    i saw those at the Rue de Faubourg store earlier this year - they are nice indeed. how did you figure out that they were Lobbs? made in England?

    ^Spoo, I was actually going to ask if those were even welted -- but if they are Lobbs then I can beleive that.

    [​IMG] yeah.. that pair of Aldens from a few weeks back that you helped me identify was my first - and those are some serious ass welts - coming from someone who has sleek last syndrome!

    I don't think they are welted. Not even bespoke welts are cut that close to the uppers.

    Last week I received, after what seemed like ages, my 2 new pairs of shoes I'd ordered from Silvestro (Benson's). Guess once you've placed an order for something nice, you get so excited and impatient that weeks seem like months [​IMG]

    The shoes look awesome, and are very comfortable - nice fit. I especially love the Burgundy colour that Paolo managed to attain, not to mention the excellent workmanship and beautiful finish.

    Few details about the shoes:
    • Shoe construction - Blake+Rapid
    • Calf leather
    • Hand coloured
    I've attached below some pics of my latest addition to my recent addiction (shoes!). I think the pictures speak for themselves.

    • Model Pirandello in Burgundy
    • Model Macchiavelli 3 in Antique Yellow
    I was very particular about the shade of Burgundy, and sent Paolo a picture with the colour I was looking for. All I can say is that I'm extremely pleased with the results. Excellent service too, I must add.

    Don't think it'll be long before I place my next order, perhaps the model Petrarca in Antique Orange.

    If they're Hermes branded, then they're not made by Lobb.
