    Tat might be the least-elegant pair of Vass I've seen (meant with all reschpeck to G).
    it's the last that fits him best and fit is paramount... i agree, that the norweger style might be more suitable for the traditional austro-hungarian lasts.

    I agree to fit- but, but the styling, as you said, is not as gracious.

    Cross post from Vass Threak.

    Some Vashelistic Scotch-grain U-Last Norwegian.. Sounds like desert..


    Weird - I'm not keen on them from the looking down shot, but rotating the photograph to get an approximation of the face on view I quite like them. Must be something to do with the pronounced asymmetry of the last. Have you got a proper toe-forward shot?

    Very nice - I'd forego having an all English collection for a pair of those [​IMG]

    I think I've overcome my aversion to shell, particularly with broguing. I've been well and truly indoctrinated.

    I'm still holding out on the hatrred for tassel loafers though [​IMG]

    It's nice to see this shoe posted. I have it and wore it earlier in the week. Without a doubt, it's my most comfortable shoe, and I love its color. I'm not crazy about the looks of the sole, but I love the comfort it provides. Enjoy!
