    Some strange statements being made here about shoes and lasts - and with a fairly authoritative tone too... :confused:

    Sorry, I don't feel the need to preface everything i say with "IMO"

    It should be inferred and obviously everyone else has their own opinions too.

    I should note that i've got in trouble for this before so maybe their is something to my tone. W/e, I'm not under any illusions that what i say is gospel. Take it as an opinion.

    I am aware this is your opinion - strange statements nonetheless. All the C&J lasts are too sexy but the pointy round toe wholecut Carminas you posted are not? How does that work exactly - they look straight out of a modern dandy's closet. Not a great way to illustrate your point IMO

    dont worry. i put 15 or so things in my dream box and narrowed it down to 6 or 7 (and ill prob only kop 2 or 3). youll find that most of the stuff you want is fueled by hype.


    this is the kind of insider info i like to hear :cheers:

    perhaps not a perfect illustration - that last doesn't look good as a wholecut.

    I guess this just boils down to me not liking elongated chisel lasts like the 348 that are particularly revered here. The Carmina second from the left looks perfect to me. Looking through C&J's catalogue, it does seem that they also do nice round toe lasts. the 341 looks good.

    I got the CPs 30% off, and tbh I'm pretty sure I'll be happier/get more use out of them than anything that showed up on yoox. Just a little frustrating haha.

    Yeah he was a cool dude. His necklaces all looked like AnnD stuff, but he had layers and layers of sheer rick stuff on. Definitely stood out when he was talking to the client :happy: Real nice guy, and good friends with Peter Stormare ? I dunno why he told me that but; insider info!

    No shortage of future B&S listings and bitchassness in the sales & recent purchase threads.

    Oh, you're talking about Stakka Bo, or Johan Renck as he is known nowadays.
