The S is much more English than Italian. Think Tricker's, Loake, vintage stuff. It was developed completely separately from the Italian lasts.

I would like to see the S next to the 337 and MH71 (both soft squares) rather than the U, where it either looks like a super fat/flat toebox, or ridiculously extended, depending on the angle.

There is one i posted earlier, you can find it in the gallery. Thats of the S last next to the TG73. Photo sourced from Ascot shoes.

Hopefully they are able to post more of the last comparison in future.

Rezso has sent me F and U lasts girth measurement today.... F last 9 size is - 25,7-26 cm. It's my feet strict :-))))) Moreover, the more I look at F lasted oxfords the more I like them....Strange.... So I have almost decided to take them in F last. Now I am becoming to consider F last not only very elegant but also... contemporary....or how to put it.... not so classic as I thought at first...

 

Do I understand correct that changing color/leather of model will be MTO with price increase? 

 

And regards shoe trees... Are 3 peace shoe trees superior to simple ones in some way? Do they stretch the shoe better? Or do they beneficial only for boots?

Incoming...

Plum Museum Slipper / Loafer in U last
Decided to finally take the gamble on the loafer. While the size/fit on the oxford is excellent, I was (and still am) a bit apprehensive on the loafer sizing since it has to be bang on.

However, I need a pair of business formal shoe which I can slip in/out easily because my work requires me to travel a lot (multiple shoes on/off at airports)

Would have preferred a lazy man but Vass does not make one.

I guess we'll know when they arrive next week...

A bit disappointed with the belt however (which came early) as it looks flimsy and doesn't look like it will last.

Satisfied with the way the shoes look so far - I just hope they fit well.

Any comment on how far up the toe puff goes for the S (basically I'm asking if they notice creasing closer to the toe due to the elongated toe box)?

You know, if you were just a 40 instead of a 38 I'd buy your KW blazer, and if you were a 42.5 rather than a 43, I might consider those WTs!

But seriously, the S last is not a bad looking last. It looks better when worn somehow, compared to when unworn and sitting next to the other lasts. The pic seems to mess up its proportions. I still find the U the most perfect of the Vass lasts (others would say F I think). I just received a gorgeous split toe on the U last in dark cognac - a replica of the shoe another gentleman posted a few pages back.

 

My next Vass will be on the F, so I can complete the set of the 4 Italian themed lasts. Yipppeee!

 



Another U-last fan checking in. Actually, I'm a fan of all three of the Italian lasts. I find F to be one of the most elegant round-toed lasts offered by any manufacturer. Very well suited to captoes in particular, IMO:

But when I count up my Vass pairs, U last rules by a healthy margin. Particularly well suited to shortwing oxfords, IMO:

And it definitely does not suck in a V-cap Adelaide:

Finally, if your toes can handle the absence of very much wiggle room, K last is absolutely killer in an asuterity brogue.

LOL, to be fair, if they were a 40, I wouldn't need to sell (I need to size up) : (

 

And @RogerP Those v-cap adelaides are great.

If you mean my pair, they are actually navy museum, though the mottling effect one expects of museum calf (as reflected in the museum gold captoes) is all but absent in this particular pair.

The 3 piece trees gives no functional advantage. But it's aesthetically pleasing.
