1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    I think what i'll do is ask my friend to measure the popular sizes (40-44) and last (F,U,K,P2) for a start.At the very least, we have an early indication to what the measurements are.

    Hopefully Vass would allow their last to be measured.I just think his would really help people in their sizing on top of comparing it with other lasts from other brands.

    Are you going to ask your friend to do half sizes as well? 40,40.5, etc. I hope that Vass will be open to the idea.

    I will.I myself am a 41.5 on the F-last.I think I will ask him o do the F lasts first and slowly more to other lasts.Hopefully Vass is receptive to the idea, especially if it helps boost sales for them.

    from what i've read and what people told me via pm it's absolutely the case.

    one source of failure is that people buy with their eyes instead what their feet demand. if you start with a complex last and a complicated mto your chances to fail are bigger than otherwise.

    keep it simple with your first order and go from there. rule of thumb: a wingtip is easier to fit than a cap toe. the guys at vass know their product well and can help you on that.

    Absolutely true. Had experience with the same last but wingtip fits much better than cap toe due to the toe cap stitching not yielding to my feet.

    Are you able to pay with a credit card or paypal. When I contacted vass via email I was told that they only accept payment via bank transfer. Is this how you are paying or am I being given the run around? Thanks.

    +1. Only by bank transfer which is quite troublesome.

    Is it really that troublesome though? It takes a few clicks and entering 4 or 5 fields of info on the payee on a bank's website to send a wire, not much longer than on paypal. And once the payee is set up, it just takes a handful of clicks to send another wire later.
