    New arrivals. John Lobb Chambord in dark brown meleze buffalo ( soft pebblegrain). nice sturdy soles on these. Problem is, I also have a pair of EG pingrain Dover. Two similar, yet different shoes, as the Dover is on the 82 last with a leather sole, while the Lobb is on the 8695 with the dainite. Hard to justify so much cash wrapped up here, so one may go up for sale, I just don't know how to choose! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] vs. the EG Dover recently acquired, argh!! [​IMG]

    Both are stunning. Although I am a Lobb freak, I give the edge to the Dover. Just something about it! Also, iirc, the Lobb is from the classic line not the prestige so that makes the decision much easier. This time, EG wins.

    IMO, EG > Lobb Classic. Lobb Prestige > EG. EG TD > *

    Thanks, I think it may come down to the functionality. The Lobbs are a great crossover that I can wear casually with jeans, khakis, for bad weather and even ge away with a suit.
    The sleekness of the EG 82 might limit the casual aspect of them.

    Ha, not even close. I am more along the lines of a binger/purger.

    Did you find you had to size up in these? I found them to run very small / narrow.

    A gaping, black suede shaped gap in my collection has been filled!

    The shoes look good, and the heel doesn 't appear to be too high as I've seen on other TF shoes. I like them.

    In London today, so picked up my Greshams kopped during the sale a few weeks back. Wore them out the door and headed straight to Cleverley. Amazingly, they still had a few Anthony Cleverleys on sale in my size, was tempted by a 3-eyelet derby but passed. I'm really, really digging the Greshams... may have to double dip in another color.

    btw, also spent 4 hours at the AS factory with Chay. Will post pictorial on the AS thread....
