Wrapped in the Washington Jewish Week; "Shlomo sleeps with the fishes".

edit: ah, I now see I was about 18 mins late on this. At the time I was out grilling my fishes (shrimps, actually), so was checking in between turning skewers. Grilled lemongrass & sriracha shrimp, if anyone's taking notes. And yes, I eat late.

I have a pair of U last austerity brogues and really like them. I look at pictures of OE II on U and F and can't say which I prefer, so I keep not ordering. I also want to get a pair of "French Oxfords" and similarly can't decide which last.

Camoshita trousers. And first mirror selfie I think.

You mastered the first level of camouflaging beautifully. smile.gif
Very nice fit those trews on you.

F and P2 are my favorite lasts right now. P2 is the most underrated of all - people change their mind instantly about it once they try it on.

Based on fit, aesthetics, or both?  I also have a freakishly high instep (probably due to same reason as you) and haven't found a really well-fitting RTW shoe yet - though my experience isn't vast.  Thanks.

Even with derbies/bluchers?   My experience is that I pretty never have instep issues with bluchers because the lacing opens up completely and I can adjust it around my instep in a way that's not possible with oxfords.

 

I like F and P2 the most in terms of shape/aesthetics.  My feet aren't that difficult to fit so I usually find a size that works for me in every last out there - it's very rare that I eliminate a last entirely because I cannot find a size that fits me.

I think the the highest point of the F last's instep is relatively high, but the slope of the instep is steeper than the P2. I found the P2's instep more gradual and therefore slightly more accommodating at the lower laces (if that makes any sense at all)

No, sorry I wasn't clear.  Just oxfords - I'm the same as you regarding bluchers, probably the reason most of my shoes are of this kind.  Thanks for the response.

That makes perfect sense.  Thanks.

I'm particularly in love with this F-lasted medium suede Budapest Oxford brogue - I had to get one pair :inlove:

Just ordered them. Saw them at your store a couple weeks ago, and they are even better in person. Great addition to the austerity brogues I bought from you a couple months ago.
