Lobb ltd who sold their paris shop to Hemes which became JLP did however make the first dubmonks, did they not? As you mentioned the William I assumed you were talking about dubmonks and not buckled shoes in general. Just saying the William is not a good example of a generic shoe that became iconic as its a descendant of the first of its kind, unlike the Dover. -edit- Love your website btw. The article on Tuczek is very informative. A good friend of mine works for Lobb...
What happened to In Stitches btw?
No, these were waxed (Carnauba) and not lacquered. HG still is and BG is now unfinished.
The difference is that Lobb (Ltd). did actually make the first ever double monk. The model was named after the founder's son, William.
But am I not entitled to an opinion? I find the tie heinous. On itself that is. Genius in this combination however. Its a bit like cooking; some ingredients are horrible on their own but create a great result when combined.
If the tie would have matched more (Brown/navy shantung/grenadine) it would have been something styled from a catalogue. I don't like fits that lack personality; this heinous tie gives the outfit personality. Like.
When fishing, wear outerwear.
