    Using a single piece of leather really makes 2010 stand out. More out of shoemaking ability than design.

    The double monk split-toe Vintage 2000 is probably my favorite.

    2009. I had them bespoke.

    2010, 2001, and 1999 are very nice as well.

    It was all down hill since 2011 and the new design direction is not inspirational.

    I only have the 2007. Wore them yesterday. My fave and "the one that got away" was the 2009 in (I believe) plum or cabernet

    I think the 2011 and 2012 looks nice, why the hate?

    I have the 2011. It's okay but it's nothing special and reminds me of the Becketts. Only reason why I bought the 2011 was because I was already going to buy the Becketts and decided to buy the 2011. I don't like the 2012 because I'm not a fan of boots.

    Not hating, just pointing out that their design is not inspirational.

    Three shades of black. Black purple, black brown, and black red. With their respective fancy names. Cabernet and something

    Looks very unique to say the least. The only way to get these now are bespoke now right; since they were limited edition.

    Just when I thought to sell my black pair of Lopez to finance a pair in a Plum Museum, they appeared at Mr. Porter.

    Looking real good, I'm just not sure about the soles. Does anyone have the loafers with a dainite like soles? They may have been designed for a bad weather, thus the hard rubber, just not sure if they look out of place on a Lopez.

    I have it in the Midnight Merlot (I think it's called). The coloured laces broke and I've been trying in all branches of JL that I wander into during my travels but noone has the replacements, so I've got a burgundy pair bought from a non JL shop
