    I feel I get good service from them and also feels easier than ordering directly from vass and the total sum isn't that steep anyways

    Those are fucking awesome. Would you you wear them about once a month? Also, on my monitor it looks like the shoe has darkened considerably, to the point I thought it was dark brown shell at first glance. What kind of cream/polish have you been using and how often?

    I have a question conerning the size of Vass-shoes and thought I'll ask you Vass-owners. I am a UK8E in Gaziano & Girling (TG73, MH71, GG06) and UK7,5E in Crocket & Jones (348). What do you think my size for a pair of Vass U-last is? Is it more snug than G&G? Is it similar to it?

    Thanks in advance.

    I see. Following your ratio between G&G and Vass U-last my UK8 in G&G should be comparable to 42 in Vass U-last. Thanks!

    Anyone else having some experience in the area?
