    Am I the only one having trouble finding a John Lobb model I like? I'm trying, because the 7000 last fits me very well and I find their leathers and craftsmanship fantastic, but I just can't find any model I like as much as the more classic EG models, for example. Please help me find a classic model quarter brogue oxford in the Prestige line (or which I can do MTO), similar to EG Canterbury or Asquith. The Philip II brogueing is not quite to my taste, it feels odd for some reason.

    The Saunton http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2012/12/04/john-lobb-saunton-in-dark-brown-misty-lsw/ is a semi-brogue on the 7000 last, but I know you're looking for a quarter brogue prestige line

    As much as I love my JL's, I've yet to see a quarter brogue captoe I like. Blasphemy on this thread, but the G&G St. James II is my ideal for a quarter brogue.

    Though an outdated model and not in the 7000 last, John Lobb actually had a quarter brogue model named, Adelaide.
    I would say, it's very similar to the EG's Canterbury but a bit shorter-lasted, so to speak. [​IMG]

    I am a 12.5 US Wide.

    #1 on my must have list are a pair of staple, investment worthy black toe cap oxford shoes.


    Just logged onto Mr Porter Sale. Only one:

    Rare score, I don't remember ever seeing a wide fitting JL on any of the usual online suspects

    All, I bought the Brentwood monkstrap in New Gold (I think) Misty Calf from Barneys on their final markdown. I think it's a beautiful shoe.

    http://www.barneys.com/John-Lobb-Brentwood/501916008,default,pd.html

    I don't think it quite fits. It's a size UK 7E/US 8D. If anyone wants it, let me know. I'll sell at my cost ($519+taxes, shipping, paypal fees). If no one wants it, I'll send back to store. In great condition vs the shoes still left at Barneys.
