Just joined the MassDrop sale. For those of you that may be interested, Justin is offering wide widths and Brown Ilcea Museum calf. Had to jump in at $300 shipped.

Sorry @Blake686, busy weekend. I will snap some when I get home today and post them.

Ok @Blake686 here are some pics from this afternoon (overcast and cloudy).

The spoilered ones are more pictures of the Wedgwoods and one of the Carminas outdoors so you can get an idea. This is Carmina burgundy (burdeos?), JFP burgundy crust, AE merlot




More:
The burgundy really pops in the sunlight. They are much more subdued indoors though. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I am planning to order J.Fitzpatrick Magnolia from Massdrop.

Therefore, I need some help in sizing.

 

I wear the following shoes in the following size/lasts.

 

C&J 348 - 6.5 UK

 

Church's 136 - 6F UK

 

John Lobb 8695 - 6E UK

 

Alden Barrie last - 6E / 6.5D US

 

 

 

Thank you :D

Just to let you know, the Massdrop on our Magnolia model ends in 19 hours.

For those worried about the burgundy, I won't lie, it is a strong color (but in a good way). It is also made from Crust calf and like @WhereNext said, it can be easily deepened in color with a bit of polish should you wish to do so.

And I think @Shawl Lapel's pictures really highlight the fact that they are relatively subdued in less than direct sunlight.

Thanks for the reminder, Justin.

 

I've just jumped in for the antique brown and the burgundy.

 

I've only got one pair of your shoes, and I bought them before you offered differing widths.

 

As I'm an EE with Lobb and an F with G&G, I went with the F width for the Magnolias. I trust I've done the right thing.

Thanks for the support!!

How did the first pair of my shoes fit you? Because if you are F in G&G that is the equivalent to my E width? So it's hard to say if you did the right thing. But then EE in Lobb would equate to my F so I am slightly confused.....what model did you get of mine and how did it fit?

J Fitzpatrick shoe owners, does anyone have Last-minute sizing advice for Magnolia captoe: my only reference points are a 7.5UK captoe in Carmina rain, which is a wider fitting last (unsure how wide) that fits well but is slightly snug across the forefoot, a 9D US in Johnston and Murphy which is oddly a perfect fit (including width), a 8.5E in AE park aves which bows at the ankles a bit but is otherwise wide enough, and a 8UK in a sutor mantellassi that I was told runs small, which is slightly too large even though it runs small. The big question is am I a 7.5 normal in magnolia or do I go for a wide width? Or do I go for an 8 normal even though the sutor 8 UK is too large as I have been alrernatingly a 8.5 or 9D in US brands? Any advice welcome, thanks everyone

The JF shoes are Broadways. Just checked them and they are 11Es. Might have been a tad smarter to do that before ordering!

 

They seem roomier on my foot than some G&G Fs, which as I understand it is the G&G wider fitting. TG73s are quite (and sometimes too) snug in F, whereas the MH71 in F is perfect.

 

Just to complicate matters, I have 2 pairs of the same model Lobbs - one is E and the other EE. The former is wearable but the latter is definitely more comfortable.

 

Having said all that, as the Broadways fit well, I've changed my order to Es.

I wanna jump in on the Massdrop deal for a pair of museum calf Magnolias but I am a bit concerned about my high instep.  It's not ridiculously high but high enough to be a pain with some oxfords where a proper tight lacing is not achievable.  I normally wear US size 8D, should I get a UK size 7E or 7F?  Any suggestions are appreciated.

 

Edit: Ah well, pulled the trigger on a pair in 7E thanks to a very persuasive enabler on this forum (you know who you are!)

In no way shape or form was I associated with this... (Justin, feel free to send a finder's fee :D )

I'm a 9.5 in Rain and my Wedgwood boots were a little high volume in the forefoot for me. I wear insoles in mine to take up a little of the space. If Rain is snug for you I think 7.5 on TMG will be fine.

EDIT: I'm too late! You'll just have to buy direct now tongue.gif
