    Is it just me, or is the leather reminiscent to the famous sunken reindeer hides?

    I recommend Lobb St. James to anyone who is passionate about English Bespoke...

    hmmh, only english, not bespoke shoes in general?

    though, i have the whole palette of great craftsmen right in front of me in Vienna, i have a sentimental connection to Lobb since i saw a documentary about them. i have been there and you got it to the point with your description of the old world charme. i couldn't afford to place an order back than, but i exactly knew, i will return to this place...

    Thanks for posting the Lobb St. James! They are beautiful. Wish we could see more of them but that is what happens when a shop is bespoke only.

    Did you not place an order as well?
    Artoftime,terrific looking shoes,I'd go with a different design but that's only because I am not much into monks.

    Sure I could pay someone to do it for me but there is something to be said about a man that shines his own shoes.

    Take care of the things you own and they will.......

    Got these EG's in green suede from SF B&S. It's funny because I almost bought them when on sale last year but I hesitated and missed out on my size. Now they have a happy home.

    Yes they are. Just showed them to Mrs Pocketsquare who gave them two thumbs up and a "they look so British" seal of approval (being a Brit she gets to say that [​IMG] ).

    The only downside is that I can't see myself wearing them until Oct. They just have a Fall and Winter look about them. But when the leaves fall I will know doubt be wearing these with a chunky knit sweater or corduroy suit.

    Bespoke Lobb Monks - needed them in a durable leather that had a nice warm patina and could withstand Town & Country. Looking forward to breaking them in!

    I could not agree more. And there is just something awesome about austerity brogues.

    That adelaide is pretty much exactly what I hope to commission from Ugolini when I make the trip to Firenze. Except in black and without the medallion (I got to get a black shoe some day [​IMG])

    Mine would probably have a brogued captoe though.

    I ended up going with JLP bespoke. I was measured in NYC.

    He has already registered on the forum and I hope he will start posting and unravel the mystery himself!
