    I agree to most of it.

    One of the most important things is to try the different lasts to see which of them suits you more if we are talking RTW.

    John Lobb Prestige and G&G RTW for me are in line in terms of quality. My only concern with G&G is that the sole wears out pretty quickly but they are so great that I don't care.

    G&G lasts and styles are more modern and John Lobb more classic. I prefer the latter for a wedding for example and G&G for everyday use.

    Of course you have some G&G that are conservative:

    And some modern Lobbs:

    So both of them are cool, so you should choose taking into account the model you like, not the brand.

    All depends on your foot and which lasts fit you best. JL has access to more leather than G&G.

    G&G have more aggressive designs while JL tends to have designs that are far better balanced, IMO. For classic styles, it all really depends; i.e., G&G Oxford > JL City but JL Williams > all G&G monkstraps.

    Construction wise, its all gemmed.

    Some great Deco's just collected for a client today. Joyce in Chestnut Antique Alligator & the same style in Dark Brown Antique Alligator, both pairs finished by Tony Gaziano to the clients requested colours.

    Nik!! Man it is good to see you back again!


    Can I assume your "busy" weekend is over and that it is back to selling those G&G beauties in earnest again?

    I will PM to discuss details if you don't mind Nik, hopefully we can finalize an order just as soon as you have attended to that client who bought the crocodile farm!
