The most beautiful shop in the world

"The most beautiful shop in the world . . ." - ....that is how Esquire magazine described the wood-paneled splendor of the London(UK) premises of John Lobb, Bootmaker. In the shadow of the great gate-tower of St. James's Palace, built by Henry VIII, and echoing to the stamping feet of bear-skinned guardsmen, St. James's Street has been traditionally the home of coffee houses, gentlemen's clubs and elegant outfitters; a Mecca for the noble and the fashionable for centuries.

So long as there are customers who prize the unique comfort and confidence to be gained from gleaming shoes of the highest quality leathers, finely tailored to fit each individual foot to perfection, there will be a Lobb's. To revive memories of the first John Lobb, the family firm presently and proudly holds a unique triple of Royal Warrants as Bootmaker to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II; to His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh; and to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. The Lobb tradition is alive and flourishing.
