New John Lobb Saint-Crépin Model

First Luxe has a preview of John Lobb’s new Saint-Crépin model for later this year – a wholecut double monkstrap made on the 7000 last.

We’ll have to wait for them to release more pictures, but it looks like they added some sort of reverse stitch along the inside area where the strap is cut (not sure on the reason, maybe to add reinforcement?).

Also called galoshes by some. This period of the year tends to bring lots of rain to Seattle, and is usually when I pull out my SWIMS. They work well enough in protecting my shoes, and the insides are lined with a soft material that helps with taking them on and off. Allen Edmonds sells them on their site for just under $100 which is not too bad, versus other places that sell them for around $130. I would also recommend following Allen Edmonds sizing advice for these (a size 12US should get XXL for example).

John Lobb Paris sells some fancy overshoes as well, but are ridiculously expensive at 120GBP or so for a pair.

Yellow seems like it would be a fun color to get, but it also feels like a slippery slope down a dandy path that I’d rather not go.

John Lobb’s New Spiral Cut Shoes

John Lobb sent out an email recently with a link to images for the new “Saint-Crépin” model for this year.  At first glance they’re a bit ordinary.

But now look at the top view:

Notice something different?  They used one piece of leather cut into a spiral shape to wrap around a last to shape into a shoe.  The concept itself is not new and has been employed by other artisan shoe makers, but so far John Lobb’s model above is the best looking one yet.
