Thanks and yes I lucked out, especially to find something in as large of a size as mine plus a narrow width.

Are these pairs from the same dead customer of the JL St James?

No they actually aren't. This pair is much more narrow than the JL St James. Crazy isn't it?

Fine pair of shoes sir.

 

What colour are you using for cream polish (if using)?

I spoke with JL Paris about the pair and they advised me on getting this amazing pair because it was brand new and was almost spot on to my measurements. 

 

What are your thoughts?

Looks to be a dead-set bargain!

I haven't started yet. I may darken just a little.

Like these but  they fit very generous, I may have to move them...

New shoes with lace fully closed and some extra space across the vamp.

Maybe adding sock liners will help. Or insoles.

And I have a high instep!

Here's an article about the brand image redesign done by Practice for Everyday Life in 2014 for anyone whose interested.

 

“The previous branding was quite old fashioned and not very distinct from other footwear brands despite its legacy,” adds APFEL’s Emma Thomas.

 

I guess the bright John Lobb yellow is too old fashioned and not distinct enough.

Thanks for sharing, very interesting read. I was curious and tried the website again. Everything looks luxurious except for... the shoes they are trying to sell. Apart from the old classic ones, it is really hard to feel the new design

I just can not see how they are being respectful to the brands history by producing plimsoles! One can easily see the difference between JL St James ( What I call the real LOBB) and the shop on Jermyn street.

Even these were good times for me shopping at JL but these days the shoes are so different!
