I agree, but I really prefer sprung lasted trees: it seems to me that they make a higher and uniform pression to the insole, specially at the toe area. Anyway, Vass 3 pieces shoe trees are sublime.

What? I'm not "that guy"- wait, maybe I am.
Just realized that the shoes are good camo for cheap furniture

BTW- I have used a great proxy from SF. He's patient, accommodating and truly concerned with getting it right. After my experiences with him, he may not want to be associated with me, but I will always testify to his exceptional service and follow up skill.

Antic cognac is a deep reddish brown. Not quite burgundy, but I'd say from pictures online it's somewhat like Mahogany or Color #6 shell. Maybe color 4.

I have no clue what deep cognac is. I liked photos of antic cognac so I ordered it.
I would say the 41 F bal instep is higher than than the Rain in 7.5UK. My 7.5UK Rain bals do not lace all the way shut, but the F bals I tried in 41 did.

I tried on P2 in a blucher so I don't really notice instep height. I did not notice it being too low or too high. Probably comparable to Rain, but less confident in saying that.

Thanks! If that's the case looks like F in 41 would work. From pictures they look to be same in width right?

Looking forward to it! Thanks!

Carmina Simpson UK 7.5 (A little snug at the width, but still bearable)

Vass f last - 41 (best fit)
Vass u last - 41 (snug on the width, probably have to size up by half)

Hi there. 

 

Vass does use museum calf from Ilcea I believe. In all honesty I feel that Vass' museum calf is better. I have not had any of the Vass MC show the "veiny"pattern earlier described by the gent on SkoaB's thread. 

I also feel that Vass' MC is more supple. 

The only problem I had so far is with the gold museum due to the large inconsistencies in getting the right colour. 

As the gents here have mentioned previously, one shade is extremely dark, the other is considerably lighter. 

Eventually I needed to get a pair re-done.

For lasting I really prefer the standard shoe tree.  But 3 pieces shoe tree is a wonderful piece of work, IMO.

I believe the standard, sprung trees are based off the last but mine don't fit as well as the 3 piece ones did.

Are three piece shoe trees only available for whole sizes? So, those with half sizes are out of luck? And are they really lasted?

Yes, only whole sizes and if they aren't lasted they're the best fitting non-lasted trees I've ever seen; the fit was perfect

Red Cognac is not the same as either, IMO - it's one of the more distinctive shades within the "red" range. I'd describe it as a red / brown / orange. It is certainly different from either Vass Oxblood or Bordeaux.

That said, colour comparisons are pretty subjective, and even photos can't always tell the story because how they present on different monitors is unknown. Not to mention differences in lighting / camera / image processing etc. Then there's the fact that what's "too close" for one person will me "sufficiently different" for another.

My Red Cognac, FWIW.

I thought it came from Bonaudo Tannery.
