I mean you have Oxford vs. Derby, which I'm sure you've already debated - not really the same type of shoe. I know the Lobb City II's Museum calf is from Ilcea and is as smooth as you're gonna get - absolutely beautiful in person. I want to make little Ilcea leather babies with them. I'm not familiar with Gravati but it sounds like they are a relatively old handmade Italian brand. Which ones do you think are nicer/prettier/will wear better? My vote is for the Lobbs.
