    Is that OEII in U or K? For some reason they don't look as aggressively chiseled...

    The front pair is OE Plain in F-Last, the other is OEII on U-Last. Pictures are from the Vass shop, so I cannot offer additional angles.

    Want to share my first Vass MTO impression from Ascot, oiled green River model K last 42,5 taken with flash:

    first impression, nice colourway, the picture didn't do justice, way more deep in real life
    very soft and supple leather, never thought will be this soft, crease quite easily
    first try, fit is quite good, a little bit big on the vamp area, but the others fill up quite nice, i think i can't go down half size with this

    K last chisel is nice, but a little bit bulbous when you actually wear it compared when you see from the picture
    Lasted shoe tree is great, but for the money, i'd prefer tree from cedar wood

    as for Ascot, they're very helpful with sizing and sammy is very patient for answering all my question
    at first i'm reluctant and doubtful with the outcome, but now after handling it, i'm quite happy with my Vass
