Modern payment options are a must. Don't mind paying the fee for PayPal or cc . Also would like choice of shipping. I have used a proxy because he uses mail and I don't have to pay FedEx costs (shipping itself, duty, sales tax plus brokerage fee) which can add $200 to get my shoes to Canada. I would buy proportionately more shoes if I could get Vass at retail.

For styling, lasts are fine (I like F personally) but something between F and U might tempt me. Would like to see them add a snuff suede color. Also I don't like the chukka style so maybe an expanded range of boots.

Then you send a transfer and receive your shoes, I really don't understand what is the problem with that, you can set up a wire transfer from any bank account.

Lol...

Razor uses fedex and he will value the shoes so you pay no duty...just ask.

The good thing about Vass is that they are totally flexible with make-ups. You can send them a bunch of pictures and they will make the design to the best of their abilities. And they don't charge MTO surcharge. We don't need a costly retailer with a singleminded focus on profit margins to come into the picture and screw it up for us. You just pick up the phone and telephone Razor and run your make-up by him. He will tell you if they can or can't do it. If it's weird or will look awful he'll tell you that as well. In short, who needs Le-who and epaulet when we've got Razor.

 

(PS. Ive been following the Carmina prices on the epaulet thread and they are just outrageous....but good for them.)

Vass is fine where they are. They just need better sales operations as suggested by proxies that monetize Vass' direct sales inefficiencies.

They don't need more lasts. They don't need more styles. Pointless to convert or a top notch hand crafting company into a much lesser RTW operation like EG or G&G. Vass needs to stay Vass and not another EG offspring like G&G or a G&G offspring like AS Handgrade.

p.s., screw Epaulet and Leffot.

Does anyone know the prices for Vass belts? 

post #5768 of 12890

If I remember correctly the belts were 80 or 90 Euros when I was in their shop last summer

So true, there is so much misinformation about the process.

And yes, Kuti? will tell you if something is possible or how great or awful the final result will be.

Sometimes Razor rays "Mr. Vass don't like to do.... but for you we will make."

 

Just imagine those frosty EG guys saying that.

They probably say "EG don´t do this, we do the shoe like we want...and it will cost extra" smile.gif

Thanks - I will try for my next order
post #5773 of 12890

Think I was oringally quoted €95 over the phone.

 

Then they reduced down to €50 - as I order 2 pairs of MTO ;-)

 

Time to Market & Communication is key for Vass - then again Cleverleys and EG

can take upto 6-8 months to make a bloody pair of MTO.

post #5774 of 12890

+1

 

Totally agree - I just ordered 2 pairs of MTO direct from them.

 

After a few emails to clarify my size, colour; style and sole requirement Razor

was ready to accept my order.  What also helped was my experience with Lobbs

and EG shoes.  I told him my size and last on those makes, an this bought the

margin of error down to possibly 5%.

Not quite....one example: it seems "Mr. Vass don't like to make slipper with cordovan but they will make"...no extra charge. smile.gif
