    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    What styles do you think we're missing when we do MTO events? The only way those work for Inis Meain without disrupting their production dramatically, is to limit ourselves to a few styles at a time (and offer a wide variety of yarns). They are not set up to make 12 different styles in one or two unit volumes for multiple days. Doing so increases the risk of QC issues and sizing variance.

    We offered that multiple times (maybe 2 or 3 times). We can offer again

    I would be interested in a VASS MTO, if H width was an option. Not sure what the current MTO program looks like now.

    Not sure what H means for you but Vass MTO offers 5 width: extra-narrow, narrow, regular, wide and extra-wide. We've had many MTO orders for wide and extra-wide fittings. What customers noticed is that the increments between widths are not as big as some other shoe brands

    I remember year's ago that their regular width was notated by "F", wide being "G", and extra-wide being "H". That is what I was referencing.

    My only experience with VASS back in the day did not end well. I learned that my wide duck-like feet do not fit in their U last. :embar:
    I would like to try them again, but i'm think F last will be a safer try, maybe the new S last. Their S last looks like a more spacious U last, but I could be wrong.

    All my Extra-wide MTOs are labeled H width on the box. Greg is right, there is not as much difference in the widths as with other shoe brands. While a P2 normal would be roughly as wide as an Alden Barrie D width, the P2 in H extra wide is only about as wide as an Alden single E "wide." If you are wider than that, Vass may be a difficult fit altogether.

    I might need to heed this advice, and accept VASS is just not made for me. Thanks for the advice :fistbump:

    Please don't take my experience as gospel, as we all have differently shaped feet.

    Greg would know best!

    To be fair.. Vass has some VERY generous lasts. Obviously there are some slim lasts that might not be for everyone, but thats a given with any maker

    No, no. I plan on getting fitter for a pair in P2 in September, hadn't even thought of width issues. I wear Barrie E, so I think a wider version would be appropriate. In the end, fit will decide, of course.

    I would like to see the pub jacket again is all. Yes I would like to avoid any QC issues, I already experienced varying fits of same size on the aforementioned knit.

    Sounds good we'll have pub jackets in the next MTO.

    For Vass, better start with a last that is not already inordinately narrow in toe box (like U). Even wider fitting U will be a problem.

    Starting with P2 is the right way to go IMO for someone with really wide feet.

    Thanks for the advice, I've been eying a pair of split toes/norwegers grain for far to long. Going to do it at the next trunk around here.
