They're Lobbs - I love them.....but I don't like the last on them.

Looks like the 8896 Last, fat cousin of the 7000 last.

Are you sure? It really seems like 7000 last to me. They are the prestige line right?

Didn't say that. I wrote if I would go for tassel i'd rather take GG (Nice) instead of that. Just a personal taste.

Interesting. The new shoe concession at Gieves & Hawkes has a model exactly so. Se article below.

It's a shame, these snipers are having a dig at Justin collection of shoes.

 

I find them refreshing - the boots are very nice.

I like none of JF's shoe designs; they are way out there at borderline unworldly gaudy and makes JL RTW digressions, Aubercy, or Corthay look conservative.

I have been to G&H and seen the collection first hand and the Balmoral boots are on my hit list. I find the design reminiscence of Corthayism around the toe....I think it's more than borderline...then again life great living on the edge....

At least they are by far the best 'designer' shoes, better than Jimmy Choo and the like, and at reasonable price.

He is not competing with John Lobb, Corthay or Aubercy, he is competing with D&G, Choo, Gucci and the other designer brands.

Does anyone know how the JL Buckinghams fit? What is the US equivalent to 8.5E UK size? The last is the 4099 last. Getting ready to buy one on EBay and need to know about fit. Also, how do these JK Buckingham tassel loafers compare to Alden Tassels?

Have you re-soled these in that time? Curious of the wear and tear.

No re-sole required so far. Having been used primarily as a spring/summer shoe, they have not been exposed to much rain. They have trodden on some gravel paths though, so pretty pleased with them holding up so well.

Even wearing it so sparingly it is holding up really well.

Any other pics of the shoes in different angles?
