    They are all gorgeous but the Lichfield has some sexy broguing.

    With all those shoes, maybe you should be the shoe library for SF members and lend them out. [​IMG]

    Love the Beaulieu. Just look at the beautiful, subtle color contrast on the wing.

    Those are all nice! So where is the difference between the 606 and the 888 last?

    I have a distinct weakness for austerity wingtips, and the Beaulieu is beautiful.

    The 606 last is less chiseled than the 888.

    Along the same lines as the Lichfield, I'm hoping to find a pair of these on my next trip up to Northampton:

    The difference is in the price: factory rejects of the Albany - being a Handgrade model - would cost GBP 200 at the C&J factory shop, whereas factory rejects of the Westbourne should only be GBP 80-100. [​IMG]

    It's beyond jealousy at this point. Your shoe collection, and your taste, is impressive by any standards.

    I salute you, Mr. Aportnoy!
