Hey, Am looking at a Lobb on line, 8605 last, and could use some sizing advice. I wear a UK 9.5 in most of my English shoes ( EG - 82/888, C&J 337, Peals etc) Have gone with a UK 9 in Lobb 7000/8000 however - the one 9.5 I have in 7000 has required a tongue pad for a good fit. What should I take in the 8605? I suspect a 9.5 as from what I understand the 7000/8000 are unusual in that they require you tio size down. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

New Borgioli...a make that doesn't get much love here at SF, but I rather like them - from their elite FAM line. Scored them at a local shop having a remodeling sale...the 60% discount was [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG] According to the store owner, Borgioli will be pulling out of the American market. He said that the bulk of their production was being bought up for sale in Russia.
I suspect you mean Signature Gold...not Signature. The Signature line normally sells for about 300 or so. (listed at 695) The Signature Gold (listed at 995-1295) normally sells for 695 I think. 300 for a Signature Gold is not bad if you like the fit and fabric. My best score was a 1295 Gold for 199.00. Good deal at that price for sure. I hate Banks pricing approach with their inflated, never asked list price.

I love Nagrani socks. Anyone have some good leads on where to buy them on the net. I am looking for selection moreso than a price bargain. Any suggestions? Thanks
Manton, Excellent! I love the way the white shows through the brogueing on the toe cap. Be careful polishing! Enjoy!

Sharp! It is not really as long as it appears. Here is a comparison with C&J 337 and EG 82 all are 9.5 UK The C&J is the longer of the three. The G&G is actually very similar to the the EG 82, though more pointed. ...
