Understanding Shoe Colors Online, and Lighting

In photography, lighting is key. It is 70% of the battle in my opinion. If the lighting (or camera setting with that lighting) is not right it is very hard to then capture the true color of something, especially certain shades of leather. All different types of lighting will also give a different interpretation of something. In most cases there are these types of lighting: Daylight, Sunlight, White Light, Yellow Light, Low Lighting (think your […]

Hi Top Sneakers – Yes or No?

My love for shoes started with sneakers. It is a natural progression as very few youngsters (read teenagers) start by loving dress shoes. For me, it was Nike all day. But outside of basketball shoes, I always preferred low tops but liked the idea of the Hi-Top. I guess my issue was the struggle on how to style it.

J.FitzPatrick – NYC Shop Now Open!

After months of building out our shop, we are finally ready and able to open our doors to the public. It is a great feeling too as this is technically the first street-level shop the J.FitzPatrick brand has had since the brand’s launch back in 2013. We have gone through several concessions inside other tailor’s premises and two basement level showrooms but this is the first shop we can call our own and no less […]

Crockett & Jones, the leading British shoemaker in my opinion, finally decided to launch their own version after having made the model for other British shoe brands for the past 40 years. Its gaining ground and in […]
