That's a load of crap! Lobb advertises WAY more than Weston.

that's the spelling of the shoe manufacturer, and they are very good. The clothing one is Boglioli.

I recently bought my first pair of Gravati shoes, and I can vouch for their comfort. Even though they seemed tight, the leather is pretty supple and the shoes do feel great.

You think they are better than the Monsters? I got both of mine on ebay for less than $135 each.

No, I don't. The 5's are just an easier to obtain line, and were the first that came to mind.

Badly overpriced "fashion" jackets. My picks for quality and value: - Aero Leather of Scotland - Lost Worlds - Gibson and Barnes - Tony Perotti leather goods - Wigwam athletic socks - Roots clothing

matteo di rota make beautiful shirts, they are just very hard to find.
I think artioli is a very underated shoe maker, i agree a lot of their designs are a little retired in florida-ish, but i have a great pair of monks that are so soft and comfortable but also very hard wearing.
paul smith ties, are also very very hardwearing, stylish and tie a great knot.

barker black



i have 4 egs and c&js (all for rl) and 1 pair of barker blacks. i enjoy my barker blacks as much as the others and am going to commission a mto pair this summer. i will agree that they would be a much better value if they were priced in line with c&j and church's, etc. but this thread is about reputation. imo they are a well made shoe and their ashfield last is quite attractive.

i have never seen a pair of barker black's in person, and they are not sold in australia, but i am always on the lookout for some in my size. they are very cool shoes in my opinion.

I agree about the Seiko 5 line and the Monster being great watches for less than $150 online. The point I was trying to make was that I went to a local watch shop in the U.S., and a Seiko similar to one I purchased online for $150 is priced closer to $300. I think that if Seiko would sell their watches in U.S. shops for a price closer to what you can find online, they'd sell a lot better.

Sorry, I meant Boglioli, my mistake!

And yes, you are right, Lobb is a pretty big advertiser as well. I guess that leaves Edward Green and Alden as the (mostly) non-advertising sort.
