    These look great - just got the same, but in calf and with white buckle.

    Nice! I went for the brass buckle as I just always prefer that color for anything bling related.

    Damn, those F monks were the last thing I needed to see.. It's an amazing last.

    Yep. F-last is one of, if not THE best RTW classic round toe last out there. That and EG 202 in C and D widths.

    I recently sold my two pairs of black EG's and figured I could use a pair around the house. I thought these should work well both with suits and more casual outfits that could work with black shoes. Looking forward to wearing them one of these days! Vass - F last - black shell cordovan monks - double sole tapering to single [​IMG]
    Rocking shoes Slewfoot, just a great buy IMO. They are so minimal they'll go with anything black shoes go with IMO. Buckle's different (oops just saw post above) - looks good, the old ones had a tendency to break anyway - inferior alloy, not pure brass. I've changed to square too and I like the way the square and round play off each other. BTW suits around the house? wow, very HRH[​IMG]
    I believe JR's are the default leather sole for Vass these days, but I'd verify with Kolecho.
    +1 JR is default Philo- never seen anything else. and it's generally regarded as the best because of the length of time in the pits - 12 months IIRC.

    single monks are fine, as are black shoes - but this config is just a fail for me, black needs to be shiny for it to look good, shell is poor at holding a shine coz it glows thats why shell looks better in just about every other tone apart from BLACK, these would have looked almost perfect in bordo shell

    Funny as the somewhat casual matte finish is exactly what I was going for with these! I just don't think super shiny shoes fit in with my wardrobe too well.

    yea, well still think bordo would have been better, as i could hardly call black a casual color

    BTW when you back in HK?

    Holy smoke! That Vass cigar cordovan is pretty. If I had to choose only one shoe color, that would be it.

    True, but for my needs these work well.

    Probably not back until September unfortunately.
