I still can't tell, what was the joke supposed to be? Excuse me I struggle with the English language when it doesn't make any sense

f and u last both look great as wingtips, i love the idea of a brogue wingtip on a sleek last, especially if they are open lacing

Did you size the same as P2? I know R is slightly shorter and wider than P2. I am a bit concerned about the length

They're doing fine-- my best P2s to date. No break-in issues of any consequence, although they are more relaxed now.

my sizing experience is based on their shell model but i can compare last to last:

u last - 45.5
f last - 45
p2 - 44.5
r last - 44.5

In P2, I ordered the same size as f last and resulted in 1/4 - 1/2 sizes big on me. so i think in the future im going with 44.5 in P2. thats the size i ordered in the r last and kuti gave his blessing. one thing i worry about, and something i read in this thread, is the variability of fit of identical shoe models, in identical sizes, up to 1/4 in some cases. but in my limited experience, ive yet to encounter this

Thanks! That's perfect. I expected a would be 42 in P2 since I am 8D on alden barrie, 7.5UK carmina rain and 8UK EG but it was too long. 41.5 was slightly snug but really good now.

This F PTB looks nice

i love that model. also, i wouldnt have even considered the r last if i didnt already have the p2 last and f last. of their rounded lasts i would put r last behind those two. museum flast last ptb would be icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Does the rubber sole fit straight over the top of the leather one? I assume this will help for wet conditions but is it a common technique? What are the pros and cons? Also can it be done retrospectively ?

@ironist, what size did you take in the F last? Would you mind providing the outsole L x W?

Cool. Thanks. Going brown museum PTB with antique edge trim. Looking for a bit more casual makeup
post #12689 of 20253
i think that would be the titz. also that green museum is equally tantalizing

Thinking about a Chukka in the green museum...
