Question - is the recrafting of a pair of shoes always carried out by the same method by which it is constructed ? So a pair of handwelted vass can only be resoled via hand welting and not by GW or blake stiching?
Yes, its the one on the far right. The order from the left is Vass K (42), Carmina Simpson (8 UK), Vass U (42), G&G MH71 (8.5) and Vass S (42). It's the longest of the lot albeit just slightly longer than the other Vass but noticeably longer than the G&G. Slightly lower instep than the other Vass so a get a small V which I didnt get on the U. It has a less wider vamp vs the U which I actually like as I have thin feet and overall I find the fit better than the U. The room...
  S Last with some chiseled friends. My initially reaction when I saw its pics was that it was similar to TG73 / MH71. Now that I have it in person, it seems pretty different. It reminds me of a very specific last from another maker which I dont own - does anyone think it looks like the C&J 348?
For those who have knowledge of the Enzo lasts, is any of them "elongated" similar to G&G or Vass (U / K) ? Particularly interested in the 062 but have little way of judging based on pictures alone.   I have a slight distaste for "compact" lasts.
Mine as well - the courtenay on the 363 with some friends        
If its a bespoke suit, then 2 pairs is a no-brainer. I got one with front pleats and one without to make sure I am covered for changing fashion trends lol.
 I am at the upper end of that scale at UK8 so hopefully the issue is less amplified for me than what it would be for someone ordering a UK6 (ie someone ordering EU40). I ordered EU42 on Reszo's recommendation.
 This worries me - I faced the same dilemna and went for the half size bigger rather than the smaller as I was worried I wont have enough length. I have 2 incoming in around 2 weeks time in the U and K last.
Dont disagree with any of that but several of C&J lasts strike an optimal balance between classic and contemporary. The 363 last is just perfection.
I have 2 aldwych. One in black with a danite sole and a brown with a leather sole. I have had both for around 7 months.   Somehow the black pair has creased much better and fits very comfortably. I quite like it as a work related travel shoe - I can wear it on consecutive days without guilt and don't mind it getting scuffed up during uncomfortable economy class travel.   The brown pair hurts my heels and the right shoe has not creased well. The leather around the...
