John Lobb Appreciation Thread - Page 21

post #301 of 1044
Am I the only one having trouble finding a John Lobb model I like? I'm trying, because the 7000 last fits me very well and I find their leathers and craftsmanship fantastic, but I just can't find any model I like as much as the more classic EG models, for example. Please help me find a classic model quarter brogue oxford in the Prestige line (or which I can do MTO), similar to EG Canterbury or Asquith. The Philip II brogueing is not quite to my taste, it feels odd for some reason.

The Saunton http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2012/12/04/john-lobb-saunton-in-dark-brown-misty-lsw/ is a semi-brogue on the 7000 last, but I know you're looking for a quarter brogue prestige line

As much as I love my JL's, I've yet to see a quarter brogue captoe I like. Blasphemy on this thread, but the G&G St. James II is my ideal for a quarter brogue.

Though an outdated model and not in the 7000 last, John Lobb actually had a quarter brogue model named, Adelaide.
I would say, it's very similar to the EG's Canterbury but a bit shorter-lasted, so to speak. sly.gif

Thanks guys! Both look very nice. Will contact John Lobb and see if I can MTO any of these.

Well done, it's a lovely captoe...

Rare score, I don't remember ever seeing a wide fitting JL on any of the usual online suspects

Good job - that's good value for John Lobb...their reject prices in the factory shop are higher.

+1. Nice score.

All, I bought the Brentwood monkstrap in New Gold (I think) Misty Calf from Barneys on their final markdown. I think it's a beautiful shoe.

http://www.barneys.com/John-Lobb-Brentwood/501916008,default,pd.html

I don't think it quite fits. It's a size UK 7E/US 8D. If anyone wants it, let me know. I'll sell at my cost ($519+taxes, shipping, paypal fees). If no one wants it, I'll send back to store. In great condition vs the shoes still left at Barneys.

So, now JL manufactures clothing- in this case, jeans- as well?
