    My compliments on the Vass Budapest - Oxford! Now on my lust list....in shell. And I like your Budapest avatar!

    The Vass aren't mine, they're from the pic of the post I quoted.

    Thanks!

    I actualy like this a lott, prefer it to the VASS, it is more complete with the heel treatment, Il check the Falkirks ... Have a simmilar side scroll (this is the tistle) on my Perth, but as that is dark oak it is not quite as intrusive.

    I'm glad someone's standing up to the no-crease mafia around here.

    Let's hear it for well-loved shoes!

    This is what shoes should look like. Well worn and well kept over many years and looking better for it.
    And...gasp...they're Loakes! Who would have thought they'd last all that time.[​IMG]

    agree. These are some of the best shoe pics I've seen on here.

    Well worn, well cared for leather is art!
