You can either trust a random stranger or the vender.
These look very nice. What are the details on last and leather?
He had the advice of the vendor. He asked for further input from random strangers. He received it. What's your problem?
I'm not trying to sell him a pair of shoes or convince him that one size is right. I'm offering an opinion based on my sizing experience with Vass and Carmina. He can take or leave it as he pleases.
Did anyone got Mr. Kuti replay recently? Not sure whether he replies email during vacation. Sent email to him but no reply for almost 2 weeks.
Heard from him today...try sending him another email...he was having issues with his laptop and may have lost some messages
Btw, anyone heard what color of museum calf in addition to the current gold and dark brown will be available in sept?
The problem is that I wanted dainite soles, and Tom only discovered later
Got an email from him this morning
From left to right. F, P2 and P2. First 2 are calf. Loafer is saddle shell.
Thanks for the details. I like the two different examples of toe stitching. I might have to give that P2 loafer style a try.
I wear 8UK, standard width, in Carmina Rain last and 41F and 41G in Vass F and U lasts respectively. Rezsö recommended 42 initialy but had to return since they were too large.
When sizing for Vass I found the following chart to be very helpful.
My bigger foot measures 253mm so right at the transition between EU39.5 and EU40.
I went with EU39.5 in the F last and am very happy with the fit.
P2 last loafers are generous...you may need to size down by a half more than you usually do.
This is good to know. I was wondering about this actually. Thanks.
Rezso confirmed to me that they will not be receiving any more Ilcea leathers. But the good news is that they have found an alternate supplier in France. He said the new supplier is where JLP is currently sourcing some of their leather. I wonder if this is where the "misty calf" comes from or perhaps it is the "ultra calf" (examples of this ultra calf are under the "By Request" section of the website.
The third color is a deep navy blue. It appears that the new supplier has this color as well as I had a boot ordered in it.
