    Not pricey if you think it as a bespoke furniture project with a long standing English master - top quality wood, involving several intricate joining parts, waxed polished, fitting to exact measurements in a specific custom shape, with margin of error in mm's or less, and risk of breakage/error/rework in manufacturing process. And you need just one quantity.

    they are also useful in case you have to club anyone to death...perhaps in a debate with your opponent after a polo match.

    If you like the idea of wearing someone else's shoes go for it. For mine, it's only slightly better than wearing someone else's underwear.

    Does anyone have experience with the Philip I? How old are they? I see they are on 8695 last. Which I believe came before the 7000 last.

    Thanks in advance.

    Pretty ugly IMO, similar to all those European/English inbreds.

    Hey guys,

    As an FYI, leatherfoot has Lobbs cheaper than Barneys (about 10-12% cheaper when you account for the currency difference).
