    oh ok so they are me last then[​IMG]

    facepalm is overrated in general.

    me and you are established in ordering custom made shoes, so the question doesn't ring through.

    for beginners: the last shape is hard to imagine though we had all going through this decision process - have fun. it's wonderful,

    Here is a pair of bespoke shoes I got a few months agoo. I am sure you can guess witch one[​IMG]
    very happy with them...sort of DECO like in their shape..maybe you could say they were ahead of there time and now time has cought up.
    The pic was taken by the maker before they were polished and the seatsock put in....(I couldnt wait to see them.)

    i think the deco shape is something that G&G have made on and off from the start as looking back at my first pairs of G&G bespokes they have very simular lines to the deco last

    it is just that over shinning shoes and photos dont really blend well

    interesting shoes BTW

    I thought Koji's trees usually look different. Nice banana shaped last though.

    it's more homegrown. our craftsmen are capable to implement the various style influences. a fact which is unfortunately fairly ignored on sf.

    Except for the toe cap "” yes. I might go with a bit less stitching on the next pair but generally I am very satisfied wih the outcome. Most shoe uppers are way to fussy for my tastes.

    then you should have just done it without the cap but a faux cap then or have a look at the G&G hanly as a concept
