Thanks for the advice guys, this was very helpful.
I would go with the 43.5. In my experience, my Vass shoes have all become less tight over time. This is just personal, anecdotal experience. My suede have not expanded, but the leather ones have, slightly. If they feel a bit tight, try wearing some thinner socks as well. That always makes a world of difference for me.

And for the final question... what color for the Casentino mwink[1].gif

I agree with this advice. I purchased a Budapester that pinched my feet for a while. They were definitely snug.The seller, who brought Vass to the States several years ago, told me not to worry, that they will be comfortable in time. He was right. Of course, that is just my experience. But I'd say if the shoes are not impossibly tight, they should work for you eventually.

most shoes have some stretch. do not buy them painfully tight, or loose.

How about if I just compare on the casual wear side, which would be warmer? Also just by measurement Valstar looks quite short (like your typical varsity jacket length). I just want the heavy duty stuff, riding bicycle/motorcycle is not really a concern

ESEMPLARE

VALSTAR

PEDALED

The Valstar is the warmest in absolute but it's shorter. Then Esemplare, then Pedaled.

If you want something on the longer side / covering down to mid-thigh, Esemplare it is. Otherwise, the Valstar.

I have a pair of norwegers in the Peter last and they've been slightly uncomfortabe for several years now, I finally gave up on them and will sell them soon. I've found that if shoes are snug in width at the ball of my foot or too low in the instep, they never get better. It's a fine line though. I have some other shoes that have gone from tight to perfect with some break in time.

Any word on coming / future products? I really need a solid bitter-chocolate tie, prob grenadine to go with crazy pattern shirts, and if a smooth finish navy solid suit from Formosa is possible, i'd hold off on both till avail from NMWA if u think either is a possibility?

What's the difference between chocolate and bitter chocolate?
post #2079 of 10794
Taste?

I think a bitter is more muted in color maybe?

I was wondering how we have gotten so specialized with palettes. But then again I was always a 16-crayola box kid, not a 64. Even though the 64-color box came with a cool crayon sharpener

More or less - I think about it in the about the "warmth" of the color.  They are both rich colors, but regular chocolate is a warm color, with a lot more red in the dye, while (typically) the color people associate with "bitter chocolate" has much less - it's somewhere between chestnut and chocolate, from what I've from Pantone color codes.  

 

The are all nice - to most people, if you put the three colors side my side - they usually see the difference, but they see little difference in an outfit.  ymmv.  Of course, I'm also a guy who has several dozen brown belts of various shades, and the same in various shades of brown and grey sneakers.  For me, there are 2 things you should look at to figure out whether two pieces will go together colorwise - the first is, are the colors similarly saturated, and the second, whether the colors are both warm, or both cold.  And every color spans the spectrum between warm and cool.
