Penny loafers are an undeniable classic, and our Washington model follows that long tradition. With our smart chisel last, this is your no-nonsense pair for looking great on your more casual days, with the black suede lending a smart and textured look to your outfit.

On our Street Walker Rubber Sole, our Washingtons are as hardy as they are elegant, keeping you looking equally good in the office and on a rainy afternoon out. Every man needs a black penny loafer, so if you're late in the game, this pair is your fix!

    The Saint Helens last is the chisel last of our JF line. It is slightly elongated, but less so than our J. FitzPatrick line chisel lasts; it ultimately fits very true to size with a medium instep and a cut that closely follows the contours of the foot.  We recommend keeping your standard size with the Saint Helens last.

    The Saint Helens is a classic medium-fitting last:
    -Medium forefoot (neither too wide nor too narrow)
    -Medium instep, not as generous as our J.FitzPatrick Line lasts
    -Good for medium width feet
    -Slightly elongated last, yet very shaped to foot length/profile

    Keep the same size in what you wear from:
    -Most Crockett & Jones classic fitting lasts
    -Carmina lasts (except Simpson)
    -Cheaney
    -Church's
    -Most benchgrade English brands

    J.FitzPatrick shoes have a broad set of fit options, from true to size, on the slim side to more wide. It will be important to make sure you read about the specific last that you are looking to purchase.

    One thing to note across the board is that our loafers have been cut on the snug side, compared to the rest of the models. We did this so that you do not need to 'size down' when going for a loafer, rather recommending you stick to your oxford size (**read exception below)

    Here are a few general rules

    • 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 put them on easily
    • Any monkstrap made on the MGF or LPB will feel more generous to its 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

    SAMPLE SALE SHIPPING POLICY:

    For sample sale pairs, US shipping is a flat rate of $10 for orders over $200, or a flat rate of $20 for orders under $200. International shipping of sample pairs is a flat fee based on shipping destination.

    These higher rates reflect the fact that we normally subsidize shipping to each client's destination, but sample sale shoes are discounted too heavily to allow us to take that same price hit; thank you for your understanding on this matter.

    International shipping rates for sample sale pairs are flat rates of:

    Africa: $90
    Asia: $65
    Australia / Singapore: $70
    Canada: $30
    Western Europe: $65
    Eastern Europe: $80
    Central / South America: $55
    Mexico: $50
    Other Regions: $100

    Our standard shipping policy for non-sample sale pairs is as follows:

    UNITED STATES:

    All orders above $200 shipped within the United States include free shipping via UPS ground shipping. Should you require a faster shipment via USPS or UPS, additional fees will apply.

    The USPS 2-day priority mail service used within the US aims to arrive within 2-3 working days depending on location. This is not a guarantee, however. Your tracking number provided will keep you up to date with your parcel. 

    We look to ship out all purchases 1-2 working days after the time of purchase (weekends not included). During "Sale" periods we aim to ship between 2 -4 days after the time of purchase as the increase in orders affects our ability to be any quicker. Add-ons involving changes to your shoes (toe taps, rubber sole bottoms) will increase delivery time by 7-14 days. Custom patinas will increase delivery time by 14 days.



    INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

    All International Orders are shipped from NYC using DHL, UPS or USPS. We will use the service that offers us the best rate. If you prefer one over the other and the one that you prefer is significantly more expensive then we will ask that you pay the difference between the best rate and the rate your preferred courier offers.

    If you prefer another courier, such as UPS, USPS or FedEx and wish to pay the difference (if the one you want is more than the rate we pay to DHL), please indicate this in the notes section of your order. Any failure to do so, will result us using the DHL service. Before sending your parcel, we will send an invoice to cover the difference in pricing (should there by any).

    Any and all import duties imposed by your local custom's officials on your parcel will be the responsibility of the customer to pay for. We do not control this and will not be held responsible for any surprises in charges as we do not impose them. Your government does. We declare the parcel at the value paid. We do no under-declare parcel values. Please do not ask us to do so.

    Please note, if you reject your order for not wanting to pay the custom's import taxation, we will be charged a fee for the return shipping. This fee will come out of your refund as we will are not liable for this charge due to your error in ordering. 

    For Remote Labeled Areas a surcharge of the price difference between what we normally pay and what they are quoting will be required to make shipment.

    We look to ship out all purchases 1-2 working days after the time of purchase (weekends not included). During "Sale" periods we aim to ship between 2 -4 days after the time of purchase as the increase in orders affects our ability to be any quicker.

    For a general guide on shipping cost, please refer to our shipping chart below.

    We ensure each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to you. We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes on to the customer. If you are not the receiver of your purchase (for example a gift order) then the person who signs for the package confirms receipt and is accountable for the package.

    Orders shipped with different billing/shipping addresses will be scrutinized by our Anti-Fraud system. Of course we understand if one wants to ship to their work address. And we reserve the right to cancel any order that has been deemed fraudulent by our system.

    Let’s see Paul Allen’s black suede loafers

    I’ve recently bought the Washingtons in black suede and delighted with them. They fit me like a glove without any blisters or other issues (like visiting your side of the family instead of your partner’s). Never thought black suede can be used for both casual and business settings (had several compliments, including the lines of “you promised me you wouldn’t buy another pair”). Definitely be coming back soon!

    Black Suede makes a statement in and of themselves. Black Suede from Justin Fitzpatrick just catapults you into another dimension of style!

    Excellent Shoe

    Very comfortable and well made shoe. Stitching was perfect and looking at the quality of the shoe vs my Meermin loafers, I'd have to say these are hands down a better shoe.
