    I thought I would contribute some to the thread by posting pictures of a pair of Chapels in black museum calf that I recently purchased. They are unfortunately just a tiny bit too short in size for me, so I have to sell them to someone with a pair of very lucky feet... [​IMG]

    Enjoy and have a nice weekend!

    If you're going to get prestige, then it's hard to beat Phillip II. Lots of options in the Bay Area. You can see a number of styles at Barneys, Neiman Marcus, and Wilkes. All in Union Square in SF.

    LeatherFoot, you have one of the best photograph/s I have ever seen. Way they manage to show the shoe's true color and luxury feeling is outstanding.

    To steal a line from a Facebook respondent: "What shoes?" [​IMG] Arne is pretty brilliant with a camera. He can even make me look good. Though in this case, the subject needs no help whatsoever.

    I do have a Phillip II and others on sale if you're still looking for Lobbs. Not sure what your size is:

    I have a pair of John Lobb bootees which I had made, I'm having a pair in another leather made, and they're the most comfortable footwear I've ever owned.
    I just hope that I can afford their shoes for the rest of my life, because once bitten, there's no turning back![ATTACHMENT=7884]image.jpg (1,052k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]

    +1 for Wilkes. Their sales guys really know how Lobbs fit last-wise. I've found Nieman's to be more hit and miss.

    How is it possible that this is your first pair of black shoes?
    I am not familiar with your personal affairs but have seen enough of you around the forums and maybe B&S to think you have a well stocked wardrobe and shoe closet. But, apparently, your game was a bit short of top shelf. It is great that you have filled this massive hole and with a fine pair of shoes. Well done.

    Also, who is this RD who you are thanking for giving you these shoes? I need to contact them as I would like a pair or three as well.

    Taking photos of pewter museum calf is damn tricky, but I had to do so as I'm selling these, so figured I'd combine a little blatant shilling with some sharing of the snaps. Sorry to see these shoes go, but they just don't fit me particularly well so have to be sold. When I first bought them, they were a fairly pale but variegated grey, but over time & polishing, became the somewhat brown-tinged grey below:

    Thank you.

    I've had EG Chelsea,C&J Hallam, both are long gone. I am not a fan of black shoes. I do need to get a captoe, though.
