    I called the Southern California store today. He said that RTW Chapels in croc run about $12,000 for any new orders. Bespoke in Croc will start at about $20,000. He did have some older Williams he can offer at the older prices of $8,500.

    But if you want RTW leather Chapels ordered in any color they are $1640 with no additional charge for special orders this week. (that almost sounds inexpensive by comparison to the crocs)

    Wow. I stand corrected about my earlier comment on Ascot Shoes ebay listing. At $12,000, I'm better off booking a plane ticket and hotel to Hawaii or Cali and just ordering bespoke Cleverley gators for way less.

    There goes my goal of getting those croc Chapels on the JL site or getting custom croc Vale's.

    The Vale, still my grail, I don't have one so I fail. [​IMG]


    Beautiful shoes, but I still have to declare you guilty of "Thread Subject Line Reading Comprehension Fail." [​IMG] / [​IMG]

    I think this in a cinnamon brown suede was perhaps the most beautiful pair I've ever seen. They brought them to a Lobb trunk show at Wilkes Bashford a few years ago. [​IMG]
    Can some PLEASE tell me which style these Lobbs are called? I love the way the straps are angle towards the back of the shoe... never mind - just went back a page and saw.. my excitement made me post too quickly.. Are these going to be "By Request" shoes? Do you guys know how much this will set someone back by?

    $1640 if you order them this week at the LA store there is no extra charge for special orders of any standard colored leathers of their models.

    They are a Chapel, made from a single piece of leather with no back seam. You pic has a stitch across the toe. Usually they are plain.

    Eff me and double eff me. Thats just insane. How did you start that conversation? Anonymously, or you called your regular guy? I bet he got a fat boner when he heard that [​IMG]

    I want those damn Chapels so bad. I hate you for starting this thread. Im not ready to drop $1640, but does anyone know somewhere these are available at a fair-substantial discount? They are like unicorns here and eBay in my size. [​IMG]

    If there's a Neiman Marcus near you start a relationship with a shoe salesman there. They'll let you know when the private night sale occurs in which you can place an order and get 25% off. They usually have them twice a year once in March-April time frame and another in Oct-Nov timeframe.

    My NM salesman has let me know twice when special order Lobbs weren't picked up and they were letting them go for half price at their sale. But, somehow they never quite get out on to the sale rack [​IMG]
