That's seriously amazing! I checked all the major brands and they all have the triangular edges (though better ones are minimized). I always thought the handmade part just made the construction and quality better but this is very visible. Seriously good stuff and makes it look so much more elegant. <3 vass.

I concur with your preference for the straight edges (and I own the OEII myself). However your post reminded me of a feature often found on Vass with broguing, perhaps only noticeable with the OCD eye of an SF'er who has slightly too much time on his hands. By this I mean inconsistencies in the broguing pattern.

It's not a major flaw by any means, but it bothers me more on an formal Oxford style shoe than it would on a rustic Derby.

...while we're on the geeky subject of shuu details, I must admit that I've grown bored of broguing. Smart pairs just look cleaner, more formal and rounded without all those holes to stop eyes gliding from back to front. Austerity, plain or gimped pairs for me from now on, thank you.

I noticed that also. Hence the reason I go for austerity on my oeii.. To minimize the chance of inconsistency on the broguing should that really happen. Morever it has a more formal feel.

That being said, I am already setting my sight on a full brogue antique cognac f last ... biggrin.gif

^ I have asked about the OEII without broguing myself...that is perfect. Vass should just fit it in as a standard 65.5 model and sell a ton of them.

post #12035 of 20262
meh, I have both and like both equally well. Choice comes down to the specific shoe / boot and where it fits in the rotation.

Hmm...maybe it is. Seems like most standard models have some stock, but the last time I checked there weren't any and I'd have to order...not a big deal.

I know I'm late to the party on the NMWA u-cap, but wow, what a nice shoe and a perfect fit. The vamp/toe box seems just a shade higher than my other P2 in the same size.

^^^ Those are absolutely fantastic.
