Aren't their two Lobb factories? I think there's one in London that's primarily bespoke and then the Parisian outfit which is RTW for the most part. I am mainly talking out of my ass but that's something to be aware of if I'm right.
Think it, be it.

There is Lobb, the custom shoemaker in central London.  Highy, highly bespoke - I have a pair made there - long story but they were made for Dodi Fayed......

And there is Lobb the high end off the shelf shoemaker, they are based in Northampton. 

Paris, I know nothing about.......

There is lobb Paris, from what I read it took over an old Edward green factory and is owned by Hermes. Everuthing ive read states it is still one of the greatest OTR shoes out there... However the chelsea I'm looking at is actually labeled lobb so unassuming it's the lobb OTR Giles mentioned... Again I have not done an incredible amount of history dogging on the company I just like what I've seen... Keeping my eyes opened.. I like the church's I received and picked them up at an incredible steal compared to MSRP but now that I know the chelsea is the boot for me (now that I can't do engineers anymore) I'd like to invest in a very nice well made pair and beat the snot out of my church's...call me crazy

Do you guys use SMF4Mobile (the non-Tapatalk mobile theme)? I might remove it if it's not being used.

I have been using it, but I also have tapatalk, so I could easily switch.

Really, I use the forum on the go so very little, that I haven't really formed a preference.  I use the other thing more than tapatalk, but that's because my iphone uses it automatically.  Thanks, @shoque!
