Haha I bet.  I like the JLP style little bit more.  I respect that the st. james street Lobbs are classic and resistant to change though.  But we're talking about $7500 starting for bespoke.

I know this is like cursing in church but I'm not all that fond of JLStJ either, not aesthetically at least. I have never commissioned them though, maybe they are fantastic IRL and on your feet. Truth be told I know very little of JLP Bespoke, never seen a pair IRL. But the RTW 7000 and 8695 last are pretty damn sweet.

Lobb St James is about 4500 pounds with shoe trees. That is roughly the same as Lobb Paris bespoke after the first pair where you pay a lasting fee.

Agree on Lobb St James. I visited the shop and didnt see anything I could imagine myself wearing.

We'll probably never see many examples of what they have done and yes the shop doesn't inspire much in this contemporary shoe environment (GG, JLP, EG).  The very few pictures of the custom boots out there are very classic IMO.  I have a pair of Jodhpur's and while they won't rock anyone's worlds from a looks perspective, I feel like they'll never age. Frankly they are just extremely high quality conservative refinement, I feel they still make their boots to be used for hunting, horse riding and long rough cobblestone walking, with little style peppered in. They are the most solid and form fitting shoe I have, over 10 years old, about 2 - 3 wears per month with some long NY commuting walks, a couple of rains and snow and shows hardly any wear other than some scratches put onto them. Original soles show less wear than my 12 month old EG's.

 

Having said that I wouldn't invest on this brand, with so many better options out there. I do wonder how long they'll stay in business with such competition and open cross border commerce across many bespoke makers.

I read somewhere that JLSJ get's a small percentage of all JLP shoe sales as part of using the JL name. That along might be enough to keep them afloat with any bespoke sales just extra icing on the cake.

Really "only" 1750? They charged me like 1900 for the klein (st crepin 1996). For that price i would be in.
The caveat is that i am an 8EE so they would need to allow that in this "GMTO"

Maybe it was for shoe trees also or that is just what they cost. Not sure. He just told me what they cost and I paid.
Anyways if they allow 8EE and you get 5 I am in. Do they all have to be the same color?

Damn $1750 is much cheaper than original retail of over$1900.
