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.

ooo... which color did you get?

I visit Houston a few times a year bc my parents live there (grew up there) so i have been to that store a couple of times over this last year. I signed up for their mailing list.
For scp i ended up buying stuff from there after purchasing on the website (websiye orders fulfill from there)

Hello all - I live in the US. Hawaii to be exact. I've always wanted to get a pair of John Lobb shoes, and if it's going to be my only pair, it might as well be the Phillip II.

We have a well known retailer here, Leather Soul, who carries them, but I feel that with the very favorable exchange rate, there should be a way to get them from the UK and take advantage of the dollar vs sterling pound. I've bought Edward Greens and Crockett and Jones direct from the UK to take advantage of the exchange rate.

Can anyone recommend a retailer in the UK to buy a pair priced in pounds? I can only find John Lobb direct and they are priced in dollars.

Thanks for any recommendations

Harrods.com have them in at £1,065. They should be able to ship them to the US.

Thanks for the guidance. As luck would have it, they don't have my size. I guess I just have to be patient. Brexit will probably keep the pound low for awhile...

Just got these Jodhpur II with October rubber soles at an amazing price from Nick at Bespoke England!



Also what are these names on the stickers at the soles? Are they MTO clients?

post #4344 of 4399
It seems like Nick's prices went up by over 100 quid seemingly overnight. If I had known that was gonna happen, I would have pulled the trigger on two pairs that I had been waffling on for weeks. frown.gif

Lovely jods though!!

Not sure what those names are for but I usually see those type of stickers on the trunk show display shoes.

@Tony Yang I believe all of the stuff offered on that site is factory seconds and rejects so that might have something to do with it? I believe Mr. Porter has the same style, might be a reject from them.

That's what I was thinking! Me. Porter and another store has the same style. Though wierdly enough each shoe has a differant name.

Also I've bought a few shoes and accessories from Nick, some with minor imperfections. These shoes oddly enough were spotless, unused soles, welts all good, uppers are all good, seams all good, can't see any imperfection to my eyes smile.gif

As long as you're happy!

@Tony Yang Those are samples that usually marketing directors/ other higher ranking employees are getting before the season .. Nothing wrong with them, I would actually be more confident owning those than a random store pair .. 

At this point I don't think it's worth purchasing a rejected pair considering the stratospheric prices unless it's the makeup you are a 100% after. The price gap is so close to the new pair that it's always better to just order one from the store, unless it's some MTO that requires a surcharge .. 

Not sure how the John Lobb is struggling with the raising competition considering the new design approach, but could be I've lost perspective browsing the Styleforum and am unaware the 99% of the buyers out there don't have a clue what they are purchasing .. I have noticed that people with a lot of money are usually those buying pretty crappy items when it comes to clothing/shoes .. A lot of them still believe the Hugo Boss and Armani are top choices for suits .. Could be the John Lobb is playing a on a brand card pretty well and that the new styles are actually made for those tasteless East European buyers with a lot of cash.
