Thanks!  Good to know that!  May I know whether you get your Vass museum calf recently? (like within these 2 years)  

 

I somehow recall that the original tannery of museum calf went burst and everyone switched to a new tannery (?)  Just wanna make sure that your comments are still pertinent to the museum calf that Vass is currently offering.

 

Anyhow, really appreciate your comments!

+1 to what peppercorn78 said. I have 3 Vass museum calf shoes (all within past 2 years I think) and one Bonafe museum calf. The Bonafe is definitely thinner. I don't see much difference in thickness between my Vass museum calf and regular calf either. I definitely wouldn't size any differently than you would for regular calf.

Haha, yeah I have posted plenty. Thanks, man! Glad you enjoy them. Also, just a good FYI that Vass can execute this style quite well, for anyone who isn't quite ready to fork out 1300 for the Lobb version. ;)

Thanks for the comments. I would have done the other way around too but I don't want too much overlap. I have so many shoes already and want so,etching different from what I currently have, even when the leather amd colors are the only differences.

I thought I would do an interest check here in the thread before posting them in the Buy and Sell area or putting them on the bay. I have a pair of new in box, U last, mid brown suede chukka boot in size 43.5. PM me if you are interested, price will be very competitve. Trees are included.

I would have hoped that a picture in Ibiza would have shown one of those shoes off with a pile of drinks around it and perhaps some under garments... Maybe I am remembering my time in Ibiza 15 years ago differently.

The beaches are fairly tame and quite void of obnoxiousness when you aren't visiting during Spring Break or peak season. The clubs on the other hand...

I went there for work:embar:.  Although I had a gin tonic after the pic was taken. Crazy party is over for me....

Haha. Like Cabo for the west coast US and Cancun for the East coast US?

Thank you sir. I did have Vass burnish them, a last minute request which Rezso accommodated about 2 weeks prior to completion. Gotta love the service.
