Simpson - a narrow last with a chisel toe. Reasonably extended in the toe box, and a reasonably narrow waist. E width.
Alcudia - much like the Simpson, but with more of an Almond Toe. E width.
Robert - A rounded Almond toe, E width. Officially it is the same width as the Simspon, but the extra room at the toe tends to make it more comfortable for wider feet.
Inca - a pointed toe, on our widest last, with a fairly wide waist. The most comfortable last we have for wide and flat feet. EE width.
Rain - Much like the Inca, but with a chisel toe. EE width.
Forest - a popular last in Europe, it is a standard width with a soft round toe, quite low in the instep, so high insteps can feel a little pinched in this last. E width.
Uetam - a new last for us in a loafer, it feels very similar to the Forest, if a shade narrower. E width.

desu

Ethan,

Thanks for the info.

Which last do you think would be most comfortable for a foot with a high instep?

I have posted pics at ethandesu.tumblr.com of a pair that have been on display for the last few months and have a fairly consistent colour throughout.

Thank you. These are great. Decisions...

I'm between 7.5 E on brannock device.  7E Alden Barrie last.  6.5 on Carmina (Punched Captoe).  Compared to my aldens (all barrie last I believe) and AE, my Carmina is the narrowest shoe I have.

Love this suede. Pair it with a navy jacket, white shirt and grey flannels or white jeans and go anywhere.

Anything that is over 3k HKD and is described as "solid" is a solid stick umbrella (i.e. a walking stick with an umbrella attached). The "stick" umbrellas at around 1.2- 1.3k HKD are "two piece sticks" so wood shaft with a separate wood handle attached. They are a little lighter and smaller than a solid umbrella. Personally, I think they are a very nice alternative to the solid sticks.
