    Only if Vass sell a lot to Sweden, if I have understood the rules correctly.

    Mail order and distance purchasing

    Goods

    The rules applicable to mail order and distance purchasing are identical whether goods are ordered by telephone, from a catalogue or via the internet.
    The general rule for supplies of goods to private individuals in the single market is the "origin" principle. This means that private individuals pay VAT in the Member State of purchase, and do not have additional VAT to pay on return to their own Member State.
    However, for "distance selling" (where the supplier and the customer are located in different Member States, and the goods are dispatched to the customer), there are a number of different possibilities, all related to the level of trade of the supplier, which determines whether the "origin" or "destination" principles apply.
    The general rule is that it is the VAT rate of the supplier which applies ("origin" principle). However, if the level of sales in any one Member State exceed a certain threshold (either €35.000 or €100.000 depending on the Member State)or if the supplier opts, then he must register for VAT and charge VAT at the rate applicable in that Member State ("destination" principle).
    This means that distance sellers must charge the VAT rate applicable in the Member State of the customer where the supplies to all customers in that Member State exceed the relevant threshold.
    Goods supplied from outside the European Union are subject to VAT on importation.

    I think that is right; I recently did and still have to receive them. F: what's the advantage of them anyways? More pleasing to the eye or ease of use?

    I proxied a pair of shoes for styleforum member sm31, he wear a US11.5, which would be a UK11. I advised him a 45 on the R last and they fit perfect he told me. Since one should take the same size for R and F (even though they are two slightly different lasts), I would also advise a 45 for a UK11.

    No indeed, they do not. I posted that post just before sm31 sent me another PM. The size is right, but the problem is with the last. The last is not suited for his foot because sm31 has feet with a straight inner edge.

    I thought the discussion was about which size would fit a UK11.

    I would go with F over U for all designs. I dislike this design mainly because I'm more for conservative, classic, and simplistic, however everyone has their own sense of style, and I say choose the pair you feel most comfortable wearing

    Slick man, thanks for the advise, appreciate it.

    The F last fits me perfectly, so much so that I'm thinking whether it's worth the risk of going for the U Last.

    FWIW, I only got charged USD25 for duties with some help from Vass :D

    That sounds better, I doubt that Vass export shoes for that amount to Sweden, so should be safe.

    Another question to those of you who have ordered directly from Vass. Do they usually send out a dispatch e-mail with tracking number etc when they ship the shoes? My pair should have been finished this Monday, but I haven't heard anything from them yet so just wondered if the package might already be on it's way or if they've been a bit delayed for some reason.

    Yes, they do. Rezso will send an email with the tracking number. I believe they are on holiday this week. He responded to my email on Monday but I havent heard back from him since.

    Okay thanks, that's probably why I haven't heard anything from them yet then.

    Weymouth, F-last in oxblood. Rezso of Vass is a pleasure to deal with

    Beautiful Shoes. I am very jealous. I am too afraid to take the plunge and buy a pair of vass without first trying them on in person. Enjoy them!

    I took a chance and thankfully they turned out great. I wear a size UK8 for my C&J and they were slightly loose. So for Vass, I sized down to 41.5 and they were a perfect fit.

    ljrcustom: Style wise or size wise? I tried a lot of shoes in the shop and all fit well in 42 as well as 42,5 for me, which is my normal size range (41,5 is far too small and 43 is far too big). But I don't have difficult feet.
