Punch Cap Oxford Comparison

Alfred Sargent Wilson, Edward Green Berkeley and Alfred Sargent Moore

The AS Moore's look fantastic here.  They sure do punch above their weight (no pun intended)!

Great comparison shot wurger.  Oddly enough, my eye is drawn to the EG, even though I am a fan of chiseled lasts.  I wonder if I like chiseled lasts to be in other colors with more burnishing to add an element to a shoe that is otherwise uniform (solid black) beyond the toe shape. . . .

I am also more leaning towards chiseled toe in my current purchases, but I guess people tend to prefer round toes for more formal blake shoes.

I am the anti-Wurger in that I never get a chance to wear black cap toes. I wore my park aves once (at my wedding) before replacing them with AS Armfields that I caught on sale. In 6 months I have yet to wear them so I almost sold them before being talked out of it. I guess they'll eventually come in handy at some point in the future. Anyways, here's a comparison I did 6 months back between the 2 shoes in case anyone wants to see detailed pics of what you're paying for when you up the price from about $300 to $600.

if you don't need to wear business suits for work, I guess that you can get away with not wearing black shoes at all!

I actually read your post back then, really liked the comparison photos, and studied the photos in detail for reference too! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Two Vass black cap toes on their way!

You should have a DOUBLE cap toe made next! Would you then not need a toe puff for such a design? Excellent selections there...

On man, I just get a buzz every time I see that OEII model from Vass in any combination. It's one of my all-time favourite designs, with a solid make to boot.

wurger, you must have around two dozen black cap toes by now. Will you one day write up a meta analysis of the horde?
