I think these are @jerrybrowne 's JLSJ
It is why I didn't pull the trigger with SJ. Their shoes are just too boxy and old fashioned.
Yes, they are a fairly recent pair.
I agree with this. They're very comfortable though, and I find myself wearing my JLSJ derbies alot, particularly on the weekends when I normally wear Belgians when I'm out. Since this is akin to wearing slippers, this says alot about their comfort!
Wow, that is a major difference in style. I wasn't aware both companieswhere so drastically different. But it makes sense that they would be different, and it certainly gives people a little more option in regards to which way you would like to go but still get something from John Lobb. I can see a certain attractiveness in the first shoe, but I usually gravitate to something closer to the bottom pair. I guess I'm more old fashioned or set in my ways.
That top pair is an outlier example of JLP's work. Here are some JLP bespoke samples.
More to my liking.Thanks for the further clarification and additional examples.
JLP is far more expensive but the difference is massive ...
Could you be more specific, please.
In terms of design, products, flair and skills...
Really glad I brought this up.
Ok, that's a start. Thanks
I guess I would have to see some more examples to get a better idea however.
Gaziano is also very good..
He made a few shoes a few years ago before his all RTW collection really took off big time.
I find a number of their shoes fairly attractive design wise but to this point I've only purchased one pair. I guess I find their Lasts to be a bit more aggressive than what I'm ready for at this point. I've been going with Edward Green for now and this seems to be more within my comfort zone. However I have seriously been considering getting the G&G Thorpe at some point in the future.
I was bespoke with him..
He loves the Italian style and his bespoke style is more creative than other English outlets.
