    The Byron boot GMTO is a go! Thank you to all who have joined, looking forward to the finished boots myself!

    There is still some of the leather left, thinking what we should do with it!

    TL;DR: All Jeeves ties 15% off with coupon code Handmadeties, free shipping within EU!

    Link: http://jeeves.store/ties/

    The workshop where our ties are made is one of the oldest in the world, and is situated in the North of Italy. It is small and difficult to find form the outside, but on the inside artisans work vigorously on some of the best ties in the world. They produce for some of the largest brands in the Italy, France and England, and for Jeeves.

    Jeeves ties are made with the classic 3-fold construction, and are lined with a pure wool/cotton lining. We believe that the classic construction still provides the best result, and find that the pattern and texture of the fabric is what makes a tie stand out, more than an overly complicated construction. Every tie is hand closed with what is called a slip-stitch, a stitch that leaves some extra thread at both sides, to give it more flexibility. This ensures that the tie always hangs straight, and that it returns to its original form when untied.

    Jeeves offers a selection of ties focused around texture. We have ties made from Grenadine silk (an open weave with a beautiful texture), from pure Shetland wool, Irish Poplin, Woven silk and of course the classic printed silk.

    All ties are priced at 95 EUR (incl. 21% VAT). They are delivered in an elegant packaging made form recycled greyboard or fibreboard. It is a very strong packaging, even ideal to travel with. All items are shipped free within the EU, and all items are shipped free worldwide from a minimum order value of 150 EUR.

    For this week only, we over a promotion code that gives a 15% discount on every tie purchased. The promotion runs until Wednesday October 26th at midnight.

    The code is: Handmadeties

    Today is the final day for your GMTO (link: http://www.styleforum.net/t/529493/jeeves-x-vass-mto-and-gmto-central-thread/45#post_8617187)

    We have reached 6 people for the Valway, 2 for the French Oxford, and will place the leather order from our Italian tannery this week.

    If anyone is interested in a single MTO from one of the following leathers, send me a PM and I'll see what we can do :)!

    1. Inca Grain: a soft grain leather made on the best calf sides.

    [​IMG]

    2. Alpine Grain: a tighter grain than Inca, made on the best calf sides.

    [​IMG]

    3. Genuine Buffalo calf, very soft, great grain! A leather with a very deep lustre!

    [​IMG]

    4. Tumbled Calf Sides. Especially no. 3 - 4 - 5 and 9 - 10 are stunning.

    [​IMG]

    5. Anilveau Calf :slayer: with colors such as Toucan, Meleze, Bolet and 'no.22'

    We will be in Budapest again in a couple of weeks, if we need to keep an eye out for something special for members on here, or if anyone has questions for the workshop / Mr. Vass, don't hesitate to contact us. Will post pics of the workshop once we're back!

    Exciting news!

    Rezso, the sales manager from Vass, managed to re-introduce 3 piece shoe trees to Vass. Besides their cool aesthetics, they also fill up the shoes great without overstretching the leather.

    They will soon be available as a pre-order (when production is up and running at full speed), at a special SF price!

    Happy to share our new GMTO with Vass!

    For this one we sourced a true burnishable leather in a nice burgundy shade, called 'Vegano Calf' from the French tannery Annonay. It lends itself perfectly to proper burnishing, and will result in a much more natural looking burnished finish.

    For this GMTO, we chose the Austerity River model on U last, for its elegant lines and to leave plenty of room for a great toe burnish. Combined with the excellent craftsmanship at Vass, you will receive a pair of handwelted shoes in an exclusive color.

    Available at 650 USD excl. VAT, including shoe trees. Worldwide shipping at cost. Payment can be done 50/50. The shoes also come with a tin of Saphir wax and a polishing cloth. Closing date is to be determined, but will be in a couple of weeks probably.

    Send us a PM or contact us directly at contact@jeeves.store

    We received a few questions regarding this GMTO, and to answer all questions here:

    Yes, if you wish to have a specific extra such as rubber toe taps, or a Goyser stitching, this is possible. For each option there is a small increase in price.

    ^^^ It's good to see that kind of flexibility within the context of a GMTO.

    Sadly, your RTW stops at 44.5 and I need a 45.

    @Patrick R: We'll keep that in mind for our future RTW collections!

    Just FYI, every RTW model on the site can be ordered at exactly the same price as we sell the RTW on our site (so without the MTO or single order markup). Unfortunately we can't add the 10% discount to that offer.

    One person comitted to the GMTO, and already a few interested parties.

    We are thinking of opening up this GMTO and entertain orders for any model, for a small increase in price. More work for us, but I think it might be something SF members will appreciate! What do you say?

    Will post outdoor pics tomorrow, weather permitting!

    @Notch I would be curious how that Vegano burgundy compares to the normal Vass Bordeaux. While I don't really want the austerity model you were first proposing, there might be some other models I've been thinking about...
