    I can't tell the difference between the 19 and 48 lasts. [​IMG]

    The 19 is more pointed and is similar to say the EG 82, where as the 48 is more soft square - perhaps somewhere between a 202 and 606. IMO, the welt on the 48 has not been trimmed to follow the contours of the toe shape very accurately. It appears overly rounded with little to no evidence of the soft square last on which it was made.

    Far left = 48, middle = 19

    It's a very close call. I was really impressed by the AS when they first arrived but continue to be equally impressed with the EG MTOs. It is worth noting that the MTOs (as opposed to sale shoes) are better finished, especially in the waist where a distinct yet subtle fiddle is present. It's not as prominent as the AS, more a gentle arc but appealing none the less.

    Alfred Sargent wholecut Tavistock (220 GBP at pediwear picture attached) look very similar to Dunhill (350 GBP) - though the dunhill I checked in Dunhill's Dubai store was very attractive brown with antiquing. Can anybody advise who makes Dunhill shoes. The ones I checked in their Dubai store read hand made in italy. Can anybody advise if Dunhill shoes are a good deal?

    The shoe options in Dubai are very limited, therefore I would appreciate if anybody could advise please. There is a Lobb shop here (Prestige goes for around 850 GBP; RL EG made 950 GBP) Many thanks.
