    thanks, their website does a poor job of showing just how nice the F-last is for some of them.

    Website picture look very different to real life.
    Website look like english cap toe,
    Vass F last not look english.
    Me own that black cap toe in link.

    for sheer variety of lasts and styles it's great. Not so good on showing different views and magnifications of one style. New Alfred Sargent site is exemplary

    ah, you mean the i-gent nonsense [​IMG]

    will check the as. has anybody a link at hand?

    Anyone have any thoughts on how a penny loafer would look on the f-last?

    I've been lusting after some loafers, not sure whether to go with the C+J harvard or wait till the next vass order and get a penny loafer cordovan on the F last...

    Yeah thats what i was going to go for, perhaps in a (slightly) darker shade, perhaps cigar.

    Would one size down a half for a penny loafer? Would make sense... despite the fact that i haven't gotten the two f last shoes from the last order a few weeks ago...i'm already planning what to get next time lol. I have a double monk in F on the way and an F last austerity brogue...

    I was thinking penny loafer and some sort of oxford - haven't seen much of vass' penny loafers though. Perhaps also another austerity brogue, i really love those.

    i would think it might be a good idea to size down by half, but it also depend on how the F last fit you generally

    i like Vass's simple perf cap toed oxford the best

    I am a bit confused by the Vass' sizing. Can any of the Vass experts say which last has each shoe?
    The suede one is in size 41, calf in 42. [​IMG] Both fit fine except that probably a little bit wide in the heel area, which can be seen on the photo.
