    I'm still trying to get a sense of what the F last looks like. Here are two pictures of boots from Slewfoot and Manton, both on the F
    They look so different.

    Very different shoe sizes too. F is a great last - slightly elongated, soft round toe.

    +10. F is prob my favorite RTW last, followed closely by the EG 82.

    EG 82 I'm familiar with. Would you say the F last is sleeker or rounder than the 82? (or is this the wrong kind of comparison to make?)

    Keep in mind that shoes of different sizes can look quite different in terms of proportions even if they share a common last. The following pics are all size 43:

    Here is a comparison shot - black captoe is F-last (monk is K, Tr-cognac brogue is U)

    Here is a single shot of that shoe:

    And an F-last Museum calf:

    F last is a great all-rounder, IMO. Looks great as a shoe, chukka or tall boot.

    I think the 82 last is definitely sleeker and more narrow towards the toe than the F last. The F is a bit more classic in style.

    In the next 48 hours, I will post two or three good options and request indications of interest to determine winning design(s). After that we'll open up the order book and take deposits, then get it in the production queue.

    This is happening.

    Here's hoping the original req: for the austerity boot makes the cut.

    I didn't see anybody mention it, I'm still hunting a grey and think the budapester in a grey/charcoal would kill; it could be the one.

    Love the double monk extra model shoe, but will have to wrap my head around the museum brown.

    I have that shoe on my VASS grail list, but in either plum museum or navy...

    I like Galosh & Old English. But they have two different shades. The true one is the Galosh shade, correct? I wonder if these might be more conducive to a single sole but it seems that ship has sailed...

    The Old English is in direct sunlight so it looks lighter and redder than in most settings. The closest to real life color for medium brown suede is probably that picture of the chukka
