New Aubercy Loafers

I know many of us are approaching Autumn here, but in many other places they are approaching Summer so I could not help but show these beauts, by Aubercy, to the world as I am a sucker for the use of denim in a shoe and on top of that, a light denim no less (which I have yet to see). I don’t think that I have ever owned a pair of jeans in the shade […]

J.FitzPatrick A/W Shoes Now In Stock!

  The A/W stock to my footwear line, J.FitzPatrick Footwear, has finally arrived! For this season I have stepped out of the classic dress shoe type and finally realized a shoe that I have always wanted but had never found one that really struck me and that is the classic Alpine boot. Calling it the Snoqualmie and naming after a ski resort/mountain in Washington (my home state), the purpose of the design was to try […]

More Denim in Shoes – This time by Barbanera!

For me, it’s always nice to see denim being used in shoes. Usually you find it paired with brown, but Barbanera decided to do something a bit different this time and put it with a black shoe. Many people might not think that black leather and denim would suit each other so well as black leather is usually seen as quite formal and denim being the ultimate in casual, but as this shoe as a […]

Cheaney at Pitti Uomo 86

Playing a whole lot of catch up today trying to unbox all of the leftover sample sale stock, not to mention that I am getting hit with the flu, thanks to the drastic weather change, lack of sleep and non-stop work. Therefore, don’t have a ton of time to write but I wanted to show you what Cheaney had on offer at the latest Pitti, showing what I believe was a mixture of A/W2014 as […]

J.FitzPatrick Update: Size UK6/6.5 — Winter Models — Stock Refill

But yes, I have received about 85% of my stock for my new sizes and they are now available for purchase on the website. The majority of the models have that […]

Farfalla Shoes – The Armoury

There aren’t many shoes styles that I don’t own that I have been dying to get, but out of the few that there actually are, the Belgian styled loafer is definitely near the top! I have always been so curious about these unmistakeably distinguished loafers, mainly for the simple fact that the piping/bow always contrasts to the rest of the shoe, which as many of you know, is something (contrasting) that I quite fancy. I […]

Today’s Favorites – Bottega Veneta – Denim Dress Shoes

Picture Courtesy Of: The Shoe Buff One of the coolest shoes that I have ever seen (believe it or not) was a pair of Hugo Boss shoes that were a mix between brown leather and bright blue jean denim, in the pattern of a spectator (co-respondent). Now, I can’t say if I would feel the same way about them today, as this was about 6 years ago and my tastes have changed since then, but […]
