Mine is roughly the same as yours

Simpson 8uk (perfect fit with about 2mm gap at the heel when I pushed my feet towards the front)
Uetam 7.5uk (snug but has break in and perfect now)
U last 42 F width (similar to Simson)
I have yet to try 41.5 on U last. Maybe I should go just that in my next order
post #14448 of 20276
what's the standard width when you order direct from Vass?

I assume the recommendation would be a U last in size 42E?

Vass use F for standard.  As do Church's, Cheaney, Loake, Barker, Grenson, Alfred Sargeant.

 

G&G, C&J, EG and some others use E for standard.  Easy to be confused - I bought G width C&J not realising that this was extra wide for them.  

 

So bear in mind that different makers all use different designations - "E" is not standard size.  For Vass it would be narrow.  And in the US of course, wide.

^^^ I need to preserve this post somewhere. I am always forgetting what is standard for what manufacturer.

@RogerP Thanks!

Just an additional heads up on the Vass policy.

The 10% cash discount and VAT deduction cannot be combined. You will have to decide what is better for you.

I believe the Hungarian VAT is 27%, however, I think it is not possible to have the full percentage amount of VAT back. It ranges from 13-15% as the agency refunding is taking a vast amount for it self..Correct me if I'm wrong.

Perhaps the chance you get the full VAT back is when you personally come back to the store again after you have left the Hungary with the custom stamp confirmation goods have left the EU.

I clicked the thumbs up button for this post, not sure what that means/does other than register my approval, are the thumbs up searchable?

I'm not sure why this makes sense. If you're reclaiming your VAT at the airport (the "agency" you mention) then Vass has nothing to do with it and the discussion should be separate from your cash discount. If the VAT reduction is direct from Vass then there shouldn't be an "agency" and it's the straight 27%, which far exceeds the cash discount...although should still be separate.

I've only paid with a card, so no cash discount, but I've received the full VAT reduction.

I suspect that some of the confusion over VAT deduction from Vass might be a result of a rather...er..."Greek" attitude to paying it?  Wouldn't want to do them a disservice, but...maybe.

I think it's because in case you decide to opt for the VAT refund they have to issue you a fiscal receipt and therefore to declare a sold pair of shoes to the state of Hungary and their "IRS".

In case you choose to pay in cash and opt for a 10% discount they just do not declare the sold pair at all to the IRS, and have a internal book of sold pairs. It is a common thing done in most east European states. The 10% cash discount is something that would a local guys have most use of, as they cannot have the VAT back, and better to have a cash discount than nothing .. Not so much use for the foreigners as even with the agency commission, the VAT refund will still be more than a 10% in any case.
