    Greatest of all time. Like Joe Montana (pocket QB), Jerry Rice, Steve Young (running QB), Bill Walsh...

    +1. They were also some of the most expensive SC's at nearly $2k compared to a lot of the others at $1500-$1600.

    You are missing out the 2005 two tones.

    2005 is distinctively John Lobb but can either be described as a reinterpretation of the classic balmoral oxford or that john Lobb jumped the shark. A controversial design that has been phased out.

    Beautiful shoes woolymammoth. I've been looking for a super classy black balmoral. I'm not that familiar with the new JL line. What model are they and where did you get them? Expensive I'm sure. RTW or MTM?

    I'd buy those. They're not in the must buy category like the 2009's but I wouldn't say no to them.

    Since maybe 12 years, does John Lobb (Northampton) produce annually a limited run model to coincide with October 25th, the feast day of St Crispin's (patron saint of shoemakers). That St. Crispin model (or St Crepin in French) will not be included into the standard collection. The idea is to pull out all the stops and show what can be done in shoemaking.

    Price wise they are some of the most expensive ready-to-wear shoes. The current model costs something like GBP 1050 (can't quite remember). So it will be in excess of USD 1500.
