    Need advice on sizing (I cannot currently go to Budapest to try on Vass shoes).

    I have several pairs Crockett and Jones on the 337 last that is UK10.5. In the U-last is this a EU 44.5 or do I go EU 45? I am okay with a little large versus being too small.

    Any information would be great.

    Maybe I'm color insensitive, but although the red cognac is best for night clubs and days when u want people to say 'look at his shoes!!' , the dark cognac pictured is more a burgundy and will go anywhere.


    AND the lit-mus test- I wear them every week, and no-one has ever commented on the color

    cheers, will do tonight.

    I had forgotten to ask kolecho to request natural goyser welt. No biggie. Although i'm almost tempted to chuck in some white lacing to see if the contrast works.

    360 Goyser, for those who can't stand half-assedness of 270...

    Should wear the same size. Budapest last has more toe space, but it is the same width as F last. Length is a little shorter than F but it does not affect fit.

    i can stand both, still prefer 270 because it's our heritage and not i-gentry.
