    One more thing - while looking through the photos of various Vass calf colours in this thread I found it difficult to compare them due to obvious differences in lighting, flash, etc So with a bit of spare time on my hands, I came up with this: [​IMG] Maybe this may help someone else - all photos are from the online Vass catalogue. While I cannot vouch for the objective colour accuracy of the photo as I have no information about what sort of photography setup Vass used, at the very least one would be able to compare the colours to each other given the lighting/setup should have been identical for each shoe.

    Agreed. 6125 Cognac has a little more red in it and Cognac is more orange,

    haha, yes of course I was joking -- just having a little fun since the image was quoted so many times in a row. Now for a real question. Any sizing comparisons between F last and C&J 341? In particular, I'm wondering about width and how elongated the F last is in comparison to the C&J 341. Thanks.
