I'm new here & this forums moderation/admin is frustratingly slow. My posts are held for 12 hours or so before being posted.
I am new and my posts are being held for moderation, sometimes for upto 12 hours. It's Sh*t basically.
noted. looking forward to your real life posts.
I respect your opinion...I myself have a F last and do like it. Its when I start comparing to the 3636 and Budapesters (True Austro-Hungarian lineage) the aesthetics, contours, shape and most importantly the balance and fit is just not there...
This doesn't mean its a inferior last, but definetely not one of the greatest last ever.. to me.
Quite candidly I prefer to wear my Alden/peal monk anyday over my F....
I am curious about new Peter last lately. Although I don't have a soft spot for traditional A-H lasts, I like the anatomic contours, that asymmetrical curve that New-Peter last has. I am not sure which model to get on that last though.
curious, why are you going for vass then?
I think the Peter last looks the best on a split toe Norweger:
I respect your opinion too, btw i have that peal monk in brown and i really like it, I wear them quite often.
I also recommend the new peter last, in case you don't own one yet, it looks beautiful in the plain toe derbies and theresianer.
I agree, if I order the Vass norweger one day it will be on that last. Beautiful shoe.
The London - plain toe derbies in scotch grain look very good
Never miss a chance to pound on my poor aldens
it's a reflex.
can you explain the difference between new peter and peter?
Good question, I'm not sure. They look very similar. The Vass catalog recommend the norweger ST "on our Peter last, since the hand-sewn vamp looks best on this symmetric last with a rounder cap form". The P2 doesn't look that symmetrical, maybe that is the difference. I don't have any shoes in the Peter to compare.
I agree, as I said before in one of my comments earlier you have taste.
This shoe looks beautiful, is this Antique Cognac?
Thanks, I'm not sure but they look like antique cognac
