I've mentioned this a few times to everyone who ordered these, but I can't apologize enough for it. Really, I'd love nothing more than to get these shoes in and finally fulfill the backorders. In the time that we've been waiting for these, we've done over 35 MTO styles with Carmina, and we've had great turnarounds on everything. It will be just like that for Vass. As always - anyone who has a long-standing Alden preorder with us can get a refund at any time for either cash (sent to you via paypal) or credit (applied against anything else that we have in stock). Just drop me an email and we'll get it done immediately.

mike, thanks for the update on the alden pre-orders. when are the vass x epaulet styles arriving? biggrin.gif

Mike, can you explain what you mean by "fusible" in the description of the collar for the new chambray shirt? Thanks.

Oh yes, we've got a ton of Aldens on order. Pretty much all of them are non-shell. Lots of scotchgrain, burnished tan calf, and chromexcel. The only Alden shell that I order now is Color #8, as we can get a pretty reasonable delivery on that. And it's a handsome tone that's actually unique to Alden.

I think that we did one Plaza last style, but we're mostly sticking with Barrie-Tru-Balance-Leydon-Aberdeen. I have a ton of slimmer shoes from Carmina, so I order Aldens primarily to be thicker, more casual styles.

Yes, the closest calf color was the Oxblood that we ran way back when in the Brixton boot. That's been discontinued. So I believe this Alpine Grain is the only calf offered in this color.

But I agree - its phenomenal! I'd love to develop a similar calf color for our Vass makeups.

This is a totally brilliant idea - let's definitely do this for the first Vass MTO project!

We typically order Alden's down to a US8 equivalent, so 7.5's come in Barrie and Tru-Balance.

That's realistically the smallest size that we'll stock in our shoes, but you'll be able to order a true US7.5 in Vass or Carmina via an MTO project or a personal MTO item.

My pleasure. Our first Vass style will be in the Santa Monica store for the opening. That's the scotch grain austerity brogue. The next delivery is mid September.

Haha, I'll see if I can get some swatches together. Lots of flannel, lots of new dress shirts...

Sure, fusible fabric sits in the collar and cuffs to give them shape. That's how the collar works.

"Hard" or "Stiff" fusible is used for dress shirts and gives you that snappy, sharp collar

"Soft" fusible is used in casual shirts, which allows the collar to mold around you. We typically use that in our casual shirts (like the frost chambray)

I'd be interested in seeing if you can use this alpine grain in a Vass makeup.

Are the Vass austerity brogues going to be in-store in Santa Monica only or online as well?

sneakers are nice but probably be too expensive.

Sorry if this has been covered, but I didn't see anything come up on the search or recent pages of the thread. I want to buy a couple pairs of rivet chinos but am worried about the cotton twill on the inside of the leg that shows when you cuff - I work in a somewhat conservative environment and would at least like the option of being able to have a tailor remove part of it. I'm not sure that it's gonna fly. Is this at all possible?

Thanks in advance!
