    Thats a great jacket. I hate that most cardigans hug in the wrong areas and make guys look chubbier than they are. This one seems to not do it as bad as most that I have seen

    Thanks dudes! I think the photo would be a bit more flattering if I had been able to get the camera higher. I can assure that the pub jackets does not create a chubby look. The way it hangs and its shape and proportions create a slim profile. The roll of the collar is phenomenal. I got great use from it this summer. I also have the brown wool one, which I like even more.

    Mr six, what size is it? M or L?
    Also, this isn't currently offered by NMWA, right? Can it be ordered MTO?

    Not to rain on the NMWA parade, but buying direct from Vass was much less expensive than buying through NMWA. Though US customers no longer have that privledge..

    Thanks for your contribution to this thread

    Define "much less expensive" while at the same time not conveniently forgetting to factor in trees, wire fees, shipping and customs duties. Because everything is of course less expensive when one breaks the law and cheats on taxes and duties.

    We also do not charge extra for Italian lasts, Italian polish or taps.

    I was quoted 440 euro for museum calf m to on u last with trees by rezso last year. Unless duties and shipping are around 250 dollars to the United states, that's much less expensive.

    I will say using your store as a vendor takes most of the hassle of ordering from vass away.

    With the SF10 discount, the difference in much less than that ($165 USD) If you count a $50 shipping and a 10% duty to be prudent, that puts it at about a $65 difference. Does rezso also offer you free return back to Euro and a shipping back to the US if you happen to pick a wrong size?

    Also, are you the kind that walks into a boutique and tell them you can buy them for much cheaper buying from the manufacturing store in Italy and therefore they have to give you a steep discount?

    Does gdl offer returns on MTO?

    My remark was just a challenge to stitches' comment. Lol at discounts, I'll take it if that offer it, but vass lasts dont fit my feet.

    Please feel free proceed with a direct order and add up all the costs between shoe prices, any extras, shipping costs, wire transfer and other bank fees, customs duties and Fedex customs clearance fees - and please let us know the total cost is to you at the end. Then, think about the extra costs if there happens to be an issue with your order (not made to your specs). If you frequent the Vass thread, I'm sure you know that this happens with some frequency. When it happens with our orders, we inspect the shoes and ship them back to Vass at out cost, request a fixed or new pair, pay shipping and duties on those too - and our customer never even knows there was anything wrong with his order.

    We have a different business model - we factor in ALL the costs into one price for our customer and there's no hassle or surprises involved. Some prefer to jump through hoops to save $50 on a pair of high end shoes (or lose $ if they ever need to exchange them). Others like to work with us instead, get the shoes they ordered delivered hassle-free to them, at a clear price. You're free to do the former, but it's misinformation (not to mention poor taste) to jump in like you did in the thread that we host.

    I've alluded to that the upcharhe is worth it to the non ten-cent millionaires first dipping their foot in vass.

    Will disagree that the remark was misinformation or in poor taste. Consumers should post their honest thoughts and opinions be it about prices or quality of a product, and vendors should take that as an opportunity to respond, show their side, and be receptive to feedback if need be. If the vendor responds in an effective way, then that's good,for business. Take that as you may.
