    Also, a word of caution; when ordering loafers from VASS :http://www.vass-cipo.hu/Eng/Modellek_08_Olasz/Modell_08_070_Kicsi.html , specify to move apron 1/2 inch towards the heel of the shoe. I explain: when you look at VASS loafer online it looks perfectly proportionate, but when you receive final product you would see that the apron placed too forward (too close to the toe) and thus creates very unelegnat balance.

    hmmm, i'm sensing that some blue 3-eyelet bluchers on the F last will pop up soon...

    Love those longwings, would probably prefer them on a chunkier last though.
