    John Lobb Appreciation Thread

    I wasn't able to find one, so I thought I would start one. Although I don't get my first pair for another couple of days, I figured it still might be good to have a thread here anyway. The reason I'm starting one is because I know how helpful the other shoe threads like Edward Green, Gaziano...

    John Lobb (St. James's Street, London) vs. John Lobb (Hermès, Paris)

    I understand that, since 1976, these two brands have been separate operations going back to the same founder, Mr. John Lobb. But would somebody tell me how I could distinguish shoes from each manufacturer when I am looking at them outside any of their offical stores? Would they both say "John...

    John Lobb London

    Does anyone know what the pricing structure is for John Lobb London? Do they charge a "last fee" for them to make your first pair of shoes? Or is the price the same for your second pair as it is your first?

    Experience with JL Misty Calf?

    I'm interested in buying a pair of John Lobb 2010 St. Crepin double monks in brown misty calf. However, while trying them on in the store, I noticed that the creases developed highlights. Though I know this is standard on any calf, these seemed a bit more unusual - slightly more wrinkly and...
