Measurements? Bespoke? Do none of the lasts fit you?

IMHO, Go for bespoke if you can.
It is a very different shoe when its made for you. RTW and MTO are made based on average measurements and fit.
So, If you can swing it, opt for bespoke, if not MTO is a close second.

gyasih, is that the dark brown calf? Anyone have real-life pics of antique cognac vs. dark cognac vs. dark brown?

The F last fits me nicely but I have always wanted to try bespoke and I was told Vass is quite reasonably priced. Also found out the shop is like 10 mins away from where I am staying so that would be great.

kashiwa, if you're looking for the most authentic, true Norwegians, you will have to buy them from Norway. Aurlandskoen still makes them, I don't know about the quality, though. Their models have strong, beefy rolls.

Hi everybody!

I visited the Vass shop last Wednesday, let me talk you about my experience.

I had an appointment with the sales manager, he told me Lazslo Vass would also be there but unfortunately he had to go to a museum opening (of his own art, he has a massive collection I'm told). His daugther was there however and was very friendly also! In total there were about 4/5 salespeople and lots of people going in and out of the store.

I brought a box of chocolates since I'm from Belgium, and the sales manager and Eva Vass both were extremely friendly (not because of the chocolates, it was not my first visit and they're always friendly). I got a drink and we talke almost 2 hours about nothing but shoes, and how Mr. Vass sees the future of its company. My feet got measured on a previous visit, but I still have not decided which shoes I like the best for my akward (very wide) feet. I think I will go with a custom made F or 3636 last.

Vass is a very growing company with lots of potential, they want to employ more craftsmen but therefore they first have to create more demand the sales manager told me.

I got asked by a Styleforum member to take pictures of boots, which I did. I also took a picture of their belts, they have two types of belts (narrow belts, 2,8cm in width, for formal wear, and wider belts, 4cm in width, to wear with a more casual outfit such as jeans or chinos).

Anyways, enjoy the pictures! I'm sorry I could not get any more, but as I said, I talked with the sales manager for 2 hours and nearly missed my plain back!

Thanks Tom. Sounds as if you had a great visit. Thanks for the snaps of the boots. The double monk boot and tall Norweger are interesting.

Forgot to mention that they are also experimenting with new colors, such as green and red suede...

Also, for anyone going to Budapest, I can recommend the Corinthia hotel, top notch hotel!!

Wow... I'm sure my dream tonight will be swimming in a pool of Vass shoes....
