    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.

    That sounds like a very good selection. Classic even. I'll look forward to seeing them here when you receive them. :)
