Oh, and on a double leather sole.. obviously.

There are none.  But that is the shoe you are looking for.  You can go here: http://www.vass-shoes.com/ and mindsplice things to get you the visual image you need.

I was thinking more of the F last though but Vass when done right is beautiful. Guys in the artisanal thread talk about leather boots all the time but Vass would be equally as cool. I find some semblance between Vass and MMoria if both done in a simple black shoe.

The F and Peter or P2 last are both good, but the Raf derby is clunky and deliberately awkward, and the Budapester is naturally a bit clunky and middle European sensible and clunky.

What about cheaper options than Vass? And is the only way to get the 1033 on a wide last to go MTM from their Canadian retailer?

 

Found some others,

 

Yuketen 1940 Millspec:

 

 

Paraboot Arles:

 

 

APC Gustave:

In my (admittedly) extremely limited sample of 1 pair of black Chelsea boots, I wouldn't recommend apc unless u just wanted beaters and are not concerned abt leather quality/look/feel.

those Yuketens look nice

Anyone handled Wacko Maria stuff? I'm not sure if awful or awesome...

Is this Private White ventile raincoat worth it at 30% off (still around $620)? I'm on team @nicelynice trying to get rid of every trace of non-natural fabrics from my closet. It's made in Manchester, has Riri zippers, etc. but still quite expensive even at 30% off:

 

 

Been eyeing it since someone posted this video in the random fashion thoughts thread (I think) a few weeks back. I like about it the shade of blue/not too deep navy and the fact that it's unlined. I also had a look at this SEH Kelly, also in ventile:

 

 

About the SEH kelly I like that it has buttons instead of a zipper and that it's cheaper but I dislike the fact that it's lined and I prefer the simpler design in the PW. I'd also have to get it in another colour as navy is not available in my size anymore.

^^ I havent handled either, but like the look of the SEH Kelly one more + they seem to be a fantastic brand.

Buy the Kelly!

I did not know there was an all-natural fabrics team. I want to be on that. Though I think I'm keeping my Norwegian Rain coat...

I like the Kelly version above. More interesting to me.
