BTW, Lobb Paris bespoke always seems more refined than its English counterpart, to my eye. I find the shoes in th OP to be really beautiful - form, finish, color.
Self-correction: I just looked at your earlier post. The lettering looks gold-colored. My oversight. They are definitely the Parisian bespoke range.
Thanks a lot for the information.
It appears I was unclear in my statements:
1)\tI knew the shoes were from JLParis
2)\tI was wondering if the signature was only to be found in their bespoke models or if they shoes could have been from some sort of MTO operation they might have offered. The golden script I was alluding to is the golden print used in JLP RTW models.
3)\tIf you look at the bad quality picture I posted and take into account the difference in sizing it is clear that, apart from the burgundy patina on the tips, they are very similar in design, proportion and even leather to the pair owned by Manton. Mine also has the black soles and other assorted characteristics such as the stitching pattern at the heel.
