I think the powder has to get under the sockliner, but hell, I'll try and put it on anyway, and see if anything happens.

Museum calf, haf and f-last? 

 

Looks nice.

Very nice @Torsion. I like the austerity brogues in different museum colors. Was struggling to determine what color to get myself. Brown is pretty solid. Would be nice to see it in plum museum calf on u last too.

Squeeks can come from a number of different places in the shoe. Between the sockliner and the insole is most likely not the problem though, since it's glued in place, so don't think about that. It's likely that it is internal, which means that some powder won't help either, unfortunately, but you can always give it a try. It's leather against leather, or the cork filling, that causes squeekiness in most cases. That's why many bespoke makers prefer felt to fill the space between insole and outsole, since felt don't make noices. It's getting harder and harder to get these days though.

 

In many cases the squeekiness will disappear in some time. If it don't, and the powder don't help, you might have to send them and have Vass open them up to fix, or have a good cobbler do the same.

If you stick a bit ordinary talcum powder or similar in there, and wear it for a day, it will work its way in around the sock anyway.  You will also be almost certain not to develop athlete's foot.

I've always assumed his English is fine and/or native, and that this spiel is just part of his anonymous character.  In between the lines, the dude knows a lot about shoes.  He also likes to be very measures in his criticism.  Industry insider at a place of note, I would speculate.

Budapester model, I think 3636 last, possibly in shell cordovan - but if it's a standard model in normal calf, then it would be model number 4 on the website, I think.

Museum in U
Untitled

Chukka works but the same "bowing" feeling is present so I think the U last might not fit me the best. The ankle lacing helps with it though so these are keepers! They do remind me of C&J's Tetbury due to the toe shape and length.

Model 04: double sole, 3636 last. Looks to be in cigar shell as well. Refer to one of my marketplace listings, it's looks exactly like it, except it's in dark brown calf and not shell.

 

i know it's subjective, but proportionally Vass nailed the design big time.
