Beautiful.

I was looking at them at the NYC store on Saturday. I came in to buy a pair of brown shoes, and fell in love with the plum museum. They had an 11e and I need 11ee. If I want them, I need to order.

Does anyone have suggestions for ordering lobbs at a slightly better price from stores online as we are able to do with several comparable brands? Thanks.

(One guinea was a pound and a shilling. So ten guineas are £10.50 in modern money.) The inflation calculator will tell us that £10 s10 in 1945 is the equivalent of just under 400 GBP (or 675 USD) today.

Things do have changed!

Interesting and sad aspect of that shot of the lasts is that the great Polish leader and hero - General Sikorski - had already demised in a suspicious plane crash in Gibraltar in 1943. That last really should be remitted to Poland as a national treasure.

JL's plum museum may very well be the most attractive burgundy-ish calfskin on the market.

400 GBP is relatively affordable in today money.

Sizing question. Would the Philip II in 10D wear similar to a 9.5E?
Thanks in advance

I've just ordered navy Madeira calf boots, the same style as my black mid-box pair from Lobb in St James'(bespoke) but they take 10 months to make so I've got to be sit tight and wait!
