They are definitely shorter lasts, also for the R I have gone up also one width from standard too.

I do not own the R last but my experience is that 3636 is really short specially compare to P2 last (even with F last).

I just visited Vass store 2 weeks ago. I arrived in Budapest late in Saturday and the store was closed. I went again Monday morning the minute they opened. I was assisted by 2 lovely ladies the wholetime. I asked questions and they would explain carefully and patiently. They suggested me try on several models and sizes and I did.
 

Several models (Click to show)

F and U last

 

Almost went with the captoe blucher in shell

 

I really like this suede PTB in P2

 

 

I ended up purchasing these Budapester pair in P2 - bordeaux shell cordovan.


The sizing is somewhat tricky for me. At first I tried on size 45.5 in F, went down to 45 in F and U, then down again to 44.5 in P2, then finally get a very comfortable fit at 44 in P2.
I am 11.5 in brannock. I wear 11D in alden trubalance and barrie (these still have generous room overall, and I since have tried 10.5D which fit better). I also wear 10E in alden penny loafer in van last.

No JR logo on the sole

 

 

 

 

Overall a very nice experience. They said if I ever wanted to get any shoes from them, they already had my sizing written down for some of the lasts I tried and they would happily ship to Indonesia. They asked how I heard and knew about Vass to which I replied from Styleforum. They were glad and they said they have many worldwide customers who refer to the forum.

Got this booklet

 

that's me

That 3636 seems really short. Wasn't there some discussion before that they may have been mis-sized?
I'll check mine but my 42.5 3636 are my biggest fitting Vass from 7 pairs in 4 lasts and the 42 3636 is roomier than my 42.5 U and F last

Volume, yes. Length, generally no.

Pretty sure I am:

F last: 40.5G

Was amazed at the quality of the calf and construction. What an awesome value.
Thanks for posting this @sacafotos. Would be interested in how you size Carmina (Rain, Robert, Detroit) and EB (946, 363MOD) and Alden Barrie. I think we have similar sized feet and I too have a very high instep.

I size as follows:
Rain - 7.5EE great fit
Detroit - 7.5EE a touch spacious on the toes but width and instep are great
Robert - 8 great fit on width and instep. A touch long on the toes
EB 946 - 7.5UK great fit
EB 363MOD - 7UK great fit

I've been trying to nail my Vass size but suggestions range from 40.5-42.

My best fits...

Rain: 7 EEE (new wider width, could likely fit in 7 EE in softer leather: suede, lizard or Chelsea/Jodhpur config)
Oscar: 7 UK
GG MH71: 7F
Alden Barrie: 7.5E
EG 82: 7.5E UK
EB 946: 7G
Viberg 2030: 7

You could be right, may be they have mis-sized by 0.5 down.  Thanks they have good volume and have a tall wall at the toe area that I can wear them in winter time with thin socks.

 

Could P2 have been mis-sized by 0.5 up?.  They are boots so I do not know.

 

F2 in 42.5 is 30.5 cm sole lenght.  Here is fine.

 

:puzzled:

 

PS.-I had to returned before several pairs, but still very happy with Vass.

Very very nice congrats I all ways thought about getting red cognac on K or U last. How is the color in real life? Can you use it a lot or would you say it's some thing you should have to fill in the gap. Some other pictures I have seen it looks very very bright red all most like mahagony.
post #17294 of 20242

@TtownMD @peppercorn78 I am very happy and yes they are perfectly wearable in real life; a good mix between red and mahogany; the military shine and burnishing adds to the excitement of wearing them! This is an MTO from my friends at @Ascotshoes - You know you need a pair !
