    My first Lobb's:

    Is that the Towcester? If so, I have them in that color and they are one of my favorites. Nice.

    Not to be repetitive, but those are really, really awesome shoes.

    They are the Brackley. Is Towcester an oxford or derby?

    Bespoke loafers a few days before getting finished.
    I think these have potential to become the godfather pair for all band-aid coloured shoes (mustard suede sounds rather like a swedish dish anyway).

    That might be "buttercup" or even "peanut brittle." Really.

    This is a Berluti photograph.

    Yes, Calogero told me about that picture, but I dont remember the story behind it.
    They are good friends with some pretty important people in the fashion business, I think a Japanese journaliste who also frequently writes for the Rake had something to do with that photo.


    Oh, if you're so much the avenger of the shoe making scene, did you ever talk with Silvano Lattanzi about Berluti?

    Spoo - your Towcester's are closed balmorals, Jreigen's Brackley's which are open bluchers.

    Both are awesome
