    Received my austerity brogue boots yesterday. The delivery was delayed for 4 weeks due to them being out of saddle cordovan, and then there were some minor delays on top of that. Hopefully the sun will be out tomorrow so that I can take some pictures.

    Definitely. Vass seems bigger than standard for the smaller sizes.

    Raining cats and dogs over here today I'm afraid, so the pictures will, unfortunately, have to wait for now. :(

    Anyone with a U last in 40? Can you measure the outsole L and W? Trying to narrow down my size. Thanks!
