I'm very much looking forward to pics of this last - is he going to send you interim pics as he did for angelicboris?

I requested pics of the process so I'd like to think so. I just placed the order the other day so I'm sure it won't get started for a little bit. I'll post pics as I recieve stuff!

Cliff just sent me some teaser pics. Apologies for the small size, as this is what he sent me.

Nice. Those trees look significantly shorter than the lasts; doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose of lasted trees?

They do look shorter, but I'm not sure if it's just due to the angle the photo was taken at. Cliff didn't have a last in my size, so he had to get a pair made. I'm guessing the lasted trees would have been made at the same time.

Cliff must be following this thread or read your mind Orgetorix. He just sent me these pics of the last and trees.

fcuknu - I'll be getting a pair of boots on the chisel last similar to the 888 made up. There will be a few minor alterations to make them look a bit more like the JL 8000. I'll post pics letting you know how they turn out...

I wonder if he could do higher heels like in Vass and G&G; it seems to make the shoe much more elegant.

I ordered a pair of balmoral boots in US12D in the squared last...some use this term interchangeably with "chiseled" last but with me squared and chiseled are 2 different things

A last can have both a squared front and be chiseled. Those who have bespoke Cleverley's or Fosters tend to get the chiseled front.

His description was that is was a squared last similar to EG's 888.
