    yep, they said 4 weeks for production, which is pretty quick if you ask me! I had it made up in the p2 last and was contemplating between a bal and blucher, but ended up with the latter as I should get more wears with it. Super excited and will post pics once they arrive!

    G, when u said Vass was moving to Goodyear it was like somebody took a dump on a fairy, but then Slew saves the day with the word from the horse's mouth.

    Just doesn't make sense that Vass would go gemming when as someone else said, their brand reputation in i-gent land and all over is founded on


    [​IMG] and 'my love and reverence for the shoemaker's craft'. Sure, maybe they'll do both, but way to diminish the brand's cache. Whatever, I'm appreciating those little bumps on the insole more.

    Assuming 250 working days per year and Vass only uses that shoe tree provider, then it translates to 10 pair of hand welting per day...

    Seems reasonable if they only have one hand welting guy... But do they have only one?

    Unfortunately they didn't have what I wanted in stock.:mad:

    I am still debating whether to special order or not.
