    My first VASS. I like the shape and quality much, the only problem is sizing did not work at all to me.
    I ordered UK5.5 after discussing with my retailer in Europe. I am US 6D and 5.5E UK (EG,GG)...
    This shoes seems to me 1 full size bigger.

    What is the mix of leathers on these? Very nice. Thanks for the photos.

    I think I am going to try the 3636 for my next order and I foresee something mixing pebble and smooth grain together along these lines.

    I, too, am a reliable US9D, UK8.5 in EG, AS, C&J et al.
    Have a 3 eyelet derby in 42 on F Last that fits just short of snug....very happy with it. Also have a 42 in a P2 Last loafer, but in shell...this one feels a tad looser but very comfortable.

    I wonder if a 42 on a closed shoe like an oxford will work or does it need a half size more. I guess I will find out soon enough.

    Are derbies meant to tighten more for low insteps or to accommodate high insteps? Which Vass last is better for low insteps?

    How does the AE #5 last (Jefferson) compare to Vass U/F for instep height? I wear a US8.5D in the #5 and the laces are just short of tightened.

    Honestly i have no idea. You should ask Razor Kuti the main man at Vass, via email or better still call him Mon-Thur. He's very knowledgeable, humble and nice to customers.

    When does Vass introduce new RTW shoes to their website? Right now, it's not looking too good...

    I don't think they bother. Send Reszo and email with a picture of what you want and see what they say.

    Is it just me, or is Vass just copying designs from other shoemakers? [​IMG]
