The birdseye photo looks like the F last - but the front toe photo looks like their R or New PIII last...
I think Vass RTW range isn't as extensive in comparison to GG...But going down the MTO route with Vass will give you more options with little to no sur-charge than GG.   I own several GG, they are light and soft - build quality not as solid as Vass. IMHO. 
Isn't that a bloody good thing for us forum members and worldwide Vass owners. Imagine if they realise the potential value of their brand in comparison to other high end shoe makers - pound for pound they are miles ahead in quality; craftmenship and value for money.   I am comparing my €500 Vass boots to my €950+ Prestige Lobbs/SCrispins & Corthays and now struggling to justify paying double for these brand again. I see little difference apart from name and....price!...
May I ask what colour these beautiful Vass Monk are derived from? As they look different in your 2 photos....   I love the last, are they the K last? I need to take this photo to John Lobb and ask them to copy Vass!! 
Not enough s€x
No no no....   €95 was referring to the belt I was quoted. I ordered 2 pairs of MTO's and wanted matching belts to go with the suede/scotchgrain and calf.   Think the belts were €95, then they reduced the belts down to €50 as goodwill, as I was ordering 2 pairs of MTO's.  Pictures to come shortly....I think I need to change my profile name to Ilovevass, don't think I have seen any Lobbs as stunning as my Vass.    I had a choice of shipping to my UK...
I have been told its a blended version of the R and P2 last....   3636 is a "friendlier" version of the Chunky Budapester last. 
I spoke to Razor, and suggest they call their new last: "U2"   Will be posting my boots once my DSLR arrives...
+1   Totally agree - I just ordered 2 pairs of MTO direct from them.   After a few emails to clarify my size, colour; style and sole requirement Razor was ready to accept my order.  What also helped was my experience with Lobbs and EG shoes.  I told him my size and last on those makes, an this bought the margin of error down to possibly 5%.  
Think I was oringally quoted €95 over the phone.   Then they reduced down to €50 - as I order 2 pairs of MTO ;-)   Time to Market & Communication is key for Vass - then again Cleverleys and EG can take upto 6-8 months to make a bloody pair of MTO.
