I really want to like shell but I must have been very unlucky because every pair I have had have welted horribly at the merest hint of rain. They then look absolutely dreadful and it's pretty embarrassing (I work in a formal business environment with senior people so can't get away with it). As I live in the UK I can't leave home in the morning and guarantee it won't rain at some point in the day (for about ten months of the year anyway) so I find them being worn less...
Had a wander round Jermyn St/Bond St/Burlington Arcade yesterday in search of a new wallet (not a green breast wallet, I understand they are quite difficult to obtain......). Good fun and there are some nice sales on. My first choice was SAB but they have sold out of London Tan and "may be expecting more in February". I headed up Jermyn St and had a look in Fosters - some nice options but not quite what I was looking for. Tons of shoes in the sale though (Trickers...
^^^Thanks for the advice, will check them out.
Hello, OP mentions that home cinema systems are OK too. I've just finished putting one together in a dedicated room (a converted outbuilding). Kit list is: JVC HD750 projector (I think it's called the RS20 in the US) Beamax A-velvet 110in screen Denon 3800 blu-ray player Sky HD satellite box Lexicon MC4 processor (I love this and can't give it up so I feed HD audio in from the 3800 via analogue out and do bass management in the player). NAD Masters M25 7 channel...

Quote: Originally Posted by Jangofett I note the same point about Ascot Shoes. They have tons of Lobbs plus some Prestiges. Some other sellers are also selling brand new R Lobbs too. But I dont' see why JL would be upset about sellers like Ascot. I mean, just jack up the price to Ascot's and sell it on the internet if they aren't too pleased with internet sellers. If not, sell it at whatever price they do now and should be thankful if their stocks...
Quote: Originally Posted by theyare How does that seller end up with so much inventory if they are so suspicious and aware of him? Very good question - I guess he/she has people buying on his/her behalf. I dropped into the sale last year and noticed that about three weeks later Ascot Shoes had 30-40 pairs on ebay that were in the sale (boat shoes, loafers, rubber soles, etc.). They were marked up pretty significantly from the shop sale...
The problem with the Lobb factory shop is that they are hugely suspicious of anyone they don't know (they hate Ebay sellers) and that can give off a strong negative vibe. Once you've been there a few times and bought some shoes (ideally in your own size), they lighten up a bit and become a lot more friendly. In one of my early visits I was asked if I was Ascot Shoes because I was looking at shoes that weren't my size! (I'm not Ascot Shoes, by the way ).

Honestly, of all the fora I've been on, this one has BY FAR the best moderation, best balance, etc. Nevertheless, it's sort of the writing-on-the-wall, and going through the SAME thing I've seen on all the others in terms of how things go. I'm not sure that it is something, either, that could be solved with the banhammer (that, too, was the result/strategy on...
