    Great pics!
    Geez that pewter museum calf shade is gorgeous... It's exactly the color/finish I've been looking for. Looks like I'm going to have to make a trip to the Lobb store in NYC to try on a pair :::sigh:::

    What makes this last different from the 7000 last exactly?

    Compared to the 7000 last, the 1105 is a bit wider in the ball area of the foot, while its round toe is pointier than the 7000. I'll post side-by-side pictures later.
    C'mon man...

    Sounds like they addressed my problems with the 7000 last. Is Lobb that desperate for my money? OK, OK already! Vintage 2002s are still my favorite, but that suede dealy is changing my mind.

    You hit the nail on the head, Tom! Many have this width issue with the 7000 last. The 1105 feels very comfortable and I do not have a wide foot. I've taken the comparison shots. Gotta make'em look respectable and they'll be right up.

    Nice! I love that last pair. Thanks for posting, and please do post about your visit with Janne. That's type of content is one of the things that makes this forum great.
