Tasselmate – The New & Only Way to Fix Your Tassels

I was recently introduced to the concept of Tasselmate, a brilliant yet simple product that allows you to fix your mangy, curled up tassels in some very easy and quick steps. I never really thought about needing to have to do this as my first ever tassel loafer has just been acquired recently when I made myself of sample of my new Ravenna model. However, after wearing them a good amount of times, one of […]

J.FitzPatrick S/S2016 Collection Now Available!

We went a bit overboard this year on our S/S2016 collection, bringing in a total of 14 new SKU’s of which are heavily geared towards bright colored suedes and two toned oxfords. We put an emphasis on expanding the color offering on our Madison penny loafer, now coming in 3 calfskin and 3 suede options. We are particularly excited about the burgundy and green suede options which we feel would be great addition to any […]

Christian Kimber – The New Collection

I always love watching the progression of someone who has a goal in mind and is trying to achieve that goal. Most probably like how many of you have watched me go from shoe shine boy to shoe company owner and blogger. And Christian Kimber is one of those people that I have enjoyed watching progress, not only for turning into a footwear designer but also for his role as a major player in the […]

Proper Belgian Loafers by Velasca

  These are the best actual Belgian loafers that I have ever seen and that is because they have a proper sole to them. I was actually thinking of doing this one day too, but looks like Velasca beat me to it. Oh well! But well done on them as I think that this is the way they should really look. I am not quite so sure why I have such an aversion to paper […]

The Shoe Snob Trunk Shows NYC & Sweden – June/July

Each year, I hope to slowly but surely expand my brand and in doing so attempt to go to some of my favorites places for trunk shows, as well as expand to new markets if and when I can. While there is nothing new for these trips in terms of locations (country wise but am going to Gothenburg as well this time), what has happened since I was in both places is that I have […]

J.FitzPatrick Sample Sale – Leftover Stock Online at Bottom Prices

Dear Readers, For those of you whom were not able to attend our London sample sales, I have put what was leftover online at the absolute lowest prices can be. To be honest, it was not a massive result (maybe people were still feeling their wallets from the last one) so in reality all of you abroad did not really miss out on much. On another note, there are mainly the larger sizes available (with […]

Gaziano & Girling Holkham

What’s funny is that I have been to the Gaziano & Girling shop about a million times now and have seen this shoe those same million times but it never really hit me like it did today when seeing their new photography on the website. And what dawned on me most, was the fact that out of the 80 or so pairs of dress shoes that I have, not one of them is a dark […]

The Sale Continues….With Up To 33% Off Of Retail Price Now!

Dear Readers, I hope that everyone has had a nice week and that you are all ready for a pleasant and hopefully relaxing weekend. It’s getting quite cold here in London so my priority will be to keep warm! As some of you might have caught in yesterday’s post, our business is moving location back to another part of London (Mayfair) and need to make our move as convenient as possible. That being, as we […]

Sample Sale Leftovers for J.FitzPatrick

Dear Readers, Okay, well the sample sale is over and I have finally managed to unpack everything and put it all online. This is however, only for J.FitzPatrick stock. As per G&G’s leftover stock, it is now gone. Because the majority of you don’t live in London (and I felt bad because of that) as well the fact that I hate to make things too complicated, I have opened up all shoes to be sold […]

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 […]
