    I'm looking to sell this pair of John Lobb loafers on ebay soon, and was wondering if anyone here had some expertise to answer some questions I've had about them for a while. To start, they are 12" by 4.25" and I'm wondering if there's a common size that fits them. Also I have yet to see another pair like this online anywhere, so I guess just any/all the information I could gather to pass on to a buyer would be very much appreciated.

    Ill put some better pictures up later tonight when I have my camera, not my phone.

    Thanks!

    These are bespoke, not a RTW model. They look a bit dated, probably from the 70s or so.

    More than a bit dated and ugly as sin. Do not buy.

    Those aren't attractive at all. Good luck selling them.

    +1 He's talking about how they look, not the validity of the construction.
