Would love to see more pictures of deco right next to their regular last. I love the standard MH-71 last and would like to have a better visual of what deco adds.

Deco lasted St James as as found on Bespoke England's site - there must be huge demand potential here! Thanks for pushing this forward Nick.

Probably easier to tell the difference if a side by side comparison was shown. But my biggest hesitation would be that my understanding is the Deco Last is even more narrow than their other Lasts.

This is definitely a better view. Thanks for sharing.

From what I have heard, the foot is hugged in the same position at the top, but sure, the nose is longer, but width at the widest should be the same, or at least the foot should fall into it in much the same as the non deco.

Nice, but somehow just not as good as those in calf.

Besides I don't think the cordovan rolls would look that good on a shoe like this later on.

Even if this is the case I'm not sure I would want a shoe with a longer nose.

I do think the Last is very attractive looking however.

You know me, Nick - I'd pretty much be down for any wingtip or captoe oxford-type shoe in the Deco last - Mitchell, Oxford, Cambridge, Westminster, Burlington (only exception is St. James, because I prefer the old design). A deco Burnham or Oakham would also get a thumbs-up. Having seen the rounded Deco in real life, I think I actually prefer the classic chiseled last. A two-tone would be fantastic.

If it's a gmto I would be interested in Chelsea & jodhpur on deco last smile.gif
post #17592 of 21791
Any interest in a gmto for these?

Sounds good. I will certainly play for a deco GMTO. A Gable in racing green or navy would be perfect but open to other ideas.

 

Would you have any pics of this new Round deco last?

I just did a quick google for this new round deco last and I agree with you - the classic chiseled one is better.

I agree in that a Jodhpur would be a,asking on the deco last. Maybe the croc/gator strap one with calf upper that we spoke About earlier.

A gable would be great too, especially in Racing green or navy / midnight blue
