The Kempton is a short last (026) while the Pimlico last (Capital) is a somewhat elongated last. Last 026 doesn't fit me well,too short in my regular size 8 and too wide in size 8.5, while the Capital last is a good fit in size 8 for me.
Hey NOBD, how are the boots? Can you give us your first hand experiences on the leather quality and fit? I'm also interested to find out how the quality of the insole is, is it real leather or leatherboard?
I also went to Vass, Buday and Rozsnyai. I was surprised how small the old Vass store is and how little they have on display. Their staff (two middle-aged females in my case) were very friendly.
Of the 3 mentioned makers Rozsnyai's shoes appealed to me the most style-wise. Quality wise Vass looked to have better calf leather than the other two makers. I ended up empty handed, I guess I'm more appreciative of Northampton made shoes.
