    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.

    It looks nice but not sure about museum calf and the mottled effect for a budapester.

    I took a comparison shot of the P2 - Peter and F. All in Antique cognac, size is 42 or 42.5.

    Please know that the shot is unedited, so the balance and exposure is off! Also, the shoes came straight out of the box. It only shows the difference in last shape.

    It shows the F on the right, which is the sleekest of the round tip Vass lasts. In the middle is the Peter last, which is a symmetric last, but still quite sleek. The last on the left is the P2, which is a more casual last, as it has a more rounded toe and it makes a kind of curve at the little toe (first outwards then inwards). Also the toe is more bulbous than the Peter and F.

    This is great. Thank you, Notch! Would one wear the same size in all the lasts? I am a 43.5 on the F and P2, but have no fitting experience with the Peter.

    Really helpful photo. I have been debating the p2 and the Peter for a while now. I guess I will decide when I see them live.

    @slewfoot: It varies for each customer's foot of course, but in general one would wear the same size in the F, Peter and P2.

    Interesting. I take a full size larger from P2 to F. But I have elongated big toes...

    Lots of win here. They look like the brown museum galosh oxfords from NMWA but I can't quite tell. Care to share some details?

    Gents--first-time poster on this forum. I'll be in Budapest this summer for four days and would love the collective guidance of the group on the following: If there's only one pair of shoes/boots to get while there, which is it? It could be from Vass or one of the other top-notch makers in the city. I'm open to any kind of style or type. Just looking to score something awesome that wouldn't be as easy to get once back in the States.

    Go for a classic chunky Budapester (wingtip derby) with double sole and full goyser! The quintessential Austro-Hungarian shoe...

    Yes, and that last is more traditional. Although the same model in the Peter 2 last would still be Hungarian in style, just more modern. [​IMG]

    Excellent, thanks! I like this look. And I also am kind of digging this from Buday (hope it's not a bad thing to post a competing maker's stuff here). Seems to be in the line of what you're recommending.

    I'm a big big fan of Vass but that particular last they no longer produce with shell so you need to go for one of the other Hungarian makers.
