Their position is that the split yoke and pleats are needed for RTW shirts so that they are more "flexible" - but...

The HG have full leather linings (which is a functiondal difference - I think) and the corner is nicked off the heal (which is...
Forgot to mention - that I got a 9.5E (UK) in the Westfields and a 10D (US) in the Polos. The Polos are a tad bigger (but not unacceptably by any means) - because they are made on a longer last with a sligtly squared toe. But that is my size conversion info for anyone interested.

I only have one other pair of C&Js which, as previously mentioned, I bought at full retail from the C&J store at T&A. While there I did look...

I was pretty shocked to win the auction - My bid went in about 5 hours before auction end for $201. I was shocked to check my email this evening to see that I had won them for $168. I bought a pair of C&Js (from the store at T&A in NYC) at full retail of $475 earlier this year. Those were 9.5Es - hopefully these 10s fit me just right.
Probably should have asked this before bidding - but for $168 I figure they are pretty much a steal either way. http://cm.ebay.com/cm/ck/1065-29392-...tem=7766536608 What do you think? Rajesh

Please corect me if I'm wrong - but I think: John Lobb Paris is owned by Hermes and makes shoes in Northhampton. John Lobb London is a bespoke only operation in London.

At 380 EUR - I think that is actually a bit less than the bench grades - which currenly go for US$475.
