I know it's kind of silly, but one of the things I really liked about the Vass shoes that I finally saw in person was the shoe tree. Never seen a three-piece shoe tree like that, really wonderful.

The Vass shoe tree is a shoe tree that really means business.  I love my Vass Budapest shoes.  What a perfect fit.

For a brief second I was fooled into thinking they were your Perry Westons. What color is this?

Norcal: I really love those Lobb's. If you don't mind my asking, which model are they and where can I get a pair?

I've never seen anything like the Vass trees. Lobb St. James has some pretty extravagant trees, but their three-piece trees cost nearly £400. And the Budapests are wonderful, too.

Well, the design is somewhat similar, but the Westons have a split toe and the odd welt treatment and lack the skin-stitching of the Vass shoes. Vass calls the color cognac. A Harris told me that it's between Edward Green's Acorn Antique and Edwardian Antique, and that's probably about right (only without the antiqueing).

Are those Lattanzis, and are those spare heels on top of the box? Pardon my French, but WTF?

Yes indeed, Silvano's (my friends) and the extra heels are included with the pair, apparently.

Antonio Maurizi--where can you get 'em? Rob

Hello everybody, Remember my posting on Grenson shoes a year ago?  They have aged pretty well, here are the pictures: Comparing stitching on Green (Brampton, 202) and Lobb (Tokyo): These two Grensons were purchased at the same time, though I wear the Stowe more often, thus the leather looks a little different now (less apparent in photo): Here are the Stowe a year ago: Comparing StefanoBi and Antonio Maurizi: Naturlaut

Wow, gorgeous. There wasn't a single pair that I didn't absolutely love.

The Stowes seem to have a redness to them I don't see in the original. What polish have you used on them? Thanks for posting the before and after pics.

It could just be the lighting, but I noticed a deeper red tone as well.

By the way, I especially like the monk strap/double monk strap on the last two black shoes pictured, as well as the monk strap on the brown Grenson's.  The black Lobb slip-on is also great. What is the rule for monk straps vs. lace-ups?  For some reason I like monk straps a lot better.  For one, you see them less than lace-up shoes and I think it adds a touch of individuality and unique-ness.  I would assume they are not as formal as lace-ups, but are they as casual as slip-on loafers?
