good looking family
I went 43.5 for a10.5 D fitting. We'll see.
One pair I sent to a Hungarian friend arrived. Another pair arrived back Down Under 6 months later!
Thanks. I have some shoes on the New Peter coming and was advised 45 for an 11D fitting. My hope is that they'll be manageably too big at worst. Good luck with yours.
Just placed an order for some Theresianer high boots in antique cognac scotchgrain. Looking forward to them. I am a TTS 8.5 D and went with a 41.5. We'll see.
i thought 45 in new peter was equivalent to us12..
Noted that when reading through the thread and viewing some of your contributions. Depending on how the overall volume works out, I may be ok. I do wear 11.5 in some shoes when I need to. We'll see. The first try on these things is always a little dicey. I'd promise to mail them directly to you, Namor, and just invoice you for them if they are in fact too big for me, but they aren't shell.
I'm a us10 and went with a 43 on the P2 for an almost perfect fitt, so my guess is 45 will be a bit big for you. You should be a 44-44.5
On the P2, 11D is almost certainly 44. Im a 9D and ordered a loafer in 42 on that last. Its very comfortable with a little more room than snug...and I prefer it that way.
Anyone wear the same size F and U Last?
I can size down half in C&J on 348/337 last compared to other C&J. I wear a 44 in F and am looking at a pair of U Last in 44.
I wear 45 in P2 (snug on the instep but otherwise pretty slick) and I have wide feet, probably an 11.5 wide in most US sizes. 12W on Sperry Top-Siders, and 11EEE on the Alden Barrie last, IIRC.
So yours might be a little too large.
Wish everyone had been around to offer advice a month ago )), although Rezső's advice was that 44.5 in the P2 is a 10.5 regular fitting and he and I decided on 45 since my foot is a little wide. I am assuming these shoes (oiled green boxcalf Alt Wien on a double sole, by the way) will be on the large side at this point. The question remains by how much, and I'll find out when I lace them up. I'm not really worried about it. Looking forward to judging the fit and pretty excited to see a pair of Vass in real life, in fact.
If the fit doesn't allow for some minor adjustments to make them wearable, I will look to sell rather than return them, despite the fact that it seems Vass will allow a return for sizing. I can't imagine the return shipping costs and trouble (considering what I've read here) will be worth it. Particularly after paying inbound shipping, wire transfer costs, and import duty as well. Some significant transaction costs for Vass...
I also sent back a pair to Reszo using regular post services, and they weren't delivered and sent back to me...
I had to use fed-ex to see them delivered.
Beside that, anybody to help me with this http://www.styleforum.net/t/130044/the-ultimate-vass-porn-thread/5340#post_6047468 ?
That does not make sense from what I've read. One of us is going to be sad.
You sure he didn't mean 10.5 UK? This seems on point, as that'd be a 11.5 US in Vass speak.
