glad top hear you are getting Vass shoes. They look beautiful indeed.
do you know if they have a good wide last? I have heard they do and would be very interested.
many of us here have wide feet and domestically it seems like Alden's Modified Last is the best/only option for us. Another option (and from Vass!) would likely be very very popular.
For reference here is a 60+ page thread on Alden's Modified Last and an attempt to get Moulded Shoes to make a special order for a Modified Last boot.
Could be a profitable niche market? hint hint....
Personally, I think the Carmina double monks look much better. I prefer the rounder toe and the goyser stitch just looks out of place on the double monks -- like a child was learning to make the shoe and is still learning. I don't know if I would like the goyser stitch on a more hefty shoe -- like a longwing -- but a double monk is a plain, sleek style of shoe. Of course, this is all taste on which reasonable minds can differ. This mind, reasonable or not, knows what it prefers in this regard.
