    So that's 2 confirmed, 1 maybe, both for option 2 and option 3!

    Any ideas thoughts about the models, or about what can be done with the extra leathers, are of course welcome!

    Thank you sir. Answered perfectly, despite the confusing form of question.

    Some more interest in model # 2 and 3 from a few Dutch members, but nothing definite yet.

    It's a great deal on some very exciting models :slayer:

    Update for these three beautiful Vass GMTO's (remind you that the pictures are not sample pictures, they are just to show the intended model). Through this group MTO, it would be great to introduce some leather options for Vass. A new range of French calf, genuine Buffalo leather, and more Inca Grain colors!

    I'm legitimately thinking of flying to Budapest to get properly fitted in Vass so I can start buying their shoes and boots.

    I actually compiled a large list / database of forum posts discussing Vass sizing compared to other makers. If you let me know your size in other makers, I might be able to determine your size in Vass!

    I would be curious to see if they would take pictures of their lasts on a brannock device. I have never seen that done, but think it might provide some useful information (I could be wrong).

    We are contemplating on a special order cordovan belt, made by our own manufacturer in Hungary, to match Vass cordovan shoes. Who would be interested in a custom ordered cordovan belt (32mm or 35mm width, leather lined and raised. Color options, if we are able to source enough Shell Cordovan, are Bourbon, no.8, Dark Cognac and Black).

    If there is enough interest, we will start exploring options!

    Notch,

    What price range do you expect for a cordovan belt?

    Will try to get a price estimate on this, but first need to hear back from about 8+ merchants who has cordovan in stock :)!

    Still looking for some more members to join these beautiful Vass GMTO's (remind you that the pictures are not sample pictures, they are just to show the intended model). Through this group MTO, it would be great to introduce some leather options for Vass. A new range of French calf, genuine Buffalo leather, and more Inca Grain colors!

    If we don't reach the required 6 for each model, we will try to work something out with the leather merchant (most probably just purchase some hides ourselves, to be made into shoes!)

    Just sent a PM to all interested members! A good 2 weeks to go before the GMTO closes. A group order is a great opportunity, and probably the only way, to own a pair of hand welted Vass shoes in an exclusive leather!

    Anilveau calf, Buffalo and Inca grain! Need we say more :satisfied:!

    Looks like the interest for proposal #1 has dropped, so I think it is better to continue wit proposal 2 and 3 only.

    French oxford in genuine mahogany Buffalo leather and dark brown suede, and the 'Valway' in Anilveay 9231 and Inca Grain!
