JL 6E on 7000 and 8000 last. 6.5 E on EG 82/202/888 last.

 

JL Camberley 6E fits me well. I have normal to narrow feet, so your mileage may vary.

Another last question, anybody have experience with the 8695 last? Can not find any info. It is with the Paul Smith collaboration

Very slightly longer and slightly narrower instep. I take the same in 7000 and 8695. YMMV

Thanks chogall but alas too late, it looks like somebody swooped them right up from under my nose. Curses :confused:

 

Don't hesitate on the Bespoke sale, they're going fast.

For future reference, I find the 8695 last to fit my narrower-than-medium, low-volume feet better than the 7000 and 8000 lasts.

Ordered the Penzance in dark grey cashmere suede in 8EE, they are on the 1105 last. I couldn't find much on the 1105 last so I'm hoping that they fit but at $300 plus shipping, it's well worth the chance.

Went from a 2007 Toyota Camry that was fully paid off and super cheap to maintain to the new C63S AMG.

Sounds like a pair of Saint Crispins or two some years down the road for maintenance...

Hi guys, what do you think are the best models from John Lobb that a newbie should look into? I am new to this shoes maker and my shoes have been AE so far so this will be major step up for me.

P/S: I've just looked into the end of line sale from Bespoke-England and found these models are available in my size: City II, Darby II, Darby III, Cavendish, Saunton, St. Crepin 2008, Illford, Truro, Fencote. Any of these are you guys favorite?

Becketts, Philip, or Chapel. If possible to get by request without an up-charge, then the Vale or Luffield.
