Fantastic, Shouldaville!

post #15182 of 20276

Considering NAMOR is a large size, and is having boots made with few real seams for them to join several pieces together, I imagine it'd just be that Vass is using larger shells, which have lower quality areas within them? It was ordered and delivered as shell, sounds like an honest mistake/material defect rather than something malicious.

^Yes, and to clarify from recent conversations with Reszo:

 

1. Vass only uses Horween Shell Cordovan.

2. Horween and other tanneries do sell horsehide, but Vass has not purchased any.

3. There were issues with recent lighter shades and Vass stopped selling those for now, and stands behind the shoes/boots made with that shell if there are issues.

4. The shell comes in multiple sizes, and the larger ones are required for boots. Latest shipment only had smaller pieces. 

5. "Colorless" shell is available which can be "painted" by hand, but Vass is not doing that.

6. Vass only uses neutral wax and polish over the tanned shell. Some others use additional colored products.

how do you explain @NAMOR's boots that are clearly not shell and were sold as shell?

Is that seriously what's being suggested here? @NAMOR?

I'm not sure what is entirely clear, other than I'm pretty sure Vass is working with Namor to figure things out and make him a happy customer.

I can just see our dear friend @NAMOR now, sitting back, looking across his vast domain of beautiful shell cordovans from the best makers all over the world, doing this:  

 

Watching with a sinister grin on his face as us underlings debate the absurd notion that his beautiful Vass rendition of the fabled Galways may not be genuine Horween shell cordovan...
