about time that I spoke my mind about something which needs speaking about. As is evident from the title, the date today (being Spring […]

What I Am Wearing

The thing about me, is that I love blue, as you might know from previous posts, or as you might be able to tell by looking at this outfit. I mean, with the exception of the shoes, there is some form of blue in every other piece of my outfit. Some might find this excessive, but as I love it, it doesn’t matter. Now what I am getting at, is that I think that a […]

The eBay Experience

I have never been someone who has had a whole lot of patience, unfortunate as that may be. This downfall has prohibited me from taking part in many things…like learning how to actually hit the ball in golf, reading a book past the first 10 pages (it better grab me), and last but not least, taking advantage of the wonderful creation called eBay. Some things are obviously more important than others, in terms of helping […]

Some More J. FitzPatrick Prototypes….!

Dear Readers, I have finally received the rest of my prototypes, adjusted up to this point, and am feeling a whole lot better about the way that my line is taking shape. At this moment, the shoes are finally done with all of the pattern adjustments, which takes up the majority of the prototype work. Now, I just have to finalize the minute details like lining & sole colors, perfecting the medallion (placing on shoe […]

What I Am Wearing – Suede Loafers & Blazer

This outfit here is one of my more classic looks, as in I believe that this is something that many others have done before: brown suede loafers, khaki looking trousers, blue blazer & gold/yellow tie. And even though I usually try not to be too classic, I must say that I quite like this look. For me it gives the notion of one who likes to be smart looking but not stuffy. This look is […]

J. FitzPatrick Shoe Line Progression

Getting a company up and running may be just one of the most difficult things in the world, particularly when there are products involved that have to be produced by someone else. Naturally, being naive, you may somewhat underestimate the amount of time that it takes to actually even begin (as I have) which will then set you up for a crash course in zen-like patience, as you twiddle your thumbs each day waiting for […]

Shoes Of The Week – Lodger Jodhpur Boots

It’s always nice being able to find a shoe that it is truly unique in it’s design. I take that back, it is truly amazing to find something that is unique in it’s design and looks great. I see a lot of crap design that tried way too hard to go outside of the box to create something unique and ends up becoming something that looks alien or along those lines. But this jodhpur boot […]

What I Am Wearing

Sorry for all of the mean looking faces, but like a reader commented before, it’s quite challenging to make a smile when you are taking a photo of yourself. I don’t really why, but I find myself unable to smile when I am taking these photos. Even when I try, it just comes out like a forced smirk, but never a genuine smile. Anyway, I am wrapping up the rest of my waistcoat outfits, as […]

What I Am Wearing

I am really beginning to feel that when they advertise how many mega pixels are on a camera (when you buy it), I don’t think that the number is accurate. These pictures (obviously taken through a mirror) seem to come out so bad, yet I have seen other bloggers do the same thing, with their iphone and the pictures come out tremendously better. Maybe I am the culprit, dysfunctional when it comes to taking photographs. […]
