    Pepe is the man. Mentioned I would be traveling / busy in a week so he express mailed a pair of double monks to me. :slayer: Got them as a birthday gift to myself, can't wait! Although might have some duties / brokerage since it's with Fedex

    can anyone advise how to best select a last? I'm interested in ordering a pair of the black double monks - these will only be my second pair of shoes that are available in different lasts. I currently have a pair of Churchs Balmoral Oxfords in a UK9.5G '100' last(according to markings in the shoe).

    Ive got the tassel loafer in dark brown suede, dubmunk dark brown suede and a MTO olfe last cap toe adelaide semi brogue in black calf and green lining on the way for me. Also have a bunch of oxfords and bluchers for my colleagues. Will see if i can get photos of them all to share.

    Can anyone comment on how the quality of the Clasica models compares to the quality of the Maestra ones?

    I own a Maestra on the New Rey last that I'm really pleased with, but at that price point I'd likely go with Carmina, which seems to be a step above and offers less exaggerated lasts. The Clasica line has more rounded lasts but I'm still unsure of its quality.

    I wore these for the first time today. Fit is in fact perfect on both shoes, both in the toe and at the heel, and the color is fantastic. My challenge will now be to not wear these every day, as they are already my favorite pair of shoes.

    Ordered these today in MTO Dark Brown Calf, Linea Maestro stayed with the Olfe last as Pepe convinced me that shoe looks far better on that last !! Pics when they arrive.

    Got my shipping notice on Friday - they were supposed to arrive tomorrow, but alas, they are stuck in customs awaiting completion of some forms.
