Location of the tannery in question btw, https://goo.gl/maps/RMpAEvhuaav. Note though that the county side of Sweden are not that well covered by Street View and similar. 

I have both. The vass one feels thinner.

I always like alfalfa in my sandwiches.

I am still waiting for No Man Walks Alone to re-stock a pair of F last oxfords. It shall be my one and only black dress shoe.

Hey guys, according to ascot shoes, F fits similarly to U. U last does not fit me and im into rounder lasts recently.

Have tried searching for sizing advice on R, P2 and Peter last but most posts do not have comparisons with Carminas - the only brand I have.

Carmina Rain, Inca UK8. Tried in-store and fit is great.
Simpson UK8.5, fits well apart from the joint below the pinky toe (small portion below the toe box)

Vass: Tried very briefly.
Vass F last: 42 length slightly long, could put a finger in.
U last 41.5 tight in toe-box, instep is high too, could put a finger in

Seems Iike U and F aren't compatible.

I've asked Reszo for his advice but would also like 'real-world' advice.

Thank you very much.

According to Mr. Kuti, U and F are the same up to the toe box, after which F has more room than U.

This is correct. I take the same size in both. Some guys don't.

Here's made to order Vass schüs with F-last, burgundy suede, their newer double monk model, double-to-single tapered oak bark soles, brass buckles, undyed welt top and white stitching. The shade is very difficult to capture with my poor-ass camera, but I'd describe it as a dark red with plenty of brown in it. Ruddy in sunshine, browner indoors - the top-down picture shows it best.

Please take some pics when you wear these out.  Must see them in the wild.

I'm a UK9 in Rain and Forest, a 43 in P2 and F, and 43.5 in U. As Roger mentioned, some people go up .5 in U and some don't. I'm one that has to go up.

CanadaCal, alrighty, might as well add a shot to my Insta account. We finally have some light up here in Finland after that Northern winter...you Canadians know what I mean.

Anyone know what the material is for the shoe that's one back from the front? Looks like kudu maybe?

And have these incoming for me... 

 

The thought was a fall/winter shoe to wear with flannel suits and trousers for the office. Unfortunately, they were delayed so I missed the season... but will look forward to next year.
