    First of all, I have to believe that they will not make such a cock-up. That's why I asked Reszo to send me a purchase order on Vass letterhead detailing both pairs that I commissioned. So I've got proof of what I ordered. Secondly, he's under instructions not to ship anything till he sends me pix of the completed product and I give the go-ahead to ship.

    Maybe I have to go through a proxy and shell out a coupla hundred bucks more for my 'peace of mind', yeah? LOL.

    I think the idea is to frighten you....if you don't use a Vass proxy and pay a premium.

    I'll not use proxy anyway, I'm in Europe [​IMG]

    But being in business with the different suppliers (B2B) I know that shit happens all the way, and you may receive the wrong goods even having the correct packing list. So I'm not going to say that Vass should be the only angel, I just want to reduce the bad chances.

    True....Im no Vass knowitall but I think the cock-ups start to happen when people modify a shoe design too much.

    "Yeah I'll take a single monk but change the last to U, put a medallion, change the buckles to silver and make it in salmon cordovan."

    These guys are pretty weak in english so I am thinking you gotta keep it as simple as possible. Also, Laszlo Vass is an artist....you know what happens when you tell an artist too much of do this do that. This is the shoe you get:

    So in the event that they do ship you your shoes and they turn out to be of entirely different designs, what are you going to do?

    Rant here that they're incompetent and demand a refund? Take legal action?


    Seriously.

    I think you're getting ahead of yourself fella. Are you a Vass proxy or perhaps a friend of one? O yea...you're a buddy of that Vass proxy from Malaysia...the guy who refused to give me an opinion on Vass sizing since I hadn't ordered through him...he he, figures. Boy, you guys make me laugh...how much do you make on pimping one pair...a hundred bucks? All this drama just for that?
