    this is tricky, but I'd say the 337 is more roomy in the same size of course. The F is more 'fitted' - but that could be peculiar to my feet. I'd also say the F is a bit narrower towards the end of the toe, and maybe a bit higher in the vamp. I find the F to be a superior last , but once again that's personal. I'd add that the 337, like most C&J lasts, seems to be quite a loose fit compared to Vass (and many other marques). So for example,, I take a UK 9.5 in Vass but a UK 9 in most C&J lasts, including the 337.

    :slayer: love the brown pebble. I have the exact same shoe but in 3 eylet and P2. strikes me that this is a great casual shoe, but Manton wouldn't be afraid to use it CBD. wear them in good health

    They look it...although they seem a bit more sleek/elongated than usual. I wonder if these are a size 12+? Could just be the angle of the photograph though. Regardless, great shoes!

    Strange because my F last derby dark brown suede look somewhat sleek, but more shapely than anything else. The power of Vass just bewilders us all!

    sleek and I like the way the open lacing and the extended tongue gives the shoe a bit more top - visually runs more smoothly into trews.

    Yes they are...a size 44. I took a bit of a guess on the size and they seemed to turn out OK.
