    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Those shoe trees are atypical for a RTW line, that's what made me think they may be a bespoke pair.

    Those are bespoke. It is based on the '98 St Crepin but these are a bespoke version.

    Good eye Nikola

    Most of the Lobb shoes look so refined that in my untrained eye I cant tell if there are bespoke or not. Did not even notice the shoe trees. He could have put an apple there and I would not have noticed because I was looking at the shoes

    Truly amazing. Something was telling me they are not just another ready to wear pair. Congrat!

    So, pretty much everyone sizes down by .5 going from 7000 to William right? Several pairs in different colors calling my name for a very attractive price on sale over at Borghini Classic. I could go by the Lobb NYC store, but I would feel like a douche trying on without intending to buy.

    I didn't size mine down. I tried a .5 down on williams but I can only use the last buckle hole. And was too tight. I wear the same size as all my last.

    The Luffield changed the name to Archer. I have both shoes and the stitching on the archer looks more refined beside that 100% identical on the same 8000 last.

    The archer is similar to the 2013 right? But on the 8000... Lines looked a little different but similar.
