    For my in-store order which one of the orders was a U lasted shoe, I took the same size as I wear for Carmina Rain, Meermin Hiro, and G&G MH71 F-width.

    This suit is so awesome that even Vass shoes look cheap. Any idea who's the maker or it's bespoke?

    I didn't try on K last, my apologies.
    U Last and F Last fit like my other 9.5UK/43.5 shoes I own.
    P/P2 Last I needed to go down half size.

    Sorry sir, I was visiting the store to determine my sizing on various lasts before ordering. The two shoes I ordered are on U last and F last respectively. Should be here in 4-6 weeks.

    So my first pair of vass has arrived, the original plan is antique cognac shell OE1 + medallion with 270 flat welt and light brown sole edges. But instead of the flat welt, they made it with 270 goyser welt. I was a bit upset at first as it's not common to match a oxford style shoes with such a country style welt. But I must admit it looks quite good and I decided to keep it. What do you guys think?

    Well that shell looks just about perfect. Will darken to a perfect golden brown tan. I think they look solid. Which last?

    Thanks Namor! Yes, that shell looks really gorgeous, its a bit lighter than my expectation but I am really happy with it.

    Those are on the F last.

    ^ The shade of shell alone is very nice and a keeper. I usually don't go for shell oxfords, but with the lighter shade and goyser, they'd be great for slightly more casual wear.
