Not 100% sure (was a while ago) but I believe the color was antique cognac

you should ask gdl203 for a picture of his vass norweger, u-last with goyserer welt. probably you can find it, as it has been posted several times on request. it's been a while, though.
dover - it's a nice pair of shoes, it's a dover. that's all.

im noticing the differences more and more. the vass norweger is the best one ive seen. Vass got the proportions correct

I don't remember - same price as the other models.

And how do you acquire them?

Is Kolecho still the SF contact for Vass?

I bought all of my Vass shoes straight from Vass, via email orders. It's hard to imagine anything simpler and more fail-proof than that, as long as you're very clear about what you're ordering, details, etc...

I'm pleasantly surprised (for my future pocketbook) that the Japanese have not caught on to Vass yet, as far as I know, because the details such as a seemless heel cup is right up their alley.

it's only a question of time...

Peter is very narrow. I can't wear it.

New Peter I can squeeze into, although the shoe that I bought ended up being too long to be really comfortable to walk in. (Support was in the wrong place, and instep was low.)

3636 is sort of like a wide Peter. If you look at the Vass website at their Norwegers and English oxfords on the Peter last, the 3636 looks almost identical. Except that I can wear that model.

I would like this model http://www.vass-cipo.hu/Eng/Modellek_10_TeliEsNyari/Modell_10_090_Kicsi.html on F-last and with rubber sole. Anyone has pictures of this apron work by VASS on a shoe , not boot? I am trying to imagine my next MTM and i am leaning toward cigar shell for this.

Cheers. That was me.

Does anyone know where I can find a listing of the suede color Vass stocks? I want to pick up a few double monks.

Also how does the F last compare to the U in sizing? The U last fit me in length but a shallow toe box caused chafing on the tops of my toes. I'm between a 43.5 and 44 in the Peter.

Finally, what lasts do you all think would look handsome on a suede monk? I think I saw some K lasts a few pages back that looked interesting.
