    Sirs, any interest in a group MTO for Carmina's version of the Vass U-cap pictured below? I know we have two for sure (including myself) and one maybe, so we need 3-4 more to get this started. The shoe is all the same color and material, the lower picture just shows a spit-shine on the cap portion of the shoe.

    Specs: dark oak calf, single leather sole, simpson last.

    Hey how did you know about that model? :) We got that model coming in sometime in July in Brown Calf and Tanned Calf, but on the Rain last. It has a medallion though.

    With this much interest in the green strings, no way I'm putting it out on sale! :p I guess you just have to roll the dice and see... :)

    Thanks!


    Getting even more antsy now since my shoes (some spanish brand called Farrutx that had a store on the same street you are on) just broke. Stretched my toes a bit and the leather split from the sole, gah!

    Can anyone comment on how the Armoury last fits? I just saw these:

    http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/news/80231-armoury-negro1

    I'm in the market for a black punched captoe, and these seem to match exactly what I'm looking for. I'm guessing I probably need an 11UK, any chance there's still a pair in that size sitting around?

    Alan See told me this after I told him the Simpson fits me like a glove;

    I would recommend sticking to the Simpson last - the Armoury last is slightly wider than the simpson through the forefoot but skinny through the heel like the simpson. Also, we don't seem to have much armoury last sizes anymore!
