So I was going to purchase a pair of black cap toe oxfords. I have never owned a pair, I always went with something else (whole cut, wing tip, brown/burgundy cap toe, anything but the black cap toe).

I lined up about 10 different brands in the $400-600’ish price range. Carmina, TLB Mallorca, Carlos Santos, Joseph Cheaney, Cobbler Union, etc...

I let my wife pick her favorite of the bunch. She went with J Fitzpatrick. (Completely blind pick, she doesn’t know the brands, and she wasn't looking at the prices)

Anyway, we put in some YouTube’s of J Fitzpatrick, specifically the Kirby Allison, to check out the brand a bit. In one of the videos Justin showed his Whittier (Oxford with the apron cut) and my wife said no the black cap toes, I was buying the Whittier MTO.
I guess the cap toes will wait until another day.

Excited to check these shoes out. A bit of a wait but quality takes time.

Hi folks, cross post from the carmina thread. Folks seemed interested in moving offers to buy/sell/trade to a separate thread so I set one up for all the awesome Spanish brands/brands made in Spain out there.

I just want to show my appreciation to this gorgeous pair of wholecut walnut museum calf shoes I recently bought in Leather Healer in Hong Kong.

I took half a size down from my usual UK5.5 due to my flat feet in this MGF lasts. This is the last pair of UK5 they got and it's ashame to know that they are not planning to restock any J.Fitzpatrick shoes.

Would Justin be so kind to offer UK5 in the RTW collection so people like me who have relatively small feet can get them without paying the MTO costs. Cheers.

@Stanacle The stores/retailers normally don't sell a lot of shoes in your size. Even with my UK 6.5 it can be hard. Most stock from UK7 and up. I'd think the Asian market is an exception to the rule, being that Asians in general have smaller feet. The best would be to order through MTO or you can check with Justin for the next restock if he can include your size with the rest of his orders. Send Justin a message on instagram or email and he'll help you out.

I'll definitely check with Justin for his next restock. I'm truly amazed by the quality of his shoes. I consider this pair a big step up from my Carlos Santos shoes.

I appreciate your kind words. I can always include in a restock so long as it is a RTW model. Also, we offer US6/US6.5 in our PreSales and GMTO's. You can always email me for future help too :)
