Rnoldh, I was about to take you off my Christmas card list but now after reading your latest post I just realized something. Nowhere in the auction does it say you are getting 5 pairs of shoes, just a grab bag of shoes. All pics are of single shoes. You are probably right, it wouldn;t surprise me if that is what they are selling. I have a much higher snipe in, but I am going to lower it drastically to compensate for that unknown risk. Keep in mind that these guys had a pair of Berluti's that they sold and they regularly sell Tyrwhitts so if they know to put the Berlutti's and Tywhitts in their own auctions and with the shoe brand prominently displayed, it is rather fishy that these Lobbs are in a grab bag and no brand mentioned.
All that being said, I am not invitingyou to the family barbeque this year
P.S. the light and dark brown lace ups are definitely JL.
Edit: Actually, I'm completely coming out of this auction. I have a really stong feeling that they are selling 5 single shoes. Thanks rnoldh, you just saved me 2 bills.
