    the ruby punched captoe mto project is tempting, but it's pretty much the same as my saddle punched captoe besides the last and shell color. does anyone know how the alcudia last fits compared to robert? mike said it's similar to forest, but closer to rain, yet rain is supposed to slimmer than robert.

    i'm looking forward to pics from the navy shell projects. i opted to go with the cognac python austerity brogues. i'm debating whether i should remind mike about the navy python captoe project.

    hopefully they will come in a couple weeks with the next shipment to epaulet, otherwise it will be end of oct.

    i'm not sure if mike ever posted the cognac python swatch to one of the threads. it was on the pre-order link, but that doesn't work anymore.

    here are betty's (green?) python brogues.

    Another perspective of the Robert/Forest last. I don't have experience on the Forest but the Robert fits me very well on the wider side (not very tight). I am a 7.5 UK

    So forest is a wider fitting last? Compared to Robert it looks longer and slimmer but most of the advice I've read suggests Forest is wider than Robert. How does forest compare to Inca? Inca is supposed to be wide but it fits me great. As does the Robert and now, Alcudia last

    Actually, I believe Forest is offered in two widths - E and EE. That might explain the confusion.

    Unfortunately, no wingtip brogues in black calf which I'll have to order from the Armoury.

    Never had the pleasure to see it in person, but the Robert last looks damn nice.
