After closer inspection of your pics I finally picked my personal winner:

* John Lobb Welham *

Gotta get this one!!!!

Well the genie said I could have one wish and more shoes seemed like a natural.

Glad you like the Welham, wait until you see it in person, it's one of the more elegant shoes I've seen in a while.

Hey Andrew your collection takes my breath away.How many pairs do you have now?What I be right in assuming you purchased a pair of JL "Chelmer" in 7 yesterday?I took the 6.5,they are an incredibly elegant shoe,I like you will squeeze or grow into anything from a 6.5 to a 7.5.However I had the Chelmer in 7.5 and found them just too big so to get them in a 6.5 has made my week.
By the way if it wasn't you who purchased the Chelmer just ignore my ramblings.

Thanks for the kind words benecios. Guilty as charged on the "Chelmer." I fell hard for the the 4800 last. Also on the way are a pair of the 4800 last "Sandon" in dark brown suede, the Vintage 2002 in claret and the new Prestiege "Sutton" medallion oxford in Parisian brown.

Once again Andrew, your shoe purchases make me drool, and make my own unspectacular collection seem inadequate.

I think I may be prompted to blow a fair amount of money this weekend shopping for some new shoes!

Impressive does not begin to do this "week's" collection justice. This should not only insipre us all to hunt harder, but also to don those great pairs we have that are siting, beautiful but unused, in the closet.

Girardian thanks for the kind words and you make an excellent point. I broke in two new pair of shoes this week. If you don't wear them, the whole thing takes on a creepy sort of Vincent Price-like vibe.
