At the Costa Mesa location, I am told that if I order something this week that is not available in inventory (e.g. a black Lopez in 9 EE with a rubber sole) I will get that in December.
How long does it take for Lobb to make 1 pair of RTW shoes?
What are your thoughts on a new Saint Crispin model? I like the simplicity, yet the form is bugging me. It's like a Oxford shoe with a overall look of a derby..
What do they usually do with the Saint Crispin model?? I handled 2012-13 model and felt the same quality wise as John Lobbs prestige collection, including leahter and sole. The shoe does look really plain but sharp at the same time.
Unfortunate that they revealed early. Design is uninspiring. Will take another season to see what she has to offer.
Use google images: "John Lobb Saint Crispin year" should come up at least with the last ten years. You might not find the very early models on google anymore. After all, JL has been doing the annual "Saint Crispin" model for maybe 20 years.
Here are the designs for the last three years:
First model I've seen is I think 1996, an imitation full brogue, model named Klein.
Apparently, here are images of the Saint Crispin models from1996 onwards:
I've never really liked the John Lobb Vintage/Saint Crépin models aside from the Vintage 1999 which I own. The models to me range from ugly to quirky to blah.
The 2009 is my favorite out of the past 10 years or so. Most of the others haven't really been that interesting to me.
2010 is awesome
Totally agree. Definitely worth posting the picture.
