i picked up a couple pairs of john lobbs at the goodwill a few days ago. i'm sending them to my dad, as they are too small for me. i'm hoping some of you shoe freaks can shed some light on what i got: both pair have, in the insole, the printed label with three crests, and John Lobb, New York Paris London. No cool embossed 'JL' logo like i've seen on some shoes. first pair: brown blucher, no broguing. handwritten number inside: A15167. second pair: black bal wingtip, full brogue. handwritten number inside: 79997. both pair are fairly worn, looks like original soles. no pictures, i've already got 'em boxed up to mail. thanks in advance, andrew ps - also picked up a gently-worn pair of AE McCallister wingtips in black. look pretty sharp.
