    Both lasts are indeed very nice. i don't know why, the new one reminds me of Edward Green.

    Absolutely. it looks like the EG 82 (offset toe point, rounded, slightly elongated). Which is a very good thing.

    Looks tight in the width next to that Belgrave.

    You are not looking at it right... The 337 is tha Audley on the right...

    The one on the left is the Melcombe, like the Belgrave but in the new last.

    Is a very special shoes as for the moment it is not in catalogues. I don't know if it will be included, but for the moment it has been made to order by some shops in Paris and Spain.

    The picture again... The new last is the one with the brogueing, and the othrt id a 337 brown Audley.

    Wow, that's terrible then. [​IMG]

    The 337 is already an elongated, broad, snouty-looking last as is. The 363 must be ridiculously long then if that comparison shot is accurate.

    The super offset toe doesn't help the comparison either.

    I Willctry to post a picture of them with a suit on monday. The last is lovely and reminds me of Rdwsrd Green, it might be the perspective.

    I think is much better than the 337. If got more than 6 pairs in 337, but I prefer this one, a little bit more roundy.

    You guys are totally wrong. This last looks great to me and the offset toe is a big design plus, IMHO.

    I agree. I love my Melcombes - extremely comfortable and a beautiful shoe

    I think it is a bit higher. I have a high instep in this, although I just have weared them 2 times, feel more comfortable. In 337 i usually need some days to adjust.

    Are these the exact same size shoe? The 363 is that much longer?

    Ok, you are right. I have checked and the new Melcombes are half size bigger than the Audley's. That might be what is confusing everybody. Sorry.

    I have a hallam on the same size, i will try to compare them.... I am afraid all my 337 are 8 and it seems that in the new 363 I got a 8 1/2... I tried them in the shop and They fit really well since the beggining, the 337 usually hurt my instep the first few days but afterwards they are perfect.

    Tomorrow I am posting a detailed analysis on them with many pictures in case you want to check. You are invited to comment too.

    I really think that C&J made a good one with this last.

    Regards.

    You should have someone else take a pic of them. Or, take them off, put them on the ground, take a step away, and take a pic.
