Same same but different ..
Shoefan, many thanks! Your post helps me understand the end result more.
Has anyone had a pair of Vass made in antique cognac scotch-grain? I'm trying to gauge the difference between that, cognac, and dark brown scotch-grain for a pair of boots I want to order. I've tried looking online and through this thread but I haven't found that particular color. Thanks!
Boss. Love the cognac (have a pair of theresianers coming myself).
An update on my return to Vass.
I returned the package through a German postal office using DHL international shipping, which includes insurance and tracking.
The package took several days to arrive in Hungary and I was confident it would soon arrive Mr. Kuti but suddenly the tracking said the package was unable to be delivered and stored.
I called the German DHL customer service and was told the package gets handled in Hungary by the Hungarian postal service EPG.
The package had not yet been sent back to Germany and possibly could be picked up by Mr. Kuti from EPG.
As I don't speak Hungarian to give Vass a call I sent them an email explaining the situation.
I just received following reply
So I can only advise anyone sending a package to Vass to go for FedEx shipping instead of other shipping options as I am afraid packages are likely to be lost by EPG or might at least mean greater effort to Mr. Kuti, like in my case.
Also I'd like to once again stress how satisfied I am with the service of Mr. Kuti and Vass.
They have been an absolut pleasure to deal with, especially looking at what problems I have put them through.
Thanks! And I agree
Your majesty, keep on truckin' you will get there in the end.
I've been trying to look up more information about getting shoes with tapering double-soles. Can anyone point me to a post #?
I was just talking about this here. Now click your heels together three times and say "Son of Saphir, help!". Maybe that will work...
I think this is all relative...
New experiment afoot-- plain-toe Oxfords in patent leather on the P2. I suppose Alden would be the logical alternative at much the same price, but I'm not sure they go wide enough. Other than that, we'd be looking at Maftei (at twice the price) or London (5x).
What so many of us forget is how all shoes look quite different when worn. Details and toe shapes won't appear so aggressive from the distance of 1,5 metres and higher.
