The Ultimate Vass Porn Thread - Page 396

post #5926 of 11809
Regarding the issue with the same questions over and over again, on my blog I have a buyers guide which answers most of the regular questions, sort out Vass width options, has last-comparison pics taken by Rezso and much more. It's written in Swedish though, but there's a translation tool on the blog which makes it readable in most languages: http://shoegazingpunktse.blogspot.se/2012/10/kopguide-vass-shoes.html

Well, however you would characterize labelling someone as ignorant and lazy for asking a simple question when they are obviously new to the forum.

 

You seem to quite willing to summon the effort to denou... well, whatever it is you call all of this ranting - yet deeply resentful of the minimal effort it would have taken to simply answer the question.

 

No doubt you have much more to say on the subject.  I do not.  I look forward to some more Vass porn.

Umm, by "be-spoke", does that mean the MTO prices or is that really bespoke? In their catalog, it does suggest they have bespoke...I mean...if that's the case, only 170 euro up charge from RTW to bespoke?

Quite right -- if searching for 'vass shoe prices' is too difficult for the lazy ignorant poster to do, when it's clear it isn't, then I think the poster is lazy to do the search and ignorant because he doesn't know better than to do that. See, I substantiate what I write.

Being new to a forum doesn't preclude a person from doing a simple search. If he's new to the Internet and can't do a simple search, different story. If he manages to find the Vass thread on Styleforum, I don't see any sound rationale for why a guy new to the forum can't search with Google, or go back a couple of pages.

And like I said, why repeat and repeat and indulge the ignorant and lazy posters page after page after page.

I am aware that this thread is 400 pages long and I don't expect him to go through all 400 (that might be unreasonable), but there's no excuse when searching 'Vass price list' using Google, gives you the pricelist within the top 5 hits, and the price is done twice within 10 pages.

I think they modify an existing last for you if you fly there.

Bear in mind that all of Vass shoes if you order from them, are MTO at no extra charge.  As long as you're using their last, an existing leather option and a style they offer, it's up to you.  And that's the basic price.  It's one of the things that I think makes them so awesome.

 

But as BBDC said, as I understand it, their "bespoke" services is actually what others would call "semi-bespoke": they don't make a last for you, rather they find the last that is closest to your fit and make some adjustments.  Of course this might still be perfect in the end, but the work involved is not quite the same.  To be fair, I don't know this for a fact, but I think it was hinted at earlier in this thread.

Gotcha, thanks. As for cordovan colors, I only see these 3:



However, I have certainly see a variety of other colors throughout the thread.

For example:

As there's a limited availability at any time from Horween, I guess the answer is to ask what Vass have or can get at any one time.

I'm a very happy camper.
Hi, may I know what last these monks are on? Also do you have any pics of them from a top angle? Thanks
post #5935 of 11809

The are on the K last.  Closest thing I have to a top angle shot is the group pic I posted earlier:

 

 

Cheers,

 

Roger

 

PS - the black shoes are F last and the tri-colour U last if that helps at all.

This is a nice blog J Ing. 

 

Very informative and wished I stumbled upon this blog before. I recognized a couple of photos from other sites, where they compare the U; K & F last.

Very handy, as the 3 last is probably Vass best seller (outside Hungary).

 

Anyway...lets get back to the subject of more Vass porn.... This pricing shenanigan getting too messy for my liking.

There are many newbies asking valid questions on pricing - it varies on what search domain you use. Some are 

directed to proxies and some to more advertising website. Tom one liner put this subject to bed.
