    Great pictures and a very big thank you ...I 'm now torn between the Becketts model and the vintage 2006....
    I have received the leather sample for the Pewter Museum patina which is absolutely stunning (a greyish brown) but i do not know the Deep grey lord patina....
    They're also offering a treacle finish...Love the name....
    I'm going to have a chat with them and report my findings...
    My wife is going to slaughter me if she finds the credit card receipts....
    Any good excuses to feed her in case of an emergency?

    They are very sleek in person, so I'm told.

    First vintage that does nothing for me [​IMG]
    And strangely enough, I think I like the black one better than the brown...

    I like 'em, though the toe is a bit long for my taste.

    I agree. I like the black significantly more, at least on first blush. Certain styles just seem made for black, and this might be one of them.

    "I'm the man of the house and I will buy what I please!"

    For maximum effect you must follow that by stomping your foot a few times and weeping at the top of your voice [​IMG]

    A little underwhelming but I think I am just used to all the breathtaking Lobb photos I have seen here.

    Anyone else get the feeling that one day in the future Sotheby's will hold an auction of Andrew's shoe collection complete with full color books ala the Duke of Windsor estate?

    It will sell for an amount equal to the GDP of a small country. [​IMG]

    They say that, "If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it." Well, I'm quite certain I can't afford these but please tell me the price!
