I endorse this post! :^)
^^ my logic is infallible ^^
Good morning everyone, it was great to read the posts regarding my new shoes. Hey Slewfoot, I love the cigar! Gdot, you're absolutely correct.
I've dropped Vass an email to hear their thoughts. They are a friendly bunch and the whole buying process has been fantastic, so I'm expecting this to come to a very amicable end.
Let's draw a line under this. I'll let you know how things conclude.
Gdot, is that model on your Vass list?
Perhaps - but in pebble grain. Pretty much a total copy of Rikod's version.
Although it is still months before I have to commit to anything. I reserve the right to change my tune.
ha, have you ever sent a pair of shoes to budapest?, good luck. If you really want to do that I recommend to sell them and order new ones if they have the shell.
internal miscommunication, hehe. I have 20+ pair of Vass and I can tell you that more than half are different than what I exactly ordered, maybe I understand these things because I used to live in a very similar place. They do what they want, period. Live with it or order thru a proxy that takes responsibility for the details. I've even come to like it, i'm all exited waiting for my orders to see what they decided to do, it's really fun, just keep an open mind and you will like it much more, you know, that whiskey is 100 times nicer than cigar. I just ordered a pair with natural edge soles and they sent them painted, after a few days i realized I was an idiot and they look much better the way they are. And I totally agree with slewfoot, be nice no matter what.
I know exactly their thoughs, word by word, If you want to I can PM you their response so you dont have to wait
i love everything about your make-up, especially the last. wish they fit
Yea the lower heel cup on the derby causes slippage, an oxford may have worked, but just a half size too big, kills me cause the leather is unreal
i laughed out loud. i have to try it...
on a serious note to all the shell experts, which i'm not: can the shell not be darkened over the time with your tlc and receive a personal flair?
Alden shells can either darken or lighten with exposure to sunlight. #8 lightens and whiskeys darken.
+1 their seems to be some sort of "shell equilibrium" to which all colors gravitate towards
whiskey -> ravello -> SHELL EQUILIBRIUM <-cigar <-#8
Very good NAMOR - so can I expect my whiskey's to turn into ravello? I could stick them on a sun bed to expedite the darkening..
afaik, alden shell is different to this.
I could not live with this. I think I will have to go to Budapest and try them on if I want some Vass.
+1 - I've been sent a single monk when i ordered a double, an Oxford when I ordered a Blucher, and the wrong color a couple times. c'est la vie mes amis- c'est la Vass
