J FitzPatrick Appreciation Thread - Page 63
First post here. I wanted to thank Justin for his honest and informative blog which I have always really enjoyed. On the other hand, I would like wish him best succes in the industry. I wanted to mention that we have here a few good shoe companies and that Justin is working with one of the best ( and I am sure that his knowledge is contributing to pass them much expertise too). Justin, is there any retailer that I can try your shoes on in Spain?. Maybe in the factory?. I am not in a hurry but definetly would like to check fit before I pull the trigger one of this days. Thanks in advance.

Finally took delivery of the Magnolias yesterday and gave the museum calf a first run today.
A most attractive and comfortable shoe, and a great price.
Yeah same here. I'm sure Justin will fill us in sooner than later.
@The Shoe Snob I sent a PM regarding the sizing for Massdrop monks. Great deal, especially in museum
colors will be:
dark brown suede
new deep wine color as shown on post 921 on page before
and the Rugged Brown, same as the Snoqualmie boot
all on NGT last.
Still thinking about the soles....most likely rubber sole but possibly with a leather mid sole as I don't like the thin sole look on a jodhpur boot

Wanted to give a quick post about TheShoeSnob Polish vs Saphir MdO polish. I'm certain some of us know TSS is rebranded Saphir, however one poster in the shoe care thread doubted this, so I posted some pictures. I thought it would be helpful here as well for those interested in Justin's products.
To be extra clear, both products are made by Avel in France. I also have his Mink Oil Renovator, but *ran out of* Saphir Renovateur so I can't do comparison pictures. I'm also certain Justin's Mink Oil Renovator is rebranded as Renovateur. Save yourself a few bucks!
