    @arneben Lovely shoe, though I have no idea what I would teamed it with. Shape of an Oxford, look of an derby. Too casual for a suit, too serious for the trousers/jeans/polo/shirt ..

    Can I ask for the cream & wax on black misty calf? Neutral cream & black wax, or else?

    I know the gold museum calf should apply Saphir Hermes Red cream however

    You are applying the Red Cream on a Gold Museum !? [​IMG]

    Anyway, use the black cream on black misty.

    Hope some of you made a bid on the ebay reject lobbs I posted. I feel sorry for the seller. He is at massive loss with these shoes, not to mention the extra ebay 10% fee .. and he didn't have a reserve price.

    Chambord II derby brown gone for 400 USD

    New City II gone for 320 USD

    I just can't get into the Monkstraps. I almost brought some a couple of weeks ago but the buckles look so cheap.

    I like the buckles! One of the previous Lobb St Crispins had a really awesome looking buckle.

    If I didn't have a pair of EG Westminsters I'd get the William II!
    The design of that year was amazing! Earlier this week: my JL rainy day shoes: [​IMG]

    I just purchased a pair of Brentwoods in Parisian Brown Museum Calf, taking advantage of the winter sale. Hoping they fit well, as I haven't had the pleasure of visiting a store for a proper fitting. But... from the pictures the it sure looks top notch. Does anyone have any experience with this shoe and its fit? I believe its based on the 2711 last.
