Actually, for most of the sneakers and some of the casual shoes, the uppers are cut and assembled in England and then sent to Italy where the soles are installed.

The John Lobb sneakers are pretty neat.  I have a pair and soles look and feel like it will last for years.

On the contrary, I have a pair of beautiful JL boat shoes (R) that seem to be fragile for the use I normally give to my other boat shoes.  I will avoid any water and severe wear on them due to the excellent leather insole and the fine rubber outsole (not willing to send them for a resole in house). They are too delicated to take a shower with them on.:satisfied:

what do you think of JL belts? Some of them are made in France others in Italy. Should I assume since they look like Hermes that are the same belt with different buckles?

So I have both Hermes and JL belts. The JL belts with the logo insignia is indeed Made in France, by Hermes so it is very high quality. However the metal insignia piece is not interchangeable. This is because the hole size is slightly larger on the JL belt, so if you try putting a Hermes insignia on the strap, it will fall off easily.
