    The black Budapester on Halmos' new website is even nicer-looking than the Vass model that I just ordered. [​IMG]

    pretty equal to my eye. regarding michael's statement i dunno what the clicker has to do with the last shape, though. you never stop learning.

    the "norweger" is quite nice. imo, it beats the Dover by a far mile.

    also good to see that they use the same tree maker as operation paprika. noice.

    That norweger is off the hook.

    Very nice, but the one that really does it for me is the buffalo-grain wing-tip. Not the color, of course...

    The tan wing-tip Oxford is also very well-proportioned.

    Thanks, in part, to all the porn here, just pulled the trigger on my first Vass. Hope to report back next month.

    really?

    it's a nice pair of shoes. though, it leaves me pretty cold, due to it's lack of authenticity, imo. in my personal pow another hybrid attempt to "copy" british or eyetalian styles.

    Well, yes-- it is sort of British/Italian. But nicely done.

    No idea on prices.

    Any place to see the shoes and try'em on in NYC? No one seems to answer their phone.
