Well, that's a rather memorable combination of letters, now isn't it?

my sources tell me they are working hard with an italian guy to develop the C last as soon as possible. It will be a soft chisseled last, middle ground between the U and the K.

It's tough to beat the smell of opening a brand new shoebox of Vass.

Either should be great. It really just depends on if you want a more casual shoe (Alt Wien) or slightly sleeker one, although still casual. If you do go the Alt Wien route I'd lean towards keeping the medallion. They have a few medallion options so best to specify which one.

If the black cordovan is non-negotiable, I would go with the Alt Wien in either 3636 or P2. I'm not a fan of black cordovan, so personally I would go with the London in black scotch grain or black calf in the P2 last, either with a double sole or black vibram for a casual shoe.

I wish Vass had more choices of color so options are limited to black and bordo. Any reason for your dislike black shell?

I own black shell and like it (my pair has more of a matte finish for whatever reason which I enjoy), but I think the nicest shell colors Vass has access to are Antique Cognac and Dark Brown. To me they are the epitome of what a great brown should be.

It's not that I dislike it, just that one of the things I like about shell is the different shades and color changes of the leather with time, don't know how black shell will age. also, I like to polish black shoes and give them a nice shine and black shell is kind of matte (at least the ones I've handled from Alden). I prefer calf in black.

According to the Vass web site, they offer antique cognac and dark brown horsehide, they don't have any even on backorder?
