Has anyone tried both Goya and Picasso? Any suggestion/preference for which last to use for a pair of Chelseas/Jodhpurs?
It basically comes down to what toe shape you want.

Picasso is definitely squared, and Goya is definitely a pointed round toe. What toe shape do you prefer?

On a Chelsea, I personally would choose Goya.

They fit the exact same - Purely a matter of toe shape and what you like. My chelseas are all on a chiseled lasts because that's my personal preference.

Choose the one you think is best looking. The Vegano brown one below is on Picasso, the Vegano dark brown on Goya.

Goodness they both look absolutely gorgeous.

The picasso is maybe a hair too squared off for me but the Velasquez looks a nice balance, really hope I can order it in G width eventually
Velazquez can be ordered in G width. Maybe not in TLB's MTO system yet, but it's possible. Don't think there's a boot version of the Velazquez last yet though.

Damn! The Picasso in that chelsea looks amazing!

I'm just waiting confirmation from Skolyx that they have available the shoe trees and I think I will get my first TLB. Still decding if I should go with dark brown suede or burgundu calf penny loafers.

Jesper, are you no longer collaborating with Skolyx?

Oh I am, but since we're not affiliates anymore I'm not allowed to mention anything on it.

Just placed a custom order for some hatch grain boots. I can't wait to receive them. As usual, Toni is the best. He is very helpful, communicates quickly, and is quite flexible in accommodating my requests.

where is the Hatch Grain option? Toni wrote me yesterday saying that samples are ready but not the option yet.

I talked to him directly. They said it would be available in a week or two, but I was able to order it now. He sent me a picture of a pair they made with hatch grain, but asked me not to share it.

Time will tell as I've only worn them once, but I feel that G will break in nicely.
Update on this. After 3 wears, my oxfords on the Goya last fit like a glove. They fit better than anything I own - better than AE, Carmina and Crockett and Jones which I thought all fit very well. I was skeptical of Toni's advice to get a G width and I was convinced I should buy H, but his advice was spot on and he knows his stuff.
