    I'm considering getting a pair of Lobb Paris shoes, either the Jermyn II or the double monkstrap (maybe the William?).

    Does anyone know where to find good pictures of these shoes (in different colors if possible)? Also, how do these shoes typically fit? I wear a 9.5D pretty reliably (RLPL/EG, Alden, C&J).

    Thanks.

    I can't remember the last # on the William (96XX?). I know its in the 9000 series. Regardless of the exact serial number, I suggest trying on both shoes in a B&M store before making a purchase. I really liked the styling of the William until I saw them on my feet--the width of the double monk overwhelmed my smallish foot (7E), and the instep was much too high. The Derwent, a similar double-monk from the JL Paris line, fits like a dream. FWIW, I suggest trying on one whole size smaller than your American fitting (e.g. 8.5E in the William) for starters.

    I haven't had much experience with the Jermyn II other than to admire their beauty and gawk at the price tag ($1100+).
