    I asked for saddle shell, which is similar to whiskey - a bit less yellow and more orange. Cant wait!

    Actually anyone who loves shoes should get it. A nice easy read..

    That book combined with MarcelHun (sp?) youtube videos are perfect primers for seeding the desire to own hand welted shoes.

    Sounds very dangerous for the wallet.

    Indeed - but Vass shoes are not more expensive than many shoes of lesser construction quality.

    I'll admit to being fascinated with minutia. I find myself picking this book up over and over again. I especially appreciate how thoroughly it covers all aspects of the process from leather production/tanning to finishing.

    About the only thing not covered is what to feed the cows.

    As I already have several pairs of gator/croc shoes (not Vass) I wanted the wingtip in burgundy shell or calf. But they had very few burgundy shoes in stock.



    Perhaps my experience is atypical, but prior to my trip, I emailed them and received prompt and friendly response.

    Fritzl help me out here, but I think the general though is that all Vass shoes should have double sole, goyser stiching preferably in the off-yellow coloring. Also F U K lasts are not allowed on this site
