    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.

    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.

    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
