    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.

    beautiful, what a great choice. Congratulations!, like my 5 year old says "the best eva, awesome dude". When I order Vass again (God willing) I have to have those trees.

    The three piece are 25 euros plus...

    I like the F last, but much prefer the traditional Alt Wien and Budapest on 3636 as well as the budapester....
    Vass is a class act on these traditional shoes and somehow I feel they dont do a on par job venturing to the Italian lasts/shoes..

    SStomcat, I agree with you in general, love your choices, especially the alt wien, I love mine, my favorite right now as I said before, my london plain and hopefully soon a theresianer 3636, but if you feel they don't do a on par job on the F I will respectfully disagree with that, I feel its one of the greatest last ever, rounded and sleek but not as pointy ala G&G DG70, looks great, feels great. If an italian designed it (God bless him) of course is not a Vass traditional but I like modern designs too and Vass does it with class.

    I have the Old English II posted by AON and is one of my favorite of all time, if I have to choose, I would throw my C&Js and G&Gs, Alden and Carmina to the garbage and keep that one.

    ad hoc:

    1. it's been a corporation. the u last was initially designed upon request from isetan for the japanese market.

    2. yes, please do a master cleanse and get rid of them :fistbump: you're soul must bee freed.

    Certainly true in the past when relating to U Last.

    I was referring to the earlier post by sstomcat.

    I'm new here & this forums moderation/admin is frustratingly slow. My posts are held for 12 hours or so before being posted.

    I respect your opinion...I myself have a F last and do like it. Its when I start comparing to the 3636 and Budapesters (True Austro-Hungarian lineage) the aesthetics, contours, shape and most importantly the balance and fit is just not there...

    This doesn't mean its a inferior last, but definetely not one of the greatest last ever.. to me.

    Quite candidly I prefer to wear my Alden/peal monk anyday over my F....

    I am curious about new Peter last lately. Although I don't have a soft spot for traditional A-H lasts, I like the anatomic contours, that asymmetrical curve that New-Peter last has. I am not sure which model to get on that last though.

    I think the Peter last looks the best on a split toe Norweger:

    I respect your opinion too, btw i have that peal monk in brown and i really like it, I wear them quite often.

    I also recommend the new peter last, in case you don't own one yet, it looks beautiful in the plain toe derbies and theresianer.



    I agree, if I order the Vass norweger one day it will be on that last. Beautiful shoe.
