    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.
