"elongated" AEs, but not Clifton

I tried on the Clifton the other day, and loved the elegance of its "elongated" forepart. It made my Byrons look positively dumpy by comparison. I'd have bought it, but I'm up to my ears in captoes at the moment... are any of the other AEs built along this graceful line?

The Bristol (slip-on) and (I believe) the Westgate (wholecut) are on the same last as the Clifton.

maybe my eyes decieve me, but the AE website makes it look as though the Taunton boot uses the same last as well... anybody know from experience?

I don't know if anyone has seen the Taunton in person yet, but someone who asked reported on this board that it also uses the 8 last.

Yes, the new Taunton chelsea is indeed on the new #8 last, unfortunately for me...or maybe fortunately since I have more decent shoes than any sane man needs already!
