Lovely and with daenite soles. Brilliant
i concur. pleasantly surprised with the dainite. doesnt add any heft to the look either
Puffy, lovely monks!
I see another 6.5 kin... well in EG at least. I'm UK6 in the 8000 and 337 (which runs generous for me). Our variability shows how important it is to have the opportunity to try shoes on.
thanks guys. yes Dainite is needed in a rainy place like London. don't want to be caught out in the rain and as Namor adds, does not add any unnecessary weight or nastiness to the refined look of the shoes
Nice watch sir.
Oh, and great shoes too.

thanks for all the sizing advice given by the various SF member, I decided to stick to my normal size as I was worried about the width of the shoe.
City II in action
Don't know if you guys already knew about this, but JL shoes at Harrods are pretty cheap compared to Barneys and Bergdorf when the VAT is deducted (over $500 in savings).
These beautiful monks are over $600 cheaper than NA pricing (they deduct VAT at checkout).
This is Lobb's October sole (recognisable by the hexagonal studs) which is a thinner version of the familiar Dainite sole (circular studs). The manager at Jermyn Street explained that this was intended for shoes where the full Dainite treatment would look overly "agricultural", as with these elegant black monks.
You can't go wrong with Philip II.
