    The Vass in shell are just stellar. The leather is so rich and will only get better.

    WOW - SERIOUSLY?
    The Lowndes is most likely the least expensive Shoe I have (and in my top 3) - i love the look of it on, the feel and comfort, even after 12 hours of wear.
    I also love the fact that i beat the shit out of them and they just keep getting better and better. Just sayin'... + The added bonus that you can wear em' with a Suit or Jeans on the weekend.

    Those Sids are made by C & J, aren't they? They are definitely a well made shoe.

    These are a different last than the Lowndes. Probably only available through Sids.

    they look like 337 last Reptons, which is not on the C&J UK order book. Probably C&J EU/Japan model.

    ^^^^^^^^ ah, thank you for clearing that up ^^^^^^^^^

    I've handled them in the store and I remember they were good quality English benchgrade shoes.

    As I mentioned a few pages back, they're fantastic. Great leather, great color, very comfortable. . . shopped around a few before finally deciding on these.

    Also, Gdot, we're trying (half-assedly) to get an Atlanta meet up going. Check out the thread if interested.
