I recently got model 114 in the 609 colour and found them great under grey flanel, combined with a blue sports coat. In my view they're formal enough, but can also be worn under jeans for instance; something I won't do with my black cap toes.
I have been told that the 358 has een little more room in the front than the 348. I have 2 pairs of monks in 358 and 4 pairs 348, all with laces. Reckon that gives a different 'feel' as well.
I tend to agree that the picture indicates the opposite..
Ordered a shirt 2 weeks ago when I was in Florence. The shirt will be sent over to me by mid September due vacation. I have ordered Thomas Mason fabric, choice was more than abundant. Looking forward receiving the shirt, upon which will post some pics.
Always appreciate the discussion about the various lasts. For me, being a very modest UK6-6.5, a more pointy last, like the 348 realy works. On handgrades this is more likely the 358. Got both.
From the above picture, the 337 appears nice as well.
