    F?

    And is that 1.5 all the way through, or does it taper to single at the waist?

    Mine is on the F Last. I figured based on what I found from my research I was safer with an F, even though they initially advertised them on eBay on the K Last. Ascott shoes is now also advertising them on the F Last. Ascott will get them on whatever Last you request them on.

    My best friend is getting married later this month, so I found something that should get him by for an informal-dress daytime wedding... here are some crappy phone pix:

    F-last in 43 in dark brown. I expect he'll get some use out of them after the event, too. If you were going to have just one pair of hand-welted shoes, there are worse choices out there, no?

    Belligero, tchoy. terradilavoro - nicely done across the board. I'd be tickled with any of those selections.
