    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.

    Miles better than Ascot's previous make-ups.
    Definitely a thumbs-up from me.

    Nice.

    I have the same MTO make-up, but on the U last. For comparison:

    Both are better than nice IMO. That wonderful sweeping side brogueing on that model is my favourite Vass.

    I ordered the exact pair from Ascot back in Nov - the deal was sweeter since I asked them to send to
    my Swiss work address, to take the 20% VAT off.

    The F last is very similar but a touch more rounded than the Lobbs 7000 last and Crocketts 350 last.
    The Lobbs 7000 & Crocketts 350 is more pointed for my liking...Shoes are nice are wearing well, but
    looking to order these in K last in Oxblood grain/calf combo.

    Some advice would be very appreciated regarding Vass last shapes. I'm thinking of ordering a pair of RTW for the first time by internet - no possibility right now to go to Budapest - but am confused by their shapes and the website photos are not very helpful, giving only one view of all the models. I don't want anything too narrow, but on the other hand, the Budapest last seems very wide and old fashioned. So I'm looking for something in between the two. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.

    Lots of info along those lines available on the dedicated Vass thread:

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/130044/the-ultimate-vass-porn-thread/9075

    F, K and U-lasts are all trimmer / sleeker overall than the Budapest. The main difference in fit between them is in the toe box - F is the most round of the three. U is more chiseled, and K more so still.
