The last would not rest squarely on the table/bench, but rest on just the outer point of the heel and the inner point of the ball. “Twist” in a last is one of those things which has its faithful adherents and virulent detractors.
I believe, the late George Cleverley was one of its adherents and to this day, the lasts of the firm still follow these principles.

Thanks. I have a pair of new Bettanins I bought on eBay that I was convinced were not balanced heel wise. I was thinking of filing them down which was ugly becasue they have incredible heel work with brass pins. I am starting to think you have given me the reason why.

Yessir. Wish they were Cleverley, but that will have to wait.

They look great. I especially like the elongated lake on those.

The very same ones. Seller clearly had no idea what he was sitting on.

Thank you, sir. I'm a big fan of the design and the last. The majority of my loafers are of the beefroll persuasion, so these make for a nice change.

Great patina on those. They will only improve with age and wear. GREAT addition to your collection!

Early 1950's NOS Florsheim Wingtips. Note the side broguing, ala EG Windsor.

This was the Florsheim "Gunboat Derby" before they embraced the Longwing and the Goodyear welting method for mass production.

Beautiful! I dig the side punches, but these look a little spermy to me. Are these not Goodyear?
