    Does anyone know if Vass will make a balmoral boot? I was thinking about a Vass version of the Shannon II on the F-last.

    I was planning on just calling and asking, but haven't had time to pick up a calling card. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Any help would be much appreciated.

    ^ I believe they may be able to do it on request especially if they have photos of what you're after. Can't hurt to ask.

    How long is the turn around time from order date to delivery date these days?

    Also, what is the cost for something like F last suede captoe on a single leather sole?

    Thanks a lot for the picture. I would want mine to be a high boot with a perf cap, but that should be more than enough of a picture to get them on the right track. Awesome, thanks!

    I think vass is better suited to making boots than shoes.

    Really nice mix.

    ...remind me how I once had a pair of black 40s Stacy Adams oxfords with natural welts and white welt stitching. Light, natural-colour welt works stupendously well with darker uppers.
