YO bro solid shoe!

post #20481 of 21771

Hi all, newbie here. I'm consider Vass/G&G as my wedding shoe.

Being a narrow feet 9C, and I would prefer wholecuts for my low instep feet & love the style.

Tried C&J Weymouth and 7E seems sitting on feet well.

 

I'm lost in color choice as I seldom dress up, and assume the wedding suit will be black, dark navy or dark velvet tux.

A note would be I'm very slim - 27" waist and I couldn't manage to boast my size for years. Metabolism issue.

 

I wish to keep the shoe for daily use - while I will be in jeans and tee/polo as being in  IT & video production, no dress up is required.

 

Would you all kindly share your thoughts with me? Cheers!

Congratulations on your upcoming big day! I'm sure you're both thrilled.

 

As to the Vass/G&G decision...I wouldn't put those two brands anywhere close to the same league. You'll have to decide between the two based on fit, budget, and taste. Personally...I would rather wear clearance model square toed slip-on loafers from DSW than wear Vass - but that's just me!

 

I also have a low-instep and slightly narrow foot. I find G&G to be an outstanding fit in practically all of their lasts. My preference is the MH71, but I couldn't complain about any of them and find that they all relatively fit the same.

 

In my opinion I think a navy suit would open the door for you as far as color options are concerned and transition well into your casual attire. Any shade of red or medium/dark brown would look fantastic. Polo suede would look exceptionally dandy and look great casually...but that has to be to your taste. Perhaps even a double-monk if you're felling bold. For a wedding shoe I would recommend an oxford/balmoral as this is suppose to be one of the most formal occasions in your life, but that might not play nicely with your plans for a casual transition. Personally, I wouldn't wear oxfords/balmoral's with jeans...but again, that's just me.

Say what?!? This is gonna take some explaining :D

@galileo Not casual by any means but whenever I get married the plan is to MTO a pair of stingray Sinatras. I think these would look great with any color of tux you choose. :slayer:

You gents making me wonder what other shades of brown can you get Sinatra in biggrin.gif

That really look marvelous. Black & Burgundy looks great while I suspect my cats will be too excited & chew it...

I'm sorry to ruffle feathers Rohit but Vass shoes deeply offend each one of my senses in the most egregious manner possible. For me, their lasts fit poorly and the variance is unpredictable...much like the quality control and customer service. I presume they named themselves 'Vass' after their unprecedentedly vast inconsistencies. They also don't have any real originality or iconic designs. One most notably disrespectful example is ripping off EG's coveted Galway, even coining the name 'Valway'. For me, that's simply put...pathetic.

 

For those reasons alone, I'm out...with extreme prejudice.

split toe (so Anteebee like?) the Ralph Lauren store (not the cheap ones) in Woodbury Common Outlet (Central Valley)

Definitely some valid points. I don't own any Vass though, so no ruffled feathers here. Makes me wonder how you feel about Bonafe... wink.gif

Thanks! For Vass, well, let it be.

 

I would mostly take dark navy suit, as tried black & dark velvet last year for pre-wedding photo with my cat (coz he was heavily sick years old and I don't want to miss the chance for a proper photo with him) and it's urgh... too sharp for me. Plum, vintage rioja, vintage cherry, burgundy, oak caught my eyes.

 

Somewhat will double-monk fits better for jeans?
