Nope. Lovely, classic derby style. That color's going to be perfect for spring/summer.

Or both?

Linky

Both are considered excellent in this forum, but you'll see John Lobb Paris (the one own by Hermes) much more often since they have a RTW division. While John Lobb St. James in London is a bespoke-only shop.

Thank you Onix, much appreciated.

Another question - I now understand the concept of brands that size small or large. With those caveats in mind what are the general rules for sizing fit on sweaters? I'm a 44 R in suits. does that mean I size down one (42) for sweaters? Trying to see if I should buy a couple Adriano and Sons sweaters from Yoox.

Maybe it's the side view that looks blobby to me. The high vamp?

Actually, I want Ferragamo chelseas (Nigel or Flavio) but they are 800 plus. Out of my price point unfortunately. I am willing to buy some used in good condition and have been checking the bay every day now for the last month but none have come up in my size 7.5 or 8 US. I went and tried on some RM Williams due to the recs of this board and they were not sleek enough imo; am open to some C&J or JM Weston's but again price is too high or no used ones in my size have come up on the bay. That's why I was hoping someone from the board could recommend something in a similar vein to the Ferragamos new but between 300-500 dollars.

Shoes generally don't like wide angle lenses. These certainly don't.

Yep, it does look blobby. However, as NOBD said, it maybe because of the camera position. Stand far away from the object, zoom in, then take a picture, that will be more accurate proportionally.

Even if it is a blobby shoe, it looks right. It's a suede derby with a rubber sole, I'm not sure I'd want it to be too sleek. I have some black shell Alden plain-toe oxfords that are blobby as hell, and I wouldn't have them any other way!

Oh of course, blobby doesn't mean "not looking good".

I just got a vintage knit tie, and the overall length is really short, if tied to a normal length the short end only comes to a few inches long from the knot. Is this a certain style, or reason for this?

The knit ties I've seen tend to be shorter in the first place. Also, vintage ties are shorter as a whole due to several factors- one, people weren't such fatasses. You didn't need the extra length to fit around a 19" neck and drape over a spare tire. Second, the rise on trousers was higher, so you needed less tie to come to the right length right at the waistband.

Both are great shoes but I thought JLP was a bit more stylish
