What would you expect from a British manufacturer...with the high cost of labour in the UK and diminishing

number of semi & skilled people entering the trade, corners are bound to be cut - and to keep up with the

the high demand in their RTW range, it's all down to economics.

 

Look at Anthony Cleverleys Semi-bespoke range - for £795 to £995 you expect them to be made onsite. 

But no, when I found out who makes them I placed more value on the manufacturers own brand at a fracton

of the cost.

Same with F&S RTW. All about cost cutting on the unseen components to increase margins, decrease production time, and decrease the reliance on skilled labors.

I just hope G&G bespoke can stay at similar quality or even improve aesthetically away from those gaudy designs in their RTW range.

Rikod,

 

No offence taken on my side - it's an open forum to express one opinion with insight and fantastic pictures of the Vass shoes.

Simply different strokes for different folks....I'll continue adding value to this great forum and Vass thread by adding more of my Vass collection

for ALL to see and comment on. Many potential newbies are apprehensive posting their pictures if we were to be critical or direct with our views...I for sure will embrace them for posting.

^ I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every makeup you've posted. Their both unique and well thought out. Not to mention, a pleasant contribution to an otherwise tired thread of very traditional viewpoints

I have many EG 202 in size 10E = My Vass on U & F are 44 - I don't like the P2, but P2 on 43.5 fits me fine.

Some of your C&J last are the wide country style which I have never owned.

Thanks mate. However, I am still not sure which one will fit me better? 39, 39.5, or 40? Guys, I need more of your suggestions, especially from small-footed gents.

I wear UK 6E in EG 202 last, US 6.5 B/D in Alden Hampton & Leydon lasts, US 6.5D in AE, UK 5.5-6E in C&J 325 last, US 6.5D in BB/C&J 240 last, US 7D in BB/C&J 317 last. My feet have relatively high arches.

What size should I get for VASS U, F, & P2 last?


I think your size is half size bigger than mine.  I wear UK 5.5E GG MH71.  5.5E or D EG888.    US6 for Alden Plaza, Averdeen.  I have high instep.  I can wear UK6 EG82 with half insole.

I got Vass OE2.( F last) of  UK5.5 (EUR39.5?).  It turned out to be too big.   I feel it is one full size bigger.  I am inquiring if this pair is really UK5.5 size they usually produce and not a one-off mistake by any chance.

What's the difference between storm welt and just the regular way the welt is made? I don't know if i make sense. I want to get a pair of Austerity Boots made, but unsure about this feature. And Vass does have Dainite, correct?

I originally asked for Dainite back in 2012 - but they only had the chunkier Italian Vibram sole which was more suited for rock climbing.

 

If you wanted other sole you had to provide them the material...But I do know Dainite is not available as of Jan this year.

Some of my my new orders will be in Dainite...so nice to know the Vass boots will have a British Foundation. As Dainite a British

trademark.

A touch darker from the pictures. Not sure what to call it? Very light brown maybe?

Actually it's still Vibram soles, just their copy of the Dainite-sole. Looks almost identical, but it often has rugged sides where the sole meets the welt. That's the only difference though, they are just as good.

This month John Lobb just taken delivery of a £50K laser machine to do their pattern cutting. Imagine the sheer number of redundancies of independent cutters around the Northampton area once the the machine in full force. You will soon notice the leather cut to your Chapels/Phillips are alot sharper and straighter than handheld knives.  It makes sense as cost everywhere rising.
