In April 2014 of this thread rikod made a post saying with 90% confidence that unless you have wide or fat feet, you should take 40.5 in F last if you normally wear 7UK. And since most people wear the same F and U last size, I would take a 40.5 using his scale.

Also, I've never tried a tongue pad or insole on shoes before so that could be a possibility but I'd rather have a shoe that just fits as is without these modifications.

Agreed - I did have the same issue, the hardest thing is the ability to size correctly with a new brand especially online if you have not physically tried on the shoe IMO. Following the advise of others on here when I posted photos of the initial pair I received, I returned and I sized down and the fit is now perfect. For the money spent I didn't want to go with the option of heel or tongue pad having already previously owned some mis-fitting shoes and NEVER going down that route again.
You won't be disappointed once you get the right ones!

I'm normally 7UK and I took a 41. There was contradicting information in this thread and I was debating taking a 40.5.

 

This worries me - I faced the same dilemna and went for the half size bigger rather than the smaller as I was worried I wont have enough length. I have 2 incoming in around 2 weeks time in the U and K last.

I posted it several times before, but will post it again.
For smaller sizes in Vass, stick to the following chart and you will be fine.
If between sizes, take the smaller one.

UK6 = EU39,5
UK6.5 = EU40
UK7 = EU40,5
UK7.5 = EU41
UK8 = EU41,5

Back to back days in Vass U-last wingtips. Spectators with haf-sole: Hosting provided by FotoTimeHosting provided by FotoTime And (finally!) the maiden voyage of the Red Cognac pair with goyser stitch and full double sole: Hosting provided by FotoTimeHosting provided by FotoTime No, the haf-sole pair did not feel "unbalanced" in any way. :-)

Looks great, RogerP. I really like the spectators.

Is red cognac the same as bordeaux? If not, any idea what the difference is in terms of shade?

The only thing that is unbalanced here is the number of pairs of Vass that you have versus the rest of us... :-))

Really like the red cognac!!! So tempted...this forum is super dangerous!

Don - no - Red Cognac is more of a red/brown mix than Bordeaux, which is more of a light burgundy.  Red Cognac is brighter / more vibrant overall than the more subdued Bordeaux.  Bordeaux is likely the more versatile shade as between the two.

Thanks. Either way, yours look great. I have a pair of C&J Westbourne in chestnut that I usually match with tan trousers. You confirmed that I'm doing the right choice with your picture. smile.gif

I prefer the gray ... but the others are really nice.

Australian tanned Brown kangaroo. Hints of purple within. Lovely soft, supple hand to the leather.







And a pair of Vass chukka boots made from the same leather.

^Those are sick. Kangaroo's the toughest leather out there, I read. Is Vass offering it now?
