    On the subjective piece I find the C&J lasts a little better fit for my feet - 348 and 363. In AS I haven't tried the 724, however I have the 48 in an Ex makeup of a HG style, 99, and 87.

    On the objective, I agree that the leather quality in the AS Ex is equal to C&J handgrade. On my special make up of the AS HG style, the burnishing is nicer than on C&J HG. My AS Ex also have nicer soles- semi-fiddleback than on the C&J HG. I also like the slightly higher heel stack on the AS Ex.

    I also prefer the single nail in each corner on the AS toplift as opposed to the rows of nails on the C&J, which I find to be slip prone.

    Ha thanks, I'm already married and so I'm just a mere groomsmen. The groom requested us all to wear our own black suits and of the brown/tan/burgundy dress shoes I own, I did not have a decent pair of black shoes.

    Fantastic. I'm considering ordering Vass shoes through the group buy MTO, these pictures definitely help.

    One question that will help me understand Vass sizing better. I see that you are 40 on the U Last. What is your size on G&G or EG lasts? Thanks...

    So, UK 6.5E = Euro 40
    This means UK 6E = Euro 39 or 39.5? Or the difference is so small it doesn't matter? Thanks...
