    they have more than one, though you can request the correct name with the picture.
    Correct, they have several lasts. The real name of the last pictured above, is "chiseled." That's why I put it in quotes. My model 215 St. Crispins are on their "classic" last pictured here. http://www.saint-crispins.com/215_single.html

    they have three or four if not more chiseled lasts, which are slightly different. that's what mr. car told us on monday in the new showroom. all off their 14 or 15 lasts were on display. from variations of classic, slightly squared to chiseled on a 30:30:30 ratio.

    My newly arrived (and first pair of) Saint Crispin's:

    I can really testify to what others have said about Mr. Car; he has been a true gentleman and a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process.


    Congratulation on your first pair of Saint Crispins, some how I don't think they'll be your last pair.

    This is exactly what I specified in my order.

    Anyhow, I am extremely satisfied with how they came out.

    I imagine that would need to be a MTO request from EG.

    That's what I was afraid of...may have to go with the EG Beaulieu.

    I'd give EG a call, they maybe able to advise on alternatives and the options available.

    Or consider the C&J Drummond. I really like mine. I think the lines are a little sleeker than the EG. [​IMG]
