    those are pretty nice.

    just wondering, that you have a good fit in three different lasts?

    Very nice. Especially like the austerity brogues. What color are they?

    I'll admit there's some variation in terms of fit. The F last definitely fits best, it has the width and the smaller toe box that is just right for my feet. For the U last I went up half a size to get the width right and then use a thin insole to get the fit on par with the F last. The new Peter is fit wise the weakest, the toe box is a little too roomy and the instep is a hair lower than would be ideal, but neither of these compromises causes discomfort even after a full day wearing.

    It's called 6125 or 'dark cognac', I think my favorite colour out of the vass palette.

    that's the signature of these kind of shoes. trust me.

    the instep, as you said, shouldn't be a problem with the open lacing.

    Can anyone point me to pics of just a solid black captoe in either (both) the U and F lasts?

    thanks!

    thanks, their website does a poor job of showing just how nice the F-last is for some of them.

    really? it's one of the better sites, i have seen.

    for sheer variety of lasts and styles it's great. Not so good on showing different views and magnifications of one style. New Alfred Sargent site is exemplary
