^Spoo, I was actually going to ask if those were even welted -- but if they are Lobbs then I can beleive that.

yeah.. that pair of Aldens from a few weeks back that you helped me identify was my first - and those are some serious ass welts - coming from someone who has sleek last syndrome!

I don't think they are welted. Not even bespoke welts are cut that close to the uppers.

Of all my shoes, I have no doubt you like these the most.

Last week I received, after what seemed like ages, my 2 new pairs of shoes I'd ordered from Silvestro (Benson's). Guess once you've placed an order for something nice, you get so excited and impatient that weeks seem like months

The shoes look awesome, and are very comfortable - nice fit. I especially love the Burgundy colour that Paolo managed to attain, not to mention the excellent workmanship and beautiful finish.

Few details about the shoes:
  • Shoe construction - Blake+Rapid
  • Calf leather
  • Hand coloured
I've attached below some pics of my latest addition to my recent addiction (shoes!). I think the pictures speak for themselves.

  • Model Pirandello in Burgundy
  • Model Macchiavelli 3 in Antique Yellow
I was very particular about the shade of Burgundy, and sent Paolo a picture with the colour I was looking for. All I can say is that I'm extremely pleased with the results. Excellent service too, I must add.

Don't think it'll be long before I place my next order, perhaps the model Petrarca in Antique Orange.

If they're Hermes branded, then they're not made by Lobb.
