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.

Why do you say these are narrow? 2. Do you think this shoe is a 9.5 UK instaed of 9.5 US? - I am hoping you say "yes" to this question.

Do you wear bespoke / MTM shirts - if so, I think its really hard to back to OTR - even...
Per the C&J 337 thread - I just bought my first pair of C&Js. Do you think the $100 waxed shoe trees from C&J are worth it - relative to the $25 split toe Woodlores that I would get otherwise?

So what do you recomend for maintainance - cream or wax polish?

Well this is the watch I wear: http://www.watchbuys.com/Master/NI-023.htm I think it looks reasoanbly dressy. I am 6'0 185 - and I dont think it looks too big. I actually think that these days 40mm is average theese days.
