u mean the 348/358 last?  They're about the elf-est.

Can't think of an elf shoe in the other makes, altho some would say the G&G Deco line is pretty out there. (pic2)

I don't think it's that. Stitchy, what are your sort of reddish shoes with the oddly shaped toe cap?

G&G Uppingham on the TG73.

Yeah, my work and personal schedule changed a lot, leaving me way less time for SF. Which incidentally makes this thread almost impossible to follow. I miss a few days and its a almost a couple hundred new posts. A week, might be close to 500 or more new posts. I cant get myself to go through it all, so I kinda fell off the Noodle wagon. Now I just like to pop in from time to time to say hey to mah bois here.

Hmmm, so I'm looking at other pictures of that last, and they don't seem too elf-y to me. I wonder if it's the way the toe caps draw the eye on the Uppingham that creates the effect.

Grown men who have a fear for elf-like shoes have an issue with self confidence

Those shoes are dope. In any case, yes, that model does accentuate the pointiness ofcthe last.

These St. J II are on the same last. Look same same to you?

TIA.

I have both. When you're at this level of the food chain I'd say go for the most aesthetically pleasing to you. Personally speaking Vass > EG.

 

I also rarely use suits, but when I do I wear them with my pair of Vass Old English Plain model on the U-last.

Best. Shoe. Ever.

Damn Stitches.... nice pics on this page.

In terms of Vass and EG comparison, the biggest differences aside from construction method are burnishing and last. You would expect leather quality and attention to detail to be high for both makers.

In Vegas stopped by at SS and the Havana model fit so perfect it's not even funny. Might have to make a purchase in the future

I was also surprised how well the SS jackets fit OTR.
