    There is a seller on ebay (sausage234) who has more than 20 John Lobbs for sale. Anyone have any dealings with him? I found a pair of Lobbs that I like, but in the auction he states that in the lining they are stamped with an "R", and the only thing I can think of is that these are a Rejects. What's your take?

    Anyone have any experience with the Lobb last 8000? what are they like in comparision to EG 888 or 808?

    THanks,

    R

    I have bought all my Ebay Lobbs from modern-vintage, who is great.

    I have bid on sausages's shoes but not won. He is now slightly annoying in that now that I hav bid on one of his shoes he constantly emails me to alert me when he has more listed in my size. I'm like "I know, duh, I check Ebay 350 times a day."

    Anyway, that's my Ebay Lobb experience for you.


    p.s.: I also love the 8000 last. I'm not good at comparisons, so I'll leave that to someone else.

    I've bought shoes from sausages234 - they are, indeed, Rejects from Northampton, but are fine shoes. I got the Vintage 2004 and they have treated me well...

    Are the JL and EG models from seller modern-vintage rejects/samples?

    I am considering the Inverness....Item number: 9318230306

    I think they're samples; great choice by the way.[​IMG]

    Thanks Koji...

    The antique Burgundy for EG would be a first for me. I hope the pictures are a good representation of the actual color.[​IMG]

    How does one tell a sample or reject EG model?
    Is there also a stamp on the lining like JL?

    I've noticed these Lobb's as well. Does anyone have experience with the 5495 last? I have Lobb Perriers on the 8695 last and they are probably my best-fitting shoes. How does the 5495 compare with the 8695?

    I'm sure this has been covered in threads before, but what's the difference between John Lobb Northampton and John Lobb Paris?

    John Lobb Paris' factory is in Northampton. I don't think it's a convention to refer JLP as John Lobb Northampton.

    did you see the plum museum calf colored captoes posted recently on auction? pretty cool; wonder how they would look with a grey or navy suit?

    I would guess these to be about a size 10.5D american, right? lucky for you guys i'm not currently in the market for a new pair of shoes!

    I generally wear 9.5F in Grenson Masterpiece, and 10.5D in the usual AE's (probably a 10E for the Park Avenue last).

    If I were to get something in the 8695 last, would I be better off with a 9.5E or a 10E?

    Don't worry, I'm not interested in getting the plum museum calf captoes right at this moment....

    Please corect me if I'm wrong - but I think:
    John Lobb Paris is owned by Hermes and makes shoes in Northhampton.
    John Lobb London is a bespoke only operation in London.
