Is Cettire having a sale on JLs? The Chapel, William, Lopez and Phillip are all too cheap to believe. I'm seeing 950 dollars for the Phillip II.

I got a pair of William from Italist last year for less than $700. I imagine a lot of retailers in Italy are sitting on stock they haven't been able to move but had to take on to fulfil MOQs

I’m willing to take a stab at it … I’ve been looking at the PHILLIP and Chapel. Although I think Chapel will get far fewer wears so maybe just go with Oxford …

Hello Gentlemen,

I own 3 JL, and I saw this on ebay. However, there is no JL brand anywhere on this shoe. Is this fake?

They could have been a sample produced / custom order. Look like the Jermyn

It’s there it just got rubbed out - My guess is an outlet store had it or someone donated it to a thrift shop - not uncommon for people to cut off brand tags or try to hide designers on things they donate. Not sure but I think that seller may be active on here. But no not fake.

Yeah...it looks real....who would go to the trouble of faking a JL and doing such a good job of it?

However, I prefer the 8000 last to the 7000.

you mind to share what size u ordered?
I ordered a pair of the Philip II and Lopez from the sale at Cettire and should have them next week--I don't doubt they're legit but can confirm any experiences/questions one may have

Thanks. Jermyn II or Jermyn III? The inside markings have been rubbed off, but it looks like a 7000 last.
Why have the markings been rubbed off? Could it be that they were the wrong size printed?

In which case the seller has to estimate what the true size is?

I don't know, but he's selling several pairs of JL shoes with the same issue, so I'm guessing they're floor samples.
You can barely make out the 10 1/2 markings on the inside.

Think people are over thinking it. Outlet stores do that with a lot of items so they can’t be returned somewhere. On suits they’ll take a marker to the name tag and draw a black line through it. People who donate items to thrift stores debrand items and hide what it is from flippers. It’s pretty common.
