    are these single soles? the sole is v close-cut, they look great
    I'm not 100% sold on cordo for wholecuts and formal shoes cos of the potential for creasing. I mean, I like the creasing, but there's a time and a place for it, and not

    Totally agree Trini , i'd love a pair of Vass but just cant get a handle on what size i'd be and dont particularly fancy dropping £600 ish on something that may not fit. Is it the case with most here that its trial and error with Vass you just gotta get a pair and go from there??

    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.
