JL Trees, but are the shoes even from John Lobb?  Never seen that in the catalogue...

Unlikely...

Really nice shoes!



Worn a few times! Ex left all of his things and I'm selling it ALL



I DO NOT SHIP INTERNATIONAL

She likely sees the shoe trees and thinks those are Lobbs. Buyer is going to be in for a surprise.

Hi everyone,

First, I would like to say hello, because it's my first post on this forum :)

 

Secondly I have a favor to ask.


Recently I've started to work at the shoes store, and I've found myself to be interested in purchasing a pair of the Loake shoes. For example I like this model: http://www.barnetsshoes.co.uk/loake-200ch-mens-gents-brown-polished-leather-shoe.ir?cName=gents-loake

I was hoping to receive any comments on this brand. Is it worth the money you spend on it? I've noticed that this store has pretty good prices when comparing it to other shops.

Thanks in advance for the help :)

I wouldn't be so sure. JL like EG have made some weird stuff in the past. There were some designs going for cheap about 1-200 in the sales a year or two ago

They're probably from Aldo...

Ah yes. They are similar to Westons, where the sizing can range from "pretty darned big" to "freaking giant".

Weird stuff ok, but also blake stitched?

I don't see any stitching on the welt area.

Great purchase... and for around $350 shipped, you did outstanding. Please post pics when they arrive. I predict you will be very happy.

Well, there's JL that's made in France and in Italy. Don't see why sleek loafers couldn't be blake/rapid just because of their JL brand on it (outsourced most likely).

I know that, but they aren't loafers.

btw, just curiosity...

Oh well. Would have kopped if it included the hanger.
