1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Try guessing which is which. The comparison may be a little unfair since the left pair is new, while the right pair is half a year old.

    AC is a brown. 6125 is a dark red.
    But there's quite a bit of variation within any one Vass color IME.To be sure of a clearer difference u could consider straight dark brown, a nice versatile color

    l to r. .. AC, Dk Brown, 6125 Dark Cog, Red Cog

    I own all these colours and this is by far the best colour reference image I have seen posted in this thread.

    Which one of those do you think matches the C&J cordovan?

    IMO, Antic Cognac. On a side note, I really like the Dark Cognac. If I can ever figure out my sizing in Vass (U last), I think I'm going to get a pair made.

    Just go up 0.5 size up from F, if your F last fits well.

    Are those pairs on one of the Peter lasts or is this what the F last looks like for greater sizes?
    (I am only an EU39.5 in Vass F ;))

    It looks incredibly long in the photo. Must be the angle.

    The F last makes it look that way. Low vamp and low toebox combined with high tongue area.

    Maybe my instep is low. From my perspective, F has a high vamp and toebox. At size 41.5, my F last seems rather stubby.

    I have the weird problem of the shoes hitting my ankles without any insole. Can't be an instep problem, right? As far as I know, my feet are pretty normal.

    I had seen someone mention that Vass is currently on vacation. Is this true and do we know when they will be back?

    It is only the factory that is on a break. The shop and sales email are open.

    so I could place a MTO but it wouldnt be started til the factory reopens. I'm looking to get some shoes for my wedding at the end of October and want to make sure they would be done in time. Anyone know when they reopen and what the usual lead time is til the shoes get shipped?
