That UK 5.5 is equivalent to what Vass sizing?
just an fyi, I contacted rezso about a suede color to closer match oxblood (rather than red or cognac) and he mentioned they have a bordeaux suede right now as well
Good to know. Brodeaux more of a burgundy? Anyone have a photo of oxblood calf in sunlight?
his exact description was it was darker and closer to oxblood than either red or cognac suede.
Awesome thanks. Looks like G&G Vintage Rioja.
I think these are a bit darker.
That actually helps. Does the color work well with your wardrobe?
Sorry I know the questions wasn't towards me but I wear 5.5 UK myself. I have a sem-wide feet and high instep
I take 5.5UK on Carmina Rain/Inca (sometimes 5.5UK or 6UK on their narrower Simpson/Alcudia)
When I first contacted Rezso for sizing info, he recommended me i should go with 39 (39.5 for U last since he said they are narrower)
I've heard Vass makes it a little bit and recommend big so I took a chance and went with 38.5 G width.
They came and fit perfect for me. Hope that helps.
That is eerie. I believe I have the same exact pair coming to me ( though in p2 last). Is that antic cognac cordovan? I was supposed to get a brogued cap toe, but they made a straight instead.
Very much so. Pairs nicely with grey's (probably not charcoal, haven't tried) and blue's. I like them a lot.
Yes, oxblood looks basically
Black when not in the sun.
Does anyone know if 6125 cognac and red cognac are the same? I was looking for a reddish brown close to
Yes it is. You will like it.
No, red cognac is quite red.
6125 is much closer to the picture, but a little redder I would say.
The picture looks to fall right in between 6125 and antique cognac
