    Another stupid Lobb Paris gimmick.

    Why is it a gimmick? Is it a gimmick when other artisans do the same thing?

    Too many seams to be a real seamless wholecut in the sense of Gomez or Koronya, their own definition of spiral cut sounds better

    Well - it is true, we (or at least: me) make the seamless wholecut a totally different way, but it is still a beautiful shoe and a very interesting solution. Congratulation collagues!

    Neat idea, but I don't see the practical or aesthetic advantage.

    Neat idea if the shoe actually looked good.

    Inspiration?

    IMO the Jermyn is a better example of the 1 piece wrap construction concept.

    Maybe "Gamay," "Cabernet," and "Merlot" will be joined by Lobb's newest color, "Succulent Ham."

    "Honey-glazed" is special order with a modest up-charge.

    It might be more to your liking but I don't think it's a "better example" of the concept - much simpler and not as illustrative of the concept as the 2009.

    Can anyone tell me how to get the "Honey-glazed" finish with a can of carcinogenic stripper and this hair dye I found in the sale bin at Walgreens?

    I'm afraid I just don't 'get' Lobb's RTW range. The shoes in the window of the Jermyn Street store look flashy, the styling too contemporary. Look at this, dreadful, no?

    Not a winner for me! It looks cheap and nasty.

    It's Edward Green for me.
