What last(s) would you recommend?

So they altered an existing last for you? If so sounds like you should stick with that and just alter a bit further either through Kolecho or your previous contact. If you choose a new last the F could be good. To be honest, in a size 47 / 13 I would seriously consider the 3636 last. It has a classic shape with a high instep and in a size that big I imagine it would look quite elegant. Something to contemplate.

The discussion trailed off, i never received an invoice, never received a confirmation of an order, yet the other day I get an email stating my shoe is ready. In whiskey... not cognac. Efffffffffffff
i will give Vass some credit for being timely. In our discussions back in May, Mr. Kuti said beginning of October they would be ready (if I decided to order)

Congrats - I think! :^)

I'm not really sure if Vass does a Cognac Shell so they may have considered Whiskey the closest thing. I wonder if a bit of mahogany polish would make it more to your liking. Before doing so I would just do some research on the effects of darker color polishes on lighter shell colors. Regardless, I would first see how the shoes look either in person or via photographs.

The typical Vass Norweger style is really great and unique. I'm tempted to order another pair. Just not yet though - so says my wallet!

They sound great Namor.

 

In my experience Vass gets an order exactly right  about 50% of the time.  

Major F... Ups about 30% of the time, inc. wrong color +   style-  but they've never got the size wrong.  

 

All part of the charm and excitement. rolleyes.gif

 

I'm actually glad they messed up one of my orders -  I know I wouldn't have worn my original design had i received it!

Anhony Delos sells out to Berluti (LVMH)!
Anthony Delos has sold his firm to LVMH (owners of Berluti). His workshop will be owned by LVMH and Anthony and his staff will be only employees. It is a sad news that someone so talented like Antony Delos is forced to come under the umbrella of LVMH. In the future it is possible to see an Antony Delos RTW. Delos has been self-employed since 2004 and has built a strong reputation.

Delos was covered in other threads couple months ago and not related to Vass.  Sad news for us shoe lovers.

do you think there might be a language barrier causing these miscommunications? i mean, i understand if too many details can become overwhelming but everything is in email for easy reference. its especially frustrating when you you agree on something but get a surprise out of left field. thank goodness they were made in shell. whewww

definitely-  transcription errors-    even with  specs in a bolded list 

 

 

u could check with Gdl but i don't know that the color in that pic of  his U Norwegers is accurate.  I've seen other pics where they look much darker.

true whiskey shell is only available by supplying - usually through a proxy like kolecho.

whiskey shell is not something they ordinarily stock

Oh god, been obsessing over this thread for days.

Desperate for some F last oxblood oxfords.

Do I dare roll the dice on sizing?


Is there anyone who is a 7.5 C&J348 and 8UK normally who has got a successful fit in the new F last?
post #4469 of 12335
received a few pics from Vass. they look more brown than anticipated but thats perfect for me.

I don't think there's a last that their Norwegers don't look good on.

And it's a great color. I have a pair in Antik Cognac calf, and it's roughly the same if a little less exotic.
