Its been a long wait for you Nikola.  I hope the fit is great so you can really enjoy them (no other RTW monks can beat them!!).  Beautiful shoes and beautiful box.  Congrats and wear them in good health.

Thanks @Zapasman . The fit is great! I would strongly recommend anyone considering the William to go with a half size smaller size compared to their usual John Lobb size.

I have a question when it comes to suede..  I know leather quality from John Lobb feels better than say my Crockett and jones,  My Lobbs feel smooth and silky while my C&J feels thicker and more rugged.  Can you notice the same with suede?  Are suede's made differently Like Lobb, Edward Green, and C&J?

Others might disagree, but I've always felt that that the difference between low-end and high-end shoes is much smaller in suede than in regular calf. I have suede monks by Loake 1880 and some suede chukkas by John White which I think are every bit as good as those by higher tier makers. They get a lot of use. I don't see many ways in which a top tier maker can demonstrate its prowess in suede. Brogueing and unusual stitching (e.g. Dover), perhaps, but there's not much that can be said or done about the actual surface of the leather.

I think JL produces top notch suede, followed closely by EG. Also the higher tier makers tend to produce more desirable colour suede.

I think @Jazzmenco previously posted a very nice pair. Tobacco suede from EG is also one of my favourites

I agree with you about the difference far less noticeable than regular calf but if there's a RTW maker where you can feel the difference is JL.
JL suede is the nicest I've ever handled, simply sublime quality.

EG suede is pretty comparable with C&J and others, IME JL is definitely nicer.

Could be a light playing games, but they seem a bit thirsty for some coat of cream&wax.
