I can tell all of your guys, because i studied shoemaking from the bottom up, and was working 3 years in Japan, Tokyo, this guys overthere have the sense and sensibility to create one of the finest shoes which i saw ever. I made an apperenticeship at Guild of Craft, too I don't wanna be selfish, and ignorant, but i saw shoes from Lobb which look like a trunk compete with the work who does all my Japanese friends!!! So, If somebody whant' s to know more about shoes from Japan, don't hesitate to contact me. Otsukaresamadeshta Viktor
Welcome Victor, I see you are a longtime lurker, hope to have you posting! Think you need to post some pictures of your shoes! As for your reference to Lobb, i iknow there is a Japanes brand Lobb's" that is low end. There is also John Lobb Paris with two RTW lines as well as a bespoke option and there is John Lobb LTD in London who only do bespoke. I think you will find simmilar qualities NOT STYLE in a bespoke option from JLP & JL LTD as in Saino, Koji Suki, Il Micio, Gaziano&Girling, Cleverly, Foster, Peron& Peron, Stefano Bemer etc. But these are all handmade to YOUR last and specifications. Not to be confused with RTW. Checked out reutch but al I saw was information about insoles, no complete shoes...
