    I've seen the R last mentioned a couple of times recently. I am not familiar with this one. How does it compare to the P2, U and F? From the one pic it seems similar to the U (square toe) but not quite as narrow toward the toe.

    Definitely not the R-last. To me, it looks like K-last. Oxblood seems correct though.


    R-last is a bit rounder and more traditionally British (think C&J 236-last) and a bit more rounded than F. I'd say somewhere between F and P2 in look. Haven't tried them though, so can't say much about the fit.

    That sounds like a very good selection. Classic even. I'll look forward to seeing them here when you receive them. :)

    Is there a list of other colors that vass has? Because I don't recall seeing museum calf.

    Rumors say that the tannery is insolvent and may go inte bankruptcy. Let's hope they manage to get it up and running again.

    That's what I've heard as well. here is a picture Rezso sent me (I think the darker one is called +8 and lighter one -8)
    All of ours were done with the darker museum calf.

    I've had the JL museum calf loafer (which I've sold few weeks back) and couldnt tell the difference. They are quite beautiful.

    Both look nice...Id love to see any make-ups on the lighter one. So far only the dark one seems to be popular.

    Whoa: I'm a 7UK in the Rain last, but in 348 I go down to 6.5UK, not up. I am puzzled...

    It would help me sir if I knew what your foot measured on the brannock device in US sizing.
