    I agree. Especially the finish on the pair on the extreme right. Nice mottled antiquing.

    Thanks guys, just updated the bottom picture with the shoe details. The Lanston and Woodcote are mine and I'm selling the 10.5E Philip II's and 7E Oakley's :) thought it was my one and only chance to do a group Lobb photo.

    My favorite shoe. I have the chestnut museum calf. I bought them for about 60% off a couple of years ago on B&S. :slayer:

    Edward Green Dover, Antique Dark Oak, 888 last.

    From Brooks Brothers, no less.

    I also ordered the EG Chelsea suede captoe. It is on the 82, and is fugly in real life, so it's going back. For once the BB website makes something look better than it does when you actually see it in person.

    The Chelseas are a muddy dark brown/grey color that is not attractive. It looks much worse than the rich brown online. The suede quality is surprisingly mediocre (short nap, almost no movement), and worst of all they made my feet look like that of a mini Keebler elf, and I don't think I have a small foot (9-9.5 on the wide side). Both the Chelseas and Dovers are E width, 9/9.5.


    HAI! E-mail coming.

    Radica from Ilcea- an Italian tannery. Aniline calf with hand 'padding' for the mottled effect.
    Martegani uses it; AS too.
