I see. Following your ratio between G&G and Vass U-last my UK8 in G&G should be comparable to 42 in Vass U-last. Thanks!
Anyone else having some experience in the area?
lt depend on foot shape.
Could be between 41.5 and 42.
Some say to size up with U last .5 and other say to size up 1,
some say to size up .5 with F last and other say to buy true to size.
Problem with sizing up is the shoe can become very long for some man.
Me have G&G TG73 and C&J 348 and Vass F last.
No man can give you good advice on sizing online.
Try to fly to budapest or be prepared for the Vass not to fit so you not disappointed.
and this. Just perfect.
makes me happy that i have a pair of whiskey shells on the way. Slightly different configuration but it should work out well

By looking at creasing it look very long shoe on your foot.
ls the shoe flexing on the toes?
Many man here say to size up for certain last or size down,
but it very silly talk,
it better to accept that some last don't fit and buy a last which does fit.
A shoe on un suitable last can not be made to fit.
Here is general talk.
Some man say to size down .5 and increase width by 1.
No no NO!
Some man say to size up .5 and decrease width by .5,
no no NO!
"A shoe on un suitable last can not be made to fit"
Some can wear the F last true to size and other client need to size up .5
Shoe sizing is complex,
no definite answer,
that why many people have problem with sizing,
they simplify it to much.
Buy online and risk getting wrong size shoe or go to a Vass store,
no other option.
Could ask Vass for trial shoe or go to Hamos Gabor and ask for trial shoe and send back later.
