Hi
Which John Lobb last is this? Is it RTW or MTO?
The models shown are the 2007 (the 3rd shoe plum colour) and the winchester but I have found no info about that specific last.
Can anyone shed any light?
Thanks

Lobb Winchester is on the 7000.
Lobb 2007 is on the 1105.

Winchester is in current RTW line; 2007 is retired, but you could still get it as MTO.

Are you sure? They look like the same last to me, although im no Lobb expert.
Does anyone have a side by side to compare the 7000 vs 1105?

They are not the same last. I prefer the 7000 as it is a little sleeker. If you look cllosely- the footbed of the 7000 last is a little more rounded and fluid, while the 1105 juts out slightly (if that makes any sense)

The brown and the black shoe in the 7000 last look really good. Where did you find those?

Yes.

I've attached a picture of the Winchester box, which indicates the 7000 last, and a shot of a 2007, which you can read 9E1105 on the inside of the shoe.

Thanks. Isn't he a member here? If so, what's his user name because I have question for him about a shoe that I just saw on his blog.

Mine, too. It's very comfortable for me. I wore a pair on the 7000 yesterday, but have on the 8000 today, and really notice the difference.

My favorite is the 8000 last, mainly because I have small feet. T.T

On the plus side I can wear all the pointy lasts without looking like a clown >.>b
