Yes it's the Old English plain (#62) in saddle shell cordovan.

Actually, I ordered the OE II and received this one. Apparently, they figured I had too many brogued shoes and sent this one. And they were right!, I was delighted with the mistake and didn't even mentioned it to Reszo, this guys are geniuses.

Regarding size, I tried them on and think they are between half to a whole size too big, which makes me kind of happy, as I am not returning them solely for stylistic reasons.
Will go with 40.5 as I think even if it might still be slightly too big I will be fine with an insole, while 40 might be too small and I don't want to have them stretched as both instep and heel feel great the way as is.
Slippage in the heel is solely due too excess length and very lightly opened lacing with no excess volume but no pressure what so ever.
I have some spare volume in bending area of the toe box but this is due to my very flat forefoot and I have not found a last yet that works better for my feet in this regard.

Ok, it will work out for you now with the correct size & style, I don't like that model without a cap toe.

rikod, may I ask how many pairs of Vass you own?
What percentage of your overall shoe rotation would that be?

Recommended a 1/2 size bigger for me too, luckily I followed advice here.

Very nice starting collection, but you need to triple it before you call yourself a shoe afecinado, rookie!

lol,

Actually I have a rule that if I want a new pair I have to sell another one so I don't collect shoes and spend much more, but I'm running out of options to sell, I have kept the ones I really like to wear and fit perfect.

The latest I received was the Alden PTB in whiskey (inlove.gif), so a C&J had to go. I waited 11 months for the Alden!

Oh boy...regardless of any language problems, I'd be gutted if I received that. It's a strange looking shoe. I never thought I'd say this but in your case I think you'd benefit from appointing a proxy buyer to handle Vass for you.

 

The only advice I'd offer is that with Vass and Reszo you ve got to keep it simple...don't get into long and detailed descriptions...it confuses them. Lay out your requirements in bullet points, not longhand writing. Don't take this the wrong way but half the time on here, even I can't figure out what you're saying so I can't actually blame Vass. (Someone once told me this: only write one thought per sentence if you want to be perfectly understood.)

 

I just created the following headings and filled them in with 2-3 words for them to follow.

 

Style:

Size:

Last:

Leather:

Colour:

Etc.
