Havent they been using the St James 2 royal warrants on the insoles for some time already? I have seen JLs dating back decades with the 2 royal warrants on them. So how can one tell whether its recent? As for JL Paris, I have shoes with John Lobb Paris printed but I have also seen John Lobb Paris in a cursive writing. Just an update and does not mean different makes? BTW how about distinguishing Crockett & Jones normal and CJ by Dmitri Gomez?
