@agedashidofu - those are sweet, man - congrats!
Thanks a lot Roger!
If you're wearing 7UK on GG, my guess is that you'll be wearing the same size in the U last - which would be 41 (my U-last sizing is exactly the same as my GG Deco / TG73.)
One watch-out is that Vass (any last) has a very high instep. If you have low instep, I would stay away from Vass.
I'd go with the same size as in G&G MH71 i.e. 41. I take 41.5F (wide) in MH71 and 41.5G (wide) in Vass U-last.
Latest Kop from Vass - U Last V-Cap Adelaide in Brown Museum Calf (Tannery: Bonaudo)
Got these ordered before I knew that Ilcea was back in business (would've waited otherwise.) However, I'm quite pleased w/ the outcome. Looks really mottled. I've also included a comparison picture w/ Meermin's plum museum calf from Haas (which looks more misty & subtle than mottled.) At one point, Vass was using Haas for their museum calf, but then decided to change to Bonaudo (I believe it's the right decision.)
Can't wait to wear them. This one will find its maiden voyage first thing Monday morning!
I am actually contemplating the exact make up in the same style, leather, last and colour. Was the use of the white thread for stitching a special request or did Vass exercise their discretion ?
Won't be much of a cost if it goes wrong, they will simply exchange the shoe for you.
Might depend on US/UK sizes quoted, but yea seems weird.
