That's one of the nicest renditions of a PL I've seen, but it really needs a less opaque edge paint.

+1. Every Vass shoe I have ever seen suffers from this problem (except the black ones, of course). They don't seem to be able to do it any less opaque than this.

If you ask for light antique edgetrim, it will be much less opaque. It is in fact very, very light and would look great with this penny loafer.

Are you talking about what might usually be referred to as Vass's "natural" edge trim? There have been pictures posted of it before and it is very nice - I would describe that as being "very, very light".

However, it is not really an acceptable middle ground for something like a light brown oxford, which also suffers unnecessarily for the usual Vass edge dressing, as above, and as on any other non-black Vass shoe ever seen or posted.

Or are you referring to something else? A middle ground perhaps that I have not seen?


Caveat: The above complaint has never stopped me purchasing - it is just something I have come to expect and accept about Vass. However, something more like a very dark "stain" as opposed to the usual dark "paint", something which is the norm on every other high-end shoe I have ever seen, would be nice.

it's an easy fix. this is general knowledge, imo.

^ Yes, it's not something that is beyond anyone with a sheet of fine sandpaper, a little brown dye, and some edge wax.

If I were to visit Vass in the near future with the request: 'Make me mid-brown suede chukka-boots on the U with double leather soles (and steel tips) in size 40.5', would this be considered a custom made shoe (185.000 HUF), or would I be asked to pay the 130-140.000 HUF RTW price?

 

Thanks in advance for the answers.

You said "make me"

what do you think?
post #4060 of 13482
Only difference between "make to order"

And

"made to order"

Is that the former is in the present tense while the later is in past tense..

I am in the understanding that when you order shoes in the style, color and last to your liking, it will not cost you extra? Or is this something from the past?

I would be interested in the answer to this question, as well as any pictures of the three piece shoe trees...

there's no real answer. for me it's more traditional. it's a horses for courses decision.

I'm sure someone else with more experience can give you a better answer, but what I know is that when I ordered a pair of double monks a month ago I made my own specification-list with U-last, antique cognac, brass buckles without extra leather piece attaching them, rounded straps and single sole, and I paid the RTW price 420€. I'd also would like to know were the line goes for the MTO?
