Placed the order for these half a year ago and they just came in. You guys are probably sick of seeing gold museum austerity brogues by now though biggrin.gif.

This.  Very cool kicks. (Year and a half??)

I'll never tire of seeing good, or in this case fantastic, ones. Crappier, lesser attempts get the quick scroll...

Congrats!

looks like he said half a year, but that is exorbitantly longer than the normal 4-6 weeks. Who did you order through ironist? I can't imagine it was direct thru Vass

Unless he was waiting for a specific leather. Ilcea did not get their leathers out until just a few months ago; other tanneries were being used during the brief hiatus.

I guess if he specified Ilcea gold museum because he preferred that to the ones other members like RP got, that would be understandable.

Thanks guys. Yes, it was back in February so 6 months / half a year. When I placed the order I didn't see any gold museum austerity brogues. During that time I saw like half a dozen or so gold museum shoes in the exact same makeup so I didn't think it had anything to do with shortage. I was hoping they were just trying to find me the perfect shade of gold museum calf since I wanted something closer to the ilcea ones and I did mention it but these look like the same shade as the other ones I've seen so I don't know.

I ordered it through Notch but I wouldn't lay any of the blame with him, he's been terrific. Around 2 months ago I messaged him thinking the order was lost but he contacted Vass and they said the shoes were almost finished. We're not really sure why it took so long for this particular pair but I have a hunch they just lost my order and started the shoes around the time I complained to Notch. That's the only thing that makes sense and I would understand since mistakes happen. However, if this was the case, I would have preferred they just told me the truth rather than saying it was almost done as I probably would have changed my order. I guess if I was more of a complainer I would have gotten them sooner but like I said, I was kind of hoping they'd take long enough to get me an ideal pair biggrin.gif.

They look pretty ideal to me!
I think the Aussie group order swamped them so its very possible yours fell thru the cracks

The saddle shoe look of those is a bonus to the simple austerity brogue.

Yes, wide fit (G).
All cap toes from Vass get cap creasing. Inner toe puff is shorter than outer cap.
