I didn't ask again, he was just quoting the original post....
Two new pairs: Budapest last Budapesters in red scotch grain and burgundy shell cordovan and New Peter London in middle brown suede.
I toyed with my sizing on both, going with a G width in each, with a size 45 in the Budapest last and down to 44.5 in the New Peter. Now to wear them and see how this works out.
^ both of those are pretty awesome.
The tobacco suede derby's are really nice!
Both look fantastic. On the Budapester is it looks like Cognac scotchgrain, but photos can be deceiving..
wear in good health
I like the first pair best.
Nice! I have a nearly-identical pair of mid-brown suede derbies; the only differences are Goyser stitching and a double sole. Love 'em.
I've also found that the Budapest last is more snug than the P2. I got the Budapesters in the same size I usually get in New Peter, but the break-in period was much more difficult on the Budapest last. However, the fit is great now. I wonder whether getting P2-lasted shoes half a size smaller might have been a better idea for me as well, at least with derby-laced models. I recall Marcel Mrsan telling me, "If it's comfortable at first, then it's not a good fit", which has been true in my experience.
The suede London and cognac calf Budapest are my two most-often-worn pairs of Vass lately; they're such versatile and comfortable informal shoes. I suspect that you'll get a lot of use out of yours, too.
nice makeup frank. Looks awesome
I so need a suede pair of Vass.
Thank you all. The suede are perhaps not the most exciting shoes, but it was something I did not have and I was glad to get them from Vass.
It may well be cognac. When Mr. Kuti sent me a photo of the scotchgrain options available, he called this one red, and so that's the term I used when ordering. Of course, I ordered a belt in this color previously and it is more of a light brown, while this time there's more red in it. Perhaps the shoemaker finished this grain to match the burgundy shell better.
Speaking of, Vass burgundy shell has a very nice finish to it. Not really very dark at all, which is something different.
I agree that the Budapest last fits slightly smaller than the P2.
45F P2 fits me, and it seems as if 44.5G should work as well. The 45G Budpapesters are snug now, but feel as if they should work after a break-in period. Whereas the 45F Budapest last loafers I have seem to be too small sadly.
I was aware that the fit would be slightly narrower and shorter when I ordered the loafers, and it turns out to be too narrow even for a loafer fit. I think I will actually try that pair again in a 45G
Anyway, more shoes another day. Now to wear these!
Very interesting to see the extended heel counters on the two-tone Budapesters. I thought Vass abandoned this long counter style a few years ago. Was that a special request?
