Look for my last few pics in this thread. Pretty sure I posted a side by side of the 2 different shades. I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: found it!

You're very welcome.
Did you go for the light or dark gold?

You can specify which shade you want?

Allen Edmonds - 10D in most lasts, a few I have to size up to 10.5D.
Alden - 10D on Plaza and Grant, 9.5D on Barrie
Carmina - 9UK on Rain (slightly uncomfortable taper), Detroit, and Inca.
Vass - 43 on the F (this last is like absolutely perfect for my feet), 43.5 on the U (slightly uncomfortable taper).

This chukka is sized 43, and the fit is very similar to the F last in the same size. The overall fit is roomier but comfortable. It's also surprisingly more sleek than I first thought just looking at pictures.

Hope that helps.

Thank you. That was extremely helpful. I think Im now more confident of going 41.5 on P2 and F last. Can anyone wearing a 7.5UK carmina rain comment? Thanks!

I'm wondering this also. Or is there so much variance that two pairs of Museum Gold Calf can be that much darker/lighter than each other?

I'm visiting Europe next week and will be in Budapest for a few days. Planning to visit the Vass store. Hoping to get a few paris of shoes but had a question.

Does anyone know if they stock wide shoes? I can be a challenging fit and a standard width won't cut it.

Any other advice or thoughts from folks would also be most appreciated.

Thanks!

I take 41 in P2 and F. F has a high instep that I don't fill out. P2 is good but a touch roomy overall. I take 7.5UK in Carmina rain and find it good everywhere but the heel, which is loose.

Thanks! If already able, do you mind posting comparo pics of your rain last shoes and P2 and F. Also would appreciate a PM for list of your AE, Carmina and Vass sizes.

 

I think we share roughly the same size, but I do have a very high instep so I am borderline next size in some lasts (especially those with low insteps) when compared to your sizing.

Yes gents they are both gold museum. You can specify which shade you prefer but I don't know the different names

I thought you couldnt do this anymore since they ran out of the older museum calf and now strictly use Ilcea? I recall someone mentioning that previously.

My Gold museum is different than these two as well! Closer to the lighter shade.

 

I am digging the darker shade.

That is correct no two shade color options are given now or mention on the site.
