    Anyone have a picture of the "berkeley" oxford on the P2 last? I'm trying to gauge which vass last (F or P2) is closer to this:

    Funny you should ask as I love that pair of Manton's as well. I was considering the same thing, but at the end of the day Oxfords are tough on my left foot's higher instep. I went with the pair below and they are on the F last and work very well. Unless the P2 fits you better, I'd aim for the F as it's a bit more classic like these. I also went with a single sole which worked very well as opposed to my go-to double tapering to single.

    Both F and P2 fit great, I also found these, although they are clearly more F than P2:

    None that I know of. You could try calling Vass direct.

    Styleforum member "Kolecho" is a very good seller. Does a few orders a year if you wanted to place one with him. He's very helpful.

    There's also member "Trombone":

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/297851/...rand-new-with-lasted-shoe-trees-and-shoe-bags

    I've purchased shoes from him before (not via this forum) and he's very reasonable. I believe he can get hold of other models / sizes. Drop him a message.

    Hope that helps.

    fwiw, going direct one can benefit from the low HUF.

    For sure. Going direct is the way to go if possible. I've not tried for a year or so. Was quite difficult when I tried.

    Also Budapest is a great city. Perfect for a weekend break - a great excuse to order a couple of pairs.

    Bring back the Schilling too!! Everything is weak versus Dollars these days (except Swiss) - You are seriously right about the HUF man... It can make a real impact on your purchases in Budapest
