yep, they said 4 weeks for production, which is pretty quick if you ask me! I had it made up in the p2 last and was contemplating between a bal and blucher, but ended up with the latter as I should get more wears with it. Super excited and will post pics once they arrive!

Glad to know I'll still be able to get my Vass the good ol' fashioned way!

 G, when u said Vass was moving to Goodyear  it was like somebody took a dump on a fairy,  but then Slew saves the day with the word from the horse's mouth.  

 

Just doesn't make sense that Vass would go gemming when as someone else said, their brand  reputation in i-gent land and all over  is founded on

 

 

 518Wd9RGABL._SL500_AA300_.jpg  and  'my love and reverence for the shoemaker's craft'.      Sure, maybe they'll do both, but way to diminish the brand's cache.  Whatever,  I'm appreciating those little bumps on the insole more.

i know the number for shoe trees is around 2500 - 3000 per anno. do the math.


Assuming 250 working days per year and Vass only uses that shoe tree provider, then it translates to 10 pair of hand welting per day...

 

Seems reasonable if they only have one hand welting guy...  But do they have only one?
