Leather Soul has the paul smith collabs on sale
This is so tempting...
Love this shoe. I tried them on, and my high instep created a weird bubble with the monkstrap. Bummer.
I have a high instep and I found out the hard way that I have the same issue. Too bad, these are going back to Barneys!
So, John Lobb now produces neckwears as well?
Can somebody verify the authenticity of this item?
Well, not bespoke, but had to snap a shot of my City IIs at the French Laundry for my mother's birthday.
can anyone tell me the difference(s) between Jermyn II & III monks ?
Here are pictures showing Jermyn II and Jermyn III side by side:
Leather Soul has this to say:
But it is more than a different buckle, there are also changes to the design: on the Jermyn III, the strap takes off closer to the centre of the foot and is more curved than on the Jermyn II, the buckle is further away from the top-line. Also the last has changed from softly chiselled to round. Maybe that old shoe-nut jcusey is right and the Jermyn II did have some structurally problems which JL ironed out with the design of Jermyn III.
Now the $100k question: What is Jermyn I like?
thanks bengal . . . . from what i was able to find the buckle seemed to be the major change. the instep 'strap' was throwing me off
frankly, i think they got it right the first time or maybe ii in this case
if i can locate one of these, the shoe fetish should be done for life or at least a good long while - whichever comes first
Quote:Of all the buckle shoes out there - I do find John Lobb have the most impressive and diverse range...
the Jermyn is sleek, clean & to the point isn't it
Still undecided whether I want to keep or not though, love green but shoes seem a bit too plain to me
