    Dull moment....Never...."Life is not complex. We are complex. Life is simple, and the simple thing is the right thing"....By O Wilde.

    Can you take a birdseye view of the shoes?

    You're spot on ArchAngel -

    A picture definitely paints a thousand word - Looks unfinished and Vass should not have sent them to you.
    But the problem easily remedied using Sapir cream....time to pull up your sleeves or send them back.

    I'm at it right now, in fact.

    Let's see how they look after a night's work...

    MRMan, your pair looks very classy. In my opinion, it's amongst the nicest pairs that have been posted in weeks. One of the rare derbies which I really like. Way nicer than an EG Dover for example.

    Louis XIV,

    sounds like we're brewing for WWIII....

    "Way nicer than an EG Dover for example"

    I have a pair of the rare Dover on the 82 last
    and a pair of JL Chambord, gonna wait until my
    Vass derby arrives and I'll give my personal
    review & road test.....

    I agree, it's not only the model, it's the F last man, a killer in that shoe

    What exactly does "Italian polished" mean?

    (And is there any chance of anyone humouring my request for last/sole comparison pics?)

    It is like a dirty quick polish, it is alright but don't expect it last long or look as good as a proper split-polish.

    After getting the size 0.5 off in my first order i returned the shoes and added another pair and three belts. Just have to say that Rezo is absolute pleasure to deal with and I can't wait for the shoes and belts to arrive, just like waiting for christmas! Might have to look in to this museum calf now, if it's anything like the stuff they make for JL I will have to get my hands on a par!

    Beautiful model though! Please post pictures once you have polished them.

    I am looking at Vass website pictures and compare the pictures on the Vass porn thread posted by members here - we should be receiving royalty
    for the way we promote their product.

    Their website pictures are a big turn-off.

    Very true. Beautiful photos here. Just posting the link since it gives at least a comparative feel for what's meant by Italian polish.
