So you read his blog, and deliberately made the effort to come to SF to post your jab in this thread? What's your problem?

Which size should I pick to ensure the best fit on the NGT last? Should I go up half a size? Any help would be appreciated

Based on that, i would stick with the UK9. But getting this boot is more about how high your instep is or how wide your calves are as fastening up the buttons is what causes most people the problems. However, we did just source button hooks and are now selling them so they can make it a whole lot easier to fasten up.

Justin's response is spot on - as I would expect.  I'd just add that I think each variation of his button boots is an absolute winner.

If you follow his history not only on my thread and others what you will find is that @Beach Bum has some sort of personal fetish with attacking me as he seems to be a completely normal person outside of my thread. Which is quite weird. What he doesnt get is that his sad attempts at hurting my feelings or bothering me never work and only make himself look like the fool. To Beach Bum: I am glad that I consume so much of your thought activity. I thank you actually. Because as the stubborn person that I am, proving the naysayers like you wrong is one thing that helps to keep me going. And if you are ever in London, please do come show yourself. Keyboard warriors are never respected.

Its the last day of our Winter Sale. There are not a lot of welted shoes left (mainly for uk12/us13) but it is a good chance to get some driving loafers at a great price for the S/S season

Agreed. Not sure I could coordinate the "skittles" or the purple-blue-turquoise, I would lean more on the classic side of patina.

The boot on the far left is something I could rock all day long.  The rest would be too funky for my workplace, but hey, if I were in a different industry I'd feel a good deal less constrained!

Agree completely, or either of the examples Justin has made.

Hey just wanted to post a few pictures from one of my other J. Fitzpatrick boots that I haven't posted before. This is the Wedgwood plain toe balmoral boot with a black calf upper and a black watch tartan shaft on the TMG last:

 

 

 

 


This is after I wore them for a full day of work! Enjoy!

And here is another pair. This is the Northgate 4 eyelet wing tip in dark brown scotch grain on the TMG last, after wearing them. 

 

 

 

 


Hope you guys like them!

Two older samples, based off of the Wedgwood pattern, that I made which are available for MTO/GMTO

Tan boot: Meadowbrook

Black boot with brogueing: Jimmy

All boots going forward will have 4 speedhooks unless otherwise specified

Enjoy!
