Your Chetwynd in 173 are superb! CongratsWhat do you guys think of Church's 168 LAST. Do any of you own it? Would love to see picture of your shoes.

This is a picture that Church's post on twitter. At least for me it looks interestingly good because I never like square toe shoes before. Model name is FAIRSTEAD.

A month later I manage to purchase a pair full brogue wingtip in the 168 LAST. Not the same model with the first picture but they are made from the same last. I like the fact they only have 5 eyelets, I prefer it rather than 6.

Hope you guys can see the shape of the last. What do you guys think? are they too square and boxy?

The leather is Bookbinder not polished binder, Church's says bookbinder fume has a rub off finish which is polished to give a depth of colour, showing highlights. (This is what they say when I email them asking about bookbinder fume leather)

Leather sole. You can see that they are definitely post prada, not that it matters.

Here they are next to my CHETWYND in 173 LAST size 100 G
The colour of the shoes actually change dramatically when expose to light. I know any object will look brighter in bright light, but this shoes change from reddish brown to yellowish brown. Does that make sense?
That's all folks. If you have shoes from church's 168 LAST and shoes with church's binder leather, please post them! I think it will be interesting to see how the shoes aged.
