burgandy Vass belt for sale (Boots sold)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Burgandy belt by Vass, 1 & 1/8 inch wide, size 33. Price = $80, including a Vass bag and shipping in the continental US. The belt is labeled 34, but is really 33, which is why I'm selling it (here w/ a black belt I've already sold): It'll come with the small bag: Boots are SOLD! Thanks SF! Am leaving the pics up in case anyone's interested in seeing them:

Black belt is sold! Thanks! Btw, the buyer thought the logo on one of the belts had been worn. It's not worn. It's just that after it was stamped it wasn't inked well. A quirk of hand made goods I guess. The same is true of the soles of the boots. Their stamps aren't very strong, in depth or inking. When I received them it made me wonder if they'd been worn and then polished, but the heels, etc. were obviously new, and a search of several Vass threads showed me that different shoes had different levels of clarity in the logos.

is it sizing issue or just changed mind?

yes i have. a few more than couple of times. mine are due to these issues: sizing issue, aesthetic didnt work: color, some cut, not depicted well in advertisement, etc, changed mind (later down the road, i found out it wouldnt work in my wardrobe, or just got bored of it)

so if that is the case that is fine and im sure that is for emptym.

The F is a very nice last, and I'm told Vass isn't willing to make high boots out of shell cordovan anymore.

To be completely honest, there are a few reasons. One of which is that I actually ordered a chukka. The other is that the size may be a bit large, at least with the thinnish socks I wear daily. They fit snugly with thickish socks, like light hiking ones. So it may be that the fit is just right. My feet are a little strange though,... as supposedly all our feet are. On a Brannock device, mine measure about 10.25 C-D left and 9.75 D-E right. So ideally, one would get custom shoes. Which leads me to the deciding factor: meeting DWFII last weekend and ordering a high chukka/George boot that he posted a few months ago. It's exactly what I've been wanting for several years, namely a low boot that would easy on/off and protect my ankles from the rain and my ankle bones in a fall. It would be perfect for motorcycle or bicycle commutes. Chukkas are a little too low = not enough protection. Balmoral and derby boots are a little too high = too restrictive on the bicycle and more time on/off (I'm usually running a little late...). I thought of getting chelseas, but decided the elastic sides wouldn't protect my ankles enough. Jodhpers were an option, but I'm told they aren't great for walking. Sanders makes a beautiful George boot, but I wasn't convinced about the quality. So I decided to meet w/ DWF. I enjoyed our meeting tremendously and am looking forward to the George boot from him. That said, part of me wants to keep the Vass boots. They are really gorgeous, and of all the shoes I showed DW, he was most impressed by the Vass due to the fineness of their stitching, the hand-welting (non-gemming) and deerskin lining (he thought). But I figured I'd offer them up here. Thanks for the Q, Shoe! Btw, I didn't have it in my OP, but the boots come with F-lasted Vass trees in 43.
