Does anybody have a side by side comparison of plum museum calf and burgundy from JLP? I have seen pics in the shoe pictorial but not these two colors side by side.

I have seen both several times. Get the plum - it is fan-tas-tic. I have pics up somewhere on SF.

EDIT: Here:

Thanks for posting this. I already have the PhillipII in plum museum on order. I was just wondering if I should get burgundy calf as well. How close are they in color? Is JLPs burgundy more oxblood or something else?

Not really an oxblood, but a much darker / richer / redder shade (if that makes any sense). It looks good but not as nice as the mottled plum color.

I want your shoe budget X. ET, I have the Phillip IIs in chestnut museum and could not have been happier with them until I saw your plums.

These are my Luffield's in Plum Museum. They don't have such distinct mottling as the other shoes posted. Great colour though!

Haha! I want aportnoy's shoe budget


I am in the process of making the Phillip II my "one-shoe" that I wear with suits. Dark brown museum, Parisian brown museum, chestnut museum, plum museum, black, dark oak, dark brown and maybe burgundy are the colors I am going for. The 7000 last fits me better than anything. It is the only last that allows me to wear 3 different types of orthotics and still be comfortable.

I am really considering the red museum as well. Not sure how it will match-up with a navy suit...

edit***off hand does anybody know what color Lobb has that is closest to oxblood?
