Same here - I'll go for wholecut in oxblood on the U or K lastQuote:Originally Posted by j ingevaldsson
Wholecuts on U or K are a marvellous choice. I actually think K might be even better for it. I myself am going to order a black clean wholecut on the K-last, don't know in which order I want to go with my coming purchases though so well see when I pull the trigger on those.
I think the picture above, Swede66, is oxblood. In sunlight it looks quite reddish, but indoors when darker they are almost black. Beatiful color.
Dlind, as for a cobbler in Stockholm, Bäckmans are great, but I think that the best one definately is Carina and her collegue at Skomakeri Framåt in Gamla stan.
And about wholecuts creasing, of course they do. But to me that's part of the beauty. I mean shoes do crease, and different models crease differently, that's part of the deal. If you don't want shoes to crease, don't wear them.
Oxblood in W/C so versatile....Quote:Originally Posted by dg626
My first order from Vass! Old English II Oxblood. The photos aren't great, as you can probably tell I took them during night time.
I paid for topy as well, not sure if I'll get one for my next order. Any thoughts?
I hope it's your first of many....Enjoy.Quote:
My only recommendation is to physically try them on (if possible).
Or stick to your usual size and use insole for extra snugg-ish....post #7044 of 202715/15/13 at 6:29pmQuote:
My recommendation, forget about the U,K lasts on this one, too common and a little boring. go for the wholecut with perforations AND medallion in the F last - oxblood or black (I ordered this one in oxblood). It will look great, like that lovely wholecut in the Japaneese thread.post #7045 of 202715/16/13 at 12:55amQuote:Rikod, thanx for your input. Do you have any photos of them to share?Originally Posted by rikod

The beuty is that it does not have to be either or. One can have both 😊post #7046 of 202715/16/13 at 4:00amQuote:
Swede - a big headache with all the last from Vass..........I think we should all wait for the new C last..... This will give us all a massive f'''ing headache...post #7047 of 202715/16/13 at 4:02ampost #7048 of 202715/16/13 at 4:09ampost #7049 of 202715/16/13 at 4:24ampost #7050 of 202715/16/13 at 2:39pm
