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

    Does anybody own Vass Brown and Dark Brown shoes? I'd love to see those 2 in the same pic for comparison's sake.


    Hey Jok, as of this afternoon I have zero debt and this is a 3 paycheck month. It's a matter of time before I pay GTA Shoeshine another visit!

    For me:
    CJ 325 7E
    EG 888 7E
    JL 7E
    Alden Barrie 7.5E
    Alden TB 7.5D
    Viberg 2030 7.5
    Vass F 40.5 standard

    I think 40.5 narrow would work just fine for you.

    What distinguishes a "Budapest Oxford" from a non-Budapest Oxford?

    Looking for input on VASS F sizing. I have a normal to wide foot. CJ 341 last I can take a 8.5UK snug. Carmina rain last UK9. Branock around 10.5

    I am thinking size 43 may do the trick. Thoughts?

    If you have high instep, 43 wide. F last has low instep girth compare to, say, JL 9E, EG 9.5E.

    Are you sure about your brannock and/or c&j size? Two sizes down seems crazy. My one size down c&j's are easily the smallest shoes I own.

    If truly a 10.5 Brannock, I'd start with 43.5 first. The UK9 Rain must also be snug? Not sure how you fit in a 8.5 CJ. Maybe you're closer to a Brannock 10.

    Dude my brannock sizing is 11USA and this size shoes are huge on me. Most usa shoes I fit in are 9.5 or 10 just depending upon brand & last. So it's not all that crazy to go two size down. In my humble opinion & SA at Nordstrom also said this. Those measuring devices are out dated & not properly callaberated.

    I take my brannock size in every normal fitting last, sold by AE or Alden. When I don't, I take one half size down. I'm not talking about the brannock arch length measure, just overall length.

    What last do you take at minus 1.5?

    Weird. I take a 7.5b in that last, the same as my brannock. A 7 was too short in a narrow width.

    Honestly I just had my brannock remeasured yesterday again because I thought this is nuts. But nope same result size 11 according to that & D aka medium width. Was done by SA at Nordstrom & again tried on size 11 shoes. They were too big it was not even funny.
