Love that first galosh cap toe. Is Antique Cognac shell the same as cigar shell, and that's just Vass terminology? Love the shade of color. Congrats.

Thanks. Mr Kuti listed antic cognac and cigar as different shades. Cigar is darker and deeper brown, antic cognac has more reddish tones. Will take pictures in person when they arrive and compare with my other shells.

That would be very help full comparing all of the shell so I have a better idea which vass shell is much closer to your awesome Alden collection shell that you have.

Isn't antic cognac what horween calls dark cognac, and AE calls brown?

I couldn't fins this on here, so I figured I'd share the current price list which I got from Rezso today:

Enjoy (Or slightly cringe at the slightly increased prices)!

 

Edit: Nevermind the cringe, still the best value for your money as far as I'm concerned.

Maybe. But I've seen photos of antic cognac that look much more reddish - more like mahogany shell, than dark cognac. It's so confusing, I don't even bother anymore.

Indeed they do exist, but in person at the shop I was also advised that the taps are best reserved for 2x soles

1. Do people take the same size in chukkas as in regular (non-boot) shoes?

2. Danite or leather sole?

3. Thinking F last; bad/good idea?

4. Thinking rubber toe taps; bad/good idea?

5. Anything else I should consider?

1. ive had multiple boots from multiple brands, chukkas and otherwise, that ive been happier going down from 0.5 to 1.5 sizes. more relevant i have a pair of split toe boots from vass that fit better compared to oxfords on same last, going 0.5 size down...and these are full laceups, not just 2x eyelet chukkas. could ahve gone down 1.0 size still

have no idea where the bulk of their sales are but the USD has made huge gains on the EUR and HUF going back to 2014...
post #17202 of 20287
Are those prices inclusive, or exclusive of vat?
post #17203 of 20287
Which last is most similar to Alden Barrie in your opinion?

I usually find this Flickr collection very useful for Vass lasts ... https://www.flickr.com/photos/34481664@N02/sets/72157629322015826/

Back in the day around three or four years ago, the starting price for regular calfskin Vass shoes was 420 euros. These were made on the company's regular lasts, excluding F, U, and such. Shoe trees were 25 euros and shipping inside EU borders was around 20 euros.

Looking at this new list, I'd say the prices have risen mildly. Vass could raise them much more and still offer the best price-quality deals in European fully handmade shoes. Granted, St. Crispin's pairs have better-looking lasts and finer finishing, but they do cost around 2.5 times more.
