*Vintage Bespoke JOHN LOBB Brogued Monk Strap Kiltie Loafer: 40-40.5D

                                                                        Artikelnummer: 10397JL

John Lobb
St. James, London
Bespoke Brogued Monk Strap, Kiltie Loafer
Circa 1980
Euro 580
The present shoe dates from the 1980s, and is, in my opinion, one of the most unusual models produced by
this good shoemaker, an exceeding fancy loafer obviously made to the specifications of a very particular client. Notice the shape of the wing-tip, the perforations at the margin of the kiltie and, of course, the strap and buckle. Nothing is missing on this  shoe. This goes 
far beyond any ordinary loafer both in form and build quality. Very nice too, to find it in this small size....doubly rare!
 
 
Size: As a custom-made shoe this is unmarked as to size but consistent with a UK 6-6.5E......US 7-7.5D.......European 40-40.5D, for the medium width foot. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Condition: Recently restored with low-profile "continental" brand rubber sole and McAfee style dove-tailed combination heels....and never worn since. 
 
 
For the gentleman who would consider owning such a shoe, nothing need be added about the shoemaker, except to say that there is little comparison between this shoe and modern Lobbs, even the bespoke variety. If you have not experienced a great custom-made shoe in the old style, one that today would be in the Euro 4000 category -the fit, the feel, the cradling of the foot- here is an opportunity to do so at little cost.
