This looks amazing! They look somehow better than the Skoak pictures (sorry skoak). On their website, the leather seems to be creased/supple/thin, whereas your picture is better. Looking forward to more pics.

 

My impression also seems to be that 804 has a more exaggerated taper from the widest part of the forefoot to the heel. In other words, the 74945 has a 'fatter' heel.

 

Thanks everybody for contributing!

Thanks. Here are a few poor closet comparison shots to some common lasts. The overall leather thickness from the internal lining to the external leather is thinner than some other brands. I think that's why the creasing of a poor fitting Bonafe can look so bad. The 804 shape and instep works very well for me though. And even next to the 82 and MH71, it really is a great design. You also get the hand welting some of the others don't offer.

They look great but I wonder when my pair will be coming in. Maybe it is taking longer for the width or something.

That's the way it was with the St James in Kudu. The widths other than E were supposedly due in later.

These are just .... so nice. The 74945 is nice yes. But the 804 just seems so perfect for a dressy oxford.
I've just been vacillating on getting this pair from SkoaB's store...
Come on guys, I'm sure we can get 2 more guys for a gmto in the 804 last.
