My pleasure.

Very Nice!!

RogerP spot on - the Oxblood Calf a splendid and versatile colour. Goes well with a formal suit in Navy or Grey.  And works well weekend wear with Jeans.

Oxblood is a must-have IMO.

Thanks everyone for the compliment. I find Vass is the easiest shoes to shine. It took me around 30-45 mins to get that.

While all leathers will vary, curious if anybody else has experienced a noticeable difference in leather thickness for the same or similar model shoe when comparing a Vass's regular calf to Museum leather?

Regular calf is a bit thicker than Museum calf.

That's correct - the regular calf sourced from our French tannery is about 20% thicker than the 

more delicate Museum Calf.

So, does the thinner museum calf mean that it is more delicate than the regular calf?
