    I posted this in the Carmina thread yesterday, but for folks who don't follow it, I thought I'd cross/double post here... MTO, Alcudia last, black calf (boxcalf), model 80214 (normally made on the Simpson last): [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    you know me, my friend! I'm a sucker, as long as they're AT LEAST 50 years old! Your pics of the Alden shell Norwegians have made me re-think how strict I am on this point.

    There's something about handstitching and hand-lasting, and in the 1940's, especially, so many great US makers were doing it by hand.

    agreed, although I'm sure we're in the minority here. I really enjoy 6 & 7 eyelet oxfords. Not so much on derbies, though.

    moo very nice,
    as I see this is model 104 on the classic last?
    How does this last fit in comparison with something known (C&J, EG) ?

    Did you get it directly from St.Crispin or from the retailer in US?

    Thanks all.

    The shoes fit very well after a half day of wear. I would imagine that the fit is close to bespoke. :happy:
