You're right, he's an absolute gent - gave me directions to Lobb, told me to wind up the lady who ran the factory...
Well as has been heralded, C&J came though - there was a queue waiting for them to open at 2pm which was a good sign. Once inside a larger room than the others, they had a good and quite consistent level of stock. I came away with the Bermuda in tan nubuck on a rubber sole for 80, Derby in tan country grain on a Wayferer sole for 120 and a Brooks Brothers Alonquin split-toe blucher in black grain on a Dainite sole. They had a good selection of boots at 150 and dress shoes...
I hope the OP doesn't mind me stealing his thread. I'm sat in the White Elephant pub just around the corner from the John Lobb factory, having visited the following factory shops: Church's - turn left out of the station across tge railway bridge, and the large factory is a couple of hundred yards down on your left. The factory shop is a small room accessed directly from the street. The stock levels seemed good, with a mix of what must be very slight seconds and...

Doucal's usually shown up at my local TJ Maxx for <$100, and I've not been impressed with the quality at that price. Quote: Originally Posted by clausc Doucal's suede tassel loafers from Yoox ?

Well I picked this up at a thrift recently - it's not my size, but I thought someone would benefit from it. Condition-wise it's not perfect as you'll see, but then I hope I've priced it accordingly. I'm not making any money on this (shipping from the UK, the pound has taken a hammering!). Price is $100 shipped The upside; - Handmade Anderson & Sheppard quality - Lovely ~12oz birdeye fabric - Unusual (for A&S) 2/3 roll SB w/ dart and side body, flat front...
