I looked online, but they didn't have the William IIs availible in my size.

 

So I contacted the NY store by phone and had them send me a pair.

 

In fact when I spoke with them, they had a couple of pairs in various styles that weren't listed on the internet.

Oh okay. I have wanted a pair of double monks for a long time now but never taking the chance. I'm kinda boring that way...

Many look so nice so I can't decide. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay?

 

Then again, they look amazing. I really love JL shoes.

The William IIs go for $1350.

 

 

You can get a pair Williams for $1175.

 

If you get them from the John Lobb store in New York they will charge you about $30 for shipping in the states.

 

The shoe trees will cost you $150, I was able to find a pair in my size at Mr Porter for $125.

Thanks for the info. Damn pretty expensive, but well worth it!

You can certainly get Double Monks for less, but these were the ones I really wanted.

 

If you buy yours from Mr Porter or Barneys you'll pay the same minus the shipping, but you may not be able to get your size and you certainly won't have as many styles or the various options John Lobb can provide.

 

If for any reason John Lobb didn't have my size they were willing to place me on the list when they recieved more stock in Apr or May.

well, i was waiting for a package...these were delivered Thursday, but the office was closed when i got home so i had to wait until friday to pick it up. Picked up an EG Cappelli square and tie from Marblehouse. this is my first cappelli tie...fantastic quality, and ties really well. If youre in the market for a great tie, check out his ebay store. shits great. Plus he's a great fella to deal with. Thanks again MB!

Needed a new home server, decided on an HP N54L, which is an outstanding little server for the money. Have already got 16gb RAM + a 240gb SSD coming for it. Should make a nice little esxi5 host with a couple of dev/test vms + plenty of home nas storage.

I can't believe we live in a day and age where you can get stuff like this for < $1K. As someone who started programming back in the late 70s on a TRS80 Model I (tape drive, 4K RAM, daisy wheel printers, etc.), it's just amazing...

Nice. I built a home server a couple years back with a whole boatload of drives in a RAID5 array. When I build my next one, will go with ZFS.

Have thought about these ready-made boxes like this, but mine does a bunch of other things as well--most notably is hooked up to the TV as an XBMC frontend.
