It certainly is sleeker than the Marlow which means that's also true when compared to the EG 202. The Marlow and the EG 202 are just about the same.

The P2 has great lines, though for some reason they don't always show well in pics.  They do here:

Vass antic cognac shell cordovan wingtip on P2 next to a pair of C&J cigar shell Marlows.

 

to me the marlow looks much better and more refined.

 

In terms of fit the P2 and other vass lasts are miles ahead of course (at least for my feet)

I'd need a wide-angle lens for that group shot - not to mention wider steps!

Yeah, I pretty much figured it would have to be in panoramic view and the steps just didn't stand a chance. LOL

Your shoes and my boots share the same upper colour and  Goyser stiching, 

 

How is the fit?


Thanks! The shoes fitted a little snug in the middle of the shoe at first (width F, probably should have gone for G for an easier fit right away), but it's getting better and better. I think these will fit perfectly after a few more wears. Best (roomiest) toebox ever though.:thumbs-up:

 

Please let me (us) see your boots. How are your experience with the green museum calf? I was a little suprised that it was so dark. Not in a bad way, I think it is quite nice that it varies that much with different light.

^I love those Namor, they were in my mind for a long time.  I was really thinking to go for Vibram instead of double leather soles for my Osloer, as I finally did.

My green calf is some short of racing green; they seem a bit lighter.  Here you are.

I've a sizing question I hope you could be of assistance with as I'm planning to order a pair of derby boots on the new peter-last, but am not fully certain on which size to choose.

 

I've a pair of penny loafers in size 45.5 on the peter-last. They were very tight starting out, especially over the instep, but the Vass store assured me that they would eventually feel comfortable and they were completely right. Would I've gone any bigger they would now have been too big.

 

I also have a derby in size 45 on the budapest-last. Very comfortable but lengthwise they're just enough. For further reference I can mention that I take an UK 11 on C&J 337, but I find it tight over the instep and prefer not to spend a full day in an oxford. 

 

For a boot on the new-peter last, which size would you recommend me ordering?

 

Many thanks in advance.

UK 11 would usually also be a 45, but both of those are tight (+ an initially snug loafer a half size up). A derby boot should be more forgiving, but New Peter won't be as roomy as Peter or Budapest. Maybe 45.5 (especially if shell), but 46 is also a possibility. I'd confirm your measurements with Reszo or a vendor before ordering.

You guys are filling me with so much WANT for a split toe derby boot - very nice NAMOR and Zapasman!

That was my reaction as well when I saw a sample swatch at the Toronto GTG hosted by @jokb . And it was a pleasant surprise.  I immediately decided I had to order a pair in this material, and somewhat less immediately decided that I would go with a pair of F-last chukkas.  I can also see this being killer in a tall derby boot or a pair of austerity brogues.  At least, those were the three styles I had settled upon before making my final choice.

Speaking of derby boots -

I just confirmed an order for a shortwing austerity derby boot in cognac scotch grain on the P2 last. Pics to come in a few months ...
