@RogerP just lazy ass MFers. In my area it's UPS and USPS that are awful.

Looking furward to seeing them.

By the by, do you happen to own an alt wein boot? I'm having trouble locating pics in the wild...

@RogerP - that is the worst. But I'm sure it's going to work out. No excuses though, that's just absolute Shite by DHL.

could be worse - they could've blundered an incoming watch nod[1].gif

Found this example, while browsing Ascot Shoes' eBay store:

They have a couple more pairs currently in stock, I believe.

@RogerP
I hear you and feel your pain.
Numerous shoe buys have been spoilt by incompetent / unscrupulous couriers for me.
Especially DHL, which is the worst.
In my case, they've added on arbitrary amounts in the value of the parcel to make up the minimum for charging tax on it. Claiming it as courier charges. Then went ahead to charge tax. Even though the declared value by the merchant was well under the taxable value. They've done this several several times.

All's well that ends well:

looking excellent, @RogerP !! Is it me, or are all the recent Valway patterns slightly different from the older, more Galway-esque models? Seems like the "V" is more stilted as well. I like it! Just seems different.

To tell you the truth, I never thought the Valway looked very Galway-esque, despite the basic similarities in pattern.  These probably appear to be more of a departure because we simply don't see this type of lugged sole on a Galway (at least, I haven't seen one).  And of course, heavy Norvegese stitching is not part of the Galway experience, either.

Congrats @RogerP!

Does Vass offer any color resembling GG/EG "Oak"?

 

I'm in need of a mid-brown shoe and I'm not sure Antique Cognac really fits that look. I already own Gold Museum.

 

Thanks

post #19875 of 20242

^ No. GG/EG Oak is between Vass Antic Cognac and Dark Brown. You can darken AC if you're inclined to do a little work yourself. I've asked Rezso about this a couple times. I wish they would add something similar to Oak and not museum.
