Anyone have any tips? If your expertise is in Europe I'm really...

I am looking for my next shoe and looking for advice from wise minds. I had recently purchased a pair of C&J Lowndes and could not be more happier with the thinner elongated last so I am looking for something similar but maybe in an oxford and not necessarily English. I have been looking through the Shoe Porn Damage thread and I have no doubt beauty is in the eye of the beholder and one shoe brand that caught my eye is Romano Martegani. Ideally shoe is...
Lacoste - $200+ for a pair of shoes made in Vietnam and the classic polo now virtually not made in France anymore.

Good point about the creasing.
I am contemplating a purchase on the Loake Norwich in Burnished Dark brown. Although I was looking for a whole shoe with drilled holes on the toes in dark brown, this one isn't too bad in terms of looks. If there are any owners of this shoe or other sharp minds I am open to influence and advice. This is an F last like all standard Loakes. The E last is somewhat marginally too narrow on my Crocket and Jones Lowndes however I like the thinner look of them. I am hoping...
