    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    What color? I was going to order a pair, but might as well hold off. Museum calf+Vass' craftmanship=hard to beat

    It will be sad for me to see Vass doing that, imagine a Theresianer in museum calf, oak soles and a fiddle waist. Next will be a vintage (insert color) with antiquing ala GG.

    I prefer a new online e-shop, not so much on misty calf.

    Museum calf for the Ugolini lasts would be okay. But I agreee, thanks but no thanks for any garish antique or fauxe patina aka G&G or ScarpeDiBianco.

    As far as I know they will not be applying any antique or faux patina to their shoes anytime soon. They like their shoes the way they are now and I could not agree more!

    Hey guys, for those who have ordered using member Tombrone as a proxy... which carrier completes the delivery once the shoes get to the US, and how long does it take once the shoes are on US soil?

    I placed my first order with Vass today, expected time to delivery: 6 - 8 weeks. Pictures will be posted upon delivery.

    Mr.Moo, I have some tracking codes from previous proxies, I will send them in the morning!

    Normally it is USPS and it takes 2-4 days.
