F last is the best. What a beauty.

In the two runs I experienced with Vass, the production time was 4 weeks +/- of only a few days.
If I understood correctly from some topics I read at this forum, the leather uppers of quality made shoes have to sit on their lasts for around three weeks before being ready to be finished into a complete shoe, thus I think a MTO shoe can't be made a lot faster than Vass does it.
I am very happy and can't wait for them to arrive at my place.

It's my understanding that they cannot, but perhaps they've had a change of heart. Can't hurt to ask.

Ahh-- the 202 is too svelte and sophisticated?

Let's just say I prefer F.

Look back a few pages. I updated the color chart with help from Mr. Kuti.

I think I have the same ones in the works.

Will perforation affect the durability of shoe uppers? Like in this pair of U last wholecut perforated wingtip. Perhaps the 'pits' expand over time?

Leather should dry faster but no expansion to my knowledge

The only area of the shoe leather that should really "wear" is at the vamp, where the leather flexes. However, in the case of wingtips, the area of the toecap which extends over the vamp (and thus flexes as well) is most susceptible to dryness and cracking over time. If that area has brogue holes, it may well be even more vulnerable.



I know this is a ventilated spectator and not all leather. However, it is the first pic I found and the principal is the same.

I'm a TTS US 9D & a 42 calfskin in F-last is a touch too tight on me, but I also have a high instep.

Is there a lot of dead space in the toe box?

 

How do you judge if you have a high instep? The vamp volume looks huge on both F and U lasts. I've no idea if my instep is enough to fill the space. As far as I know, I have pretty normal feet.
