    Does anyone else have pictures of this (or other) F-Last austerity brogues?

    Here you go... mine in mid-brown suede. The oxblood is lovely as well.

    Is this an F-Last austerity brogue in oxblood? If so, that is the exact shoe that I am thinking of ordering. Does anyone else have pictures of this (or other) F-Last austerity brogues?

    Thanks a lot!


    not oxblood but bordo shell!

    some more pictures for you;

    Congrats on pulling the trigger, although expect loads of PMs asking how you managed to get hold of Eva, secret password, etc. [​IMG]

    alright, i really appreciate that you took your time for an expanded explanation of the characteristics.

    that's what at least is it for me what cuts the mustard.


    Now I have to back off a little. I did some flying today and chose the Vass for comfort at altitude. Since I had some spare time, I also invested in an airport shoeshine, which I don't normally do. Especially on this pair, since I'd been somewhat brainwashed into not putting polish on shell Cordovan.

    Anyway, the shoes look a lot better-- a little slimmer for being darker, with the shine emphasizing the top surface and therefore making it look less like a potato-shaped monolith.

    Still not as elegant on my Size 45 feet as in the catalogue, but a lot better than before. Even so, I think my next 3636s will be the Budapest or Norweger (or maybe Teresianer).
