    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    @CLTesquire Will take some comparison pictures tomorrow! I'd say it's a different shade entirely.

    We were unable to take a picture of the Vegano Burgundy calf outdoor because of the rain that wouldn't stop. We'll try again tomorrow. In the meantime, I did source a picture of the Vegano Burgundy calf used on a pair of Carmina shoes (Carmina Burgundy Calf Adelaide, picture used with Leaves' permission). The shoes in the picture are not too burnished, and you can find a few more exampels on Google that are burnished heavier, but I beleive the color tone in this picture is closest to what we bought from the merchant.

    For those interested in knowing, the leather is tanned by Annonay. Their site reads 'Semi-bright aniline finish, not dyed-through, with full round handle. Natural fine and regular natural grain with slightly waxy touch. An article for fine footwear.', it is a 12/14mm thickness (medium thickness) and is 'Polishable or burnishable'.

    Daylight picture (hopefully) tomorrow!

    Ok that clears things up. Don't stress on taking pictures on my account because I do have a pair of Carmina made from this leather so I can compare them with Vass Bordeaux (which I also have) directly.

    For extra information, I should say that the Vegano Burgundy, at least in its untreated state, is lighter and slightly more reddish than the Carmina's posted by CLTesquire. Just thought I should mention.

    I'll post a comparison pic tomorrow!

    We are now with 2 comitted to this GMTO, and a few more people have showed interest! We are looking for exactly 6 orders, not more unfortunately due to the size of the leather.

    Also, still raining.

    Taking pre-orders on a model arriving in December: Vass Old English II in gold musuem on the F last. Single leather sole with rubber toe tips. Will be on the website for approximately 600 USD excl. VAT, sizing ranging from 40.5 to 44.5 (smaller and larger sizes are possible on request).

    Taking Pre-order because we received(d) a lot of interest for this exact same model as a MTO, that we decided to offer it as a RTW.

    More models in the make as well, all in good time :)

    PM me if interested!

    Here is Vegano Burdeos (Vegano Burgundy in Carmina terms) brand new, with only clear wax on the toe. Indirect morning light. Its an excellent colour.

    Those boots should come with a "may cause slack-jawed drooling" warning.

    Any update on the 3-piece shoe trees? Would love to pick up some to replace my standard ones.

    An order for the 3 piece shoe trees has been placed, and I expect them to arrive later this week, or next week.

    We will have a small range of F and U last 3 piece shoe trees, sizes 40 to 45, but will take single orders once the stock runs out.
