• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

me potter around and wear jean today.
me wear jean more recent,
it something me not do before.
make me feel very common

John Lobb use Bakers leather for outsole and it use ltalian leather for insole.
It cater to european market and use softer insole leather.
That why outsole is yellow and the insole is white.
European like faster break in time and shoe that not feel hard on bottom.
Italian insole make it softer for standing.
Shoe with Bakers outsole and insole take long time to break in.

Yes, I have 2 pairs of the Levahs. Made to order is free so it was great to have different options on colors/leathers/soles.

Does anyone know anything about the John Lobb Hendra Suede Loafers? They appear to be a new model, and I can’t find much info on them.

They are quite a bit less expensive than the other loafers JL offers, and I was wondering why. Is the construction up to par? Are they Goodyear welted? Is it because they are made in Italy?
