    Excuse the double post, but i had another question: what colours of cordovan look good on a norweger with natural soles/stiching? I've seen whiskey and cigar that both looked good -what about dark brown or antique cognac? Really liking the norweger lately.

    Here is a pic of the antiq cordo Norwegers I sold a few weeks ago. Not a natural sole, but you get the idea. The best shade for Norwegers IMHO. [​IMG] Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    Beautiful. I don't suppose you have anything in antique cognac and could provide a side by side comparison? Anyone else?

    Sure. I'll post one tomorrow.

    goyserer welt is very suitable though it depends on your personal purpose of the shoe.

    Can't wait for mine too - i ordered the same, but went for f last, we'll see what the sizing difference is. Would be interested in getting a norweger next time around.

    Is that an F last double monk? If so, please post pics... I can only find U last double monks but prefer the fit of F last.

    Bordeaux cordovan in P2 last
    Bordeaux calf in F last


    Is the P2 a bit more forgiving/wider in the forefoot than the F last?

    I had my heart set on an F-last oxford but have heard that it might not be the best last for my foot (wide forefoot, narrow heel).

    FWIW, I have a narrow heel myself and find that the F last hugs quite nicely, better than the 888, 337 or 8000.

    Is there anyone who gets same sizes on both F and U lasts or do most people go half a size down on F last?
