    Barney's and Neiman don't stock EE width so you would have to go SCP to check them out.

    What is SCP, if i could ask?

    I'm always looking for vendors that carry wide sizes.

    Call up the factory direct - they will have lots of Rejects and Sub-standard shoes from £500 to £650 - some in EE's

    Typically in the past I have worn a lot of Dexter and State Street, but had some foot problems a few weeks ago so I have been trying to wear a much better quality of shoe. Never heard of John Lobb, however I will put them under consideration for future shoe buys now that I have read a bit about them here.

    You won't be disappointed with JL.

    That's correct - heel been replaced...as all JL heel has a logo looking like the "JL" initial.

    All John Lobb rejects or factory second should be stamped with: R.
    There one ebay seller I think Elite Forum (Sausages234) saying the R stamp means "Rare"
    which is quite deceiving....

    The S stamps means SALE - previously sale item....

    JL introduced that particular top lift maybe ten years ago. Up to then, they had used a standard top lift with a dovetailed rubber inset.

    Pardon my poor photography skill using iPhone 4s. This is a pair of FUCKING AMAZING JLP Bespoke sample I saw. Blind welted all the way around with stiffeners around the sides. The only improvements I could think of are 1) gaudy fiddleback waist (already beveled) and 2) cuban heels. But I am pretty sure those improvements I mentioned won't make this pair any better.

    Here we go folks, my latest pair of Lobb's - measured and ordered end of February and arrived Thursday last week.

    These shoes are complete tits and while things don't make me happy, these shoes do make me smile.

    I'll try do a group shot of my collection.
