I believe that is including VAT.

That is a very reasonable price increase (VAT Inc).  Thanks Mr. Vass!!

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.

This. As of last winter shoes were €390 for the classic lasts and €420 for the modern lasts. If anything the surprise is that they have harmonised pricing, more than the nominal €30 price increase on the modern lasts.

I've seen oiled green calf from them as well as green museum calf. Alternatively, you can send any pair to some patina guy who's able to either strip the old colour and add a new one, or just add layers until you've got a racing green-type you like.

The same happens to me.  My question is why?.  Is it a matter of making  a more forgiving pattern for a boot than for a shoe as a general rule?.  Any input?

I'm incredibly tempted to order myself an MTO briefcase but I'm having a hard time finding examples of bags already made.

 

Does anyone have any pictures that you're eager to share?

I have a decently high arch so often shoe fitment comes down to quarters , before vamp or length. downsized twice on the C&J 348s going from shoe to boot and still not happy.
