    Here is the time schedule of John Lobb Paris. Not sure whether Lobb looked over this though.

    Field boots and broguing? What next -- fused collars and cemented soles?

    Suede Japanese bespoke Norwegian-stitched Chelsea boots on my feet make my cipher complete.

    About 30% I think. I heard the selection of EG and C&J are quite good this time around.

    Just received my test shoes from Marquess. A few adjustment and the fit will be perfect. Still considering a few details.

    Will upload a couple soon. The toe is not done yet though. Won't be black like test shoes either. Fit is great, but might be a bit too roomy over the vamp. Will have to get that trimmed a little.

    The current toe really is brute. This fitting shoe looks like a normal vass shoe, and in that aspect I find it quite amazing.

    That sole`s shape is lovely indeed. Is that a Classic round toe? I assume the last is `twisted` in an English way?

    If I recall right, the fitting shoe is complete with shanks, heel, stiffeners, leather sole etc... Might as well keep them as an extra pair (and spare them from being cut up) :)

    Thanks NC and ThinkDerm

    It will be a Marquess Round Toe, but he did not put much work to the toe on the trial pair. I like the waist a lot too, and the comfort is immense

    I have to say, I was a bit underwhelmed by Isetan this time. Only a few EGs, and not much else in the prestige section at all.

    I did manage to load up on Borrelli shirts though, so I can't complain!

    That's excellent news - I'm glad that you found some Borrelli that fit you.

    That's decidedly not excellent news!
