The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 1073

Hey Guys,

 

I just got my first pair of MTO Vass and saw a couple of defects.

 

1. Are these acceptable for brand new shoes? There's some scuffs overall, I can live with that. But the scratches on the first two photos don't seem like they'll go away with polish.

 

2. The museum calf doesn't seem like it has a lot of mottling, like the following shoe; instead, it looks almost like solid plum:

 

 

 

Left Side of Shoe:

 

Creases on Sides:

Worth a remake? I'm not sure if the creasing on the sides are normal. The deep scratches on the left shoes seems to be the most concerning though.

We're did you buy them from & no small scratch those are fine & you can fix them but others things nope it's not acceptable at least to me.

The scratches don't warrant a remake for me. I wouldn't be happy with the belly leather, that's just poor clicking imo.

Totally agree with that.

Agreed with Ozzy, id be more concerned about the poor clicking than the scratches

Pardon my lack of leather knowledge, but what is clicking? Is it type of leather used? Also how did you gents determine it is belly leather? Is belly leather the worst quality option of leather for shoes?

Edit: clicking is the term for shoe making. How did you tell its belly leather and is that the worst option?

Clicking is the term for selecting the area of the hide and cutting patterns for the various parts of the shoe.

 

Usually the belly area has stretch marks and is not a high quality area to be making shoes from.

Thanks! I guess it's evident thought the last two photos of the creasing on the sides, right? If not, what other areas are signs of poor leather quality? Thanks all.

I'll request a remake with better hide and clicking.

Did you try them on at all, and did you specify Italian polish (high gloss)? If so, they could be the leather creasing, which becomes highly visible with Italian polishing.

 

Finishing aside that's a really nice adelaide you ordered...very distinctive.

@NAMOR

 

Which of the 2 Vass lasts; "F" and "R" would you say is more aesthetically pleasing, and elegant?

 

I read where you said that "R" was roomier.

 

Thanks My Friend.

Yeap, they really f*cked up on that one.

EG rejected a pair of Dovers for a similar reason.
