    Luk-cha, your austerity wingtips look great - better than unworn Vass flaunted around here.

    Never heard of people doing this to suede ... I usually just spray (AE suede spray) once and let the shoes be. Are you dubbing your suede?

    just thourght i'd add a few new shots as i have been playing around with my settings, these first U-Last ones are one of only 2 pairs Vass have ever made AFAIK, one with their standard painted welted finish and this is there other wish is naturalone of Vass's strong area's is the ability to do seamless rear's!
    the style is based on the famous Corthay Arca(sp?) but with 3 eyelets

    part 2 of today's little pictorial, Vass Old English with Medalion in Horween Whiskey Shell Cordovan which i treat quite meanly, as perhaps you can tell from the scrape's and guage's.
