    4 sizes too big - how can that possibly happen at Vass?

    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!

    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
    being tweaked

    This depends on what C&J & G&G last you have?

    A miss by 4 sizes can only be explained by a complete communication fail on one side or the other.
