    Anyone know anything about it or have anything on it? Looks like the sleeker, round toe last they have been missing.

    Can't tell you anything about the last, but it does look nice...

    It is called the Lonsdale. It may be a Japanese release, but it is from the handgrade line. It appears to be very similar if not exactly the Audley on a different last. The more I look at it, the more I like it.

    That last looks quite similar to form of my C&J Melcombe.

    I bought a pair in one of the Paris boutiques during the sales, but I haven't been able to find any details on the model. The Melcombe is handgrade and pretty much the Belgravia but on a last with a rounder toe. Mine were subs, ie seconds, but they're practically perfect and a lovely deep chestnut colour. Very comfortable.

    Looks like the 360. I bet it's a bit pointy on the foot.

    +1 The 358 (updated 348) and 360 are C+J Paris lasts that they started doing in the UK last year. [​IMG]

    Hello to all.

    I think that a can put some light into this. I am from Spain, and here they sell the new Londsdale handgrade model. It is indeed as the clasic Audley, but in this new last, that is more round.

    It even appears in the new catalogue 2010-2011, as you can see in this picures.

    I have tried it, and it looks really good. It seems more like an EG last.

    I bought the Melcombe. It is like the Belgrave in Beachnut (handgrade also) in the same new 363 last. It is really amazing. It was ordered specially from the spanish distributor, so it is very special and unique. It does not appear in the catalogues.

    I will soon post some comparison in my blog between 337 and 363 in my blog in you are interested. I am sorry it is in Spanish, but in case some of you are interested, I will try to translate it here. The website is http://economiayocio.blogspot.com

    Regards.

    Reminds me a little of the Grenson 107 last, which is one of my favourites in style terms, although it doesn't happen to fit me very well.

    In my case they feel more comfortable than 337 as they are a bit wider.

    I must say, I personally find them to be a bit underwhelming in real life next to the 337. Not bad exactly, just sort of uninspired and clunky. The six eyelets bother me a bit too. It does look better in brown than in black though.

    I'll try post some more pictures in the near future, I think that is at least as good as 337 (and I own 6 337's...).

    But I haven't wear them yet.

    Looks tight in the width next to that Belgrave.

    I saw it in the C&J store, conveniently sitting next to an Audley. Hard to say which one I prefer.

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