   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

Incredible boots. I might need a pair of these and one EG Nevis for my NST fix. Maybe the Carmina in navy shell.

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.

After looking at the Carmina thread - thought I might check out the GMTOs here. Nothing happening here?

Do you have any ideas for GMTO? I might be interested in 5 eyelet chukka.

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.

^^^ I have yet to order directly through Vass, but the majority of my purchases have been through European resellers and US dealers. Pricing can be a bit varied, but the single MTO price has never seemed to be that much higher than the standard stock price. If you have a particlar makeup in mind, contact Epaulet for a quote (I understand Vass does not ship directly to individual US customers any longer).

Thanks for the info! I think there used to be someone on SF that had a proxy service for Vass MTOs, I can try and look him up as well.

Vass has been pretty quick lately...a year wait doesn't make much sense
