Thanks sacafotos.  Both you and sestyle touch on points that reveal that this particular order wasn't as smooth as others.  It took quite a bit longer than expected - though I know Notch tried to rattle their cage a couple times.  But I wasn't in any particular rush and Notch kept in touch to let me know I was not forgotten.  The potentially larger issue was that these were actually supposed to be navy museum calf.  If they are, they are doing a magnificent job at masquerading as solid navy. :)

 

Now I say potentially larger issue, because on opening the box I knew I loved the shoes.  Not a moment of doubt on that score. It actually took me a couple minutes to think "but wait, these don't look like museum..."  Secondly, the leather itself is exceptionally supple.  I don't know of any universally accepted method of objectively quantifying the quality of leather on a finished shoe.  But I've owned many Vass, and the leather quality here seems a small but perceptible notch (pardon the pun) above that of my other pairs.

 

So I am a happy camper.  And still curious to see what navy museum looks like on a finished shoe.  I do have plans for a navy boot down the road, so who knows. :D 

 

@arahat - those are super nice, particularly the boots.

Wow, that navy is something else, who needs navy museum when the regular navy is so lustrous :)

 

My mid brown suede OE's from NMWA seem to be sitting in customs...can't wait!

That's definitely an overstatement and a gross generalization of different peoples. Maybe it's true for populous of your region but the Italian lasts were designed for Japan, where shoe sizes were much smaller, narrower heel, and wider front.

But the front isn't wide. :confused:

They do have the tendency to wear foot corsets. Asian customers prefers to have their bespoke shoe made tight, to create an more elegant shape.

I'm Asian, and that kind of describes what I'm looking for in a shoe yet I think Vass is a high instep relative to the insteps of other makers like EG and GG. I didn't know my asian foot was supposed to have a high instep. My feet must be retarded.

@RogerP  those might be on the navy museum because I have the navy calf, and mine look much lighter than those. yours look almost black, mine are definitely blue.
