    I think the P2 is definitely more versatile. The U is dressy in my opinion. I went with bordeaux.

    Ha! That was my original intention, but we just ended up going with Alt Wien as I mentioned on the Shell Cordovan thread.

    well the issue is Vass speak has no name la!! so better to give something a name otherwise it will be just "that shoe that luk-cha posted" then pooor old kolecho will be like "er which shoooooooooo" no what i mean ;-) ?

    yeah thx but I have ordered 'Weymouths' before and this is what Vass did ..[​IMG]
    those others are some kind of Adelaide with a long U cap, altho they are IMO closer to the actual EG shoe.
