Numbering is a no for some reason.
You definitely deserve the number 1. Perhaps the rest should be in order of when the order was placed? For me, it doesn't really matter as long as it's not #13.
Well that stinks. It would have been nice to commemorate this MTO
What is a curved last and what is a straight last?
Perhaps this pic illustrates the difference between a straight last and a curved last. The one on the left is the RL Lindrick (straight last) and the one on the right is the RL Gianni (curved last). I don't own any curved last shoes/boots so I can't comment on their fit.
Would have been nice buy hey-ho. Strange though, as I would have thought it would have been the easiest thing to do in the whole construction.
^ I just realized that the pic above was from you, aldenfan, from another thread! Haha. Anyway, it shows the different last types perfectly.
I have the Marlow wingtip which I'm assuming is straight lasted. When I tried on the 341 boot in-store I felt no real difference in fit, and that I'm exactly the same size in both lasts. What is the "big difference in fit" between the two?
Hello gentlemen, I would like to get in this MTO. So it will be double leather and not Dainite? What about flushed metal toe taps with leather?
Haha thanks. Yep, that is from me in another thread. I knew the two fit differently for me, but I didn't realize that it might be partially because the two were different types of lasts (straight and curved). Thanks for the explanation. It makes sense.
I didn't realize this before. So you sized the same in the 341 last as you did in your Marlow 325 lasted shoes? Would you say they fit pretty much exactly the same for you as far as width and toe box and everything? I am able to fit in Marlow 13D (US) but they are tight and pinch my toes a bit. Good to know if there is a pretty straight correlation for sizing between 325 and 341 lasts.
Do you own both of those boots? And would you say the difference in fit between the two boots enough to say that one boot is slightly more comfortable than the other? This is very valuable information for me since I own the Lindrick boot and find it very comfortable. Although, just from the pics, the Harlech appears sleeker than the Gianni. Does anybody know what last the Gianni is on? Thanks!
What size Marlow (US size) and what size 341 (UK)?
13D Marlow (US) and 12E Brecon (UK).
I heard from Lauren as well. She has all my order info.
I am not in favor of toe taps. However, if the majority voted for this, I would not drop out.
