1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Pretty much. I have my first pair coming in soon (something similar to the ones above) and they are going to fit by any means necessary.

    Kev not sure if it helps but I'm a UK 8E on the C&J 348, EG 888, and EG 202. I take a 42 in Vass on the U last and it's a perfect fit.

    Trini, was it you that was concerned with the width of the F last earlier in the thread? I'm in a similar situation and I'm curious to hear what you did for sizing and also how they fit. Length doesn't seem that confusing to me (nearly positive I'd be a 43.5), but width is another story. F last looks like it has some room in photos but photos can be deceiving sometimes.

    FWIW they didn't respond to my email....

    But i've taken a chance on the F last anyway. Hopefully it works out.

    from my personal experience, email is not an appropriate tool in hungary, can't speak for vash, though.

    From another angle - I wouldn't have recognised these as Vass at all:

    Agreed. I feel as if there's a lot of variation with the Oxblood color based on photos. I really like the eggplant scheme that runs through these.
