1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    I have been unsuccessful in finding RTW John Lobb's in wide sizes. Is there any way to find wide sized JL's, without going MTO or bespoke?

    I really don't know. They just break-in in such a fantastic way. I end up loving them the more I wear them. Something about how it all molds around your foot over time. My partner has a pair of Philip II in museum calf. He wasn't sure at first. Now he can't believe how they feel on his feet. Loves 'em.

    Not my shoes, but I liked them enough to save photos.

    Check my tumblr. Will upload last comparison when I have time.

    Generally speaking, loafer last for Lopez runs wide and deep at the heel and slightly wider than 7000/8000, which have the same width. 7000/8000 runs tolerable narrow and much more narrower/noticeable in cap toes

    Nice collection. Love JL 2009 and plan to get an bespoke pair with pattern switch inside out so the balmoral line is inside/inward facing.

    I love the 7000 last as a skinny foot myself, but it does tend to have plenty of width around the ball area before and abrupt narrowing. The 8000 tends to more roundness. The 1105 last is similar to the 7000 but with less aggressive transitions, for lack of a better descriptor. It's billed as the "new" 7000.

    I only have cap toes, so I couldn't comment on any others.
