    The Langtons are fabulous. The pewter museum calf is indeed lovely with its variegation. Thanks for your effeorts.

    I feel a bit naughty after looking at those works of art.

    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.

    JL Brampton, Pewter Museum Calf, 1105 last
    ...

    The new Pewter Museum is a rather stunning color that looks really amazing in open sunlight. I will try to capture that effect as soon as I get the chance.


    I bought this exact model and colour myself a couple of weeks back - I agree it looks amazing in the light. And I love how it's subtle one minute and a real attention-grabber the next. I don't think I've received more compliments on a new pair of shoes. The last also happens to very comfortable for me. Top shoe, without doubt![​IMG]

    I'm not sure about the calf/suede thing, but the color of the parisian museum calf is gorgeous. I also really really like the Ardilla museum calf.

    I agree. One of my favirite Sysdoc shoes was the lizard/suede shoe he showed right before the crash.

    The last looks great. The 7000 fits me like a dream while the 8695 is completely unwearable. I will try this one the first chance that I get.

    I noticed this yesterday, in several threads. I think he's pulling a Cartman: "screw you guys, I going home." And how about new member guy pointing this out for the board. Maybe we weren't stirred up enough about it.

    probably time to revise/limit the edit feature. honestly, after a day or two, the post should get locked in and made uneditable.

    How is this statement helpful? Sysdoc took more time and energy than just about anyone to share with this Forum his deep knowledge and beautiful examples of his passion. In fact, I didn't own a single pair of John Lobbs before Sysdoc started posting on the SF, so he clearly opened a new world for me.

    I don't want to make waves; I just want to see the shoes. But I think that he who posts it should be able to taketh away--though, as mentioned, I wish he would put it back.
