    I got the same size as F. It's definitely a longer last. Fits like a G&G TG73 in length. It's not the best fit but not bad for a wholecut. The U was great but the instep was high. I might try a modified U with a lower last next time.

    Hopefully the extra length will help with toe space!

    Thanks man.

    I actually feel like F is way more roomy all around than U in the same size.

    I don't own any GG sadly. :(

    Anyone have photos to post to get an idea for a dark brown suede shoe? I need ideas. Will take F last.

    I agree with @Notch on this one. I have Rains in 8.5 which is reasonably comfortable and F in 42.5 and I'm kind of swimming (may sell them and have them remade as a 42, or even 41.5, as a result). Both are Oxfords.

    I would think about OE2's in Oxblood. Can be worn with the wardrobe choices you mention elsewhere or with suits. Another choice would be Budapest Oxfords, also in Oxblood.

    I'm in the same exact boat, unfortunately. I'm a 7 UK in all my shoes including Carmina Rain, EB 946 and Carlos Santos 358. I got a size 41 Oxblood Austerity Brogue in the F last and they're way too big for me. They're too wide and there's also no gap between the laces whatsoever, and I always thought that my insteps were slightly on the high end. I inserted some pads in them and they've made no difference. Sadly, I'm going to have to put them up for sale.

    I love the look of the F last and want to give it another go but I don't know if I should go 40 or 40.5. Thoughts?

    This just shows how difficult fitting advise is, it all depends on the shape of one's feet. I wear 8 uk in carmina rain last and 42 eu in vass f last. Vass fits me better because of the tighter waist and heel. I have a really high instep and f last accomodates it well (I still have some gap between the laces).

    P2 size 43.5 H (extra wide) in red brown suede with 270 goyser. Glad you like it! Reminded me I need to wear them soon.

    It's truly like the Galway, endless possibilities!

    Proof as well that combining various shades of brown/earth tones is an art form all on its own. Those look like they'd pretty much match anything!

    You're right, it's so tricky. Now I really don't know what to do. If only I could try them on. Oh well!

    This combo would never have occurred to me to be perfectly honest. But I think it's an absolute winner and agree that it would likely be very versatile.

    I'm having to duct tape my wallet shut as we speak to prevent that. I have a pair of boots on order with them that I expect will be ready soon so I'm trying hard to be rational / responsible and other boring stuff like that.

    It's difficult to capture the beauty, depth and subtlety of Gold Museum...
