1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I want a pair too, I am just unsure about fit of U Last.

    Anyone with dark brown suede, how does color compare to polo, mocha or mole suede?

    Mid brown looks very light to me.
    Dark brown looks fantastic.

    I agree that 112 is nice. So is 120.

    But I really think Vass needs a better photographer. Period.

    Does the instep vary across models, even if they are on the same F last?

    Or is it just weird photography on Vass part? [​IMG]

    The insteap doesn´t vary between models on the same last when they are new, so this must be because of the photos.

    If you have the same last you should have the same fit but the fit also depends on what model and leather you are using. A full brouge wil fit tighter than a cap toe because the brouge will stretch less. If you take the same model in suede this will stretch even more and give a different fit.

    I had the same experience with my trees. Have EU40 on the F and the 3 piece trees did fit loosely.

    Sorry to hear that the sizing did not work for you.
