I was lucky enough to get this pair off B&S a few months ago. Stunning shoes. And stunning shoe trees.




These are gorgeous. Too bad they are out of production. Wish there is somewhere in LA where I can try the C&J Lowndes, instead of ordering blind online.

I have Lobb Williams II in black and brown. I highly recommend them for their classic good looks and comfort.

But if you day job is being a Pimp, you must get these Lobbigators.....

I hadn't even noticed anything unusual about them until you pointed them out. What's wrong with them in your view?

To each his own. The shape, with the pointed end and the open ended buckle. I can't see that functioning well over time. It isn't form follows function. It has no purpose. Buckles need to be fully functional IMO. Plus, I don't like the long skinny shape of the shoes. Unless you have size AAA feet I suppose.

I now see what you mean about the open-ended buckle. I thought at first glance that it was passing through a loop in the leather.

In Buenos Aires at the moment. I just picked up a pair of brown double monks from Rossi y Caruso for $150. Goodyear welted. Breaking them in with a night out on the town here. Pics to follow eventually, maybe.
