Thanks man ill make sure to order the right size before ordering. Not sure what to get though
Can anyone identify the color and lay for the this awesome double monk? Also, how do you like the double monk vs the double monk extra? Thanks.
Hope this helps someone, my sizing in vass:

7uk rain carmina
7uk AS last 724
40.5 vass u last
Double monk is Oxblood, R last.
I've seen the R last mentioned a couple of times recently. I am not familiar with this one. How does it compare to the P2, U and F? From the one pic it seems similar to the U (square toe) but not quite as narrow toward the toe.
Definitely not the R-last. To me, it looks like K-last. Oxblood seems correct though.
R-last is a bit rounder and more traditionally British (think C&J 236-last) and a bit more rounded than F. I'd say somewhere between F and P2 in look. Haven't tried them though, so can't say much about the fit.
Great stuff here!
I am about to dive in again, looking at OE in black. I need a pair of Chelsea.
Ordered two pairs.
Alt Wien in Cognac, F last
Budapest-Oxford in Antique Cognac, F last.
That sounds like a very good selection. Classic even. I'll look forward to seeing them here when you receive them.
How is the museum calf in real life? Similar to JL?
Thanks. Just got the owner of the photo confirm that the double monk is in K last.
Yes my bad meant K wrote R, sorry for the confusion.
