    I would appreciate some sizing advice for Vass. I am a 12D in Alden Aberdeen, Grant, and Plaza, 11.5D in Alden Barrie, and UK11 in Carmina Oscar. I am also a US 12D in the RL Lindrick (C&J 325 last). I am looking at the Osloer model which is on the New Peter last. I am thinking EU 46 but would love input.

    Thanks

    46 sounds like it could work for you. I wear 11.5 Alden Aberdeen, 11D Barrie, and a 10.5UK wide or 11UK regular in Carmina Forest. A New Peter 45 worked out for me as my first try at Vass sizing.

    Sure - if the Ebay MTO price is £595 then our exc VAT price would be £495 + Shipping.

    Our email address: [email protected] if you require further clarification

    Thank you
    Sammy.

    I think the 46 would be too large. I wear a US11.5 in most shoes and a 11 in the Lindrick.. In Vass I take a 44.5 The 45 is too big and it fits like a US12.

    My New Peter 45 fits me like I'd expect a US 11.5 to. I have a slightly wide foot and long arch, so it works for me.

    The standard YMMV caveat applies in any discussion of sizing, of course.

    I will say that I've found Mr. Kuti's advice has been useful for me so far.

    Many great shoes ascot, really nice, even the purple. I have to say however, that the croc/ostrich/calf monks are the second ugliest shoes I have ever seen (Bontoni triple strap monks are the undisputed champion of the world). I don't understand how Vass agreed to do that, they look badly put together.

    Love the brown/cognac wing tips on the piano and all the suede are lovely

    43.5 F last, wide (G fitting). Or try F fitting first since you fit in narrow lasts still okay.

    Some gorgeous stuff--- Did I hear correctly that there is a wide-fitting F last? Comparing that to a P2 would be most interesting.
