Although surely Vass is completely capable of equalling Saint C in everyway, including finishing, if asked, no?

That is the consensus -but just looking at St Cs they have a vibe/quirkiness to them that shrieks hand made (aka I love my job) and Vass always look perfect - like fully machine made. Just mis dos centavos.

I'm a mid-level shoe guy but when I compared the Saint Crispins next to the John Lobbs at LSBH there was a huge difference in favor of the Saint Crispins

I think your judgement is right, and I think Vass is able to match that if asked nicely...
