    This is well done - I'm going to show my cobbler this picture for reference.

    Haven't you guys learned? Suede goes well with ANY style of shoe.

    I do not have any Vass shoes, but I have been looking at this thread. I would like to know how the F last compares to the Crockett & Jones 337 last, if anyone has both. I have multiple pairs of C&J on the 337 and I am 10.5E. I wanted to know if the F last has more or less toe room and the general fit.

    These look great TRINI! Is that the P2 last as well, or...?


    They do seem to go with everything I have. Great shoe. Gotta love Vass' suede, very nice.


    I read that a lot on Styleforum.net and Stijlforum.nl. I think it's something you only (really) see when looking at pictures of the shoe. In person, it's very hard to tell and I already think a double sole wears better.


    Thanks Achillus!


    You are right in the sense that suede is more casual than calf and that a blucher is more casual than a balmoral. However, I think a balmoral in suede can look just great paired with a mid-grey or lighter-than-navy suit. Besides, suede is the bomb bro.


    WORD.

    My new VASS. Just wearing them a bit at the office.

    I wanted something a bit more casual and I am happy with how things turned out.

    I'm pretty happy. They looked like they were going to be tight when I pulled them out of the box but they fit fine.
