• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Anyone have any experience of the llubi last? Sketches from carmina suggest it’s quite a roomy last.

I thought soller was an elongated last. They look normal length.
Ehhh, I don't know. They are maybe a little extended in the toe. I think people make a bit much of it. They're extended in the same kind of way as the C&J 341. In my opinion they fit and look relatively similar to each other.

Oh! Interesting you mention 341. I have some loafers on this last. Are they similar? Do you take the same size? Thanks.

Yes, I take the same size. I think the soller fits me slightly better than the 341 but of all my shoes, the 341 seems closest to soller. Others may think otherwise.

Finally, my "last order" from the Kirby MTO arrived today! It took longer than anticipated due to the sneaker sole was out of stock.

Here it is, right out of the box.

80650 Sneaker. Black rusticalf + Tan rusticalf, and red laces. Soller last (because I want something more "sporty" and "sleek" than Calvia).

Why this color combination though? Well, I actually modeled this one after my favorite dog, with his red collar.

And here's the close up:

While the waiting was long, but this definitely worths it :)
