The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 578

post #8656 of 20251
I was thinking about a captoe blucher on P2, but I thought that would accentuate the wide-ness. Then thinking austerity brogue, but I've never seen an austerity brogue blucher by vass (though it will make it look skinnier, which kind of defeats the point of the blucher's chunkiness)

Also, just arrived: R last oxfords in antique cognac grain on double sole.


The oxfords look very nice indeed. Why the R? Was it a question of fit? How does it compare to the P2?

If that helps, here is a photo we took here

Curiosity really. Fit on these in 45 feels good. I'd say slightly more generous than P2 though a bit shorter. Seems as if the quarters will be completely closed. Will assess further after break in.

Frank, is the R instep higher than the F and P2?  And if you have the time, can you please shoot a few comparison shots of the 3 lasts. Thanks much.

I don't have a pair on the F last yet, so I can compare instep. I'll take some comparison photos of the P2 and R for you certainly and I'll see if I can formulate a useful opinion on the relative instep height of the two.

Thanks Frank! I am convinced a cordo or grain Budapester derby with single goyser on the R would be killer but if the instep is higher than F or P2, that's a no go for me.

These do look better with the lighter colors. The upper has a chance to be appreciated as separate from the sole. I got an all-black pair with Goyser stitching, and by comparison, they look like pontoons. Good enough for snowy days with flannel suits, but I wouldn;'t try that again.

Are yours straight Cognac, or antique? (Or original Cognac with a lot of conditioner added?)

sstomcat - very nice - I got nuthin' but love for that Budapester vibe.

Concordia - I have to say I don't think black is well suited to this style, but I do think the renditions I have seen in oxblood and dark brown look terrific.

These are classics, but you have to like them to appreciate them. Again these are not for all, specially those with a fascination for the chiseled shape shoes like U and K. I'm a pretty big guy, 6'2 size 45.5 and I think these go pretty well on my feet with both dark and light colored cotton khakis. I don't like wool so never wore them so unsure how they will look on formal trousers.

These are cognac scotch grain with a coat of reno and light brown Saphir paste wax, so I would say they are pretty much original.

Good show. If I needed another pair with double-soles, I'd put that on the list.

Personal preferences I guess but I do love my shell in black, it does have a certain uniqueness to it with the added shell sheen.
