• John Lobb Shoe Shine
    • The John Lobb Shoeshine Chair

      The Connaught’s John Lobb shoeshine treatment is taking its hallmark butler service to the next level. Specially trained by John Lobb at their factory in Northampton, the butlers are set to raise the bar in the world of polish and shine.

      Only the finest John Lobb materials are used including brushes, cloth, wax and polish, whilst guests are offered a Connaught martini or drink of their choice and a wealth of reading material creating some proper downtime. And for the finishing touch, the gentleman’s jacket is whisked away by the valet for a steam press.

      The shoeshine chair is clad in tobacco coloured buffalo leather, with a distinctively masculine silhouette and carefully streamlined design. The wooden stool and toolbox are as integral to the shoeshine experience as the podium itself, which features two precisely placed nickel-plated brass footrests moulded with John Lobb’s initials. Similarly, the chair’s height and proportion have been optimised to create an equal rapport between the shoe-shiner and the customer.

      The John Lobb shoeshine is priced at £30 per session, and lasts approximately half an hour. 

      Finding the right present for a special man is never easy. But the Connaught offers the perfect solution in the John Lobb shoeshine gift voucher.
