    Not 100% sure (was a while ago) but I believe the color was antique cognac

    I bought all of my Vass shoes straight from Vass, via email orders. It's hard to imagine anything simpler and more fail-proof than that, as long as you're very clear about what you're ordering, details, etc...

    Peter is very narrow. I can't wear it.

    New Peter I can squeeze into, although the shoe that I bought ended up being too long to be really comfortable to walk in. (Support was in the wrong place, and instep was low.)

    3636 is sort of like a wide Peter. If you look at the Vass website at their Norwegers and English oxfords on the Peter last, the 3636 looks almost identical. Except that I can wear that model.

    Cheers. That was me.

    Does anyone know where I can find a listing of the suede color Vass stocks? I want to pick up a few double monks.

    Also how does the F last compare to the U in sizing? The U last fit me in length but a shallow toe box caused chafing on the tops of my toes. I'm between a 43.5 and 44 in the Peter.

    Finally, what lasts do you all think would look handsome on a suede monk? I think I saw some K lasts a few pages back that looked interesting.
