4 sizes too big - how can that possibly happen at Vass?
What size are they? PM me I'll take em off your hands if they are somehow my size.
We can discuss price.
My same thought? I don't understand.
How are the sizes at vass the same as C&J?
For all my Crocketts I am a 9.5E - so I go up half a size on my Vass to a Eu 44.
I know some guys can stay on a Eu 43.5 - but my width & in-step slightly above
average, so there real pain wearing a size 43.5.
I have one pair in a Oxford close lace budapest in U last size EU 43.5 -
I can do maximum 5 hours wear before the in-step gets sore and the ball
gets red due to the friction.
But I can't believe you or Vass went off by 4 full size....Did you tell them your Crockett
or other Enlgish sizes to assist with measurements?
If it was Vass at fault they should have offered an exchange
^^ given both C&J and Vass use regular size conversion, 44 is your correct size.
Its a little weird....I wear 9US, 8.5UK and EU42...pretty consistently. I can understand a variance of .5 in sizes but 4 sizes is...wow!
I'm a 7F in C&J. 7.5UK in G&G
What would my size be in vass? 41EU=
Presuming Hampton an average size UK 9 - and Vass sent him a size UK 13.
That's excessive - did Vass charge you for the excess leather?
I understand their standard sizes are 6 to 12, anything over is
subject to 30-40% sur-charge for extra leather and labour for last
This depends on what C&J & G&G last you have?
^^ and what Vass last you are interested in.
A miss by 4 sizes can only be explained by a complete communication fail on one side or the other.
Let's see now for an example here.
C&J Hallam 7F UK and G&G last GG06 in 7.5E UK.
I'm looking for something in this thread:
What would fit me for all you vass experts. Note: this is my first vass pair to buy also.
I have both pairs that you have.You will be a 41 on the F-last and 41.5 in the U-last
Really? Ihave F and U-last shoes in the same size and both fit fine.
