"Hi Guys
Just to clarify, the 606, 202 are the same family and the 888,82 last are the same family, the last that was produced for Fosters was the 88 last and the 32,33 last were the parents of the 202,606.
so the EG last order goes like this.
first the 32 round toe last
second the 33 square toe version of the 32
third the 202, adapted 32 to fit better
fourth the 606 square toe version of 202
fifth 808 elegant square toe based on the 88 but did not fit well
sixth 89 developed for R.Lauren as a better fitting 808
seventh 888 bespoke looking last developed from 202 but longer and narrower toe box
eighth 82 round toe based on 888
ther have been other lasts produced by EG but mostly for other customers, not EG core range.
there are also numerous slip-on last, but there development history is not as striaght forward.
Tony"

thanks for the post from London Lounge

I've been meaning to do a blog entry comparing EG's various lasts, and cbbuff's digging inspired me to get to it. Unfortunately, I'm missing some of the lasts that Tony mentioned (606, 88, 808), but I was able to include the 32, 33, 202, 346, 89, 888, 82, 201. I was going to include the loafer lasts as well but didnt want to go overboard.

Pictured in the first image (l to r):

Captoe Longwing for Wildsmith, 32 last
Cadogan for Cole Haan, 33 last
Malvern III, 202 last
Malvern for Brooks English, 346 last
Hutton for RLPL, 89 last
Brooksville for RLPL, 888 last
Falkirk, 82 last
Windsor, 201 last

I'd love to see the 606, 88, or 808, if anyone has 'em.

Does RL make mahogany trees anymore? The only ones I've been able to order are cedar and based on the 202. The EG 888 trees I have all lack the chisel toe.....

cbbuff thanks for the info on the lasts! Very cool.

They don't carry or offer the mahogany trees anymore. But you may still stumble across a pair or two when guys sell their shoes. Sometimes they're willing to part with them separately.

I understand - looks almost too perfect. My understanding is that the Dover apron is hand-stitched. May be exceptions - on mine it definitely looks hand stitched.
