This group buy is set to clear Vass out of shell cordovan.
 Not Rob but had a spin in a A45 when they came out. If the CLA45 is similar, it's a great buy.
 Have a pair of the wingtips in 11D which fit well, which is 1/2 size down from bannock for me, wondering if the consensus was down another half a size (I seem to remember this being the case) or if it was the same size as the wingtips.
Gents: Giannis, half a size down from Marlow Wingtips?
 Hey I didn't know you could buy Barrie last blanks 
 About the same for me. Putting aside hand vs goodyear welting (I'll leave the relative merits of either out of here, it's been talked to death already.), the calf is similar, maybe an edge to Vass, Vass has more flexability with designs, but C&J finishing/antiquing is better. Vass you can't try on but Rezso is great to deal with, you'll also be waiting 4-6 weeks even if you order a stock style as they keep little inventory.  I like Vass, personally, as the lasts fit me...
 Think you submit your makeup, then get a price back, then confirm/pull out.
 This was done for me without asking on both of my single sole pairs. 
 I would suggest avoiding the Uetam last if you are an extrawide in the Rain, they seem to be polar opposites in terms of fits as far as lasts go (Uetam/Simpson are long and slim, Rain is shorter and wider).
