For new customers from the US, you'll need to approach one of Vass preferred retailers (Ascot Shoes & NMWA).

Ahh, thanks, I wasn't aware of that since I'm in Australia. :)

The quality control of JL is immensely insane. Irrespective of how many pairs they make and
The goodyear welted method - their motto was once "the bare maximum for a man"
JL still stand by that when it comes to aesthetics and finishing!
Backed by Hermes, they have control (if not total) of their tannery and select the
Finest calf, and reject the majority!

From whole-cuts Chapel to Oxford City II models, you will not notice any blemishes/stretches with
the naked eye in any section of the shoes,

If I have to complain one thing about City II, it is that some museum calf shoes have the museum finishing so conspicuous that the shoes look less formal. Other shoes have more subtle museum finishing, which IMO are more formal.

...
It's like buying leopard print jacket and saying it's not formal enough.

Still have not heard from Nick on my purchase, starting to get a little scary. Anyone else?
