FYGblog Found Elsewhere

Dear Readers,

Over the past few weeks both content from The Fine Young Gentleman as well as an interview of myself has been posted on outlets aside from this here blog.  First, a few weeks ago an interview of myself by Eric Scriberras of MentorMe Podcast was posted.  The discussion focuses primarily on my journey to start Jay Butler and even The Fine Young Gentleman.  Which all started during my time as an auditor at Deloitte.  The interview lasts for roughly 45 minutes so I will not be offended if you do not listen to it.  But, if you are at all interested in starting your own thing, it could be worth your while.  If any of you have any questions about starting a blog or company or leaving a secure career, feel free to ask questions in the comments section.  We can start a discussion right here on FYG.

Second, I was recently asked by Forbes of Czechoslovakia if they could use my chart on matching shoe color with trouser color, I thought it was a cool idea so I obliged.  If any of you can read or understand Czech it may prove to be a nice read.

We will be back to our regularly scheduled programming of sometimes snarky style advice and reviews next time, stay tuned.

  1. Hi, like your blog. Read the article on forbes which brought me here and just FYI Czechoslovakia doesn’t exist exist anymore, it’s Czech republic ;). We separated in 1993 :).

  2. Hey Justin, it was interesting to hear the story of your new startup. I know where you are coming from with your comment about a step up from boat shoes. I have my eye on a pair of Cromwell’s–I think you nailed it with the design.

    I’m being 100% serious when I say this: you reminded me a bit of what this guy is doing.


    I would also recommend checking out what Thursday Boot Co. is doing.

    Good luck I’m rooting for you.

  3. Nice blog to to see about different design of casual shoes. it gives me some innovative design to make shoes attractive. we have large new arrival of shoes and sandals. our Shoes Toronto company in Canada.
