Hawthorne - Dark Brown Museum Calf
Designed in Britain the Butterfly Loafer has really come to fruition over the past decade. Its unique design and silhouette have always been popular in British shoemaking. Most commonly found with a brogued apron but we decided to add our JF twist and include a hand-stitched apron.
A great alternative to a traditional Penny Loafer that will work with numerous outfits. The DB Museum Calf model is a perfect shade for formal attire with suits however works well paired with chinos or dark denim for a more casual style.
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

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 up to 14 days. Custom patinas will increase delivery time by up to 28 days.

Great service, great prices and great shoes in all sorts of wonderful options. What's not to like?
The Hawthorne is my 2nd favorite J.Fitzpatrick shoe in terms of design and comfort (after the Roosevelt). The patina and overall aesthetic are very pleasing to the eye and it feels exceedingly comfortable right out the gate (minimal break-in time). Like all J.Fitzpatrick offerings, the quality-for-money ratio is exceptional.
Love the shoes, unique styling. Doesn’t seem to want to retain new customers. Need to buy pair of boots and wingtips…. Will give my money to competition.
It's always impressive when people like you leave a bad review citing customer service when we usually get 5-stars as an average and for good reason. Let's tell the real story Scott. You bought a pair of loafers which we were grateful for. You then wrote that you forgot to purchase shoe trees. You asked us to waive the $10 shipping to which we said that we would not do so and that the shipping fee needs to be paid. There was no real justification to waive it. Just because you ask us to do so citing that we should because you forgot to add them and we should want to retain you as a customer does not give you the right to not pay the actual shipping cost. So you basically soft threaten us and then when we stand our ground, you hard threaten us by saying you will return the shoes all because we would not waive the $10 for you on a pair of shoe trees. Good customer service is not defined by simply doing anything and everything a customer asks. There are boundaries. Unfortunately the Amazon model has destroyed this. Thanks for the 3-Star Review, I hope you feel proud of that.
