Thanks for your response. Is it common to size up one full size between F and U? or you're implying that a 39.5 U might also fit properly?

Hello all - my first post on the Vass thread.  Here are a couple indoor pictures of a new pair of Vass MTO on the P2 last (my favorite fit), standard cap toe (model 1030) in a dark cognac cordovan with dainite sole.  The shell has way more brown variation in the sun, and will age beautifully I hope.  These will get a ton of wear!

Just received plum museum shoes, with surprisingly uniform color, which is not "museum" enough for me. Is there anything i can do to bring more character (maybe sun exposure)?

 

Also, can somebody recommend belt to match plum museum?

 

Thank you

Some people take same F and U. Others size down a half size from U to F. I was using conjecture based on all your measurements. Best you speak with someone who sells Vass directly for the best advice. Good luck.

He was simply asking what he can do if he is not happy with museums effect I told him he should buy higher end brand shoe. Reason for that is it will give him what he is looking for. He can't do any thing to Vass museums to change it.

I was under the impression that Vass uses the same Museum Calf as Lobb.  I have actually heard a lot of good comparisons of Vass's museum calf over say, Bonafe. How would spending more money solve the problem?

May use the same source as Lobb but most definitely not the same quality as Lobb.

Vass is better than Bonsfe that's personal to me they look same. But John lobb is total different animal. Even though they are from same tannery but leather quality & affect is not the same. I am not saying Vass museums is bad I am just answering the guy question. Since he is not happy with the museums out come.

He just got a hide that wasn't as mottled, I can see it being a bit disappointing too.  That is the allure of the museum calf after all.  Lobb is likely just more selective in what makes it to production.  Perhaps they get premium hides at a premium?  Who knows.  

 

Either way, if it doesn't shoe museum effects, hi shine it or burnish it in areas and make it work because its easy to wear and a great color for footwear.
