    Razor is Reszo...its pronounced Razor where you slur the 'Z'....like Erasure without the E.

    His contact is the Vass email on their site.

    Reszo pronounced literally sounds like Dustin Hoffman's character in Midnight Cowboy (Ratso).

    Razor sounds cool...like Vass.

    I had some problems when ordering my first pair, but this was back when Mr Kuti wasn't the man behind their emails. His English is good and proper, even with technical terms and such.

    No no no....

    €95 was referring to the belt I was quoted. I ordered 2 pairs of MTO's and wanted matching belts to
    go with the suede/scotchgrain and calf.

    Think the belts were €95, then they reduced the belts down to €50 as goodwill, as I was ordering 2
    pairs of MTO's. Pictures to come shortly....I think I need to change my profile name to Ilovevass,
    don't think I have seen any Lobbs as stunning as my Vass.

    I had a choice of shipping to my UK home address or my Swiss work address. Both were €20 with Fedex.
    I choose UK as the Swiss tend to add a whopping 40% to my boots if it's coming from Fedex. As been stun before
    with handling and brokerage fees the lot. I am sure Fedex short for some Federal Agency.

    Can anyone compare fit between the AE 5 last and the Vass F last?

    If you wear a US9D in the 5 last, you are DA man. [​IMG]

    How about we just let Vass do they want to do and we can decide if we want to buy the shoes or not? Sounds fair to me.

    May I ask what colour these beautiful Vass Monk are derived from?
    As they look different in your 2 photos....

    I love the last, are they the K last? I need to take this photo to John Lobb and ask
    them to copy Vass!!

    Is there a Vass sizing thread running around here somewhere? I feel like I saw one, but maybe I am remembering wrong.

    I never presumed that we were in a position to do otherwise. Input was requested and given. But I doubt anyone here imagines that they are dictating terms to Vass.
