While it is better than F&S chiselled last, it is still a soft chisel.  Perhaps a side photo like this would help more

The Chaves is just such a perfect shape that it is difficult to compare with others.  IMHO, the next best last for the semi brogue out of all that's shown on this thread is the discontinued EG888.

Am happy to see Fosters offering this new MTO line and pleased to see competitive pricing for the black fading.

Will there be a chiseled and rounded last that better fits slip ons?

If a client walks into the shop, will there be a sample shoe on the new rounded and chiseled last in UK 11.5E for one to try on?

Will the wing tip monk and the brogued slip ons (bottom picture) made for Will be available for the MTO line?

No the Chaves had been sent to the factory

F&S, what about this shoe? Is it bespoke last too?

 

Also, do you have any RTW adelaides?

post #185 of 1125
Yes it is bespoke Foster and Son 01 from this collection.

barky, we're putting together some side shots like this. They'll compare the 888, 337 and our new last. Hope to be able to post them later this afternoon for you to have a look. We are able to offer the fading on our existing (but rapidly diminishing) 888 stock at a cost of £175.

MichaelAy329, we're still working on our new line and further models will be developed over the next few months. We do have sample shoes in 11.5E for you to try on and it would be lovely to see you in the shop.

barky,

 

culverwood is right, this is a bespoke model. For the time being we're concentrating on our initial models but we expect to have a Monk and an Adelaide soon in the new last.

culverwood, that's a very "Foster" shoe.

wurger,

 

Many thanks for your enquiry. The picture below shows a side view of our Sandringham model on the 337 last. Please let us know if you need any more information.

Out of curiousity, will your new line of shoes be made in stock or with you still be partnering with EG?

I apologize if this has been asked / answered.

Newcomer, no apology necessary. Our new line is made under our direct supervision in Northampton, EG is not the maker. Best, Foster & Son

Ex-Bespoke Shoes

 

What do we mean by ex-bespoke shoes? They are bespoke shoes made in the Foster & Son workshop at 83 Jermyn Street from bespoke hides to a customer’s exact specifications, hand-lasted and welted with hand stitched soles. In other words, bespoke shoes that have been made for a Foster & Son bespoke client.

 

We occasionally have clients who fail to collect their shoes or who need a re-make (where we re-make the shoes from scratch), which can happen for a number of reasons. Except in those cases where the design of the shoe is unique to the person who commissioned them, we then make these shoes available in our shop to other customers.

 

The photographs below show a pair of our ex-bespoke shoes. It is an elegant punch cap oxford with a beautiful bevelled waist. We believe that they would fit a UK 7.5E.

 

We will show you some more of our ex-bespoke stock soon.

 

 

Foster & Son
