Don't they have plenty of alternatives already?  I quite like the U last.  And the K - which is even more chiseled. But apart from those two, I can't think of much else that's particularly chiseled in Vass lineup.

Cheers.  I got lucky with the lighting, which I initially thought was insufficient.  Much brighter light would have washed out the subtle details that make this type of leather so beautiful.

I think I get where Namor is going: they have either the R, which is a shallow, elongated round toe in the English style, or the U/K which are chiseled but in a very dramatic Italian style.  Maybe there is room in between for a more Anglicised squared toe that doesn't have the hard, look-at-me lines of the U or K.  But I guess not all shoemakers can be all things to all men.  And Vass might be near enough. :)

^^^ Ah - yes - I think I misunderstood the comment.  I have to say I don't find the U to be all that aggressive, aesthetically or in terms of fit (and my feet are on the wide side).  The K I would describe as a dramatic taper.

 

But I would certainly have no objection to something milder for those that want it.  And you're right of course - however many lasts are offered, someone will wish for something else.

Black shell cordovan boots on K last. I just wanted the boots to be simple.

So, what do TG73 people wear in U last?  Any input will be appreciated. Thanks.

Since I took this picture a while back...I can answer the following

In US, I wear US 12D (11.5E UK) for the TG73 and find it roomy and comfortable and wear the U last in euro size 46 (but it is narrower than the TG73)

Yes NAMOR, the Vass is in the middle. G&G on the left and Clifford Roberts on the right. But I like Vass' V shaped design better as it is less pronounced than the others

Don't think any of my Lobb museum calf up to scratch....Lobbs machine welted single sole no match for the Vass hand welted
Piece.

Vass uses machine to stitch outsole to the welt.

Edit: hand sewn outsole

Aren't Vass meant to be hand-welted?

Two different things. Vass is hand welted. But the outside looks to be machine stitched onto the welt. Same with saint crispins.

God damn those look feminine. No offense, but they are not very flattering, especially with the pant legs pulled up like that.

I'm certain that Vass makes everything by hand, also the sole stitching (unlike Saint Crispin's). When you make the stitch pattern (can't remember the English word for it ATM) on the upper side of the welt it's not that hard to make the sole stich look very neat and almost machine like on the upper side. If Vass wouldn't use channeled soles we would see the uneven, hand sewn stitches there. And as mentioned before Vass have had problems making Dainite soles now, as Mr. Vass didn't think that their hand stitching went well with the soles. If they had machines for this, it would be no problem.

Lol! None taken. I actually tried it on the first time last night. I was wearing my pjs and decided to pull them up so it would't show.
