    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.

    Thank you. That will be extremely enlightening and probably the final nail on the Vass order wallet coffin [​IMG]

    P2 being a fair bit lower in profile (and longer) than 3636.

    Does anyone have any decent pictures of the P2 last in an oxford? The ones in the shoe pictorial don't do a great job of showing the last.

    Lordy, lordy.

    What model is this? And where did you order it?

    For that matter, any place in particular where people are placing their orders?

    I can't see this model on the Vass site; anyone know what last this is on and what is the fit like?

    Much obliged.


    It is on the U-Last, some kind of ankle boot. Just describe it to them when you place your order or email a picture.

    Just looking at that sole edge makes me want to make Vass #8 and possibly 9.

    Having wide feet and having tried the P2 and the F Last, I would say that the P2 is the more wide foot-friendly.

    Moo P2 and F are the same in width IMO - definitely not U unless you specify U last wide.

    U, F and P2 are about the same width at the ball of the foot.

    However the width of these lasts at the toe areas are very different. U has the least toe space, F has pretty standard toe space, and P2 has the most toe space.

    This looks good, the whole combo, argyles, corduroy and shell. Nice job.

    Help needed. I am an 8.5 wide - 9 D in Allen Edmonds, and sometiems even a 9.5 in some other brands (Alfani). My feet width is 4 3/16 inches, length 10 inches (so that's misshapen right there) and I currently wear shoes anywhere up to 12 inches in length and 4 5/8 inches in width. Questions: I am not sure what combo of Vass last and size to order. How do the lasts size - up, TTS or down? I know from the above that the P2 last seems to be the widest. So would an 42 size in P2 work best? Thanks for the help.

    probably the 3636 is the widest and besides the most manly...
