    MTO directly through Vass. Transacted with the manager, Mr. Kuti

    Specs that Vass changed:

    I requested light brown edge trim instead received dark brown, looks black
    I requested cognac shell instead received "whiskey"
    I requested double sole instead received HAF sole

    I think I prefer the screw ups over my specs. Couldn't be happier. It was such an odd process though since I didny realize I placed an order until after the shoes were made. It's typical for shoe companies to request 1/2 or even all of the MTO fee in the beginning but that wasn't the case. Didn't pay until 6 days ago.

    Shell MTO
    Metal Toe taps
    Lasted trees
    Shipping
    Wire transfer fee
    No duties :slayer:

    Total damage: $777

    Thanks, they are more like Ravello (if comparing to Alden) than Whiskey so it can be misleading

    NAMOR, those are stunning. No idea how the specs you requested would have turned out, but their "mistakes" look brilliant to me. $777 seems like an outstanding price.

    I agree, they have a great eye. $777 is an outstanding price for MTO shell. All the Vass regulars have been preaching this for a while and now I believe. I believe

    NAMOR, good job on shoes. I think they would look better on 3636 last but that's just me. How come you weren't dinged by FedEx? What is the dealio?

    Thanks Tom. Got word today from Vass telling me the same. Guess I'll go with the Topy over Vibram.

    Namor,

    Nice shoes, man. Like the colour and how the F last looks in that model.

    NAMOR,
    I was expecting cognac to be a little darker, but your pictures look great. I am trying to choose between whiskey & cognac.
