@Burzan You're killing it lately with the budget Iberian shoo recommendations. I bought a pair of Berwick 1707s after reading the review on your blog and liked them so much I bought another pair a week later.

Thanks @Lucido, I'm glad I can help! :fistbump:

How's the sizing compared to carmina? Particularly rain last?
From memory (only tried rain lasted shoes on once) quite similar. I sized the same from the Alan last to the Rain last.

Update: turns out the old England leather is from Ilcea, which is also where the original museum calf is produced

What's wrong with Italian shell?

Not blaming here just want to know more as I am planning to get a pair of shell soon :bigstar:
sorry, forgot to reply.

I dont have so much experience, but I got some rocado shell that I returned because it was so low quality.

Perhaps just a bad batch, but im steering away ...

Japanese shinki on the other hand, is great, comparable to horween (perhaps again a good batch...)

Horween is the best though

Based on the price point, I would say that TLB is above Carlos Santos and Yanko. However, I have no experience with the brand, other than browsing their website and looking at pretty pictures of shoes I cannot afford (been there, done that?). My question to you, kind gentlemen, therefore is:

How do their lasts compare to something more traditionally British, such as the Loake Capital last? Any particularities that you'd like to elaborate on...feel free. I need a few data points to make a judgment. My next pair will likely be a double monkstrap.

Fit just as comfortably as Loake capital does, I think the TLB instep is a HINT more generous though. Both facings on oxfords close fully for me 1 down from brannock.

Anyone tried their tassel loafers? Need to find a beater for travel, CJ 341 fits me well, but Canvadish is on 325, Carmina Forest EE fits ok, but can do with a bit higher instep, Alden’s tassel’s toebox is too tight...(up in width then heel is too wide).

If they have higher instep and tight heel then i’m game

Patine seems to have a 25% Black Friday sale running. I wish I'd known last week before ordering...
