Wait a minute, 3 piece shoe trees are an option? I'd want those included in my order for sure providing any upcharge isn't crazy. And what does 'close cut bevelled waist' mean? Do you have any pictures comparing a regular waist versus a bevelled waist on a pair of Vass shoes?
I don't think they are currently available, and never were in half sizes, or so I was told. Pity.
P.S. Double soles on mine, natch
Edit: just been told that three piece trees are now available at an extra 40 Euros. Checking on whether they are also available in half sizes and will update.
Vass lasted trees are included in every order as part of the group buy.
Paypal or wire transfers will probably be the most convenient for members outside of Australia. Full payment is required during the settlement deadline tentatively at the end of June 2014.
H width is not a problem though I wonder if perhaps the P2 last in the G-width may work and look better?
Confirmed: three piece trees are available at an extra charge - the normal included ones are sprung, though not sure if there's a special offer for this order.
Either way, the three piece trees are not available in half sizes or wider fittings, so unless your size is a whole number you'd have to order trees that are a bit too small, losing some of their function. The standard sprung trees can be ordered a half size up without any issue, but over-sized three piece ones won't fit.
I would also like to know, thankyou
Sounds good, that June deadline gives me a chance to get two of my choices. Although, i will probably stick with the F and U last in my H width, but thanks for the suggestion...
Oxblood (shell available?) Alt Wien Budapest last size 42. Double sole, steel tipped, 360 goyser. 3 piece trees.

I will confirm the additional charge with regards to the 3-piece shoe trees. As I recall, Vass generally using the nearest sized trees (both regular and 3-piece) for half sizes. Similarly shoe trees are generally available in their standard widths.
Am also trying to get some workshop photos of the 'close cut bevelled waist.'
I've added the newest orders and details to the existing orders. Cheers everyone.
Updated group buy orders

I can confirm that the close cut beveled waist is not an option at the moment. Shoe trees are also available in whole sizes.
