looks like a better fit too. did you size up .5?

You guys keep talking about wide-fitting lasts. Do you know if the F or P2 lasts are available in a narrow-fitting?

Yes Vass has a G-width IIRC, as I read somewhere back then. But I'm rather hesitating over resorting to a wide version...I just prefer a slim lookicon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif
This is a wide version (G fit) on the U-last. Slim enough for my taste anyway.

I think the U last loo great in the G fitting.

I just tried two pairs of black cap toes at a local store. One in F last and the other in U. I really like the rounded toe shape of F last, but the U last seems to fit better. The "V-shape" of F last is also wider. 

F on the left foot and U on the right foot. Both sized EU42



As I can only afford one pair, any opinion/suggestions?

Thanks!

F looks way better than U. Biggest concern is the instep girth.

Now if anyone has doubt about F last having a lower instep...

Well, I think there is a bit of inconsistency in Vass in this respect.

I have a pair of F-last in F-fitting where the lacing is fully closed. I have another pair in the same size but in G-fitting where I have roughly 1 cm opening.
I also have a U-last in the same size and in G fitting where I need a thin insole to be able to lace them enough.

It is hard to find a consistent pattern...I love all my Vass so I do not meen to put them down, but inconsistency in sizing in my humble collection is a fact.

Dear Sirs,

About to commission an austerity brogue but can't decide between U or F last and which leather, plum or brown museum calf. I've only ever tried the F last and am certain that I size 41.5. Currently leaning towards the U last but not confident to take a gamble on size.

Which combination of options are more aesthetically pleading to you guys?

What do you guys think?
I think the Austerity look better on U, but that's only a matter of personal taste.
With regards to sizing. I wear the same in both F and U. This was also the recommendation from Mr Vass himself (through Rezsö).

I have been fortunate in the consistency of sizing with my Vass shoes.

As to fit of the F last, I suppose I could post a pic of two Oxfords, one F one U, on each foot, point to the near identical facing gap and declare "If anyone still thinks there is any difference in fit over the instep...." Perhaps I will.
