Not necessarily.

There are retailer who keep St Crispin in stock. Which of course means, they are the models and sizes/widths that particular retailer has ordered. Diehl & Diehl in Frankfurt keeps quite a big selection, so does (I believe, never been there) Ladage & Oelke in Hamburg or Sir Max in Amsterdam. (I will be in A. at the of the month, so I"˜ll check it out.)

Andrew, these are way hott and beautiful boots.

but my concern for me is, the arch area is high. for me that is disaster, because with U last, same concept, the arch is too high.

looks beautiful , but when worn , my low arched feet creates space around my ankles due to the extra leather up there collapsing around my low arch

I think the spectators are really cool. The black is a little to much of a mix for me to feel comfortable wearing. Are the wovens considered one step more formal than the punched shoes? I have always hated the style, but had never seen nice ones before. The woven with a solid cap in dark brown that Vass shows is very nice.

They are both informal. But, yes the wovens are one step ahead. I like the Vass model, too.

They have pinched the idea for those punched leather ones off the Mapvintage ebay site methinks and the mesh ones are similar to a pair of UK John Whites mesh specs from the 1940s that were on the Bay earlier this year that someone found in Malta.

And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

I hold my manhood cheap for not owning a pair of those ridiculously gorgeous boots.

The man on the picture looks like my grandfather, who was a cobbler in Rhegin/Siebenbuergen/Romania until WWII. Any help in research would be appreciated. His name was Ernst Wermescher

I don't like these punched plain shoes, it is too much, I think, but I really like the pair of shoes that meister posted, because it's not that visible:

Iammatt:

To which pair of woven Vass shoes do you refer?

I'd like this pair in a darker brown, I think:
