I was told no shell on Budapest last and Norweger, you seemed to be an exception. Terrific, enjoy
Best is to use Bordeaux Shell, remember there is a light and dark shade of Bordeaux so good to be specific.
Vass also refers to cigar as brown shell. Per Vass Saddle, Whiskey and Cognac shell are three different colors, with whiskey and cognac almost very similar.
Are you wearing a Panerai?
Ahh---I see you meant the sockliner which is gluedPlease note the insole, welt and upper are inseamed together. You will have to cut the seam and in essence literally destroying the shoe.
conditioner plus polish it has neatsfoot oil which is supposedly good for shell.
Why no shirts in 17.5 or 18 please?
V nice, are all your trousers Bills?
Yep P2 and Norweger is a killer too, I have one in calf and wanted one on the Budapest last in Shell, sad that they do not do it anymore.
sure wont duck, I like the Alt Wien style in cordovan by Vass, F last plain derby in Bordeaux shell and a Bentivegna by Piergocomi.What I like - Fit, fit and fit. hand welted, hand lasted and reasonably priced comes second.What I dont like - have to work with standard lasts and patterns. Quality control not as stringent.
