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.

    Thank you.

    Thank you. This is the Budapester in black cordovan with 270 goyser(the standard) Please note this is a short last and somewhat tight fitting in the forefoot area as compared to the 3636.

    lol they do.

    They are on the Budapest last.

    The different colors on the goyser stitchings as well as the sole edges are actually painted on. This is well documented in Vass' book.

    When in doubt, order white or natural color goyser, with natural color sole edges. See if you like the finished shoes. If not, any competent cobblers should be able to convert (i.e. paint) the sole edges and welt to dark brown or black relatively easily. Understandably, this can't be done as effectively the other way around.

    I ordered those rather flashy yellow goyser Cordo's, knowingly that I might get tired of them and have the goyser/sole edge converted someday.

    Such a wonderful shade of red! [​IMG] Are they pure red in real life?

    I would love a side-by-side comparison of red cognac and the new cherry red that surfaced not too long ago.

    Ecstasy - they are not pure red in real life. On my monitor, the images show a very close representation of the true colour. The examples that I saw of he cherry red definitetely look more like a pure red. I'd say these follow a progression in "redness" from Oxblood to Bordeaux to Red Cognac.

    n-domino, lovely looking grain boots!
    The F last does not stop to amaze me, definitely amongst the best looking lasts of all premium RTW makers.
    So happy I got my pair of Vass on it :)
    Do these chukkas come on the F last as well or is it one of the Peter lasts?

    The chukkas are on the f-last. It is a fantastic last. I am curious about trying the new peter last, though. I may have to give that a try in the future.

    Those both look great. I'd love to see some better pics of the tall boot.

    N-domino. That chukka is exactly what I've been looking for! Would you mind sharing where you purchased it? Sorry if I missed it and thanks.

    Thanks man! I got it directly through Vass. Their website is www.vass-cipo.hu You can use their email that's posted there to place an order. I placed this order 5 weeks ago (which is how long it generally takes).

    I'll try and take pics this weekend and post them here. I only have an iphone to work with, though.

    For those who have Vass on New Peter, P2 lasts and RL Marlows and PTBs , how do these lasts differ from RL shoes? Are Vass lasts bulkier?

    Hopefully Vass soon figures out how to properly handsew a Dainite sole to their shoes.
    Those chukkas are very tempting, but no way for me to get a pair of boots without a rubber sole.

    I wish they offered a commando sole that was sleeker, like the carmina one, where you can't tell from the side.

    Can someone explain the difference between the New Peter and P2 lasts? I thought New Peter and P2 were one and the same. Confusion reigns.

    Stunning. I'm looking to order my first Vass and this is making my decision to spend easier and easier.

    Would you say the U last is the most popular last?
