    Most shoes look the same price to me as they normally are. I bought some belts from there about 2 weeks ago and they are the same price on sale as they were before? Unless they were on sale when i bought and i did not realize or it was not officially advertised as a sale

    The suede loafers all look to be about half what they were early in the week.

    Can anyone advise how the 4098 last compares to the 7000?

    Are you thinking of loafers in 4098 to loafers in 7000?

    The size and shape are similar. 4098 may be tighter on the upper back of the foot, but this can be because JL only has models in 4098 that fit lower and models in 7000 that fit higher.
    Below are pictures of black Amble in 4098 and dark brown Elm in 7000.

    I have had these Lopezes for over fifteen years. Vamp looks good considering its age...

    Yes, they do...as long as no other cobbler has touched them.

    Question about propriety. I placed an order with Bespoke England June 12, got a shipping notification June 14, saw about the sale June 17, checked and realized my package hadn't actually shipped. I sent an email requesting that, since it hasn't shipped, I get charged the sale price/refunded the difference. Is this reasonable/does anyone have a sense of whether Nick will acquiesce?

    ^ I'm not sure. I don't think the shoes actually belong to Nick, he's offering a webportal of sorts to the factory shop?

    Anyway, the croc sandals are back on deep sale/ reductions, I could have used these for a beach wedding in Koh Samui a couple of months ago, but not much use for them otherwise.

    Picked these up used but unworn in Dubai a couple weeks ago. I'm the third owner, and got the third owner pricing (2000 AED, or about $560). They were a half size large for the previous owners. Needless to say, I'm pretty happy with them.

    For those who bought or are buying from Bespoke UK website sale now, how long before you got your tracking number info?

    Its been almost 4 days since i paid and no email yet on the tracking number.

    It does take time. I never got a tracking number and then the shoes showed up. Nick gets slammed with these sales so I am sure he is processing orders

    I have only bought shoes once there and it took about a week before they shipped. Once they did got to me in 2 days.

    Last time i bought about 6 belts and they shipped in 2 days (got to me in a couple of days from there).

    So turnover time varies, and i believe the shoes go to the shop from the factory so there is some turn around time (i dont think he has thrm in store and he is acting more as a webportal for the factory) but both times i did receive my product and quickly once it actually made it out of the door.

    Thanks guys, glad to hear and also bit bout their process.

    Its been years years since i bought a pair of shows online cause i haven't had much luck in sizing.

    Taking a gamble on these boat shoes cause of the attractive pricing.
    Shipping to Asia cost 1/4 of the price of the shoe.......


    BTW just wanted to confirm, can the boat shoes be resoled?

    I bought a pair the week before the sale and got a tracking number in two days. But they still haven't shipped.
