P/S: I've just looked into the end of line sale from Bespoke-England and found these models are available in my size: City II, Darby II, Darby III, Cavendish, Saunton, St. Crepin 2008, Illford, Truro, Fencote. Any of these are you guys favorite?

City II and chapel in brown museum calf.

Agree. The iconic JL models are generally the Philip, City, Becketts, Chapel, William...

Don't forget the Lopez! One of their oldest styles. Since 1950.

Indeed!(: the older styles are much much nicer than the newer ones IMO.

Glad Nick fired up the thread with a recent sale. It's been quiet here for a while. JL still got it with their classic styles.

Still waiting on my pair of Williams in Brown Suede or Parisian. Too cheap to pay the full price.

Thanks for all the input guys!

City
Phillip
Chapel
Becketts
William
Vale
Luffied

I will keep my eyes on these models!

And beside Misty Calf (successor of Museum Calf) and exotic options is there other leather from JL that is interesting and worth the price?

If you're looking for a new pair of JL, You'd be crazy not to kop a pair right now from bespoke England. I've never see new JL this cheap

I was highly considering the Turvey but wasn't sure if I would wear them.
post #2833 of 4399

I see them as a summer shoe, no socks, maybe wear them with shorts? At that price hard to pass up.

I had 4 pair in the cart but waited overnight, next day 2 of the pair were gone.

Great choice Jazz. I totally agree, especially the JL for Paul Smith shoes which are £200 for suede versions and £250 for the calf versions. A factory resole through JL HK for the regular line is already £250! So I get a brand new pair of first quality shoes and free shoe trees for less than or the same price as the cost of a resole. Couldn't resist the temptation and got me two pairs

What colors did you get?

I had the Paul Smith for JL purple museum in my cart (9.5) and somebody beat me to them before I checked out. That wouldn't have been you would it????:D I was considering the purple suede but they look just too purple!

 

Did you notice their shipping fee stays the same no matter how many shoes you buy? Good strategy, I was going to get one pair and thought the 40 pound shipping was kind of steep so I decided might as well get more if the shipping costs stay the same.
