SOLD Price reduction: $800 -> $750-> $700. Pair of brand-new John Lobb Vintage 2005 model in size 8 1/2E (UK) or 9 1/2D in the US system. Parisian Brown Museum Calf; 7000 last. Come with JL shoe trees. (Note: Because of my poor photographic skills, the last picture seems to suggest that one shoe is darker than the other. This is not the case--just the lighting, I guess.) Shipping costs will be added once they have been determined for the destination. Buyer can...
Why C width? Because I have slightly narrow feet. Hard to explain just how narrow that is, but it is one step narrower than D, which is the average, or medium, width. Hope this helps.
SOLD Price reduction: $650 -> $550. Gaziano & Girling Astaire; 9C (UK) which, according to G&G converts to size 9.5 in the US system.

Just great stuff, Allen--the kind of thread that adds something of true substance to this forum. It's really interesting to hear that a Canadian company is producing for Allen-Edmonds. For years it was Crookhorn, and then another US company. Your Street Views feature in the Montreal Gazette is a delightful read. I've always thought that Montrealers--particularly the women--dress so very well, and so much better than Vancouverites. Your feature confirms this. Is the...
