    Random request: for those who own both the U and S, in a standard width (F), and same size, can you tell me how much longer the S is compared to U? Thanks!

    Good day guys!

    After looking at all your Vass pictures, i'm hooked and ready to make my first Vass purchase! I saw a gorgeous gorgeous pair of OE2 Oxford in dark brown museum calf with a medallion on the cap toe, and i've decided to get just that pair! I have attached a picture as well!

    However, i need some help with regards to nailing down my size. I appreciate all responses :)

    My measurements are as follows,

    Length: 28.2cm
    Width: 10.8cm

    I wear a UK 10 for Loake's Capitol last (round-toe) and Church's F width (Church's most standard width) for comparison's sake.

    What do you guys think? Have a great day ahead!

    Oh, i'm sorry, i left out one important detail, i'm looking at purchasing this pair in the F last (most elegant and well balanced last in my opinion).

    Cheers!

    Treeself I have those shoes. I love them. I wear a US10D. I bought those in a 43 from NMWA.

    I also was going to say I attempted to spit shine the toe and it was actually much easier than any of my other shoes. Looks absolutely fantastic. I'll post pictures soon.

    Nope, went directly through Vass and Mr Kuti was great to deal with. I would highly recommend it if you have the option, but I have heard great things about Ascot as well.

    I just received a pair I ordered 6 months ago. Thanks to arahat for enabling those of us in the US to order Vass shoes. These were the shoes I saw that turned me on to Vass in the first place.

    Antique cognac shell cordovan, U last, 40.5, budapester, flush metal toe taps, HAF sole
