    My mistake everyone, it is on the U. Regarding sizing, the U is half a size larger (40) than the New Peter (39.5).

    :)

    A subtle fact: the leather on the boot is different from the shoes.

    In all honesty - the right shoe is 100% derived from the U last. BUT the angle of the left shoe does look like the F last... DId you ask Reszo for Vass new hybrid "FU" Last ;) But there no doubt the calf colour contrast extremely well with your checked trousers (pants).

    An F-U combination... hmmm... :satisfied: The combination with my trousers was just a coincidence since I was wearing a different pair but I wanted to check the fit. The suit is one of my favorite for fall/winter. If the U ends up working well... I think an austerity brogue will be next!

    Notch, those balmorals in the dark brown leather/suede combination are wonderful! Thanks for posting, really nice to see all those detailed pics as I've been considering this exact model. Might think of adding a toe medallion to an otherwise super nice design.

    Good day to all!

    I'm a first-time vass buyer and I need some help in terms of sizing on the U-last. I'm a UK7 on C&J 348 last and a UK7.5 on the Loake Aldwych.

    I'm thinking at the moment that I should be a EU41.5.

    Appreciate the kind advice of the goodfolks here.

    Cheers!
