Also a U last "London" derby in museum blue.

Need to give these some thought. Can see me enjoying my relocation to Budapest. Any thoughts?

 

These sound amazing: Also a U last "London" derby in museum blue

 

I recently acquired a pair of U-last suede chukkas. I like them a lot and wear them often during this time of year, but do sometimes feel they can be a bit incongruent if the rest of my outfit is very casual. Maybe the S-last is a happy medium for you?

My wife has pre-approved one pair. (We are also saving to buy an apartment.) And I already own a few similar pairs in brown.

Brown boxcalf with "Italian polish". (Q: What's an Italian Polish? A: a Hungarian.)

I already have a very similar black shoe from Carmina. I want an Adelaide.

Agree with others that the F last is gorgeous, but so is the U last. I am fond of the chiselled, narrow-toe look and I think it especially suits a CBD shoe, which is what this would be.

 

Thanks everyone for your interest! It's always good to get feedback, especially regarding one's inaugural purchase from a brand.

You should do what chu want wit the body, but speed hooks ≠ CBD

Is this how Vass antique cognac looks like currently? Worried that it might be too light for work.

That's 6125 cognac
Antique cognac is less reddish and slightly darker

Ok now I'm confused. LOL.

 

I've read that the antique cognac for Vass has changed over the years. Appreciate if someone could post a side by side comparison of the current Antique Cognac and 6125 Rark Cognac.

They're here, couldn't wait, 43.5 F last, perfect fit.

post #13724 of 20218

Hi All,

 

I currently wear size 7E for both Edward Green 882 and C&J 337. I should be 40.5 for Vass U last? Thanks.
