    Anyone have this model (William in Plum)? The website says purple, but a CS rep. tells me it is officially plum.

    If yes, observations/thoughts on color, versatility, etc.?

    Thanks.

    Your link directed me to the page with Editor's Note: "This version comes in undeniably suave plum-coloured leather and is finished with golden buckles, all beautifully crafted in the brand's Northampton factory."

    Yep - I realize they are plum. Just wondering if anyone has these them, and, if so, their thoughts on them. Thanks.

    The heel top-lift, incorporating the JL logo, was introduced maybe eight or nine years ago.

    Yes, but not as ostentatious as some other years model as well.

    John Lobb 1996 to 2001, 2009 and 2010 are best of all limited edition models. I have a pair in the making utilizing the 2009 idea.
