    How can you argue with that logic?
    My argument. Save some money cuz 500 for jeans is ridiculous and go do some squats lol

    i used to hate tassel loafers, then i thifted some.

    boat shoes, also, i hated.

    then i realized how squishy and comfortable they were.

    OH, that's a good one. I still haven't come around on tassel loafers. But given time, who knows?

    Really? These sleek updates on the tassel loafer, by jfitzpatrick, are my new favorite shoes. I love them.

    They look great. I've been tempted by J. Fitzpatrick's shoes for a bit. How's the sizing?

    I'm usually a 12.5 US, which is hard to find, so I usually size down to 12, which is often a bit snug across the balls of my toes (damn bunions), so I stretch them. Sometimes I size up to a 13, depending.

    I purchased an 11 UK in these. I would say that on this last, the size is about between a 12 and 12.5 US. The left one is just a little snug on my bunion, but not so bad I want to stretch it.

    I also have an 11 UK in a Herring Premier monk strap shoe, and it's just a tad wider than this shoe--pretty much a perfect fit for me.

    I love these jfitzpatrick shoes. I am planning on at least my next two purchases to be from him. But I need to save up a bit first.

    I used to have a deeply-visceral reaction against moc toe shoes. But I bought a pair of Indy boots last year and it's not so bad. I still don't wear boat shoes or anything with such a pronounced stitch, yet.
