Or Oliver Moore - I've found brief mentions of this shop and Vogel but nobody seems to have any first-hand experience with either.
I've been very curious about Oliver Moore, too. Those antique tan scotch grain wingtips from Oliver Moore in the Vass book are truly stunning.
Curious what do the shoe experts think of the construction of the Vogel shoes (if anyone has seen any first-hand)? They seem almost "too inexpensive" for true custom, at least as compared to Ercolino, Vincent & Edgar, EGreen, etc..
Aside from the blurb in the Vass book and the Vogel website, the only material that I've ever seen about Vogel was in an article in GQ a few years ago. They sent a number of writers to get different peices of custom-made clothes, and the guy responsible for shoes went to Vogel. The article was very complimentary, but the shoes didn't do much for me. Of course, that could be the fault of the author as much as Vogel. For the price, I'd be willing to bet that Vogel shoes are machine-made on modified stock lasts. They still might be great shoes, I don't know; but I'd be floored if they were in the same category as the handmade bespoke cordwainers. I haven't actually ever seen a pair, so this is all just speculation.
