Just wore my new Lobbs for the first time today with a gray Oxxford suit. In the box these shoes appear to be almost black. Much different when worn with gray trousers or suit.

Worn with the gray suit the subtle gray color of the shoes comes out and they are spectacular. I did not realize how great these shoes are until I wore them with the gray suit today.

We're talking about the home of shoe porn, remember?

When I first saw these I wondered but they are definitely growing on me and may be most spectacular in person.

I think there is a pretty good photo on the shoe pictorial thread now.

I recall you said these were about $1200 from the London store.

How much is shipping and insurance?

Those shoes are gorgeous. I don't know what it's called, but the faint capped toe affect is really attractive. I like it much more than the (conservative) standard capped toe.

W. O. W. !! (with approximately four syllables).

I'm sure the picture doesn't even do it justice, too. Nice get. Wear them in good health.

I wanted to buy them ,went to London Jermyn street and left with a pair of GarnierII in plum museum and a pair of Becketts in dark brown museum...
I personally find them very classic and quite boring and i'm quite disappointed by the design...
The lines of the vintage 2004 and 2005 was purer ...

As owner of both the shoes you opted for, I say well done! The Garnier II in plum is a real beauty!
