    I thought it was black purple, black blue, and black grey. I've only seen pictures of the black purple one. The other 2 colors I've only seen on the JL website back in the day. I've never seen them out in the wild. I wish I would've bought the black blue one instead of the black purple.

    Glad to hear, thebeebs.

    Mr. Porter just got a variety of JL models, all of which have the rubber -dainite- like soles and some nice choice of colors. In Europe, the time already is starting to be a bit harsh for the loafers, so I'm not sure I would wear the Lopez even with a rubber sole. This time of the year requires some nice chukka boots or derby/double monk shoes, IMO..

    Anyway, here's a nice Journal from Mr. Porter about their JL choice for autumn days ..

    The former, when they still used dovetail heels. Oldie but goodie.

    It is amazing how much better the welt stitching is on this pair compared to newer models.

    I think this calls for a @bengal-stripe ..

    As far as I learned from him these truly are a bespoke shoes, made in UK. I had a opportunity to purchase the similar one over the ebay months ago, however, seller stated they are UK9, even though there were no size written anywhere being they are bespoke, and the measures he took with the ruler were way off John Lobb RTW line size 9 he was claiming. So I skip on those. They were dirty cheap. Oxfords. Black. Completely unworn for 340 GBP.

    *Can anyone suggest what would be the best cream for Plum Museum Calf?

    Saphir Burgundy or Saphir Hermes Red? Will burgundy kill/cover the reddish hoes in Plum Museum?

    On Museum Calf, I only use neutral creme and neutral polish.
