    Now I know how you can afford so many styles of all those fine shoes! You buy only one of each shoe. [​IMG]

    All of them are marvelous. Congratulations on more great selections.

    All I can say is that I'm very envious of you, Mr. Portnoy. I truely love the EG Southwold in maple and the JL Vintage 2005.

    aportnoy, you are assembling a very impressive collection of shoes. How do you find the time to wear all of them? Do you change shoes a few times a day?

    P - are you buying the Lobbs on Ebay or on Madison or somewhere else? I'm trying to find a good source for Lobbs at discount, and Ebay rarely has my size.

    Thanks, I really want the 2002s in black. They fit really well - the 2-eye derby works well. The Lobb store "located" 2 pairs for me @ $1100 each [​IMG]
    (MSRP was $1050 way back when)
