    I normally think wholecuts need a chiseled last to avoid looking like a football, but those are changing my mind...

    It can be found on their online shop as a MTO style with shoe trees included - Marldon. It costs about $2,000.00 .. Handsome style, but whether it's worth it that much is, ofc, highly subjective. Definitely more than I am willing to pay. Than again .. Being that City II now costs 1,4K and comes without shoe trees and not as prestige line .. The price is reasonable in their nomenclature ..

    Brown is the Archer, black is the Luffiled, green is a Corthay Arca. Arca is a little longer and slightly more chiseled than the Archer and Luffield.

    Took the plunge and acquired this pair of worn-once JLP bespoke at minimal costs.
    Fits like a dream! I can see now the leather and craftsmanship are indeed another level comparing to RTW.

    Sure, I think the topy was added afterwards. It is not ideal as I am more of a leather+toe tap guy.

    I think I chose chestnut museum when I bought them but the box doesn’t list the color like they used to.

    Gentlemen,

    Sizing dilemma

    (i) I am a solid 11/11.5 E82 on Edward Green 82 Last (Chelsea) which I purchased in-store from Steven at Leffot, NYC.
    (ii) I have on the way a pair of EG Galways in 11.5/12D on the 82 Last. I was advised to go half a size up on the narrower D Last.
    (iii) I also went half a size up (11.5/12 E888), but same width on a pair of Monmouth Double-Soled Bluchers due to the narrow(er) toe box of the 888 Last.

    What size would you recommend in the John Lobb 8000 Last? Specifically referring to (i) Phillip II (ii) Chapel (iii) Beckett (v) Vale (vi) Harlyn (Not sure this if is on 8000 Last??).

    Thank you in advance

    Alan Bee

    I don’t own any EG’s but do own 1 pair of G&G. I wear a 7E in both brands.

    Many people go half a size up on 8000 last compare to 7000 last. 8000 is a narrower last.
    For me,I wear same size on EG 202 and JL 7000.82 and 8000 are a little narrow for me. While 202 is narrower than 82 and 8000 is narrower than 7000, I think you may chose the same size on 82 and 8000.

    Saw this pair of "John Lobb" shoes in new edition of Esquire Black Book.
    Any idea on which model this is? I don't see it as a current offering on the website.
    Maybe Saint Crepin?

    Ha.

    The double sole and thicker heel stumps me. It appears to me that the right shoe (left in the picture) has 6 eyelets, and the left shoe (right in the picture) has 5. I might send that pair back for another look by Lobb QC.

    I agree, they look a little rough and tumble for Lobbs. More of a Crockett and Jones vintage shoe or something. I think its
    a misprint. Beautiful though. Would be a shoe I could actually wear here in MN.
