I agree with Less is More. Goyser looks better expressed on a PTB or the like with a simpler upper design. Just my 2 cents.

I agree with you in general, but this shoe in shell, P2, goyser 270 degrees, metal plates, natural sole edges, everything (no metal eyelets), will be my next, I will wear it proudly and I will love the excess, sometimes that is good, like a long and self indulgent guitar solo, it might be exaggeration, but it's damn good if the player is.

in the end it all depends on your location & social demography. there's still the 270 goyserer welt and vass makes a damn fine goyserer welt.

coming from someone, who could wear them every day...

I think the cap toe looks good on both. I just think that Vass' version looks less refined and more amorphous. More rustic maybe? It would go well with chinos but not a suit. The EG version (and JL) would do well with a suit and looks more rakish.
I love Vass F last but something about their D.M. leaves something to be desired.

well, the fact that vass struggles with the double to single tapering has been discussed several times. the cap toe discussion splits the parties. last is a personal preference either. fit + look and feel are important, imo. although the dm is mentioned in the vass book, it is a niche product and not representative for the pedigree of the austro-hungarian shoemaking tradition. it's a niche model, imo.

agreed. never seen it before. someone should ask, if this is an mto option.

I'm thinking antique cognac shell, let's see what happens, no rush, as you well said.

This shoe should have been gibson with no goyser, it makes no sense to me in balmoral.
