VASS and Epaulet MTO & Group Buy Thread - Page 16
yes, they're oxblood. was channeling my inner Roger P when I chose the color
Thanks @SoGent!!! I tried posting this a few damn ago but damn SF hasn't allowed me too.
I love the just juxtaposition of the u last with that beefy stitching. Looking forward to fit pics
thanks namor it was a little bit of a struggle for them to turn out right, this was the 3rd build of the boot as
that style is normally built on the F last but I like the result on the U a lot.
now that I have them, I wonder if goyser welt stitching would be too much on that boot
I do think Goyser would take away from the sleekness that seems to be the point of the last. It's super sharp. Reminds me of hunting boots or something a Dracula killer would wear.
Thanks for the inspiration my man. And congrats.
No creativity from me at this current time but interestingly a chukka is something on my list. Funds willing. Although I will admit I'm partial to suede when it comes to chukkas but could go either way depending on the illustration/mock up.
Unlike Carmina, Vass doesn't charge an absurd premium for a single MTO. As a result, there is less of an impetus to pursue a GMTO, because they will sell you the shoe you want in the last you want in the materials you want without raping your wallet for the privilege.
What is then average cost of a single MTO with Vass? I'm still waiting on the Epaulet GMTO museum calf double monks to arrive (going on almost a year now at this point), but if they fit well I'd probably be interested in getting something else done through Vass.
