    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.

    If we're talking about EG's mink suede, I would prefer Vass' medium brown, FWIW.

    Almost anything, no? Chinos in khaki, navy, or dark green; flannel trousers in grey or a light enough fawn; calvary twills in tan; corduroys in a dark enough brown, etc. Seems like a really versatile color.


    Hm, I might have to bow out then. Looking at my 82 last EG Shannon, I think the shape isn't for me, at least for a chukka. I have a pair of Saint Crispin chukkas on their classic last. If that's like the P2, I'd be onboard. Otherwise, I think you're right that 202-style last might be too round for a plain toe chukka (though, I like my buckle boots).

    I have a pair of St. Crispin's chukkas on the classic last. I don't have a P2 on hand for comparison, but I'm willing to bet the St. C. classic is a lot closer to Vass F and EG 82 than it is to Vass P2.

    I reckon I agree with that assessment.

    One of the customer orders we received today is good for the chukka discussion : F-lasted 85 chukka boot in dark brown scotch grain. I really liked the result

    Not feeling the scotch grain, but that budapester model looks good...

    The suede is not a budapester. It's a longwing variant.

    Some needed CPR for this thread.

    Anyone still interested in a VASS GMTO? Chukka, budapester, double monk, anything...? :bored:

    Think that may be mine. Greg can confirm/deny.

    I'll concoct a couple of options based on what's been discussed in the thread (certainly one of them a chukka) and start gathering interest.


    Yes that budapester on the F is yours and it is gorgeous. Have you not received it yet?

    Oh I did, I got them within 24 hours of it being shipped out. I was just unsure if those were the exact ones in the picture. They really are fantastic. [​IMG]

    Thanks, I was initially considering an austerity brogue but Edouard had this fantastic pair of Budapesters on in a haf sole and I knew I had to have them.

    Can I throw out an idea for the GMTO?

    An oxblood calf Theresianer high blucher boot with P2 last, goyser welt, punched cap toe, no medallion, HAF sole.
