    Thank you Hampton. It is OK for people to agree to disagree.

    I'm sure Vass can do pretty much anything if asked. I would note that the vass in the photo has two major differences from the G&G in terms of the pattern. The straps on the G&G are close together and absolutely parallel, and you will notice that there is a continuous band of contrasting leather around the throat.

    Why have Vass copy something from somebody else? Why not have the maker who designed it do it? It's the right thing to do, no?

    I agree. I like both designs, but let the original designer do it for you. That way you know you have the genuine design done right.

    Can't exactly get handwelted shoes from G&G unless going bespoke.

    You are right here. G&G does not offer welting on their RTW or MTO. Good point.

    I'm in the process of working with Nick on some shoes and he gave me the option do something called "storm welting" on my MTO from G&G.
