Sunnyside - Gold Museum Calf
The adelaide oxford is one of the most popular models considered an acceptable stand-in for the classic business captoe. And quite so, as it has arguably even more elegant lines to it! Here is our take on a classic--we hope it's to your liking!
When adding a custom patina to your order, please specify in your cart checkout notes what color and style of patina you would like--whether it's something we've done before, or something totally new! For patina prices and existing color references, please visit our patina service information page.
Please note that leather is an organic material which will experience natural variations in color. We strive for consistency during production, and do our best to accurately represent each style’s color under natural light, but minor variations may nevertheless occur. If you would like to preview photos of the specific pair you would be receiving, please let us know via email at: email@example.com

The NGT is our smart-round last. Its slender silhouette and elongated toe box result in a classic, elegant style.
The NGT is one our more refined fitting lasts, and is therefore more suited for narrow to medium width feet:
- Narrower/shallower forefoot
- Less voluminous (but not “low”) instep
- Hugging arch area
- Elongated shape
- Not good for wide feet
- Fits more generously on boots than on shoes
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
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.
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.

This last fits my foot perfectly (slightly more narrow than a traditional D width in my opinion), so I had to try this shoe. I was not disappointed. Not only is the fit perfect, but wow... these shoes are beautiful. The narrow, rounded but refined toe looks so elegant, and the subtle chamfer in the heel block (the base / bottom is slightly more narrow than the top of the block, so the heel "tapers in" towards the bottom) creates a distinguished, graceful profile. I cannot stress enough - the heel block shaping really sets the aesthetic of this shoe apart. The finish on the shoes is excellent.
The quality and style is just what I want in a pair of shoes. Plus wearing it the first time already feels comfortable. A must have in every man's shoe collection.
