The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 686

post #10276 of 20242
Great forum! Thank you for educating me on the subject of quality shoes, especially Vass.

I will soon post my collection.

I have 2 Vass pairs. I just noticed one issue on my newest pair while wearing them for the first time. While sitting, I can see the stitching of the upper to the sole (on the insides of the shoe). Is this an issue?

U last, double to single sole, 6125 dark cognac:

Welcome! That is a sloppy welt stitch, and I would definitely contact Vass about it, and think that they will exchange it without a problem. It's a mistake that sometimes happens, but haven't seen it from Vass before.

Mimo - I think you have hit on the difficulty with Vass GMTO quite precisely.

 

Montecristo - love those shoes!  I second J's suggestion that you contact Vass about the stitching issue.

It's all very well when the cost of MTO is 50% like Carmina or Meermin, but when it's more like 15-20% for Vass, why go through the hassle of trying to agree with everyone else?  After all, the point of MTO is getting what you really want that isn't already available.

 

Still, like I said, I'm up for one as a matter of community spirit!  Anything you fancy, Roger?

Exactly - which explains why there will likely never be a St. Crispin's GMTO.

 

I am open to a few bal-boot ideas. 

 

1) The blue ankle boot I posted earlier - I'd prefer the tall boot version, but open to the ankle height as well.

2) The oxblood or oxblood/bordeaux austerity brogue boot I described earlier.

3) An all-oxblood captoe bal boot.

4) Dark or medium brown captoe bal boot of some kind.  Less certain of this as I may grab an EG Shannon to fill this slot.

 

I'm probably out of anything shoe-related as I have two existing orders outstanding.

You guys are killing me, I'm all good with boots. I am interested in chukkas though.

@mimo
I for the most part agree, I would simply do all my VASS MTOs through Notch.

In the spirit of supporting an affiliate vendor however, I will consider a GMTO, even if it means paying a little more in comparison...
post #10282 of 20242

I like basically all of Roger's ideas.  And I'd really like a chukka.  Anyone for ostrich? (OK, I had to ask...)

Here's a blue ankle boot from Ascot that I am seriously craving, though.  Might have to order a tall version for the fall.

prurient, if I may make a suggestion: beige shoe laces would give better contrast than black ones on those sturdy boots of yours. This because the welt is of natural colour. I always use laces with the same colour as the welt for this contrast.

Some of you might remember that I ordered a U-cap boot a few weeks ago. They're finished now, but a mistake was made: They were made with a normal wingtip, rather than a U-cap. They'll either remake them for me, or offer them to me at a discount. I'm seriously considering taking the discount as I was originally going to order a wingtip, but there's another reason: they look GREAT.
Opinions?



post #10286 of 20242
I'd definitely keep those at a discount and put it towards another pair with a U cap or something else. Are those shell?
post #10287 of 20242
I'd take the discount and the boots. What size are they?

They're in burgundy shell, size 42. It's really quite tempting, as I've got a few other possible purchases lined up, and a discount is always appreciated when you're a student.

Getting boots that gorgeous, and then getting the price reduced after the fact is like..... Christmas.... or something.
