Does Vass acquire their museum leather from the same source as John Lobb? This new Walnut Museum looks spectacular, though I remember John Lobb had them for the past 10 years.

No, but from the same place that Lobb got them from in the beginning. Most of Vass' museum calf nowadays is from the Italian tannery Ilcea (for example Walnut), some still from Zonta and Haas I believe. John Lobb Paris used the Ilcea leather (it's called Ilcea Radica, just everyone says museum about this type of leather now because of Lobb) from the beginning but when they started to get into some troubles Lobb swithed to the French tannery Haas for their Museum calf (and Misty) some year's back. Ilcea went bankrupt like two years ago or something like that, but the tannery group Vecchia Toscana both up the bankruptcy estate and have got Ilcea back on its feet again.
