Fantastic, Frank!
I have my Frakno size dialed in now so I can go for this last in confidence

Waiting for me when I get home. Edmorel provided the picture (Buday whisky cordovan). After buying the Buday boots I decided a pair of Buday shoes was in order. Boots are fantastic and I am sure the shoes will be as nice as advertised. Also, edmorel is top notch to deal with. Purchased Monday night and he had them in the mail Tuesday morning. Really appreciate his expert advice whether I am buying shoes or pants. Thanks again Ed! Always a pleasure!!

How are Buday's sizings compared to Carmina (rain, simpson) and Loake (capital, swing, 026)?

They are whiskey shell cordovan, BP39 last.
Double decoration goiser, Double sole.
I got them from @edmorel here on the forum. Buday are incredibly well made awesome shoes, IMHO they blow Vass right out of the water.
I have worn them 4 times and they still don't show any creases or rolls. Take note Alden. The first time I wore my Aldens I put them on in my upstairs bedroom, by the time I got to the kitchen both shoes had permanent creases.

Can you expand on this? Curious to know your comparison between the two, given the relatively similar pricing, especially considering Buday (at least with Ed) comes in lower.

Buday shoes feel more substantial, thicker leather, better soles, metal toe taps are standard. When I hold a Buday in one hand and a Vass in the other, the Buday feels heavier with much better construction. Frankly some of my Vass shoes are just okay quality while all my Buday's are first class.
I guess the big difference is the last shapes. Vass offer sleeker Italian style shapes while Buday is more 'stout" Budapester style although they do offer a sleeker last. (frakno)
Here is a sample of the sleek last

I don't know how else to put it but Buday is a much higher quality shoe for the same price range.

Completely agree with this. Dinkelacker triple soles are king of the budapesters though.
