    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Have to agree fellas. All my recent Vass purchases have been on the F last, which also fits me closest to a bespoke shoe of any.

    Yeah, it's a bit inevitable. I've even been purchasing the New Peter last for two pairs of upcoming boots.

    U-last and nothing else. F is ok, but lacks character it is sort of "chinless". However I can see St. Crispins attraction, as they have a very rare old-world aesthetic, as if they came from some 1920 catalogues.

    No... not yet - The ones here are usually not my size or I have been too late, or the ones on eBay are too boring or too much. Im anxiously waiting for my size to hit the sweet spot.

    Why not just buy them directly from Vass?

    Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. F-last makes me go "uncle". The U-last is much younger, sharper.

    The R last is nice too, especially for brogues. Very British.

    I originally bought these shoes for my brother, but they are too big. Vass is difficult to find in Belgium and when I saw thes shoes I jumped right on them. Extremely beautiful shoes IRL [​IMG] . Very sleek and light weigth, the leather is of excellent quality and the shape of the shoe itself is just perfect. If there would be interest in these shoes I will sell the shoes on this forum, since my brother wouldn't cut of his big toe for these [​IMG] Size is 40, or UK 6.5 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Tom

    If I could do it again, I would go for regular height boots rather than ankle height. YMMV of course
