    V...the bespoke shoe is by Aubercy and unfortunately, it's the only image that I have.

    They will be mine.

    Now that the RTW is dealt with, the bespoke must be. Who do I know in Paris who would encourage such a purchase?? Paging "Catman".

    What are those John Lobb loafers? They may be the best loafers I've ever seen.

    Yes, specifically John Lobb Paris; and I agree, possibly the most elegant pair of loafers I've laid eyes on.[​IMG]

    I wish, I'm in the process of getting on his schedule. Hard because I don't speak Japanese. Looking to score two pairs, one in a black suede, another in dark brown.

    koji



    Thanks, Koji, but maybe I didn't make myself clear. Is there a model name? Are they still in production? Where can I find them?

    Thanks!

    I posted these about two years ago on the Buying and Selling Forum... I ended up shortchanging myself around $500 less than what I could have scored on Ebay...

    The bevelled soles on these is amazing...


    [​IMG]

    They are some of the nicest shoes I've ever handled in person. My other favorite would be the Lobb Jermyn II and Edward Green Grant (single monk) with the floating medallion for RLPL. In the stratospheric range, the Santoni Special Edition shoes and the shell cordo Kiton blucher at the NYC store are among my favorites.

    I have a pair of Lattanzis, which have a great two-tone bevelled sole. The waist is colored in a dark brown with a sort of violin back design although it doesn't have the nailed SL initials.

    koji



    Thanks, Koji. I was afraid you'd say that. I was in the JL store this afternoon, but none of their RTW loafers quite compared... [​IMG]

    I did, however, take a shine to the JL Edward "loafer." If I can thread-jack for a second, can someone explain to me why a ($1300!) shoe like that would be unlined? What is the advantage?
