Looks pretty good so far, terrorsquad.

^^^looking good TS. You after the Simpson toe shape? Last looks wide enough for my blobby feet, but the waist tapers nicely. I am only worried about height of arch, especially with wholecuts.

Could you post side on pictures to gauge arch height? And also top down pictures for width taper? Of the sample monk shoe, not the last.

Thanks for the great job so far.

I in a way agree with the fact that its a bit too square; maybe will work on it to be a bit more refined in the toebox are.

Below are some pictures of a sample shoe lasted on this last; again will appreciate feedback and suggestions on this last smile.gif
 The shoe below reminds me of the C&J Lowndess in the 348 last and the slight bump reminds me of the Carmina Simpson last and a bit of the Vass U-last

Thanks guys. Pete, I was actually going for the TG73 look (similar to the picture below) but the Simpson last/Vass U-last is a close second. But certain adjustments will still be made to the last so that it has a nice chiseled look to it rather then looking too square toed 

 

 

 

With regards to the pictures, I will try to ask Pepe to provide the requested pictures once he has finished the shoe. Also, I will ask him to give an indication of the height of the arch for maybe a size UK8 for the last; maybe that will help in a way.

 

Let me know if you guys have any further input regarding this proposed last and I will discuss it with Pepe smile.gif

Given your goal and where you're at, I think you're doing a fantastic job. More than happy to put my faith in what you come up with in consultation with Pepe!

I think his developing a new last and where TS is currently at in pushing the present standards is already laudable in its self. Measurements of the height of the arch? That's next level stuff and detail -- I wouldn't know how to measure that on mine, or if provided with measurements, wouldn't know how to determine if it's a good match for my feet or not. Ha.

Very pleased to see that Pepe labels it an E-width last for us slightly wider footed individuals.

I hope it doesn't turn out too elongated, like the 348 which is, after a year in action, just too long IMHO... more in favor of the TG73 shown.

 

I sized downed on my Northcote boots (from my usual 8 UK to 7½ UK). Here it is compared to (from left to right): C&J Northcote 348 last, C&J Westfield 341 last, Meermin Ama last and the museum calf on the Olfe last.

 

 

 

 

Thanks TS for the time you are putting into this!

Action shot of the museum calfs, great great value for money.

What width is the Olfe Last considered? I have that and AMA and if AMA is E, it's too wide for my D foot.

Great work TS.

Beautiful ! It looks great and sweet.

Order for a Rapello Suede Tassel Loafer (RON last) and a Double Monk (HIRO last) was place on May 2, initiated to the system on May 8, paid on May 23. The two shoes will be delivered in the next 5-7 days. Can't wait to see them.........Hopefully I won't be shocked by defects.

Great work Terrorsquad! I think the last shape on the pictures will work quite well! However I'm not the biggest fan of the TG73 but i LOVE the MH71. As long as its not too extremley chopped off I think it will be a slam dunk! /Signed up

Need to soften the welt for the Hatchgrain and have it follow the lines of the toe box a lot tighter.

+1 for TS' efforts and for bboys comment.  I'd be interested in knowing the instep height as well but wouldn't know how to determine if they'd fit a high instep/high arch foot.  Any guidance?

post #6119 of 11984

Just awaiting a few more members to give me their full details, and then the Brown Museum Calf MTO Mk.II will be sent to Pepe, and he'll get in contact from there. 

 

If anyone else is interested, they are more than welcome to join. Just shoot me a PM!


Cheers,


Alex


PS: TS that last is looking great!

So sorry but what I meant was the obtaining the measurements for the instep of the last! Once I do, will let others know and how to measure their instep. smile.gif
