Bumping and rephrasing my question about single monks:

 

If anyone has Vass single monks on the U last, how would you describe the proportions? Are they balanced nicely or are they slightly too elongated and pointy for such a 'conservative' model (I think single monks are fairly conservative). As I wrote earlier, I'm choosing a last for single monks now. I'd generally prefer F to U because of fit, and in this particular case I'm also wondering about elongation on the U last, but something about the few pictures of single monks on the F last also rubs me the wrong way. It's hard to explain, but maybe there is something in the F last that makes it look better with toe caps, medallions and other things that I wouldn't like to see in a single monk, while U tends to look equally nice in all designs (although it does have a lot of panache that may be somewhat out of place in, e.g. black cap-toe oxfords, but that's mostly because of tradition - aesthetically they are still very nice). However, I've not seen single monks on either last in real life and am judging by pictures only. I've considered P2 as well, but I think it looks a bit too rough for this model.

They look like this, apparently:

^ Perfect for a day like today in the Bay. I need a nice pebble grain shoe for the all this rain we're having.

applied some angelus acrylic finisher to the osloer'. used the angelus 600 normal shine and im pleased with how they turned out. thanks to @Eddielch for being the trailblazer and giving me some pointers. the acrylic gives the shell a lovely glow similar to alden but the 600 isnt as shiny. hopefully the acrylic will minimize spotting
