Seeking opinions on this as I like the toe shape of G&G more but prefer the strap shape of Chapel.

What do you guys think? (Pictures below)

I second the Chapel. The 8000 JLP last and is a great balance of chiseled but soft while G&G's is a little more aggressive so it does depend on what you're pairing them with.

Is it just me or do those 2 examples of the John Lobb Chapel look like they are on different lasts?

Maybe it’s the angle of the pictures and the shadow around the toe box on the first example, but the pair at the top seem to have a more chiseled toe whereas the second seems more rounded.

@Phileas Fogg It does appear that way, could be a completely different pair. But can also be the angle of the image.

I also vote for the Chapel, that last on the Oakham looks too bold, for my taste at least.
