    A Norweger on a Budapester raised toe last...but on a monk strap is also growing on me

    I find the 3636 last to be the most inelegant one that Vass offers

    Like Fritzl...am not sure I desire 360 goyser stitching

    Am still waiting to hear more about the Mystery Budapester shoemaker.

    Can anyone tell if this is this a single or double sole? (or a double-to-single)

    I own the same Old English 2 in a single leather sole and it looks just like the one pictured

    Agreed. To my eye they look like a single sole.

    Parker - have you figured out your size yet in Vass? Hopefully yes as all the praise heaped upon them is true.

    I have almost the same shoe in a double-to-single. That is a single. Here it is for comparison: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks folks. According to the powers of search function deduction, I am a 41.5 in the F last. I'm going to place an order for the Ye Olde English II and see how it goes. (I'm usually a 8UK and a 8.5/9 US)

    Thinking dark cognac or dark brown. And I like whatever sole treatment is on that shoe above. Sounds like single it is.

    my foot shape asks for it. it's the "Wiener" Leisten and i love it. nvm.

    you wanna hear more about the mbs? [​IMG] we haven't used him, yet. sterling gillette and me have to throw the dices, who is first.

    sg is opting for materna but for a two eyelet derby(pictured in the sf gallery by von Rothbart)

    his name is Karl Weiner, his workshop is in Vienna. i dunno, if he speaks english. if you have more questions ask or pm me.
