Those are very similar in colour to mine. I think that's the Bonaudo version?

^^^ I think you should be safe, Don. One other forum member (Swede?) got a Vass pair from the same batch at around the same time as me, but since then I haven't seen a pair of gold museum with that strong of a reddish tone from Vass or from anyone else for that matter.

I guess so. Maybe the best thing to do is to shoot Vass a mail and ask about their current batch as compared to that specific shoe and also ask if their current stock is from Ilcea or Bonaudo (given that this less reddish shoe is from Bonaudo).

 

Bonafè currently supplies the kind of Gold Museum I prefer. But then again, I would like to have the Gold Museum made on the U-last like the one I posted. I took a look at Vass' new website, and the Gold Museum they're displaying there is more in line with what I want. If it's the Bonaudo calf I should hurry up as it will disappear from their stock since they've gone back to Ilcea (I think?).

Went with cognac-ish coloured flat laces instead of the old round dark brown ones. Did a lot imho.

This pair above is what I would want mine to look like when/if I actually commission a pair in Gold Museum Calf. The color variance have held me back, though.

Do you, @RogerP
 and/or @pinkpanther
, have any input regarding this? Does Gold Museum appear like the picture I provided above in natural light or is there actually a great variance in color between those and yours? Thanks.

IRL my gold museum doesn't have much (or really any) red in it. Love the color, conservative yet interesting.

Thanks. I've emailed Vass regarding the matter now.

 

This is what they have on their website, and the picture is relatively new so I suppose it's from their latest batch: http://vass-shoes.diego.5net.hu/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/shoes/shoes_5300.jpg?itok=LlULEz7Y It looks much like the one I linked to above. Would you say yours looks like those calfs?

Yep, looks very close to my color.

Edit: wrong photo, d'oh.

Agree that the brown balmoral shoe looks awesome. I'd say U-last, model 126 with medallion, in either dark brown museum or dark brown with burnish.

 

Don't know if it's been that much talk about the fact that Vass offers burnishing on their shoes now, a bit similar in look to Edward Green or Gaziano & Girling, with darkened toe and a bit on heel. They showed it at the Stockholm trunk a couple of months ago, looked pretty good. Here's a pic:

Thanks. I must have missed the burnishing part during the trunk show. How much do they charge for it?

post #12955 of 20262
Great. Now I need burnished Vass.

Don't know if it's free, or if you pay as with Italian polish.

I've now asked Reszö about that brown oxford that you fell in love with. I'll update the info here once I've his answer.

On another note, how could we even enjoy shoes before there was museum calf? All shoes seem to look better with this manna from out patron saint, St Crispin, bestowed from the heavens to our feet. All hail museum leathers!

Personally I think they've been rather over done.  But that doesn't mean I'm not thinking of some. :)

Bro, this pair is mine... To give you a clearer I have uploaded bigger image for you to view. These are taken using my iPhone 5 camera indoor under natural lighting and no editing was done.
I prefer this gold museum to the ilcea gold museum for it is more subtle and conservative... Cheers!
