The P2 (or new peter) is a rounded last with good space for a normal-ish foot (i.e. D width or a little on the wide side). I have some Vass wholecuts on the 3636, I'll try and dig out some pics.
very interested to see these pics, as I'm also a EEE in AE. Would be nice to find a rtw last that fits, I recently ended up ordering an F last in H width so we'll see how that turns out.

I am EEE in the modified last and need wide toebox.

The New Peter and 363 lasts could work?

Is there anywhere in NYC to try on Vass lasts?

We have only gotten one delivery/style so far. Our first big delivery should be in early October. 

 
We currently have this shoe in stock in the Manhattan store. Feel free to swing by and try on a pair!

No, and no. Budapest and Peter are considerably slimmer than the 3636. The widest medium-width fitting lasts are: 3636, P2 and Banana (if they still make it). Many members go up .5 size on the Budapest, and sometimes the Peter.

Vass does make wide widths.

this thread has been too quiet lately...any consensus on a museum calf MTO? my preference would be golden museum calf and either a double monk or a cap toe bal (as posted earlier by RogerP) w/ double leather sole.

I'm still holding out for the cognac shell dub monk

Hey guys!

Our apologies for being AWOL over the last week - we've had our hands full with Fall merchandise rolling in. But we're all set now to get everything sewn away for this first round of group makeups. And there's a lot going on!

1) Our initial Fall 13 delivery will be here and online in the next 2-3 days.

2) We're running an MTO event for Vass shoes this coming weekend. We're going to have samples, leather swatches, and a VASS representative at our Manhattan store all day Friday Oct 11th and Saturday Oct 12th. We'll be ready to take your orders for individual MTO's in person and over the phone. We'll have images of the samples and leathers for anyone ordering over the phone

3) As a special event promotion, we're offering 15% off any products at the store when you purchase a Vass shoe from us between now and October 12th. So, if you buy a stock shoe, a personal MTO, or a group buy style, you'll get 15% off anything else that you order along with it with two exceptions: other Vass Stock Shoes/MTO's and Carmina MTO's (although Carmina stock shoes would qualify).

4) So with that, we better get some group buys going smile.gif. Matt and I will comb through and put the items that you're looking for online in the next 2 days, and we'll be able to submit them as a block with all of the individual orders that we take in store. It's going to be great!

Yeah I'm hoping they announce the offerings soon. I'd like to know before Friday so I can plan for a purchase.
