Vass x Jeeves Mahogany English Grain Byron Boot GMTO - Until October 15 - Page 2

post #16 of 27

@Notch

Could I check if this English grain is the same one that G&G uses? 

By the way, thanks for the explanation and nice pictures regarding the Goyser construction you posted on the Vass thread some time back. Forgot to thank you for it.

@ThunderMarch: I do believe it is the same type of leather, both called 'English Grain'. We source our leather (some of it of course) from a UK merchant, where many bespoke and RTW shoemakers source theirs. We first enquired about the leather nearly 8 months ago, and ordered about 4 months ago. Inbetween that time, I can remember the sales manager mentioning there has been a slight, but permanent change in that particular color. So essentially it's the same leather, but most probably a slightly different shade!

No problem regarding the explanation. We have a whole array of pictures about the production at Vass, but we don't know yet what to do with them. Putting them all up on the site will slow it down too much, so perhaps a Pinterest albums of some sorts. We are also working on a more detailed blog post featuring the Goiser stitch!

That's great. The texture is amazing. 

I'd like to say that I'm going to keep a close watch on this thread. 

This certainly has my interest.

We now have 4 members that would like to join this GMTO, looking for the final 2 smile.gif!

650USD for a pair of hand welted high boots, on a last that you choose. It won't get any better than that!

Still looking for 2 members!

Perhaps viewing how Vass shoes are made will get you over the line:

I was wondering if I ordered this in the Budapest last would that make the boot much more "casual" as opposed to some of the sleeker lasts? I have an F last now and love it, but wanted something even more akin to a country boot if you will..
