​Yes JLP bespoke shoes are entirely hand made in their Paris Mogador workshop. I remember an older report somewhere on the web showing their complete handmade process.

 

Maybe Lobb St James are known to make more traditional styles and they don't make any trial shoes for fitting but they are very flexible.

by the way, the man you see who was guiding them in the workshop is the famous bookmaker Patrice Rock when was younger. He used to work at JLP bespoke. The other famous bookmaker Anthony Delos used to work with him at JLP as last maker at that time. Patrice is now the head of Berluti workshop and Anthony is working with him again. What a great team.

I dunno if this helps but here is my sizing for 7000:
JL 7000: UK 11 EE (also called F sometimes)
GG MH71, DG70, GG06: UK 11.5 F
EG 82, 888: UK 11.5 F
Bonafè 74945, 946: UK 11.5
Carmina Rain: UK 11

I have very little experience with JL but there goes.

Some pictures from my last trip to London. I spent a day just hanging out at different shoe stores, talking with the people in the shops just to listen to their experiences. I will not lie to you, some of these places are not very inspirational and you realise that quite a few shoe stores would do a hell of a lot better if they just had some decent and knowledgable sales reps on the floor. But still, met some really nice people.

I don't think JL St. James is open for tours usually but we chatted a while with a very pleasant man (Emanuel) there and got the grand tour. Amazing!

it's been a desert in here....  No more love for JL? lol

 

 

But anyway does anyone find it normal to size up 1/2 on Chelsea boot? The Chelsea boot instep is very tight where 1/2 size up is snug and nice.

I'm waiting for my Archer to come in from Paris. I purchased back in July when I was on vacation. Should be some time in October.

Anyone doing anything for the By Request event going on? I got a flyer in the mail about it from the Miami store and the NYC store but nothing from the Houston store.

I have Klein coming in theoretically beginning of October, ordered back in July.

Recently also ordered the new Hinton oxford boot in the "water resistant" plum museum calf at the By Request event from SCP beginning of Sep (not that it matters bc they will usually wave the mto fee year around).

I got an email from the houston store. Their bu request was sep 12-18th.

I guess the stores don't like mailing the flyers to their local (although the closest store for Boston is in NYC) customers.
