    Lucky bastard [​IMG] I popped that cherry twice in one week long ago but have been in a Lobb dry spell ever since.

    Hey'O!

    Found this for a dollar! But, is it real, fake, or real fake?

    It's linen, if it matters. Bought beside a real Ferragamo tie (but I'm unsure if from the same corpse... er, 'donator').

    The tag is made well: one cannot see the red embroidery from the back side.

    Please help, SF! :D

    Even if it were fake, I'd rock that.

    Mine? lol

    Thanks! I like it myself: great for summer, and being that it's linen, it could be worn with jeans (yes, I am guilty of this).

    I honestly can take or leave the teak look usually, but that bed is absolutely beautiful.

    I'm pretty sure a cherry only gets popped once. I mean, ever. Unless somebody is lying.

    I have never found Lobb shoes. *I* am a Lobb virgin. Further, the deponent saith not.

    Never found a Lobb yet either. I developed a slight obsession with wanting to find my first Turnbull & Asser last month then found 2 new shirts sealed in packets, or so i thought, until i got home and realised they were dry cleaning packets with "sorry, we tried to remove the stains..." notes on them!
    Popped this cherry today though.

    I am quite familiar with how it works... I was merely stating that with the exception of the initial finds, the Lobb well has run dry. [​IMG]
    Again... I passed elementary biology. lol I should have worded my statement differently. (I can't believe I am having this conversation with a woman. [​IMG])
