Vintage John Lobb Ltd. Catalogue

2

October 9, 2013 by Ville Raivio

The house of Lobb has shared the following scans years ago, but I found them too light, small and unclear. An hour’s go with Photoshop did the trick and English cordwainery has never looked better. The example pairs are smart, light, contoured, neatly finished and come with delightfully solemn descriptions in true English spirit. The catalogue offers great inspiration for shoe nerds and bespeakers alike — lasting value warms the heart.

    Greetings, Fausto.

    I’ve been pondering about the very same thing, but then I remember that I rarely leave comments on other sites. Why fix something that works so well?

    Hi, how are you?
    It´s a shame that a blog with such good information
    has so few comments
    Be sure I will be visiting often
    the site is very informative.
    Best regards
