My monitor shows plum museum calf. Are they actually brown? And I am not being sarcastic.

They look pretty much dark brown museum to me..

My first guess was Plum MC also. I have a couple pairs of JL in Dark Brown MC and they don't look like No Frills.

The difference between brown and plum is subtle, depending on the lighting. I think you'd need to view both side by side in person, and relatively bright outdoor lighting, to be able to tell them apart right away.

Brown on the left, plum on the right - indoor lighting at Leffot:

Wow, that's kind of strange. I had no idea they were that close.

 

Thanks for sharing Frills.

John Lobb bespoke in St James charge nearly $1,000 (including tax) just for the shoe trees!
But made to the last of your own feet, obviously..smile.gif

Yes, it is absurd. The shoes they have made me all had some minor issues but the fit has always been the best. That said, they really nickle and dime you.

You have to pay for shoe bags, trees, etc. Kind of absurd given how much more they charge than Cleverley.

By far the best shoes ever but it took me as long to save up for them as it did for them to make them!

Mind you, I'm still thinking of having another pair made next year.....they Should last a lifetime...smile.gif

Ya. That really sucked as usual bespoke package comes with trees and bags...

And JL London shoe trees are far from impressive compare to the French ones, or even Saint Crispins "lasted" trees...

I don't know - I couldn't afford handmade lasts as well!!!(so I use Woodcote which adapt to any foot)

Sounds crazy after all that outlay on boots - maybe I'll get a pair made next year for my next pair

This year I have other financial priorities..smile.gif
