    Anyone had any luck getting a reply to emails at all recently? Trying to finalize an order after initial discussions with Mr Kuti but no reply at all over the past month...

    Thanks!

    Yes, I used sales at vass-shoes dot com in August, received prompt replies, and was able to place an order.

    I would recommend going with 43.5 in E width. It is more of a slightly less voluminous fitting that a true narrow width. YMMV.

    Does anyone own any dress shoes or oxford/balmoral boots on the P2 last? I'm interested in a back boot, and P2 fits me the best, but I'm thinking the profile might be too chunky for a dress boot, particularly since I need to take "H" width.

    Opinions?

    They look quite classic! Of course, much sleeker than my extra wide budapesters. Thanks for the pic. I think I'm leaning this way.

    Thanks to those who provided sizing advice, anyone have any strong opinions re: sole choices? Some internet sleuthing discovers that several years ago there were some strong feelings that the double tapering to single sole is "unbalanced"; I couldn't tell if people objected aesthetically or found the sole to be actually physically unbalanced. I'm looking at the Old English II and Double Monk models on F last, I think the tapering sole could look really sharp on both, perhaps more so on the monk strap.

    Also, I'm looking at getting the OEII in gold museum and the double monk in red cognac, but it seems like both have a pretty significant variation. Is this just based on different batches of leather, or can one request a specific shade?

    I've got two boots with the HAF (double to single) sole. It wears just fine! However, the way Vass does it, it mostly looks like a single sole to me.
