I'm unsure how exactly that translates to the New Peter or the F lasts, but I doubt getting anything smaller than 45 would be wise.

Also, I would be quite concerned about the Italian lasts in that kind of size - they don't look the best in the larger sizes IMO

If you're feet are on the wider side I'd lean towards a 45. If on the narrow side a 44.5 quote]

thanks for al the help, guys. Sounds like I need a 45 in either the F last or P2 last. i have a regular width foot and a normal arch.

Anyone have a picture of the "berkeley" oxford on the P2 last? I'm trying to gauge which vass last (F or P2) is closer to this:

Funny you should ask as I love that pair of Manton's as well. I was considering the same thing, but at the end of the day Oxfords are tough on my left foot's higher instep. I went with the pair below and they are on the F last and work very well. Unless the P2 fits you better, I'd aim for the F as it's a bit more classic like these. I also went with a single sole which worked very well as opposed to my go-to double tapering to single.

Both F and P2 fit great, I also found these, although they are clearly more F than P2:

3 eyelet blucher on last similar to F.

Now that's a man with taste.

None that I know of. You could try calling Vass direct.

Styleforum member "Kolecho" is a very good seller. Does a few orders a year if you wanted to place one with him. He's very helpful.

There's also member "Trombone":

I've purchased shoes from him before (not via this forum) and he's very reasonable. I believe he can get hold of other models / sizes. Drop him a message.

Hope that helps.

fwiw, going direct one can benefit from the low HUF.

For sure. Going direct is the way to go if possible. I've not tried for a year or so. Was quite difficult when I tried.

Also Budapest is a great city. Perfect for a weekend break - a great excuse to order a couple of pairs.

Bring back the Schilling too!! Everything is weak versus Dollars these days (except Swiss) - You are seriously right about the HUF man... It can make a real impact on your purchases in Budapest
