Love this shoe. I tried them on, and my high instep created a weird bubble with the monkstrap. Bummer.

I have a high instep and I found out the hard way that I have the same issue. Too bad, these are going back to Barneys!

So, John Lobb now produces neckwears as well?

Can somebody verify the authenticity of this item?

Well, not bespoke, but had to snap a shot of my City IIs at the French Laundry for my mother's birthday.

Here are pictures showing Jermyn II and Jermyn III side by side:



Jermyn II



Jermyn III


Leather Soul has this to say:
Quote:
Our latest John Lobb offering is the Jermyn III. We have been waiting patiently for this model since the Jermyn II was discontinued.

An updated buckle is the major change from the Jermyn II. The 7000 last works perfectly with this Prestige line model, keeping the shape classic and elegant.

But it is more than a different buckle, there are also changes to the design: on the Jermyn III, the strap takes off closer to the centre of the foot and is more curved than on the Jermyn II, the buckle is further away from the top-line. Also the last has changed from softly chiselled to round. Maybe that old shoe-nut jcusey is right and the Jermyn II did have some structurally problems which JL ironed out with the design of Jermyn III.

Quote:
It is well-known that Jermyn II is the most sublime shoe in existence, aesthetically speaking. The problem with it is that it's not the most structurally sound. The upper has a tendency to tear where the strap meets the vamp. That structural weakness is probably a significant part of the reason that JL Paris came out with the Vale. Unfortunately (for me) I think that the design works better on a smart round-toe last like the 7000 than it does on a square-toe last like the 8000.

Now the $100k question: What is Jermyn I like?
post #297 of 1450

   thanks bengal . . . . from what i was able to find the buckle seemed to be the major change. the instep 'strap' was throwing me off

   frankly, i think they got it right the first time or maybe ii in this case

 

   if i can locate one of these, the shoe fetish should be done for life or at least a good long while - whichever comes first

Of all the buckle shoes out there - I do find John Lobb have the most impressive and diverse range...

Still undecided whether I want to keep or not though, love green but shoes seem a bit too plain to me
