Nice work Frilly
Got my John Lobb William 2 Parisian Brown back from having stitching repaired. Service and communication were excellent, they also did a very good job on the repair. It took exactly a month but they did say it would take a month.
Good to hear, would luv to see some pictures. By the way what caused the stitching to come loose in the first place?
My camera phone does a crap job of taking close up small pictures. The thread came loose while i was brushing the shoes so i think when a line of stitching was complete it wasn't 'closed off' properly. One of the buckle attachments was also loose. I don't know what caused this but i only noticed it after close inspection of the pair after the first flaw. These things happen to the best of companies, but i think John Lobbs response was very positive and helpful. I will definitely be buying from them again.
Hutton in Parisian Brown Misty. Thought that I could make em' work, however a tad small. Soon to be on B&S.
Back and forth a few months, I finally pulled the trigger for JLs.
I would just go with the Black Lopez instead, but nice shoes!
Is the Oxford shoe in the middle City II in Parisian Brown Museum?
Your correct. it is City II Parisian Brown Museum.. I was on the fence for the Savannah but bought it regardless.
Great shoes. With the black loafer, I would guess you were going for a model more formal than the Lopez (if that's the case, you made the right choice).
Thanks. I do not wear loafers in general with the formal attire but just wanted to give a try..
sevenfoldtg, why do you think Lopez is less formal than these loafers? I have two pairs and they are dead-classic in my eyes, they can go well even with the suit, although I never wear them with a suit ..
Parisian Brown is the prettiest looking John Lobb brown in my book. Not too screamy like the New Gold might be, yet not too dark as dark brown museum might be. A perfect shade balance IMO.
Nice selection. I assume those balmorals are in the 7000 last? I wish JL fit me as well as EG/G&G because they do have nice sleek lines.
