Issaquah - Dark Brown Suede
*Strings are not functional as a lace. Please do not pull them too tightly on the sides as a way to make the shoe fit more snug. This is not their intention and when doing so they can and will most likely break. If the tassels come undone (which they will as it is leather and not waxed cotton), gently re-tie back to the original bow without too much force. A tight knot, however, should be applied.*
The Issaquah string loafer is an ideal alternative to a classic Penny loafer or Tassel loafer. With the hand-sewn apron and on the elongated LPB last, this model will be a sleek addition to your shoe collection. Loafers are a great way to also show off your favorite color socks.
A Dark Brown Suede loafer is a must have in any man's wardrobe and will be that ideal shoe for those 'smart/casual' occasions. A great shoe to wear with a suit but also to wear after work with jeans or chinos.

J.FitzPatrick shoes have a very standard fit when compared to most other dress shoe brands. Our sizes are based on the UK standard where ‘E’ is the “medium” width being equivalent to a US ‘D’ width. If you have always been size UK10, then this is what you should expect to be in our footwear as well.
All five of our lasts were created on the same body, only changing the shape of the toe, thus ensuring a standard fit from heel to ball of foot, across all models. However, one must take into account that loafers will fit differently to oxfords and oxfords will fit differently to derbys, so while you may feel good in the fit of an oxford, the same size in a derby might feel loose due to the extra room in the instep created from the open lacing.This has nothing to do with size however, but more so the nature of the different models in footwear.
Understanding this will help you choose your size more accurately.
- Our insteps would be considered generous.
- All shoes with 6 eyelets will be even more generous in the instep.
- Any model in full suede will feel more generous to its leather counterpart.
- The boots have a forgiving instep in order for you to get into them easily.
- Any monkstrap made on the MGF or LPB will feel more generous to it's oxford counterpart.
- If you wear your oxfords very snug, then size up for your loafers. However, for most we recommend taking the same size as your oxfords.
The LPB last is no exception and would look good with any suit. Pair it with your heavy English flannel or your lightweight Italian wool and find yourself in elegant style with every step.
Our chisel lasts are our most generous in fit, so if you have a broad foot, these will work for you.
