Don't we all...
Lovely shot of them in the wild.
no worries. the thread on my maftei's and hofstätters has been more natural from the begin with.
i just said that it looks bright white on my monitor, anyway.
wear them in good health.
my understanding of the vass system has been, that u and f last, then k last, are mto only. the models on the other lasts are produced in certain quantities. curious if this has changed?
i can imagine that ascot orders models, from which he is convinced that they can be sold via his channel. iirc, he has some unusal styles/combinations to offer.
Ascot Shoes does carry Vass inventories in U lasts, accept returns, at a higher price with trees extra. They do charge obscene price on the trees, especially considering that the trees only costs less than 20 EUR. IMO it is better to order through Kolecho or Vass itself.
He charges 40 GBP for the shoe trees. How much does CJ charges for the last trees ?
Why is this in the Vass thread. I put it in the CJ prices thread so show that Vass is not much more than CJ Hgs these days
you'd better read what i wrote.
it's been claimed thousand times or more that vass doesn't carry an inventory on u,f and k lasts as default, hence my assumption that ascot orders them in the styles/colour & material combinations they want.
i cannot care less where people buy or get their shoes at the end or what ascot charges for their services. it's obvious, it's never been the source for people being cost sensitive.
Mid brown Chromexcel P2 last
^ Nice! I swapped out thicker laces for some of mine as well.
+1 they look great! - i am loving the color
You should jump on the Vass CXL wagon! It's a fun ride.
BS only for me now, it keeps the numbers down - but i agree the leather down look great
Your loss! :^)
Dark brown CXL project next Thinking Trad Budapest or Norweger. Might toss a coin when I need to decide.
^ I'd go Norweger and then the Trad Budapest for the Rust CXL! At least that's my eventual plan for the Trad as of this very moment.
