    I can confirm that Vass will build shell cordovan high boots for us in this group buy.

    PM sent to those with shell high boots in their orders.




    @nosrep123 Vass Italian lasts usually accommodates the high instep quite well. I have high instep feet and my F-last oxford shoes fit nicely without much of a gap in the 'V' of the throat.

    @arahat

    Is goyser stitching possible with a double tapering to single leather sole? If so please modify my two orders to have this. Currently they are listed as double leather sole. No problem if it's not possible, at least I'll know. Thanks.

    I'm in for a whiskey or antic cognac shell either plain toe or moc toe High boot. I'm still doing some research on last and size.[​IMG]
    Similar to these. Im guessing this is the Osloer last? Danite sole and at least 2 speed hooks.

    Did you have to size up, and if so, did you size up because of the width in the toe?

    @arahat

    You have me on the list for an austerity brogue and a brogued wingtip because I couldn't decide. Well I'm going with the brogued wingtip. Could you remove the austerity brogue? Can you also update my order as per below? I'm either going with dark brown calf or antique cognac shell so if you can give me a price quote for both that would be great.

    wingtip brogue oxford, size 43.5, F-last, dark brown calf or antique cognac shell, seamless heel counter.

    @velgador0 Changed and added. cheers.


    @spectr3 Shouldn't be a problem. Changed. cheers.


    @Raleightimes Added Osloer high boots order. There is no Osloer last however. I have added the P2-last as a placeholder for pricing. Cheers.


    @Odd I/O Updated. Cheers.





    No I did not have to upsize in my F-last. Unless you have very narrow feet I don't think most people need to.




    @Robstrongo Added. Cheers.


    @j3r0m3 Added. Cheers.

    It should not be understated what an amazing effort @arahat is undetaking with his group buys. Basically doing all the proxy work involved, at a discount to everyone involved.

    Even though I am no longer participating, I would like to sincerely thank him for his efforts :fistbump:

    Thank you guys. I am confident the group buy will turn out nicely.



    @hentaisan and @63AMG, I've added and/or changed your orders.

    If you have contacted me by now, rest assured your order has been added or changed.
    I have just sent the list to Vass for pricing. It should take around a week or 2.


    If you are still interested but did not make this pricing deadline, as long as you can confirm your order and settle payment by mid-late June 2014, we are happy to accept new additions.
    Have a good weekend everyone.
