    He's not my size either, Drat!!!!!


    I think I like the one with the broguing more, but the one without aint no slouch either.

    Conflicted between the above 2 pairs... thinking of letting one of them go.

    Keep them both...I would change the laces on the EG and they are good to go.

    I would have the JL adelaides re-colored...maybe by one of those shoe painter types where you mail them the shoes and tell them what color you want...

    It is St James!

    As soon as they're ready, I'll post pics!

    If I can afford an alligator pair in navy I might do that as well next year

    It appears to be JLP's Philip II model in a dark brown.

    Leffot has them in Dark Brown Museum, they look similar, but hard to tell with the lighting.

    Looks bespoke, the trees also seem bespoke Does not look like Philips, Philips have brogueing on quarters as well similar to that on toe cap

    Those boot trees are another ball game. Even more expensive than their standard shoe trees. Very nice though.

    Pricy would be an understatement.

    @goodlensboy is right. Philips have brogueing on quarters. So definitely not them. I think he and and chogall are right. They are bespoke. I just copy pasted the photo to google and appears they only trow them in for marketing purposes upon advertising their Accessories for AW14.

    Philipp II would look closest to these, but also too pointy. Shame.
