The last is a tough call. F vs. P2, decisions, decisions

True, go big or go home.

Uncle Nemo!

I told you, I will never ever buy clothes online unless it is something that I've already purchased from a store. Don't you worry. 

My homework is to get back into shape and stop buying stuff.

I stubbornly will standby Zegna for I know they fit me well.

Thanks uncle mimo! I have confidence in P2 now!

Noodles that's the second reference you've made to the Pixar movie in this thread.

Is this your favorite movie?

Maybe he's got one "fin" smaller than the other.

Helz no! But I do have that movie saved on my hard drive. 

My favourite movie is...duh~

Are you referring to my balls? If so, they are uneven...I wonder if I have testicular cancer.

I used to work in that building with the green domes in the background.

I...have never been to Europe. I fear the Nazis. 

post #1092 of 15560

I have never been to Korea.  A sufficiency of Koreans has come to me.

post #1093 of 15560

Next time, I want to visit the other Korea. Hey, maybe they'll treat me like Dennis Rodman. Wait, would that be a good thing or a bad thing?

I intend to wear this shoe with casual sportcoats and slacks. I already own a brown wingtip in cordovan. (RL Marlow)

The two parameters I'm having trouble deciding on are:

1). Last ("F" last vs. the "P2"/"New Peter" last)
-F last is sleeker
-P2 is rounder

2). Material (dark brown boxcalf vs. dark brown pebble grain).

See circled in red

At the moment I am leaning towards a P2 shoe with brown pebble grain. The brown pebble / dainite sole has been called "bombproof" in the Vass thread. I think it would make a good all-weather shoe. (Rain or shine, sleet or snow). I'm leaning towards the P2 because it's not as sleek/formal as the F last.

What do you all think?


Here's what a P2 shoe looks like brown cordovan. (I would be getting the same color shoe in calf)

Here's an F last oxford wingtip in a lighter brown calf ("antique cognac), and a rough estimation of what a shoe in full brown pebble would look like (right):

Be careful of the dark brown calf. They aren't kidding when they say it's dark. In good light, it looks brown, but in low light it's pretty close to black. Also, P2 for that shoe.

Dark brown River II austerity brogue:
