Do you mean Bordeaux Shell or Calf? If it's shell - there was a gentleman who recently posted several pics of a Bordeaux Shell boot

2 pages back.

 

Vass import their Shell from Horween Chicago - And they have problems keeping up with demand at times.

 

And agree, Anitque Cognac Shell is very nice.

Sorry, I mean shell.

sdolina, you compare Vass F to P2, right?
Never heard of an A last before.

I can't tell you whether you will find bordeaux calf to be good looking any more than I can tell you whether you will prefer chocolate or strawberry ice cream. You know what you like. Purchase accordingly.

Dunno what sdolina has posted...but one looks like the F and the other a hung-over bruised  

cousin of the F...

Has anyone transferred funds from Bank of America to CIB bank for a direct Vass purchase before?

 

Care to comment on the receiving bank fee?

Transfer from Chase was $45, I don't know if there is a receiving bank fee, but I transferred the amount Vass wanted in USD and let them deal with any additional fees on their end. Sorry if I didn't really answer your question.

Can't comment on this either.

Western Union has an online service that charges about $22 although the exchange rate isn't great. You have to use this service to send Euros to Hungary. Maybe you can use the regular service to send US$. No receiving bank fees that I know of.

Someone else here mentioned CurrencyFair, which seems to have a much lower fee and a better rate of exchange. Not sure if you can use if from the US as I haven't tried. I may try this next time I order from Vass.

Both of the above require some set up to bank funds with the vendor for transfer. May not be worth the savings depending on your point of view.

Do you know the difference between these shoe types and how they fit? 

If you went out and bought a pair of Vass in the U last size 40 - of the following style: 
1) Monkstrap
2) Oxford Close lace budapest
3) Derby open lace budapest 

The fitting will not necessarily be the same.  You will find the Oxford budapest fitting more snug than the other 2. 
The Monkstrap will be more comfortable because it's opening will stretch down to the upper vamp section.

My best advice is go for the 40 - you're better off getting a pair that's comfortable and if it loosen up just fit a gel pad insole. 
Any size smaller you run the risk of doing long term damage to your feet & pocket.

IMHO.   

Thanks. I will probably start with a pair of derby in F or P2 last.

I got Vass OE2.( F last) of  UK5.5 (EUR39.5?).  It turned out to be too big.   I feel it is one full size bigger.  I am inquiring if this pair is really UK5.5 size they usually produce and not a one-off mistake by any chance.

I am very interested in knowing this (if this pair is really UK5.5 size they usually produce and not a one-off mistake by any chance.) as well. Between your sizing info & Louis XIV's, I think I would do 39.5 for a pair of oxford or 39 for a pair of derby in F or P2 last.

All of which underscores why I sincerely hope that they get set up to receive credit cards and / or Paypal.  I would happily cover the 3-4% Paypal fees in order to make payment in a matter of a few mouse clicks and a few seconds of my time, versus standing in line at the bank and waiting for days for confirmation of a wire transfer.  This is really the only deterrent I face in placing a direct order with Vass.
