A far as i can tell, and please correct me if i am wrong, The TLB Artista Black Captoe Oxford is on a on a Goya Last (round last). The GMTO by The Hanger Project is on a more chiseled last (Maybe the Picasso Last?)

Is there a difference between the Goya and Picasso last in terms of width in the toe area?

Separate question is how does the fit compare to Carmina Rain in terms of toe width and instep? Earlier a poster said that TLB gives a bit more room in the toes but not overall foot. Looking at the photos, it doesn't seem like TLB isn't that roomy? Would something like the Yankos in G width be roomier?

Toes of the two Artista lasts are very similar in fit. The look that differs.

I would say it’s correct that you have a little bit more space at the ball area than on many other lasts, while still having it nice and snug at the arch and heel. Instep is pretty normal. In Sweden we generally have slightly wider feet and here people love the fit of the Artista (and regular TLB) lasts, that said, we also have had American customers with more narrow feet where they work well as well, so not extremely wide. Actually quite similar to Yanko G (which is a pretty narrow for being G width, somewhere in between F and regular G one could say).

Sizing reference:
I wear size 8E (standard) for John Lobb 7000 last, will be better if it is a tard wider at the toes.
I wear size 8F (standard) for TLB Artista Picasso last which fits very well.

Just read this post when I got on the train to Bristol wearing a pair of TLBs! My experience is that the Rain last from Carmina is very good. I have fairly normal shaped feet and they fit a treat. But I personally I find the TLB more comfortable. The Carmina shoes fit well, great shape etc, but the TLB artista shoes need no breaking in and are a perfect fit in every area.

Has anyone seen the TLB Adelaide Oxford (either regular line or artista) done on a chiseled last? Reason I ask is most other brands do their adelaide on a chiseled last but from all the pics of TLB that I have seen online including what is carried by retailers its done on a round last.

Sure. For Artista we have it on both classic round Goya and the soft chiseled Picasso last at Skolyx, see below.



For regular range it's made for almond toe Oliver as standard, but can be had on soft square Alan as well. I've seen it in the factory showroom, don't have any pics of it though. But know that Patine has a version with a medallion, and we at Skolyx did a GMTO of an austerity adelaide before, both shown below.

Is that the Vegano Brown and Dark brown? I've got the same one in the Oliver last but my brown isn't as dark as yours.
They're Vegano Brown. I did shine them with some Saphir shoe wax a bit. :)
