    I must stop looking at this thread. Too many options out there, EG, Lobb, Vass, Canali, Santoni, Ralph Lauren, Carmina, C&J.... how in the world could anyone pick!!!? Edit: I've been meaning to ask this question. If I head over to the C&J Store in Manhattan.. will they have the Lowndes in stock? I'm tempted to just say screw it and pay full retail (Although it goes against everything I know about buying on deep discount on SF! [​IMG] )

    The terminology seems a bit ambiguous in this area. For example, personally I think of a 'wholecut' as a shoe made from only a single piece of leather, which means that no monkstrap is a wholecut, regardless of how plain the toe is. Also, plain-toe does more often mean no cap, as in a PTB, plain-toe blucher, which does not have a cap (or it would be a cap-toe blucher); I'm not sure if there is any separate word to refer to whether there is a medallion or not.

    Dude, that's the beauty of the Chapels (and the Jermyns)--they are wholecuts. One piece that just wraps around and buckles to itself.

    Excuse me but I need those shoes, that grain, that colour, everything, in a 9E for a friend. For what am I looking?

    It's the Edward Green Westminster, in pebble grain. I'm not sure about the last (maybe 82?).

    Sounds too sarcastic to be genuine but whatever it is, it is. Let him at least post a link to other threads if he wanted to be the least bit helpful

    Scroll down to the bottom of the page and there's a table of links to similar threads.

    there are a pair of tobacco suede Chapels in the window of the Jermyn Street Lobb (at least a few months ago). the height of frustration was that it was Sunday when i went and the store was closed.

    It looks like the unholy offspring of a JL Chapel and William. [​IMG]
