    I'd like it if you would gather them all in one place and take a picture of them. Love to see the whole collection at once.

    Nice. I like the look of the 4800 last. Do they have many on that last in the Madison Ave. store?

    Fantastic as always. I pronounce the JL Sandon and the EG/PL Grant as my personal winners for the week. [​IMG]

    Thanks as always for the kind words guys, I do appreciate it. I will try to accomodate with a family portarit of the entire collection but I need to find a time that my three year old is engaged outside of the house or it will impossible.[​IMG]

    Bill, I try not to count as it provide empirical evidence of my condition.[​IMG]

    Matt, the 4800 last is a rare breed. The Sandon came from the London JL Store as a quasi-special order and the Chelmer came via a European seller on Ebay. NY JL does not have any 4800 last models in stock.[​IMG]

    I think they're starting to get here. There were several 4800 models at BG this weekend, both on shelves and on the trunk show table. I personally immediately felt a strong dislike for the last when seen at BG. I thought it was not Lobb material. [​IMG] JMO

    Thanks Foxx, much appreciated. I have seen a C&J Chelsea version but never an EG model for RLPL. But there always is the EG Newmarket.[​IMG]
