Another hot one today...
Carmina three-eyelet derby - creasing is a bit unsightly, but I love 'em.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Those are nice. Which last? I've been looking at the 3-eye derby on Simpson, but that looks like something else.
They are, indeed, on the Simpson last. Not for everyone, but a pretty damn sexy last, if you ask me. I should have probably stayed away from the Simpson last as I needed an extra half size, but I love the classic, simple look of a PTB and these were exactly what I was looking for.
^^^ I think I do:
If the facing had been a separate piece, and the rest of the "saddle" just brogueing to look like a saddle, then they would be an adelaide that looks like a saddle. But as it is, the whole saddle is a piece, and the brogueing around the facing is only decorative, making it look like an adelaide from the top.
So in a sense, yes, it as a mock-adelaide-oxford saddle.
Great stuff today gents!
Here's mine. Have a new lens to play with.
