1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    Not in antic cognac but 6125. Visualize it a bit lighter. If you're in Canada, I can help you with your next MTO.

    F is a great choice for a chukka, IMO.

    PSA : for those in the US and interested in RTW and instant gratification, we are running a special promotion for a few days on European makers. Code is EURO20 and gives 20% off. For the Vass lovers, here that results in a price of ~$600 including trees and shipping to US & Canada.

    Couple new styles we dropped yesterday:

    So I managed to get home for a couple of days and pick up my replacement Vass - these were ordered in 42.5, originally sent in 43, and now delivered agin in.....


    [​IMG]

    Bit surprised this happened twice in a row, but the fit of the 42 is actually pretty good. A bit more snug than my 9uk MH71, but G&G recommended sizing down to 8.5 for my next pair so maybe 42 is fine. I'm going to wear them around the house this evening to see and at this point am cautiously optimistic, but still a bit shocked that the replacement for a wrong simple came in a different wrong size.

    In other topics, if one wears a 42 in U last, does that take the same size in F? I've got a couple of orders I'm thinking through while the euro is low.

    The line to the right of "42" indicates a half size.

    Those are 42.5.

    In Budapest today and called in at Vass where I had the pleasure of finally meeting Mr Kuti in person, a real gentleman. I saw a pair of F last Chukkas in chocolate brown in the store, my god they are gorgeous. If they had had my size then I would have been in like Flynn. Honestly I cannot believe I have seen a better colour in this boot, the whole thing screams class. Sorry no pictures, phone free afternoon.

    1. You got 42,5 as others have stated. The line indicates half size.
    2. I'm a size 41,5 in U. While I'm able to wear the same size in F, I do prefer he snuger fit of a 41 (1/2 size down from U). F in the same size as U is fine the first wearings. But after the break in period and stretching, it's a little to roomy across the vamp and ankle. At least for me.

    Thanks all for clarifying. This is reassuring in two ways. Iirst, that I didnt misjudge my size (the case if I had gotten 42 and it fit) and second that Vass is on top of things.

    I'll post maiden voyage pics later this week, but am already thiinking about Budapest Oxford and dm on the f last, both in oxblood with had soles.

    I have F , 3636, and P2, so I can not compare F Vs. U. But many members here state that for U last you should size up 0.5 compare to F last. Tricky Vass!!.

    I size down 1/2 from U to F. It feels to me that the half size difference fits me "heel to ball" the same. Even a half size larger, the U still has less toe room for me (but enough for my comfort- I find the U my best fit for my foot shape and high instep, but do have to size up by 1/2)

    In most cases you size down half a size from U to F. This is the same for all my clients and myself as well.
