Ethan / Amoury classic

Regarding the LS Last Pairs, if you want them perfect (no signs of shop wear), you may want to ask about the condition or for a photo. I've had a few Last Pairs that looked 100% new and fresh out of the box, but some of the Saint Crispin's have been around for nearly three years now. The pair I received had creasing and the highly polished areas had some checking in the finish. With the deal, they were fine with me, and would look similar after a few wears anyway. I just hit them with conditioner/polish and they are already one of my favorites.
I've said this before...but I'll say it again.
StC's chiseled last does not impress me. It looks chubby and unrefined compared to the chiseled lasts of many of the english makers (i.e., G&G, EG)...and the italians (i.e., Bestetti, Meccariello).
I think StC's best shapes are the classic and riva. I have not seen the novello in person, but it looks very similar to G&G's deco last...which I do like...when used appropriately.
It sounds kind of boring, but I favor the classic last in almost all make ups. I think it works the best for most everything besides loafers and boots. One other thing - if you've never tried on Saint Crispin's before, then I'd suggest getting to somewhere that you can. I wear a 8/8.5 US in Alden, a 7/7.5 UK in Carmina, and a 6.5E UK in Saint Crispin's!
Also, for the New Yorkers, Phillip will be in town on the 25th and 26th to take orders for MTO and Pret Customized. If you've never been fit by him, it's worth a visit. Any questions, you can PM me or shoot us an email at email@example.com
