Justin, will the MTO program have wider widths available or is it just a model on a different last?
Unfortunately in the beginning it will only be for changing the last, leather, sole, and small details like eyelets,stitching color, gimping versus no gimping, medallion or sans etc.
I have yet to make a size run of lasts in other widths and test them, therefore it would not only be risky but also costly to simply make one last. The tooling costs decrease significantly when making size runs. As I grow (and if I see the MTO program grow) then I will most likely just buy sets of lasts in different widths to have available for the MTO program in the future.
I am sorry that this is probably not what you wanted to hear. Thanks for your interest though, I do appreciate it.

They are actually RTW. The model is the Fauntleroy in Dark Brown Suede
Interesting. Is it just me or do these shoes and a few of the shoes posted above have a wider than normal side on the middle-outside of each shoe? Almost like a little bump half way between pinky toe and heel. Is that the last style?
I though I would share with you all my forest green Wallingford from J. Fitzpatrick. And I agree that Justin is a great guy. I enjoy his post which for me is very informative and useful. The shoe snop shoe care produts are very good IMHO
In case anyone finds this helpful, Justin Jeffers from The Fine Young Gentleman recently posted a review of his J.Fitzpatrick dress boots, linked here.
The boots look great and I'm very tempted to save up and buy a pair.
For those of you who might be curious to know a bit more about the brand and what separates us from the rest, we have just created a page on our website called "Why Choose J.FitzPatrick?" which provides a bit more insight into the shoes. Please see the link below:
Tallying up all of your posts now, it would clearly appear that your desire is to attempt to take me down. Fair enough. You don't like me or my shoes for some reason. No big deal, it doesn't bother me at all...
I will always remember the phrase, "bad publicity is better than no publicity"..
As clever as you think that you are, you must forget this idea. That makes me happy in reality as while you think that you are tarnishing my reputation/name, whatever, in fact you are keeping me on the front page of the Classis Menswear Forum on SF, ensuring that my thread gets viewed. Now there are far more positive than negative on this thread so each person that comes hopefully sees that and your little snide remarks thus help me in the long run.(in fact the negative only comes from 2 people, both of which have never worn the shoes).. So thank you for that. I appreciate the fact that you keep coming back, again and again and again.....
Enjoy the rest of your day
Sorry, I think you already have my so called "negative" posts that exposed your taking freebies for write ups deleted?
why would I delete that but not everything else??? Think about it clever guy
I tell my readers that I don't buy the shoes that brands OFFER me to review...it's no secret... the only shoe that I ever asked for is the Meermin because my readers wanted me to review one. Why would I buy it when I have my own brand?? It makes no sense. And I don't have it anymore, don't need it....so why would I ask for freebies for shoes I have no intention of keeping? Not logical is it?
You will want to take it up with the moderators on why they must have deleted your comment...none of your silly posts bother me as I have stated before. They all make me laugh because clearly you are so worried about me and my brand that you feel the need to constantly bad mouth it.... i feel sorry that you are clearly so unfulfilled that you feel the need to do this... go out and enjoy the world
Where does your animosity and hatred towards Justin and his shoes come from? - Why do you have to use every opportunity to praise Grenson/Tim Little shoes?
It can't be just about shoes, there must be some hidden agenda on your part. Maybe you are kind enough to enlighten us.
Otherwise we might presume you are Mr Tim Little.
When was the last time I praised Grenson/Tim Little? I doubt very much TL the man would care about JF's shoes.
Your last plug was four months ago (to be precise).
Tell us, what is it about Grenson/Tim Little shoes that makes them the 'measure of all things' for you?
