Which Vass for casual wear?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok, gonna try a different tack this time w/ poal, as initial attempt to solicit opinion died a swift and silent death. Basically I'm looking to have a pair of Vass made up for casual pairing w/ denim, non-office pants, etc, and need to decide fairly soon as Vassmeister LC is getting set to put an order in.

A few illustrations to suggest what I have in mind (photos courtesy of William, aportnoy, edmorel):

1) Chukka, P2 last, cognac scotchgrain, double sole, goyser stitching fore of heel.




2) Cognac calf single strap monk, F last rather than U, with added medallion:



3) Same as above, but in cognac scotchgrain...
Here is a notion of what this might look like (cognac scotchgrain on F last w/ medallion), albeit in a different format (center, Theresianer high boot):

4) Medium brown suede monkstrap, F last.

5) Same as above w/ medallion.

6) Dark brown suede monkstrap, F last.

7) Same as above, w/ medallion.

8 Medium brown suede chukka, F last.

9) Dark brown suede chukka, F last (rather than U as pictured, which does not fit me well):



10) Alternate suggestion (obviously, I'd prefer chukka or monk).


Unless otherwise specified , I am assuming the somewhat voguish HAF sole arrangement (the one pair of Vass I have has it, and it suits me fine, though admittedly it can look somewhat "clublike" in some photos).

For non-office pants I would go with William's chukka, number 1.

Isn't the suede chukka the default SF answer to this question regardless of maker?

Are you merely submitting to the awesome power of SF Groupthink â„¢, or is this truly your best and final answer?

More idea pics added; anyone else care to weigh in?

Ride the chukka in suede or brown leather.

I tend to not wear my $1,000 shoes as casual, but if I could, I would go with suede.

Actually, this is my best and final answer. A good example of a dark brown suede chukka is next on my shoe-queue list.
