I have an appointment for measurements at Spring Line next week, I'll be visiting some factory shops as well. With a rental car, I can try and visit some factories that are further away from the centre of Northampton. I'll report back here when I return.

Borelli...can you inquire about their availability to make Austrian style lasts

By Austrian...I mean Budapester raised toe box style as made by Vass. Springline sent me a weak picture of such an "Austrian" style last.

If possible, can take better pics of this last shape to share with us?

Sure, I'll take a camera with me.

I'm back from Northampton, I'll write about my experience this week. I guess a separate topic would be best. I will talk about factory shops, bespoke last measuring and a factory tour I got at AS.
I have made several pictures, also of the Budapester last you asked for Michael Ay329.

Many thanks Borelli - looking forward to your report!

made by cliff? those are probably his best yet.

how is the fit? did you use your own last, or did you have a springline last made?
post #686 of 843
Used a stock last, not from springline or otherwise specific to my foot in any way. The choice was made based on a discussion regarding my fit in various Northampton brands and is as good as I have ever achieved (having never purchased bespoke!). They're going to see most use with my morning coat, rather than at the office...!

Well, they're just wonderful. I can't wait to get photos of my pair that should be ready in about a month. The suede and calf are just wonderful.

Incidentally, is this now the de facto Cliff Roberts thread, or is this just for Bal boots?

Enjoy your boots!

How were you able to communicate your size to Cliff. I assume you did not fly over to have it done in person.
