    It is not as elongated as 348. Look a lot better IMO.

    What size are you in Vass F last and in other shoes? The only reason I'm considering a wide in Vass is that I'm a E width/wide in US sizing. However, in UK sizing I'm a regular width as I mentioned earlier.

    Wearing my first pair of Vass for the first time today. I was trying them on yesterday when the wife saw them and exclaimed how beautiful they were. I think I have found the perfect pair of fall shoes.

    Happy Monday all.

    As of about two weeks ago, I didn't even know that this colour existed in the Vass stable. But once I did, it was love at first sight. My thanks to the good peeps at Ascot for the always excellent purchase experience.

    Red Cognac on the U-last:

    Thank you Rodger. That red cognac is something else. Would look great with a navy suit.

    I only tried on the F last and 44 had heel slip and 43.5 was ok but a little tight. So I might be able to do 43 wide as my toes are short. All UK sizes other than Alden:

    Carminas (forest / oscar) usually 10UK or 9.5 wide
    EG 82 / 202 (888 no good) 10F or 10.5E
    Alden bigger lasts and grant 10.5 or 10E
    G&G mh71 10.5E
    C&J 337 10E, 325 9.5E
    Trickers 4444 9.5, 10 otherwise
    JL 10E, but don't find lasts fit well for me

    Carminas feel a bit long but tight at instep / width, EG is good fit, Alden tiny bit long, G&G good fit. Ideally though I have flat feet so smaller sizes would work better but my feet can't get into a RTW shoe comfortably under these sizes



    Beautiful, might have to get a pair myself

    Those are absolutely the perfect pair of fall shoes. The close up shots are wonderful, but the outside photo really show just how well they become part of an overall look. Enjoy!



    I love this color, and these shoes too. Your photos are consistently excellent.

    I'm not sure what P2 is. These are on the F last I believe. I usually wear a UK11/US11.5 I got these in a 44.5 and they fit perfectly.
