post #1081 of 1240

Shawl lapel, Thank you so much for that set of pictures. My foot is 11.5 D US with a high instep so your information is very useful. My right is a hair smaller than my left  and my heels seem to be a bit narrower than most people so getting sizing exactly right is difficult. This helps quite a bit with direct comparisons of several companies and lasts I'm considering. I'm fairly sure my next shoe purchase will either be a JFitz, Carmina, or Bonafe with the edge going to the first 2 at the moment based on last shapes and sizing information from you guys.

@CanadaCal the instep is generous and Vass is bigger in that regard only by millimeters. I haven't tried Enzo Bonafe to compare but they have high insteps from what I've read. Justin's are definitely more comfortably roomy than Carmina. Again, the instep is an area where people probably don't need much room (as compared to toe or heel) but a little bit can make a difference.

@winghus the JFP heels should work for you as they're narrower than what I've worn from Carmina. The lasts are a good compromise between shape and toe room as well. Close to the foot without sacrificing width across the ball. Don't be afraid to email Justin for sizing help either smile.gif

Nice! Did you have to size down 0.5 from your usual UK size for this model?

post #1086 of 1240
Sized up a half for this and the Marcos. Standard for all the oxfords and boots. I have a wide-ish forefoot; I like Carmina's Rain last best, for reference. All the JF shoe lasts seem like a good standard fit for me. Only the first loafers were too small at the ball, and the monkey boot and button boots I find a bit saggy in the waist.

Just bought the green suede loafer in standard size too: it's close across the forefoot but more forgiving; didn't need to size up like I did with the other loafers.

i would say it is not a soft shoe like a Belgian, it is a classic British style in terms of construction. The soles are not too heavy and stiff like some, and they are comftable but not as soft and this as a Belgian or Blake stitched loafer. They are not heavy and chunky as some loafers I have tried. I have a brown calf but I expect the suede to be a lot softer after wear.

I would say if you were looking for that style this is not the shoe for you, it is a Goodyear welted shoe at the end of the day and regardless of how comftable they are, and how soft the uppers are, and how tight the welt it is not going to be as "soft" as an unlined loafer, Belgian style for example.

I do highly reccomend them depending on what you are looking for.

Thank you very much. I appreciate your analysis.

Some MTO's from 2016 to show.

As of now, MTO fees are only £90 upcharge per pair (ex VAT £75) whether shoes, loafers or boots......that is about $100 for those of you in the US

2016 is the year to get an MTO because as Brexit has greatly affected the British Pound and prices are always rising at the factory, I will say that come 2017 these prices will change and boots will have a higher fee. I just want to forewarn those that are on the fence...

Hopefully you like what you see..... email: mto@jfitzpatrickfootwear.com for any queries and see link below for more examples

We have just commenced our 2nd Markdown for our Summer Sale

http://www.jfitzpatrickfootwear.com/collections/sale

post #1093 of 1240

After seeing more pics of the Forest Green Rainier in the wild and this additional markdown I had to pull the trigger. Very excited.

post #1094 of 1240

Purchased the Madison loafers in brown calf/brown grain. Great price, and hope they fit as I went with my size in the Carmina Rain last! Needed a more dressy brown loafer as my current one skews casual (AE Patriot in brown calf) and these tick off all the boxes. Excited to receive my firs tpair of J Fitzpatrick shoes!

post #1095 of 1240

Purchased the Madison loafer in plum museum calf. Anxiously waiting, hope they fit...

Excited to receive my first pair of J Fitzpatrick shoes as well~
