Price Points & What You Get In Return

Warning: Long, educational post. With the rise of online interaction between regular people comes a rise of misinformation by so-called “experts” i.e. people who own a few shoes and think they know best because they own a few shoes. I used to be one of those people too, when starting this blog, having worked in a shoe store and having owned a few. Little did I know that I didn’t really know shit. It wasn’t […]

The City Hiker: Inspiration and How to Style

The Snoqualmie boot, by my brand J.FitzPatrick Footwear, has two inspirations behind it. One from the Ski Boot/Alpine boot that was introduced to the menswear realm many years ago, but in a more robust, heavy manner (think the Avoriaz by Paraboot). It came on the scene as one step down from the real Alpine hiking boot, to be something that you could wear in a smart-casual way. I always liked the idea of this but […]

My Daily Wears – Nov 6th

As we have fully immersed into Autumn, my boots have been at the forefront of my wardrobe selection. Ironically, today it up into the high 60’s, which is very strange for Weather in November in NYC. Stramge or not I took full advantage of it to have one last hoorah with light-colored trousers/suede loafers before they hit the closet not to be seen until March-ish. As you can see, jeans-wear is a big part of […]

My Daily Wear’s

My trousers always look shorter in photo than in real life. But I do like showing a bit of sock and as I wear my trousers/jeans tapered, they hike up a little. The best length, for me, is for your trouser to just kiss your shoes that way none […]

How to Style Button Boots – Casually

  In the modern-day, it is not a rule that button boots have to be worn with a suit. Sure, in the Victorian and Edwardian times, they did not wear chinos, jeans, and the like but instead wore them with proper trousers, suits, and their garb of the era. But times have clearly changed since then. So have ideas on style, on ‘the rules’, and what is seen as acceptable versus not-acceptable. There is nothing like […]
