Wow...thats a big order list. I am guessing wait times may grow.

I am so glad to hear you like them. Enjoy!!! They do look stunning.

I just put in a re-order for myself with the antique welt and edgetrim - super excited for them.

Thanks again for a smooth transaction.

Anyone heard from Notch?

He's working on our MTO, and his new shop I imagine.  But he's around.

Does anyone have pictures comparing the R and F lasts they can post? I am about to order regular black calf plain captoe and wingtip.
post #11302 of 20222
I have both R and F. I can post something later today or this evening.

From my experience, the R is less elongated and higher volume than F. I have the same size in both. The F is snug, the R less so. I like both.

The list shows some 90+ orders.

Size 41 should fit you.

One watchout is that U & K lasts typically have high insteps. The most common problem I've found for most people is that the lacing gap almost (or completely) closes after break-in period even if other parts of the shoes fit your feet.

If the lacing gap on your meermin olfe almost closes, then for sure the instep volume in U last will be too big for you (I have both.)

For me the lacing gap for Olfe is on the wider side, but its perfect on the U last (I have high instep.)

For me EU 41. Their oxblood calf deliciously versatile for all occasions.

Gosh! I got to place that order soon! Waiting for them to receive Ilcea leather though, as I'm planning to place an order on both oxblood and brown museum calf. Same model as above, one on K and the other U.

ok, folks...

 

I see lots of *sexy* pics from brand NEW shoes here - way to go ...

 

 

- but how about a couple of 100 pics of used Vass'?

 

I assume those shoes are getting used, right?

 

So, less "closet queens" and more "hairy-manly-chuck-norrisish pics of real men walking the streets in them"  :lol:

 

 

 

 

:nest:

 

cheers, Al
