Possibly a knockoff from the Far East?

It's actually a stock model called the ludlow. JL hasn't made it for years though.

Woodcote looks awesome. Might have to cross the Beaulieu off my kop list and get those instead
post #323 of 1445
If you can get the woodcote for the same price as the beaulie than go for it. The woodcote is impressive considering it simple design - lines are far more appealing IMO. And this coming from someone who would take a EG over JL 9/10 times

Almost bought these in a red (and I mean RED) but decided it would have been way too much for my line of work. They did have them in a medium brown that I almost walked out with.

HRoi: thought about it but for me, the Beaulieu is just more traditional. The lines of the Westcote and the 4 eyelets make it more modern looking whereas the Beaulieu are more classic (not to mention EG's burnishing).

Did you try going to the JP factory store? I'm wondering what the selection is like with the nice Ilcea leather shoes. smile.gif

The first pair is the Vale on the 8000 last.

How much was the red? If its a good price, is suggest throwing some black polish on it. Would look great. Wouldn't recommend it for the faint of heart though..
post #327 of 1445
If I remember around $1K on sale. I thought about darkening it but it's made out of box calf which would probably take dye much better than polish. It was pretty red (like Ferrari red) so it would have been a lot of work. I also just picked up the AS Moores in cherry and that was pretty red already.

Still want a pair of Chapel in the Ilcea though... maybe at the factory store...

I've got a pair of Chapels due in at the end of this month in New Gold Museum...can't wait until they arrive.

8000 last might be my favorite
post #330 of 1445
8000 is easily my favorite and fits me the best of all my shoes across the board...with the possible exception of my SC's. Oh, and after I posted my last response I happened to get an email from JL telling me my Chapels are early to arrive next week! It's awesome to have my first MTO show up early!
