J.FitzPatrick EU Site Now Live!
It has been a long time coming!
The opportunity to ship directly from Spain is now realizable thanks to the new J.FitzPatrick EU site and distribution. A thank you to all of our clients in Europe who have been waiting for this, and to the new potential clients that have been wanting to try out the J.FitzPatrick brand but have not for fear of a potential return shipment to the US. Not to mention the ability to now just pay VAT and not have to fuss with those inflated import duties and fees!
As starting a J.FitzPatrick EU offshoot of our company is essentially doubling its size, we are doing this in an incremental way, starting of course with PreOrders.
As we have some stock already at the factory ready to ship and some that will need to be ordered, we have broken down the PreOrder scenario by category of Shipping Status.
Please read below to understand it all
New SS2023 Models
All of our SS2023 stock was intentionally held at the factory so that all of you in Europe had a chance to order it without having to import it from the US.
As I want to personally oversee the shipment of each pair, we will hold a PreOrder on all of these models across our 3 lines (JF, J.Fitz, and Sneakers) from today until the 16th of July.
On the 17th, I will be at the factory and we will start to box up and ship out all of the SS2023 model orders.
As these shoes are essentially ready, we are offering a 10% discount to wait around 4 weeks for them.
After that preorder period, all of the leftover stock will be shipped to the US and orders will have to be done on the US site to get the pair immediately.
Core Models Across All Lines
The reality is that even though we are a small brand, we have a good amount of SKUs, and buying the stock for them results in a large bulk payment. As we are not cash rich to be able to double our size overnight, we are starting gorilla style with a PreOrder to later buy a larger order and fund our brand organically as we have always done.
Therefore, for all of our Core Models across all of our lines, we are holding a PreOrder on them by which we will offer you a 20% discount to place your order.
After the order period, we will amass the orders and place a larger order to arrive in Winter. Therefore, your PreOrder purchase will arrive in Winter.
By supporting this PreOrder, you will be helping fund our first stock collection to get the EU site off the ground and running!
MTOs will remain as is. You can now order them as usual from our EU site, with VAT included in the price, and the typical time period of 4-5 months for completion.
We offer a 10% discount (automatically applied) to pay 100% upfront or you can always order 50/50 with a direct invoice by emailing us at [email protected]
