    I have to squeeze inside as length is very tight, thus can't lace it well. There's no 40.5 & 41 to try on.

    Toe and waist is ok.

    Confused... Do you mean width is tight? If length was tight your toes would not be comfortable and I wouldn't buy them. They lace up perfect in the pictures. If they arn't comfortable and you haven't bought them, don't buy them.

    Its kind of impossible to tell if a shoe fits from a picture unfortunately.

    Length and width is both tight, i have to sqeeze into it.

    Sadly there's no right size to try on and compare, only 40 & 42

    Don't buy them or sell them if you already bought them.

    Wow @TtownMD . Kind of perfectm the PTB (Alden Dover) style makes it more versatile than a wholecut. Great choice especially in blue croc.

    What makeup did you chose? I really wish I could have black uppers and red suede shaft, but will settle for the bordeaux/red combination.

    Those are absolutely stunning!
    I have a hard time identifying the last, which is it? And is there a custom patina also?

    I'm looking at a pair of Vass and i need sizing advice for F last, and i don't have a local retailer.

    St Crispins:
    Classic Last 7.5UK
    Very good fit. I wanna replicate this if possible

    EG:
    82 Last 8
    A little roomy in the toe, i chose this when i was wearing thick socks.

    Carmina:
    Simpson 8
    Fits well, but i suspect that's with a tighter toe box.

    I'm thinking i should probably get a 7.5UK on the F, for a chukka.

    Would i be correct?

    As for leather, anyone has brown museum calf to show me?

    We are the same size, i would recommend a 41 on the F last. If you plan on boots a 41.5 with thick socks may work too.
