They are definetly great!!!.....and talking about VASS COMBOS....I ordered the P2 last for a pair of Black Oxfords in box calf....

 

Why such a combination that it is not a skickler for tradition (sorry if my english is poor for this forum)?. First of all, I do not wear suits with tie, so no need to be pure traditional neither in my enviroment nor to myself.  Second, it is a unique combination of what a like nowadays: classical refinement with tasty hard pattern.  For me its a kind of jamming session of Rock& Roll and Classical music performance. I really do apreciate the sleeks/refine shoes like JL/EG/GG put on the others but no to found of wear them myself and, furthermore, I love gunboat shoes (Alt Wien-derby) not too striking.  If you add the shell leather to the mix, I think the Combo becomes a master piece.

 

 VASS COMBOS are so, A UNIQUE MASTERPIECE, like my tortilla de patatas sandwich.

 

Were them in good health.

That will be perfect. Dark brown pebble is excellent. Had that same combo in a pair of loafers that were too narrow. I had to sell them. I miss them.

anyone browse B&S recently and notice all the Vass for sale? i cant recall a time when Ive seen so much of it on the secondary market and offered at solid prices. fortunately nothing in my size
post #12791 of 20262
It appears that there is a lot of sizing experimentation going on among buyers. This invariably leads to selling shoes when the sizing does not work out.
post #12792 of 20262
I can only speak for myself. The reason I'm sellin mine is not out of sizing errors, but to many (similar) shoes. But I agree there're alot of Vass shoes in B&S at the moment.

 Double Monkstraps.  I have not received yet my first order from Vass and I am allready thinking about the next ones. It will be much apprecited any pics of a Vass double monk with 1.-Double sole (any last). 2.-P2 last and 3.-Oxblood Shell. Mny Thnks   

post #12794 of 20262

^^^ I'd be curious to see what a P2 dubmonk looks like.

post #12795 of 20262
Does anyone have a photo of a cap toed Vass on the P2 last. Darker colours if possible, I am wondering if the P2 is appropriate for this style (OE, OE2) or should I go with a wider F? The P2 fits me perfectly in 44.
