...but Lobb RTW is not the same company as Lobb Ltd., and neither made the very first buckled shoes. The archetypes were centuries-old pairs worn by monks during the Middle Ages. June Swann's Shoes is the best damn shoe history book I've found, most of the info is golden.

Lobb ltd who sold their paris shop to Hemes which became JLP did however make the first dubmonks, did they not? As you mentioned the William I assumed you were talking about dubmonks and not buckled shoes in general.
Just saying the William is not a good example of a generic shoe that became iconic as its a descendant of the first of its kind, unlike the Dover.

-edit-
Love your website btw. The article on Tuczek is very informative. A good friend of mine works for Lobb and had showed me some vintage Tuczek shoes the other day, amazing workmanship. I have just ordered Swann's shoes, looking forward to receiving it.

Crat, my thanks. It's all about giving something back to the community. The Tuczek post would have been much longer if I'd only found more bits online, but I'm sure you can find great info from English shoemakers of repute.
