    Interesting. Thought the general consensus is to size up half from F last to U last.

    Is it difficult to get a MTO done directly from Vass, and what's the price range for their shoes and boots?

    Thanks a lot. You deleted my thought for going for 40 as I wear UK 7 in both C&J and Merrmin. So, I should at least for for 40.5.

    Yes. I am also thinking whether I should go up in size or width. Now I will try the former one to achieve a sleeker shape.

    I do not have any Us but tried it at the store and if I were to buy, I would buy the same size as I do for the F.

    Are those gold museums from Vass?? They are STUNNIng! What model is that if you don't mind me asking?

    I wear the same size in U and F. Never even heard the suggestion of altering size as between these lasts until now.

    Rezsö suggested that I should go 0.5 size up in U vs F at first, but later came back and said that Mr Vass suggested to start by trying the same size as in F last. Since the 41F I had in F last was tight I sent the measurement of my metatarsal width on my dominant foot and he changed his recommendation to 41G, which in the fit me perfect.

    It's quite easy if you know your size in the the VASS last you are interested in. You email Reszo. Give him the details of your order (last, size, design). He sends you a quote. You wire money to him. Wait around 8 to 12 weeks. Receive your shoes. Post in this thread.

    With MTO, you are better off emailing Reszo as price is very material dependent (calf, shell, calf museum).

    And if you aren't sure about size, Rezsö is happy to assist in advising you.
    I've done two MTO's this year and production time has been around six weeks in both cases.

    Has anyone heard from Reszo? Is there a specific email address besides the general VASS email? No response yet.

    I just heard from him today. He's having a problem with his laptop and told me that he wouldn't be able to respond to emails regularly before Wednesday of next week.
