Gorgeous @Farhad19620, I first knew about museum calf through JL and still now, I haven't seen anyone else does it better than JL - Absolutely stunning

It was high time to take my Lobb St Crepin 2012 for a spin around the block. Thanks @peppercorn78 for reminding me!

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

I almost throw away the current box!!.  Oh well, I should keep it then.

The "JOHN LOBB" typeface looks dreadful - something a recent university graduate would come up with.

^ Indeed :) complaining about others complaining about JL boxes is a very advanced first world problem.

I think its less about the boxes but more about the new brand image and updated designs.

100% correct, they can sell plimsoles in any colour boxes, personally I think pink would have been a better option! LOL

I read an article about twenty years ago or maybe more in one of the newspapers and it stated " These are the shoes you may want to be buried in and take to the grave" I agreed then but surely not anymore.

They might as well put red bottoms and spikes on their new make ups.

RIP luffield

This thread should be renamed Pre Gerbase JL Appreciation Thread smile.gif.

There doesn't seem to be any appreciation at present.

Need help making a decision on my Chapels that I'm going to order.

 

Do I go Plum Museum or Dark Brown Museum?

post #3735 of 4690
Dark brown museum. It's a classic Chapel look.
